Activities at Okavango Explorers
Canoeing the Selinda Spillway is one of the most unique experiences in southern Africa. An ideal morning or afternoon trip would be to paddle down the spillway and to then walk back to camp, or be met by a vehicle for a safari drive on your return. Canoeing is seasonal and dependent on water levels in the Selinda Spillway.
Fly-fishing and rod/reel kit is available for those who want to try their cast at the local fish (except January and February when there is a moratorium on fishing).
One of the core activities at Okavango Explorers Camp is to enjoy a guided walk. It’s also a huge benefit of staying within the conservancies. Walks allow you to appreciate the stunning landscape around us on foot, peacefully, without the noise of engines. Talk to the managers to arrange a good time and location for a walk. Usually early morning or evening is the best time, as the middle of the day is too hot to venture out of the shade. Wear good walking shoes, a hat, and neutral coloured clothing so as not to alarm the wildlife, and take binoculars. Your guide will have water for you.
The focus of your stay is centred around exploration and adventure. As such, a large portion of the wildlife viewing activities involve drives in our specially adapted vehicles, walking with some canoeing on the Selinda Spillway as it enters the Selinda Reserve from the west being fed from the upper fringes of the Okavango Delta.
Our custom-built, open Toyota Land Cruisers are specially designed for our conditions and photography, including fold-down windscreens, raised roofs, photographic bars, and multi-plug inverters. Each Land Cruiser is fully stocked with reference books, drinks, and snacks.
Young Explorers Program
A full syllabus of bush craft skills for our young explorers. This is a complimentary program that follows in the footsteps of National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, Dereck and Beverly Joubert. An extensive pack will be provided to eager children on arrival, so they can learn about animal calls, how to track wildlife, and other facts and figures about the wild. At the end of a child’s stay, he/she will become a Young Explorer and Conservation Ambassador - ready to go out and tell the world about what they have learned and what they too can do to help protect this beautiful environment.
