This 4-day tour is designed as a luxurious extension to our Namibia: Skeleton Coast Expedition but also makes a great escape on its own. Venture into the African bush at the Okavango River Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its diverse array of fauna including lions, hyenas, zebras, hippos, giraffes, and more! Our luxury safari camp is all-inclusive and provides an opportunity to choose your own adventure on exhilarating game drives, double-decker boat cruises, mokoro canoe safaris, sport fishing trips, or guided nature walks, all with the comfort of a 5-star safari camp. Disconnect, unwind, and marvel at the sights and sounds of a pristine oasis where each dawn brings the promise of thrilling encounters with majestic wildlife.

Dumela rra (Hello) and welcome to Botswana! For those arriving from Namibia we’ll be flying from Windhoek to Maun with a layover in Johannesburg. Upon arrival at Maun International Airport, we’ll board a 30-minute charter flight to Kwara Camp, a luxury safari camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The afternoon is ours to relax by the pool or depending on flight schedules there may be time for a later afternoon safari drive, followed by a Welcome Dinner.
Please note: The flight into Maun International Airport is not included in the cost of the tour. More details will be provided with the official trip confirmation email about 11 months prior to departure.
After an early morning wake-up call, we’ll gather around the fireplace for a freshly prepared breakfast. At sunrise, it’s time to mount up for a game drive. An early morning departure increases the chance for unusual sightings as the majority of fauna are active at the beginning and end of the day when temperatures are lower. During the drive, we’re likely to see lions, hyenas, wildebeest, kudu, giraffes, zebras, gazelles, and many more amazing creatures. Around noon, we’ll return to the camp for lunch and some leisure time. In the afternoon we can take a double-decker boat cruise through the Delta, which provides a better vantage point to watch elephants bathe or hear the snort of a territorial hippo. Our afternoon wouldn’t be complete without a scenic sunset stop for a classic safari tradition – sundowners! While we savour our cocktails, we’ll marvel at the natural beauty of the Okavango River Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stands as a testament to the delicate balance between the annual floodwaters and the thriving ecosystems they nourish. Tonight, we’ll dine together at the camp. Feeling extra adventurous? We can go for a night game drive and have the chance to see rare, nocturnal animals on the prowl.
Morning comes early once again, and after a freshly prepared breakfast, we’ll indulge in a mokoro safari and glide through the unique waterways and floodplains in a traditional African canoe. The complete stillness of an early morning in the Delta is a truly sublime experience. We’ll enjoy another game drive and if there’s interest we can do a short guided nature walk to discover a world of smaller flora, insects, and tracks easily missed while in a vehicle. For fishing enthusiasts, the camp will provide all the necessary fishing gear. The Okavango and Kwando Rivers are both renowned as excellent destinations for fly fishing and traditional spin fishing. Tonight, we’ll reconvene to share stories from the day over a Farewell Dinner.
Rise and shine! Depending on flight times we’ll have the option for an early game drive. Afterwards, we’ll board our 30-minute charter flight back to Maun International Airport. Safe travels home!
Please note: Do not book your international flights out of Maun until speaking with an Out Adventures representative. Our departure time will depend on the charter flights available from the camp. More details will be provided with the official trip confirmation email about 11 months prior to departure.
