Itinerary

Day 1

At 06:30, after a full breakfast, you will be picked up from your lodge by your wonderful professional guide. Packed lunch and beverages are carried with you on your 3-­hour drive to Okavango’s Sepopa Boat Station, the main boat connection into your destination, the Seronga’s Mbiroba Camp Site.

Have your camera ready to capture views of the famous Tsodilo Hills and clusters of traditional villages, all from the comfort of your safari vehicle. The focus for this safari is the beautiful aquatic and bird life of the region. Also, expect to see grunting hippos, crocodiles, and perhaps an elephant coming down to drink.

In the afternoon, you will do a sunset mokoro canoe expedition to one of the area’s most beautiful islands before heading back to the camp to get refreshed and enjoy dinner. An optional night game drive after dinner is offered at no extra cost.

Day 2

Rise and shine for an early breakfast, after which, you're off on a guided bushwalk in search of the birds that call these islands home, especially the African skimmers that lay their eggs on the water. Around 11:30, you turn back to the campsite for a lovely brunch. Please note that you bring light snacks and tea along for every activity.

After a siesta, it’s time for tea around 15:30 before you go to explore islands from the comfort of your safari vehicle. Around 17:00, you start watching the sun fade in the spillways while sipping a glass of cold wine or beer (or apple juice). Get back to the camp and dinner under the stars is waiting for you.

Day 3

Have an early breakfast, then you’re off on foot into the true African bush, led by local river people, Hambukushu hunters. Around 10:30, you turn your feet back to the camp for brunch before packing up your campsite. From there, you head into a village for a unique cultural opportunity to interact directly with locals. Each of you can participate in the huge variety of traditional cultural activities that take place in the village.

The activities include setting to know local domestic lifestyles, rain­‐making ceremonies, healing ceremonies and techniques, and blacksmithing. There is also dinner at the Boma which is traditionally prepared and accompanied with folktales, traditional stories, singing, and wonderful dancing, completed with an overnight in the cultural camp.

Day 4

After breakfast, you depart for your modern village visit, gradually heading towards the Seronga Boat Station to connect back to Maun.

Note: this is just a sample itinerary. This trip is fully customized and Unlimited Safari is eager to change days and activities to make your dream trip happen!
