ITINERARY:

Day 1-4: Pom Pom Camp, Okavango

Lying in the middle of the largest expanse of sand on earth the Delta is one of Africa’s most amazing, sensitive, and complex environments supporting a spectacle of wilderness and wildlife. Unique as one of the world’s few inland deltas, the placid waters and lush indigenous forests of the Delta offer a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. The elusive Sitatunga antelope has found refuge in this pristine wetland ecosystem, while birds such as the African fish eagle, Pel’s fishing owl and many others are magnificent in their spectacular display. The Okavango Delta offers a number of activities for the visitor where fishing and bird-watching are obvious attractions, but game viewing, especially for rare species, is also possible. One can also take to the waters of this magical world of islands and lagoons by canoe, mokoro or powerboat. Although a holiday here doesn’t come cheap, it is an unforgettable experience.

Day 4-7: Camp Kalahari, Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pan is the world’s largest salt pan, formed on the bed of an ancient lake that began evaporating aeons ago. Visiting Makgadikgadi is a unique desert experience: in the dry season, this vast expanse of sun-baked salt glistens in the light and when the rains come, the pan is home to a cornucopia of flamingos and other waterbirds, as well as one of Africa’s biggest zebra populations, whose annual migration is a wonder to behold.

Description

Today you are to fly from Pom Pom back to Maun where you change aircraft in order to continue to Tsigaro airstrip for Camp Kalahari.
