This is a great Botswana safari which combines 5 nights at two lovely traditional safari camps in the Shinde and Kanana Reserves of the Okavango Delta. Spend 2 nights on the waterways of the south-west Okavango at Kanana Camp, followed by 3 nights at Shinde Camp exploring a private area with good populations of leopard, lion, hyena, elephant and seasonal buffalo.
This safari 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.
Starting at Maun, you'll be flown by light aircraft to the south-west of the Okavango Delta. Your base, the lovely Kanana Camp, stands on a large tree-island overlooking dry plains and a pretty lagoon. Explore the forests and dry plains by 4WD and sometimes on foot; and the water channels by mokoro and boat. From around September to December, don't miss a boat trip to the impressive heronry nearby. You will spend 2 nights here.
Transfer to the airstrip for a short flight to Shinde, on a private concession just north of the famous Moremi Game Reserve. You'll be based here for a further 3 nights. In this game-rich reserve day and night game drives, boating and mokoro trips are on offer. Your guide will keep a keen eye out for the numerous predators and large herbivores that frequent this area.
A short light aircraft flight brings you back to Maun, where your safari ends.
