Day 3 and 4 - Lebala Camp, Kwando
Fly from Kasane to Kwando
Lebala is situated in the south of the Kwando concession, adjacent to the head waters of the Linyanti marshes that form the boundary between Botswana and Namibia. The southerly flowing Kwando river disappears into the vast marshland before emerging as the Linyanti river. The triangle formed by this vast wetland is home to the Mamili National Park in Namibia.
Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’ in Setswana and the scenery is dominated by vast plains with scattered palms and tree islands backed by wooded savannahs. This wild expanse contrasts with the casual understated elegance and luxury of the camp itself.
This special ecosystem is home to a wide variety of Africa’s plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe and tsessebe and also provides refuge to lechwe, waterbuck and the shy sitatunga.
The camp itself is comprised of eight custom designed tents, with unique mosquito net walls, allowing an unobstructed flow of cooling breezes and stunning views. Each spacious tent has its own viewing deck, bathroom and luxurious double outside showers.

Day 5 and 6 - PomPom Camp, Okavango Delta
Fly from Kasane to PomPom
Pom Pom is located on an 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 wilderness experience. Both land and water activities are available here subject to water/flood levels.

Day 7 and 8 - Gunns Camp, Okavango Delta
Fly from PomPom to Gunns
Overlooking the legendary Chiefs Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunn's Camp is one of the few remaining vintage safari camps. Set under leafy palms and African Ebony to blend naturally with its unique surroundings, Gunn's Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. This is a water activities only camp and is a very relaxing place to immerse yourself in the Okavango Delta.
- Gunns Camp (BLD)
Day 9 and 10 - Tau Pan, Central Kalahari
Fly from Gunns to Tau Pan
Tau Pan Camp is an excellent luxury permanent tented camp situated in a prime position deep within the Central Kalahari National Park. It really is remote, being around 50km from the nearest lodge and over 100km from the park entrance to the northeast, to the south there really is nothing for over 200km. The network of pans to the west of camp are very little-visited, more often than not you will have the place completely to yourselves. Tau Pan Camp is a very comfortable affair, set up on a ridge and with views out over the open pan from which it takes its name. The camp is centred centred on a modest building with comfortable lounge and dining areas. There is also a small gift-shop. Out front there is a campfire area on the deck and a small swimming pool off to the right. Guest accommodation is in eight very pleasant suites rooms, accessed by ground-level pathways and with private verandahs and bathrooms. One of the rooms is a family unit, which has a small additional bedroom.
