Day 3, 4 & 5:
After breakfast, we will transfer you to O R Tambo International Airport for you to catch your flight to Maun - Botswana and then your onward chartered flight on a light aircraft to your lodge’s private airstrip found in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. This huge wetland delta found in the centre of Botswana’s arid Kalahari is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the remotest places on earth. The delta with its virtually untouched natural beauty is fed by the Okavango River and is one of Africa’s greatest wilderness destinations. The vast remoteness, the magnificent beauty, the unpolluted environment, the natural silence and the spectacular night sky where you find stars so bright that you feel you can reach out and touch them, makes for a truly revitalizing and soul searching experience. The delta swells to three times its permanent size when the floods peak in the dry winter months between June & August, attracting an abundance of wildlife and hundreds of bird species. Explore this unique and beautiful stretch of Africa on motorized boats and/or on traditional “mokoro” canoe rides and/or on guided nature walks with your camp rangers. On each of these included excursions you have an excellent chance of spotting elephant, lion, Cape buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, African wild dog, hyena, hippo and crocodile, as well as a host of other animals and wonderful creatures. Bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunn’s Camp is one of the last few vintage safari camps left in Southern Africa. This luxury tented lodge is set under the coolness of Lala palms and African Ebony trees on the banks of the Moremi River in the heart of the Okavango Delta, overlooking the legendary Chief’s Island. This eco-friendly camp was designed to offer guests a fine balance of modern comforts without isolating them from the sights and sounds of the wilderness.
