Sand that was carried to the west coast by the Orange River is blown back again inland by winds and formed the dunes of the Namib Desert. The Namib, a minimum of 55 million years old, is regarded as the oldest desert in the world. The sand here is red in colour due to the prominent levels of iron oxide.

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 the bodies contain. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance in the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.

Windhoek is the “getting on” and “getting off” hub for people who have booked shorter “legs” of your combo trip. You might lose some of your travel companions and new people might join. You might also have a change of vehicle and adventure crew (Tour Leader and Driver.) Although it might sound a bit daunting, please be assured that your vehicle will be the same standard and your adventure crew are very experienced in dealing with these changes to make it as smooth as possible. All adventure crew is committed to giving the best possible service but because all have their own style, own special recipes, and own passion with regards to culture, fauna and flora, geology etc. having a change of crew will broaden your experience on the trip immensely.

Once you’ve arrived 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 have a fair idea of the magnitude of this massive mix of land and water with its intricate system of channels and islands.

Day 15: Maun (Okavango Delta)

To ensure the best Delta experience for our clients we have implemented two different styles or means of exploring this unique ecosystem. Due to the changing water levels in the Delta and dry seasons, we will either explore the Delta on a Mokoro(boat) or on a 4x4 open vehicle game drive.

Mokoro: Today you will experience a unique way of travelling into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro. The mokoro is used by local people as a means of transport. 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, manoeuvring 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 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.

The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May

4X4 Open Vehicle Game Drive in Moremi Game Reserve: Departing from Maun early morning, we are destined for the Blackpools and Xini Lagoon areas in Moremi Game Reserve.

Once past the Buffalo Fence and inside the Delta area, 50km from Maun, we start our Delta experience. You can expect a full day of exploration in the search of wild animals, interesting and varied landscapes in this untamed African bush. Lunch will be done en-route and you will have the opportunity to take exquisite photos as Moremi is well known for teeming bird life, elephants, buffalo, hippo, lion and if you are lucky leopard (including various antelope species).

What makes Moremi unique is that it was the first tribal land to be proclaimed by a local African tribe in 1963 as a wildlife sanctuary.

During the dry season, a congregation of all bird and wildlife species, along permanent rivers and water holes makes Moremi Game Reserve one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences!

This experience will only be conducted if the water levels are too low for our travellers to have a proper Mokoro Delta experience. The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May.

Africa4us is deeply committed to protecting the environment and we make sure that our tours reflect this commitment. During the years of conducting tours in the Delta, we have experienced that the human footprint being left behind have a negative effect on this extremely sensitive ecosystem therefore, we do not include an overnight experience in the Delta. We believe that our included Delta experience gives one the same adventure with less impact on the environment.

Day 16: Maun to Elephant Sands

Here you can expect to see animals such as wild dogs, different antelope species and of course elephants that walk through the campsite searching for freshwater. This will probably be the closest you will get to these wild animals on foot. With luck on your side, you may have the wonderful and unique experience of sitting in front of your tented room, watching elephants and other animals come and go to quench their thirst at the

watering hole while you sip on a sundowner yourself.
