Our aim is to provide the ultimate safari experience. The focus is to give our guests a journey through the diverse landscape of the Okavango Delta and an understanding of the ecosystems, flora and fauna of this truly unique area.

This safari takes place in a private concession area of over 2500 sq kilometres, which gives us a lot of space. While you’re here, you probably won’t see anyone else.

We have three different camps, all in diverse areas offering a unique experience of the Okavango Delta’s wildlife, birds and habitat. Throughout your stay with us you will have access to electricity, ensuite showers and most importantly exceptional delta views in all camps.

DAY 4 MOKOLOWANE – Morning game drive. This camp is on the Matsebe river system and features wide open flood plains interspersed with Mokolowane palms, favorite food of elephant and baboon. It is also a good area for plains’ game. Alternatively take a peaceful mokoro trip up the river and enjoy the tranquility of the delta from our dug out canoes.
