This Walking with Giants safari package provides the complete Okavango Delta experience with a range of activities including game drives, motor boat excursions, interpretive walks and the opportunity for an unique experience of walking with Elephants in the African bush.
Walking with semi-habituated Elephants and learning from them is an experience that not many people have the opportunity to have. This walk allows you to experience the life of an Elephant from its own perspective.
You will learn how the Elephant eats, chooses its food and just goes about its day. Experienced guides accompany you on all the activities but with the Elephant interaction it is the Elephants themselves that are the guides.
Accommodation: Romantic intimate 5 roomed en-suite safari lodge
Activities: Walking with the elephants. Game viewing by 4 x 4, motor boat and mokoros (in season)
Destinations: Okavango Delta
Seasonal: Best time is during the dry season June - October. During the rainy season between 15 January and 15 February we are not able to offer this package to you... the Elephants are on annual leave!
You will be met on arrival in Maun and you will fly in a light aircraft to your safari camp in the Okavango Delta, your home for the next 3 nights. The lodge is intimate with only 5 suites. You will have your own private deck with a star bath and sky bed, perfect for star-gazing under the African sky.
You will arrive in time for lunch and settle in before the afternoon activity which may be a game drive or a mokoro ride to get an introduction to the area.
You may choose to do the elephant interaction this morning or head out early on another game drive. The safari camp is in the seasonal Delta, arguably the most beautiful part of this legendary wilderness and seeing it through the eyes of an elephant is an unforgettable experience. It is not only about walking with these gentle creatures but learning the intimate side of their lives.
For the afternoon activity, you may choose a boat ride, a glide through the channels in a dugout canoe or opt for another game drive. Each moment in the Okavango is special but the late afternoon and early evening seem to release some ancient memories in us and we often celebrate the time with a sundowner in the bush.
