Traverse the Plains
After arriving in the rural frontier town of Maun we’ll put you straight into your own private plane and fly you east to the Makgadikgadi Pans, where you’ll check into the often star-studded, luxurious 1920’s style Jack’s Camp. You’ll take in the sights of the vast, salty remains of an ancient super-lake from the air the entire way.
On arrival you’ll sip tea and settle down for a dreamy night’s sleep, getting yourself ready to take in a land irresistible to the great explorers of the past and a true oasis for the travelling adventurer. You’ll be camping, but in the most magnificent comfort imaginable.
Meet Your Tracker
Wake up to breakfast with a view and meet your Bushmen trackers. They’ll teach you all the tricks of the trade needed to survive in this harshest of environments before introducing you to some inquisitive inhabitants of the bustling plain. From cuddling up to friendly meerkats to tracking hyena or wildebeest over the scorched, white earth, your eyes will constantly be wide in astonishment.
Quad Bike to Kubu Island
For the thrill seekers amongst you, this is your moment to feel alive. We’ll take you to Kubu Island, home of ancient, bloated baobab trees and the largest flamingo colony on earth at break neck speeds on quad bikes across the surface of the moon – at least, that’s how it will feel. Enjoy a candlelit dinner to refuel before bedding down under the clearest, starry sky you’ll ever see. The next morning, you’ll ditch the quad and over to a private chopper this time to whisk you to the waterways of the delta, in stark contrast to the salt plains.
After flying the mesmerising Delta your resting spot will be in the beautiful Khwai Concession at the Belmond Khwai River Lodge. Tucked by a forest of leadwood and figs trees right on the River Khwai floodplains, you’ll have front row seats to witness the wildlife that flocks to the water in droves. It’s a photographer’s dream.
Whilst here we will arrange trips into the local communities for you to immerse yourself in the local culture, meet the local people and place yourself at the very heart of the Green Safari model of conservation, meeting the beneficiaries and indigenous members of the board.
All that’s left is to enjoy the remainder of your time in nature’s paradise before a 50 minute boat will whizz you to the airstrip for your private charter back to Maun.
