Day 1 to 2 - Kwetsani Camp, Okavango Delta
Fly from Maun to Kwetsani
Island tree-houses on beautiful floodplainsLocated in the centre of the Jao Concession, Kwetsani Camp is situated on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees. The surrounding floodplains are home to a number of “Delta specials” – species that are found in few other places on Earth. Some of these may even be seen from the privacy of one of the five “tree-house” chalets, beautifully furnished en-suite units each comprising a bedroom and lounge, and made of canvas, wood and glass. The raised dining room, lounge and bar area, from where sweeping vistas of the surrounding floodplains stretch to the horizon, often catches the gentle breeze blowing across the waving reeds. A plunge pool with loungers is just right for those sunny afternoon siestas. Water based activities include boating, traditional mokoro's, walks and game drives - subject to water levels.

Day 3 to 5 - Chitabe Camp, Okovango Delta
Fly from Kwetsani to Chitabe
A classic Okavango game-viewing destination, Chitabe Camp is situated in a private concession area on an island in the south-east of the Okavango Delta. Playing host to a breathtaking mosaic of open floodplains, waterways, marshlands, dry acacia and mopane woodland, riverine forest and open grasslands, the area is famed for its incredible numbers and diversity of wildlife, in particular predators. The camp’s eight spacious Meru-style tents are built on elevated wooden decks amongst trees. Each tent has twin beds, en-suite facilities and an indoor as well as an outdoor shower. The thatched dining, pub and lounge areas are built on raised decks to provide superb views across the floodplain, and a pool allows you to cool off in the heat of the day. Game drives and walks (subject to availability) and no water activities.

Day 6 to 8 - Savuti Camp, Savute Channel, Linyanti
Fly from Chitabe to Savute
Experience the wonders of the Savute Channel! Savuti Camp is situated in the private Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel, famous as a sporadic and unusual watercourse. Between 1980 and 2008 it stopped flowing altogether, creating a ribbon of grassland. Surprisingly, the Channel began to flow once more, becoming a deep, clear waterway harbouring hippo and aquatic life while wildlife had to adapt to a new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it brought with it. Of recent the channel has dried up again proving how dynamic the delta is. This intimate camp's en-suite accommodation is in seven large walk-in tents, including a family unit that is raised off the ground. From the camp's thatched dining area, a small pool and large viewing area with fire deck extend outwards on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful view of the Channel and its wildlife. Game drives and walks. Water activities are subject to water levels.
