Program

Day 1: Maun - Xaxaba Island

  • Arrive at Maun Airport
  • Boat trip to Xaxaba Campsite in Okavango Delta

Welcome to Botswana! Arrive at Maun Airport (MUB) and meet your Afrika Ecco representative who will be waiting to take you for a quick refreshment and introduction to your safari holiday. If you need to buy any personal items before heading into the Okavango Delta, your Afrika Ecco rep will take you to the mall. A short drive takes you to the boat station on the Thamalakane River, which runs through Maun and into the Okavango Delta waters.

Here, you will meet your guide, camp assistant, and chef who will join you on the three to four hours boat cruise through the delta to your first campsite on Xaxaba Island. Arrive at Xaxaba in the early evening to a prepared campsite complete with safari tents, wash basins, en-suite canvas bathrooms, and bucket showers. Meet your local pollers and enjoy the wild environment before a shower, a three-course dinner, and your first night in the delta.

Day 2: Chief's Island

  • Morning walking safari
  • Afternoon mokoro cruise

Wake up early with the birds, followed by breakfast with tea and coffee before your local guides take you on a long walk on Chief’s Island. Climb into a mokoro and enjoy the short journey across the waters from the campsite to Chief’s Island. From here, you take to the famous island on foot for a three to four hours guided walking safari.

Return to the camp via mokoro, enjoy a freshly prepared bucket shower and a delicious brunch / lunch at about 12:00 p.m. Spend the afternoon at the camp for a siesta, reading, or bird watching. High tea is served at 15:00 p.m., after which you can look forward to an afternoon mokoro cruise through the intricate waterways of the delta. Return to the camp at sunset for a scenic sundowner and time spent chatting around the fire until dinner is served. Head to bed when you’re ready.

Day 3: Chief's Island - Xaxaba village

  • Morning walking safari
  • Afternoon Xaxaba village tour

Wake up early, have breakfast, tea, and coffee, followed by your second walk on Moremi Game Reserve’s Chief’s Island. You will travel to the island in a mokoro once again, and enjoy a three to four hours walking safari. Return to the camp and indulge in a warm shower and tasty lunch before relaxing for the afternoon.

High tea is served, followed by a mokoro cruise to the village of Xaxaba where you can enjoy a locally guided tour and the opportunity to purchase curios. Arrive back at the camp for dinner and fireside chatter before turning in for your last night under the delta stars.

Arrive at Moremi’s Maqwee Gate (South Gate) and continue into the reserve to your private BOGA (Botswana Guides Association) campsite at Xinii. These sites are reserved for local guides only, ensuring a private and authentic camping experience.

Day 6: Moremi Game Reserve

  • Full day safari in Moremi Game Reserve

Enjoy an early morning wake up and breakfast, followed by some sun screen application and preparing for a full day out in the Moremi.
