The highlight of your Botswana elephant safari will be interacting with the Elephants, learning about their behaviour and having a wonderful game viewing experience where you will be surrounded by antelope such as Wildebeest and Lechwe. Game drives will allow you to explore the picturesque islands further afield.
In the dry season when the Delta floods, you will be able to enjoy game viewing from mokoros, you may even see the rare water adapted sitatunga during a mokoro trip, as they live in the thick papyrus beds along the permanent water channels.
You will be met on arrival in Maun, gateway to the Okavango delta, transferred by a light aircraft to your bush camp. The flight takes about 30 minutes, and it is a great way to take in the beautiful landscape of the exotic Delta below with its many different channels, and islands.
After a light lunch, you will have time to relax and settle into camp before a lovely high tea after which you will be taken to meet the Elephants. You will go on a short game viewing expedition in a game viewing vehicle. Highly experienced guides who will help you spot animals such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lion, leopard and many more.
You will return to your luxury safari camp in time for refreshing sundowners around the campfire, followed by a delicious dinner, which is often served, on the main deck. Go to sleep surrounded by the sounds of the African night.
Today is all about African elephants! You will get to interact and become one with the Abu Elephant Herd. As you spend time with all the elephants, you will discover their unique personalities. Spend time with their handlers learning about their habits and conservation efforts and then watch them take a mud bath.
Have your camera on hand to capture these special memories. Walking with elephants allows you to experience their habitat and discover the beauty of the bushveld.
When the annual flood arrives, you might set off to explore the serene Delta channels in a traditional Mokoro (canoe). This allows you to explore the wetter areas of the concession and see the beautiful palm Islands.
In the evening sundowners may be served on the main deck, or perhaps you will drive out to where a beautifully laid table awaits, and the chef has conjured up a magnificent bush dinner. After dinner under the stars, you can also go on a night drive with a spotlight to spot the nocturnal Delta inhabitants.
