Pearl-spotted Owl Safari

Pearl-spotted Owl Safari: In full

This 4 night adventure takes place on the Selinda Spillway along the Selinda Canoe Trail and is a gentle canoe safari along one of the most picturesque waterways in Botswana. Relax as you glide slowly past hippo, elephant and crocodile all accompanied by an expert guide.

A canoe trail really allows participants to get closer to and appreciate the unique insect, amphibian, reptile and bird life of the Okavango Delta. This trip would be an excellent add-on to a walking safari as well as very complimentary indeed to a safari focusing on the dryer areas of the Okavango.

You'll be staying at very comfortable mobile camps, which are broken down every morning and paddled on ahead, all to be set-up by the time you arrive at camp after a days' canoeing.

This safari 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.


Days 1-4

4 nights at Selinda Canoe Trail (full board & activities) | Kwando-Linyanti area, Botswana

The canoe trail in Selinda Reserve offers a gentle trip through this wild area ...From Maun, you'll fly to Selinda and then drive to the start point of your canoe trail. After introductions to your guide and the rest of your group (the trail takes a maximum of eight guests) you'll get underway for a late morning / early afternoon start. The pace is gentle and relaxed and the emphasis is on taking in your surroundings rather than anything too high-tempo.

During the 4 nights you'll spend on the Selinda Canoe Trail you'll camp on the banks of the spillway. This is very comfortable for a mobile camp, and consists of spacious, bow-tents. Activities centre on canoeing but there is no set timetable for each day and you'll pull up on shore whenever the guide feels there is scope for an impromptu walk.

Day 5

On your final morning you will take a light aircraft flight transfer back to Maun where you'll connect with your own onward travel arrangements.
