Slaty Egret Safari

Slaty Egret Safari: In full

This Botswana safari to the Okavango Delta stays in two great small safari camps in very different areas – 2 nights at Chitabe and 2 nights at Little Vumbura. The bird-watching and big game viewing are excellent, and you'll be staying at first-class camps which are small and intimate.

This safari works very well on it's own or it can be combined with any of our other Botswana fly-in safaris to make a longer trip. It can also easily be combined with a visit to Livingstone in Zambia or Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to see the Victoria Falls. See our trips to Livingstone or trips to Victoria Falls for examples of the add-on options, as well as the costs.

This is an individual trip, and can be tailor-made and adapted to suit you.

Include:

Days 1-2

2 nights at Chitabe Camp (full board & activities) | Okavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

Chitabe Camp is built on elevated wooden decks set amongst trees.In Maun, board the light aircraft for your short flight to Chitabe – your base for 2 nights on the south-western edge of the Okavango Delta. You usually reach camp in time for afternoon tea and your first safari activity. Chitabe is one of the Delta's “dry camps", where the focus is on day and night game drives, and also walking (at the guides' discretion).

Days 3-4

2 nights at Little Vumbura (full board & activities) | Okavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

Little Vumbura is a small safari camp on its own private island in the Okavango DeltaAfter a short drive to the airstrip, and a flight over the Okavango Delta, you land at Little Vumbura's airstrip. It's usually a 40-minute drive and boat trip to camp - through mopane forest, past papyrus stands and over flood plains – although you might take longer as you stop for game. Little Vumbura sits beside a stretch of permanent water and offers a great variety of activities. Get out on the water by mokoro and boat or explore the vast expanse of dryer terrain north east of camp by vehicle. For 2 nights, your comfortable base is Little Vumbura.

Day 5

You'll probably have time for a morning activity before a short light aircraft flight from Vumbura to Maun where your safari ends.
