Khumaga – Boteti River, Makgadikgadi Pans

imagesDay 1-2: Depart from Maun in the morning for Njuca Hills by road, on the edge of the great Makgadikgadi Pans in the Kalahari Desert. The saltpans are among the largest in the world. The Adventurer campsite is beautifully positioned under shady trees on the banks of the Boteti River. Activities include game drives, concentrating on the opportunistic birthing time of desert animals.

Deception Valley, Central Kalahari Game Reserve

imagesDay 3, 4 - 5: Depart overland to our private Adventurer campsite in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve with lunch en route. This prehistoric riverbed, is very appealing after brief rains, as it is covered with nutritious grasses that attract herds from all over the reserve. These large congregations of desert wildlife with their young are followed by predators into the broad riverbed, all of which makes for outstanding viewing. On Day 4 or 5 we enjoy a full-day wildlife viewing activity (with picnic lunch), taking in the game-rich Pipers Pans area of the Kalahari.

Xigera Camp, Okavango Delta

imagesDay 6 - 7: After a light breakfast we depart overland to Maun, flying by light aircraft in the afternoon to Xigera within the Moremi Game Reserve. Xigera is the ultimate Delta experience, with serene waters flowing through innumerable channels around remote islands and a profusion of plant and animal life. Xigera Camp is a luxury tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Enjoy a true Delta experience while you sit back in a mokoro (dugout canoe) and silently glide through the tranquil Okavango waterways. Xigera consists of 10 luxuriously furnished tented rooms with en-suite facilities. Birding in the area is excellent, with Pel’s Fishing Owl, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane, African Skimmers and a host of eagles, vultures, raptors and kingfishers to be found.

Flight to Maun
