Daily itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek

Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your tour leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Windhoek is a tiny capital town but with loads of interesting things to offer. One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall.

Here, you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined, there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance in the town center.

One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.

  • Accommodation: Hotel
  • Address: Hotel Safari, Corner of Auas and Aviation Streets, Windhoek, Namibia
  • Activities included: Airport transfer, welcome meeting at 18:00
  • Activities optional: Explore the city, museums, and craft market

Depart Windhoek early for a long drive through the eastern part of Namibia, crossing the border into Botswana and travelling into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Ghanzi is the area where San (Bushmen) live who still have the knowledge of an ancient lifestyle and who are eager to welcome visitors into their almost forgotten world. In the evening, you can enjoy an optional ancient dance ritual performed around a campfire by the San and if the night is clear, enjoy the sparkling, starry skies for which Ghanzi is famous.

  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • Travel time: 9 hours’ drive
  • Accommodation: Camping
  • Activities optional: San (bushmen) dance in the afternoon

Day 3: Ghanzi to Maun

You will enjoy an optional morning walk with the San (bushmen) as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation to generation before departing Ghanzi. You will arrive in Maun, Botswana's fifth largest town, after lunchtime.

Once you arrive in Maun, you will have the option to get a spectacular birds-eye view of the Okavango Delta from above in a small fixed wing aircraft (weather permitting). Looking down on the Delta from the aircraft, you will get a fair idea of the magnitude of this massive mix of land and water with its intricate system of channels and islands.

You might also see families of elephant, giraffe, and herds of buffalo or even hippos from the air. If you skip the flight, you will have the chance to kick back and relax at the campsite.

Day 4: Maun

On this day you will experience a new way of travelling into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro, the same way as the local people do. You will be transferred to the “polling” station either with a motorized boat or a 4x4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.

A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people. The mokoro is steered by a “poler” standing at the back, maneuvering the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.

Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water, you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends on the time of year and water levels of the Delta.

You will stop for lunch at an island and enjoy a nature walk of a few hours. Then you will head back to Maun, again in your mokoro, enjoying the last hour or two on the water while the late afternoon sun starts heading for the horizon.
