~ Itinerary Description ~
1 – 3: Xigera Concession
On arrival at Maun International Airport, you will be met by
an Explorations guide who will assist you in boarding a light aircraft for your
flight over the shimmering water-world of the Okavango Delta to Xigera, where
we will have the opportunity to explore the channels of the world-renowned
Okavango Delta by boat and mokoro. Nestled in a magnificent riverine
forest, Xigera Camp embodies the essence of the Okavango Delta. The camp is
found on the aptly-named ‘Paradise Island’, surrounded by almost year-round
water and lush vegetation. Nine beautifully furnished, en-suite tented rooms
offer views over a seasonal floodplain and small lagoon.
Enjoy meals and drinks in the lounge and dining area
overlooking the flowing channel or under the stars in our traditional African
boma. During long lazy afternoons, take a plunge in the pool or soak up the sun
on a lounger. Surrounded by spectacular wilderness, Xigera Camp will give you a
feeling of wellbeing far from the hubbub of modern living.
in a magnificent riverine forest, Xigera consists of luxuriously furnished
tented rooms with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower. Each room is
raised off the ground on a wooden deck offering a superb view of the seasonal
floodplain and waterhole
Day 4 – 6 : Linyanti Concession
After a morning safari activity at
Xigera, transfer by light aircraft to Linyanti Tented Camp in the Linyanti
Concession in time for an afternoon safari activity.
Set in the 125 000-hectare Linyanti
Concession bordering Chobe National Park, Linyanti Tented Camp is the ideal
base from which to explore this wildlife-rich area. Unrivalled in its
remoteness and the sense of space that it affords, the concession is bordered
by two rivers. The eight tents are
large, airy and designed to recreate the accommodation style of the early
explorers, with canvas surrounds, wooden wardrobes and trunks.
Explore the wildlife-rich area on
morning and afternoon /evening game drives. The river and associated
floodplains are a hive of activity as large numbers of general game such as
impala, zebra and kudu head to the life-giving water. The presence of these
animals attracts the associated predators, in particular leopard and wild dog.
The Linyanti Concession also has a reputation for its large concentrations of
elephant iconic watercourses – the Linyanti River to the north and the Savute
Channel to the south.
Day 7: Maun / Departure Transfer
by light aircraft from Linyanti to Maun Airport for your onward arrangements.
