Ker & Downey Botswana Safari
Okavango Delta, Moremi Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Central Kalahari Western Area, Game Drives, Camping Experience.
During this safari we will stay in 2 very different parts of Botswana – namely, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta. One will immediately see the difference between water wonder world of the lush Okavango Delta (known for its perfectly located wildlife sanctuary and wonderful scenery) and the arid desert areas of the Kalahari with its special desert adapted plants and wildlife. Both these areas are awe inspiring, but for totally different reasons. We will spend most of our time camping in large safari tents with en-suite facilities. Our days will consist mainly of game viewing during the early mornings and late afternoons. During the heat of the day, we will have time for rest and relaxation back at camp. During this safari, guests will also enjoy an authentic Bushmen experience, as the private area where we will be staying is in close proximity to a local Bushmen village. Known as the original people of Africa, many aspects of the Bushmen culture, such as sharing an intimate knowledge of the bush and relating their history through dance and storytelling, are shared with guests who embark on this tour.
From Maun Airport where the safari starts, you will be met by your safari guide and welcomed into Botswana. Maun is a small town on the southern side of the Okavango Delta, utilized by many Tour Companies and Safari Operators as the starting point for various kinds of adventures. This afternoon you have the option of taking a scenic flight in a light aircraft over the Okavango delta (duration of the flight is approx. 1hour). In order to understand the geological aspect of the Delta as well as to see various species of game, this optional activity is highly recommended. Dinner will be at a Local Restaurant.
