BOTSWANA MAKORO SAFARI

Trip Location: AFRICA

Botswana

KANANA MAKORO TRAILS

All you can hear is the rustle of reeds and grasses as you pass through the waterways of the Okavango Delta. You are immersed in a world very far from the one we know - no cars, mobile phones or computers. You are connected to nature, waiting to catch sight of some of the myriad game that inhabits the area or simply enjoying the peace and the spectacular scenery.

This is an exclusive and flexible trip allowing a small group of people to get close to the wildlife of the Okavango Delta. The Makoro is a traditional canoe and allows its occupants to glide quietly through areas otherwise inaccessible to people. You will be on the look out for rarely seen animals such as the Sitatunga, a variety of antelope adapted for living in swampy areas, and Pel's Fishing Owl, among others.

During this trip you will spend 3 days exploring the area from your base of a small tented bush camp, set deep within the wonderland of small islands that make up this part of the Okavango Delta. Spend the mornings exploring then rest over the heat of the day before heading out again in the late afternoon. On your return you will be met with iced drinks, a hot shower and tales around the campfire.

    Mobile Tented Camp

    | AFRICA

    A mobile tented camp is light enough to be packed up in a few hours and moved to you next destination.

    What it might lack in decorative touches it more than makes up for by getting you into the outdoors. Mobile camps allow you to move on with ease to find new adventures. They also cut away the distractions of the modern world and cocoon you with nature which makes for a more rounded experience - you don't shut nature out when you go to bed.

    Mobile tented camps vary in size but most have sturdy tents, that you can still stand up in. The beds are comfortable and made up with linen. Each tent will have a private bush bathroom with bucket showers and long or short drop toilets. The camp will be moved by the camp staff while you enjoy the days activities. You will then return to camp for a delicious meal and drinks around the campfire.

    Imagine sitting round the fire on the banks of the Zambezi or under the stars in Laikipia, Kenya before heading off to bed and being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African bush.

    It doesn't get much better than this - doing the sport you love on one of the world's last unspoilt coastlines. Worth every minute of the travel getting there and every penny.

    Kat has always dreamed of seeing the rare Mountain Gorillas. So we'll never forget the hour we spent with these extraordinary 'relatives'. What a wonderful safari you organised.

    Everything we hoped for on our first family safari came true. And more. But it was the guides you recommended who really made it so memorable. We'll return.
