Itinerary

Day 1 - 3SELINDA RESERVE | OVERNIGHT AT ZARAFA CAMP

The Selinda Reserve is a 320,000 acre private concession located at the crossroads of some of Northern Botswana’s most prolific wildlife areas, upstream from the mysterious Savute Channel and the lushful Chobe National Park; and North of the expanding reaches of the greater Okavango Delta. A truly spectacular scenery with a varied landscape that boasts of staggering wildlife populations in their diverse habitats year-round. The reserve is home to some of the most native species such as the Leopard, Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Red Lechwe, Zebra and Giraffe. It also exists as a refuge for some of the most rare species such as the African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Roan and the Sable Antelopes. Birdlovers are not left behind and will not be disappointed either.

ZARAFA CAMP: 2 nights
Zarafa, the “greenest” luxurious safari camp on the continent, contains an intimate four room exquisite tented camp, located on the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve in Northern Botswana. These are the Dhow Suites which consist of two tents and a private main area that operates entirely independently from the main camp. Overlooking the crystal waters of the Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the famous Savute Channel, is a magnificent breathtaking view showcasing the depths of this camp area. The lagoon is also a water source for a tremendous population of wildlife – a myriad of dry seasons boast sightings of Buffaloes and Elephants.

Decking around the tent leads towards the private plunge pool and outdoor shower, all with ravishing views of the pristine Botswana wilderness. Under an impressive canopy of the African ebony trees, the camp has a sizable main lounge, with an adjacent library and a dining area. Zarafa has succeeded in successfully retaining an explicit African feel while balancing the delicate relationship between personal and informal, romance and adventurous. Constructed by the use of only recycled hardwoods and canvas, the camp’s electricity is sourced from its solar farm; while a ‘bio-gas’ system recycles all its vegetable waste into usable cooking gas.

With the maximum of just eight guests, Zarafa Camp offers complete flexibility. While the drives are centred on the most comfortable and productive times of the day, early mornings and late afternoons; full day drives, walks and boating (water level dependent) are great ways to occupy your day at Zarafa.

Day 3-5 THE OKAVANGO DELTA | OVERNIGHT AT DUBA PLAINS CAMP

THE OKAVANGO DELTA: The placid waters and lush indigenous forests offer a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. Considered to be the Okavango’s Maasai Mara and the Serengeti because of the sheer volume of wildlife species, the renowned Duba Plains Camp sits in the heart of the classic Okavango Delta habitat. A matrix of palm dotted islands, flood plains and woodlands, and the 77,000-hectare private concession typifies the region’s unique landscape.

Duba Plains prides itself on its extraordinary wildlife experiences that include reliable sightings of the Lions, Buffaloes, Red Lechwes, Blue Wildebeests, Greater Kudus and Tsessebes. Elephants and Hippos can also be spotted trudging through the swamps as well as Leopards and other Nocturnal Species. Birds abounding the area is a birdwatcher’s paradise and more. Okavango ‘specials’ include the rare Wattled Crane, Pel’s Fishing Owl, White- Backed Night Heron and the Marsh Owl. Through Inquisitive Africa our guests are offered an ultimate opportunity for private wildlife sightings.

DUBA PLAINS CAMP: 2 nights at Duba Plains Camp in a luxurious tent on a full board basis
The Duba Plains Camp is a wildlife connoisseur’s gateway to the Okavango Delta. Built on a wooded island connected to the prolific wildlife area by an elaborate set of bridges, the camp is the base for numerous famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. The intimate camp consists of five traditional-style tents and the 2-bedroom Duba Plains Suite that both sit on raised decks, with striking views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of the wildlife parading past.

Each tent contains a lounge area, a private verandah, beautifully appointed en-suite facilities consisting of a flushing loo, double basins along with indoor and outdoor showers and luxurious baths. Guests will be able to enjoy their own private plunge pool and outdoor undercover sala/day rest area. The main area consists of a large raised dining room and a comfortable lounge with private dining areas, a wine cellar, library, and a chef’s kitchen with ample space for guests to either find privacy or come together.
The camp’s center-point is the gathering place of all bush related experiences, at the fireplace, on an extended deck into the swamp. Duba Plain’s Toyota Land Cruisers are aptly named ‘Swamp Vehicles’ due to their extra-high suspension and absolutely huge tires, uniquely designed to traverse the floodplains. Duba Plains offers Botswana’s best land safari as well as an Okavango Delta experience from wildlife viewing, birding or fishing from the boat, to walking and exciting drives with knowledgeable guides and friendly hosts.
