CHEETAH'S RUN - 9 Nights
Embark on an extraordinary fly-in safari from and back to Maun, exploring the diverse landscapes of Botswana over nine nights. Begin with a three-night stay at Zarafa in the Selinda Reserve, relishing luxurious tented accommodations amidst prolific wildlife, including elephants and lions, while enjoying game drives and boat safaris along the Selinda Spillway. Move to the heart of the Okavango Delta for three nights at Mombo Camp, where elevated tented suites provide panoramic views of floodplains, and renowned game drives offer encounters with the Big Five. Conclude the journey with three nights at Jacks Camp in the Makgadikgadi Pans, experiencing the unique desert safari ambiance with meerkat interactions, guided walks with the San Bushmen, and quad biking on the expansive salt pans. Throughout, charter flights connect these remarkable destinations, offering not only seamless travel logistics but also breathtaking aerial perspectives of Botswana's stunning wilderness.
Day 1 to 3: Zarafa Camp - Selinda Reserve
Fly from Maun to Zarafa
The camp was originally called Zibadianja when it opened in 2008, but its beautiful design, “green” construction and amazing position overlooking the lagoon quickly made it the beloved of all who laid eyes on it. So it became Zarafa, in name and in spirit.
Just four magnificent tented villas and a spectacular main area, all raised on decking to take advantage of views over the lagoon, reflect the desire for exclusivity and privacy which inspired Zarafa’s design.
Construction took eco-friendly principles to new levels of excellence and focussed on recycling, with repurposed teak railroad sleepers for flooring and furniture made from mahogany washed up in the 2005 tsunami, commissioned in an effort to give Indonesians affected by the disaster much-needed work.
The result is a safari camp like no other, and one that you will quickly fall in love with and want to return to, time and again.
- Zarafa Camp (Fully inclusive)
Day 4 to 6: Mombo - Okavango delta
Fly from Jao to Mombo
Mombo Camp is located in the Mombo Concession, on the northern tip of Chief’s Island within the Moremi Game Reserve. The area boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators which begin virtually on Mombo’s decks, with the surrounding floodplains teeming with game year-round.
Built under large, shady trees, Mombo’s nine spacious en-suite tents are raised two metres from the ground providing excellent views, with a long veranda, a sala and indoor and outdoor showers. The camp's main living, bar and dining areas are under thatch, while the boma adds traditional flavour to delicious dinners under the stars. There are two plunge pools in which to soak and a gym to work off the excellent food.

Day 7 to 9: Jack's Camp - Makgadikgadi
Fly from Mombo to Jack's
While on a trapping expedition in the Makgadikgadi Pans during the 60's, Jack Bousfield stumbled upon a site that so captured his imagination, he set up camp under an acacia with the unshakeable expectation that others would feel the same. Ten green roomy and stylish canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms and indoor and outdoor showers (for those who want to feel the Kalahari breeze on their skin) have been fashioned in classical style and are set into a palm grove creating an oasis of civilisation in what can be the harshest of stark environment.
The guides at Jack's Camp are an erudite breed. Often graduate students who combine research with guiding, they team up with a small group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen to guide our Guests on a morning’s walks and game drives. The response from those who have been there is always the same: first your question is echoed, 'Jack's Camp?' followed by a reflective pause/ 'It's different."
