Botswana Explorer Details


Day 1: Kalahari Plains Camp

On arrival in Maun, Botswana transfer via light aircraft to Kalahari Plains Camp for three nights. This flight will give you a bird’s-eye view of the enormous 52,800km2 Central Kalahari Game Reserve, larger than Switzerland and one of the biggest game reserves in the world.

Upon arrival at Kalahari Plains Camp, there will be a welcome drink and camp orientation. Your guide will advise and discuss with you the activities available to ensure you enjoy and experience everything the area has to offer. After orientation, depart on your afternoon activity.

Kalahari Plains Camp is situated overlooking a pan with endless horizons and beautiful skies, in the remote northern part of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

This 100% solar-powered camp uses innovative insulated canvas walls and roofs to keep temperatures naturally comfortable. One can see seasonal herds of herbivores, springbok, gemsbok, steenbok and red hartebeest as well as a variety of predators including lion, cheetah, bat-eared fox, brown hyaena, jackal, and caracal. There are also some 220 bird species to be seen.

Activities include game drives, trips to the renowned Deception Valley with a picnic brunch, and interpretive walk with staff members who are from the local San Bushman clan.

Days 2 and 3: Full Day at Kalahari Plains

After a light breakfast in the main area, depart for your morning activity returning in time for lunch. You will have a few hours of time to yourself to relax or explore the camp before having afternoon tea and heading off on your afternoon activity. Dinner is served in the main area.

Day 4: Banoka Bush Camp

You will be transferred via light aircraft from Kalahari Plains Camp to Banoka Bush Camp in the Okavango Delta. Flying clearly portrays Botswana’s scenic contrasts: Delta and desert; water and sand; verdant, thick bush and expansive wide-open spaces.

Upon arrival at Banoka Bush Camp, there will be a welcome drink and camp orientation. Afterwards, depart on your afternoon activity. Banoka Bush Camp is situated in the Khwai Development Trust Community Concession, on the banks of the Khwai River in the north-eastern corner of the Okavango Delta adjoining the Moremi Game Reserve. This is one of the most diverse areas in northern Botswana.

Wildlife to be seen includes elephant, hippo, roan, lion, leopard, wild dog and spotted hyaena, to name a few, as well as spectacular birding, with some 450 species recorded. Explore a wide range of exciting habitats – a blend of forests, floodplain, wetland and grasslands – via guided game drives, or travel secretive channels by traditional mokoro.

Activities include game drives, guided walks in the bush and a mokoro experience. Afternoon drives are followed by a night drive ending back in camp at around 19:30.

Days 5 and 6: Full Day at Banoka

After a light breakfast in the main area, depart for your morning activity returning in time for lunch. You will have a few hours of time to yourself to relax or explore the camp before having afternoon tea and heading off on your afternoon activity. Dinner is served in the main area.
