Day 1 International outbound flight

International outbound flight

Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Maun.

Day 2 Moremi Wildlife Reserve

Maun , Moremi Wildlife Reserve

On arrival into Maun you will be met by your light aircraft pilot who will fly you over the Delta into the heart of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve where you'll be staying at Camp Okuti in a two-bedroom family unit. This camp is well set up for children of all ages, complete with a swimming pool.

Day 3 Moremi Wildlife Reserve

Moremi Wildlife Reserve

Morning and afternoon activities in this wildlife hot spot. You can enjoy game drives and boat cruises from Okuti and there is a very interesting heronry located close to the lodge. The guides are well trained to engage children during their safari, and will provide a bag of inspiring goodies to keep their interest.

Day 4 Shinde Concession

Moremi Wildlife Reserve , Shinde Concession

Today you'll take a light aircraft out of the National Park and in to the Shinde Private Concession. Here you will be met by your private guide and taken to the Footsteps camp where you will have sole use of this beautiful camp. This is a safari camp as it used to be - rustic - yet comfortable with no detail overlooked. You will stay here for three nights on a private basis. The camp comes complete with a private guide, chef and camp staff.

Day 5 Shinde Concession

Shinde Concession

The Young Explorers program is great for families who are a little bit more adventurous and want to experience a bit more of the real side of camping in the bush. The camp is a little rustic but far from being basic. It really is an outstanding experience. The camp mainly concentrates on walking as the name suggests, but mokoro trips are also possible and game drives are available if you wish. This is a fantastic experience and you will learn so much along the way from the expert guides.

Day 6 Shinde Concession

Shinde Concession

A second full day at Footsteps. The guides are fabulous at engaging the whole family and teaching young safari goers how to track game, recognise spoor, identify birds, whittle a spear and build small animal traps as the bushmen do.

Day 7 Central Kalahari

Shinde Concession , Central Kalahari

Another light aircraft will take you out of the delta and across to the dry desert of the Central Kalahari. Two nights here introduces you to the life of the San bushmen and offers totally different scenery to where you've already been.

Day 8 Central Kalahari

Central Kalahari

Activities from Dinaka focus on exploring the arid landscape in search of the rare brown hyena, Kalahari lion, oryx and bat-eared fox - all animals you don't find in the Okavango Delta. If you're feeling adventurous it is also possible to spend the night sleeping out on the pans under the stars

Day 9 International return flight

Central Kalahari , International return flight

You can enjoy one final early morning activity before bidding farewell to your guides and flying back to Maun to connect with your onward travel arrangements.

Day 10 International return flight

International return flight

Arrive home today to complete your journey.
