Day 1: Okavango Delta
On arrival this afternoon there will be time for a safety briefing and a short evening walk in the wild bush.
Day 2 Walking Safaris in the Delta
We may have been kept awake at night by the sound of elephants feeding around our tents or lions calling as they patrol their territory but days on safari must still start early whilst the day is cool. And when the day heats up we will return to the shade of the camp or find a natural, crystal clear pool to have a refreshing swim. In the early evening we will venture out again and marvel at the solitude and the extraordinary light across this extraordinary landscape as the sun sinks below the horizon.
Day 3: Follow Game on Foot
Today we have the freedom to head in any direction that takes our fancy. On safari it is important to be flexible and to allow your days to be dictated by the movement of the game rather than the time. Perhaps we will have heard the sawing rasp of a leopard at night and we may spend the morning searching for this most elusive of cats. Or head to the nearby hippo pools to sit quietly and be entertained by their constant antics.
Back in camp after dark the incredible night sky will light up our camp fire stories
Day 4: Selinda Reserve
After breakfast a short flight takes us onto the Selinda Reserve. During your drive from the Selinda airstrip to Selinda Explorers Camp you will begin to feel the true wildness of this remote part of Botswana. It is the perfect camp to safari on foot from as roads are few and far between yet the waters of the Spillway provide a lifeline for the wildlife.
During your stay you will spend most of the day on foot but there will also be some canoeing involved. This afternoon we will take a gentle stroll in the vicinity of the camp before returning to camp for the obligatory sundowners and a delicious meal to set us up for an active day ahead.
Day 5: Walking & Canoe Safaris
During the heat of the day we will siesta in camp before heading out again in the late afternoon as the day starts to cool down. Perhaps we will opt to jump in a canoe and paddle downstream passing a rich tapestry of water birds, always on the look out for the hippos who love to call the Spillway their home.
Downstream we will find something that attracts our attention and gets us out of the canoes and back on foot. Perhaps the early call of a Giant Eagle Owl or the alarm call of an impala herd as the day draws to and end and leopards start to move.
Day 6: Selinda Spillway Walking Safari
Upstream from camp the waters of the Spillway back up into a series of gorgeous lagoons surrounded by towering cathedral mopane woodland. Perhaps this is where our walk will lead us this morning.
After another delicious lunch back at camp it will be time to explore the opposite banks of the Spillway. Hidden a little away from the main channel there is special spot favoured by the game where they can drink and feed undisturbed.
Day 7: Selinda Explorers Camp
Sitting still in the bush and waiting for the wildlife to come to you is the best way to safari! So this morning we may sit and enjoy the view from the camp. This is a time to reflect on all you have seen, experienced and learnt before taking a light aircraft flight onwards to your next destination.
