Tents have their own eco-friendly outdoor shower heated by solar power. There is a Family Tent sleeping four (2 adults and 2 children) and a Honeymoon Tent with an outdoor bath.
Activities are ‘water based’ and include mokoros; Become part of the bustling river life by easing between the papyrus clad banks on traditional 'mokoro' canoes. These are propelled from the stern by skilled 'poler' guides, allowing the guests to sit back and absorb the scenery. For full day trips, the camp prepares delicious picnic lunches which can be enjoyed on a Delta island after an exhilarating bush walk. Bush Walks explore the wilderness on foot under the guidance and education of your own personal guide. Feel your senses ignite as you become part of life in the bush and encounter game without the parameters of a vehicle. Island Camping The camp managers will pack your mokoro with basic camping equipment and food so that you can set out with your own personal guide to find an island where you will set up camp. The evening will be spent preparing dinner around the campfire in the company of Africa's nocturnal wildlife. This rustic experience is subject to availability, and must be pre-booked in advance. Motor-Boat Sunset Cruises A great way to explore the crystal clear channels of the Boro River. Motor-boat cruises are organised in time to toast the unprecedented African sunsets while drifting on a lagoon in the middle of the Okavango Delta. Watch as the mutating colours are reflected in the smooth waters, disturbed only by dipping swallows or curious hippos.

Day 3 & 4 - Khwai Community Area/Moremi Game Reserve
The two days in the Khwai Community Area will be spent searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds that this area is renowned for, while absorbing the sounds and beauty of this region. A mokoro excursion will take you along a channel of the Khwai River to view game from another perspective and to experience this tranquil mode of transport. Game drives in the early morning as the sun rises and in the late afternoon as the sun sets will be the norm with half a day dedicated to exploring the Moremi Game Reserve.(Camping will be in private designated campsites.)

Day 5 & 6 - SAVUTI/ZWEI ZWEI, Chobe National Park
DAY 5: MOREMI – SAVUTI: 120KM. 5-6 HRS
Chobe National Park, with its diverse and striking landscapes, will be your next destination. As you continue your search for wildlife, you will traverse the drier region of Savuti where bull elephants dot the plains. Savuti is very well known for its predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and even African wild dog. The Savuti Channel has started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years. The arrival of water is changing the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti. This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephant as well as buffalo to visit the area.(Camping will be in private designated campsites.)

The Chobe River Floodplain is an amazing game viewing area where water attracts large herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra and other herbivores. Due to the proliferation of prey, predators are likely to be close at hand. Sun sets in this region as always spectacular and allows amazing photographic opportunities. While in Northern Chobe, you will participate in a cruise on the Chobe River. This experience allows you to get a closer look at the aquatic animals and birds not easily approached on safari.
