Route & Itinerary

5 Days / 4 Nights

Day 1

Arrive at Maun Airport where you will be met by your Delta Air pilot for the 20 minute light aircraft flight over the Okavango Delta to Oddballs Camp. This flight is an experience in itself, affording superb aerial views of the Delta and its Wildlife, so ensure your cameras are to hand.

On arrival at the Oddballs airstrip, you will be met by the Guide who will be looking after you during your stay at Oddballs. At Oddballs you will be accommodated in a 2m x 2m domed tent set on a raised wooden platform with mattresses and pillows provided, please bring your own sleeping bags (although these can be hired from Oddballs at €5 per day) and towels.

After lunch – (ALL your meals are included in your Tour; Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner as well as all your teas and coffees, but you will be required to pay for additional drinks), you will go out with your Guide for either a mokoro excursion (a dug-out canoe which is ‘poled along by your Guide) or a walking safari. Dinner that evening is taken in the Dining Room overlooking the Boro River, to the accompaniment of the ‘sounds of the Delta’

Day 2

You will collect all your camping equipment and a hamper of food from the store (all included in your tour price) and accompanied by your Guide will go out on Mokoro Trail, your Guide will find a suitable camping spot in the ‘bush’ close to the water, and assist you to set camp, and build a fire. Whilst on Mokoro Trail your food is provided, but you will be responsible for its preparation.

From your base camp your Guide will take you out on Walking Safaris – truly the only way to go out ‘on safari’, enabling you to be ‘at one’ with the environment, and mokoro excursions on the myriad of crystal clear waterways that make up the Okavango Delta obtain stunning views of both the wildlife and birdlife that congregate at the water’s edge. Your Guide will be happy to track and stalk particular animals that you are interested in seeing.

An early morning wake-up, and after some coffee an early morning walk conducted at your pace, in the Moremi Game Reserve, returning after three hours or so for a hearty breakfast. During the heat of the day, you can relax, and then after lunch another excursion by mokoro. Dining by the light of the campfire under the canopy of the ‘African Sky’ completes your day. If you are particularly energetic you can go out on a longer walking safari taking a picnic breakfast or lunch with you.
