Botswana & Zimbabwe Combo: Delta & Rivers – 8 days (Accommodated)
The Okavango Delta is exceedingly beautiful. A jewel in the middle of the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta is an isolated, lush green paradise with some of the richest wildlife in the world. The maze of waterways, lagoons, vast grassy plains and palm-fringed and wooded islands is home to crocodile, hippo, elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, giraffe, wild dog, rare antelope and around 400 bird species.

Moremi Crossing (safari tent, fully inclusive)
Moremi Crossing is situated on a small palm fringed and treed island called Ntswi which is surrounded by Moremi’s game-rich seasonal floodplains. Moremi Crossing is a scenic 20 minute flight from Maun.
The central lodge area houses a large open plan deck that has spectacular far reaching views over the Boro River onto Chief’s Island. The whole camp is shaded by magnificent Llala Palms, Giant Ebony, Mangosteen, Sausage and Giant Fig trees. Luxury accommodation is in 16 meru-style large safari tents, each with its own private wooden deck, magical views over the Boro River and en-suite bathrooms consisting of shower and toilet.
Time slows down at Moremi Crossing, a water-based camp, as you have the chance to experience the Okavango Delta and its animals from a slower and closer perspective: whilst on foot or silently being poled by mekoro through the Delta’s waterways in search of birds and animals. Game walks are conducted on Chief’s Island where you may come across numerous animal not to mention a wide selection of birds and insects – guides do not carry a rifle.
Pom Pom Camp (safari tent, fully inclusive)
Pom Pom Camp is located on Pom Pom Island in a private concession situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta and on the head waters of the Xudum river system. The area lies on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve and offers superb Okavango scenery and a true Okavango experience. Accommodation consists of nine luxury safari tents in true traditional safari style, all with full en-suite semi open ablution facilities. The main building is attractively designed and constructed of thatch and canvas and comprises lounge, dining, bar and pool areas, as well as a gift shop and the boma area.
Activities include game drives, night drives, mekoro trips and walks. Guests have the opportunity of seeing all major predators, a variety of big game and plains game, as well as an abundance of bird life. Please note: As is common amongst many safari camps in Botswana, game rangers conducting walks do not carry a rifle at Pom Pom Camp.
