Detailed Description of this trip:
7 days/6 nights Incorporating the Okavango Delta from Seronga to Ntswi Island by power boat and dug-out canoe “The more you explore wilderness, the more you explore your own self”. The Okavango Delta remains one of the most alluring, mysterious and personally elevating wilderness regions in Africa. The Heart of the Okavango safari offers the best possible Delta encounter possible within 7 days. From the panhandle in the north to the seasonal floodplains in the south, we spend 6 magical nights camping on remote islands and tracking game on foot.

Day 1 - Maun
Maun- Seronga By Air - Seronga – Jedibe Island By Powerboat - Start Mekoro Excursion.
Includes an hour long air charter flight from Maun to Seronga.
From here we take a power boat transfer along the meandering channels of the pan-handle, enroute to Jedibe island in the northern delta. At Jedibe we will meet up with our poling team and commence the mekoro (dug-out canoe) excursion.
We stop on a suitable island to erect our first camp site, and spend the night.
Day 2-6 - Botswana
Mekoro Excursion and Wilderness Camping.
For the following five nights, we are self contained exploring the hidden away places of the magical system. Walks on islands and picnic stops are part of the fare as we plot a course southward through the myriad of waterways, floodplains and channels. As we do not have a predetermined route, our movements are determined by the water levels and game concentrations along the way. Our camp sites and walks depend on the best possible game encounters at the time.
Day 7 - Maun
Arrive at Ntswi Island-Charter Flight Back to Maun.
Our convoy arrives at an air strip on Ntswi island in the southern region to link up with an air charter flight to Maun, arriving in the late afternoon.
