DAY 1: OKAVANGO DELTA (B,L & D)

Arrive in Maun International Airport, where you will be met by Marvelous Mobile Safari representative. Look out for a sign board that reads MARVELOUS MOBILE SAFARI. The tour starts in Maun, and to the Okavango Delta. This safari is simple yet comfortable and all your needs will be catered for. So, don't hesitate to join this safari and be amazed by what Marvelous Mobile Safari has to offer. Discover and explore the other side of nature on this amazing safari trip.

We will transfer you to the mokoro station by 4WD open sided safari vehicle (about an hour) where you will meet your guide and poler. You will glide along myriad water channels, in a mokoro (dug out canoe) looking for wildlife and bird species which inhabit the Delta. There are no facilities out there as you camp on an island chosen by your guide. On arrival your guide will take you for a game walk where you can enjoy awesome sightings and the sound of birdsong; followed by lunch. After lunch you may enjoy a siesta moment in camp to avoid the mid-day heat. Your accommodation will be a 2.4m x 2.4m dome tent with a comfortable bedroll with linen. Wait for the sunset for the amazing changes in hue that give visitors so much pleasure. At dusk your guide will light you a fire where all your meals will be prepared by a chef. Please bring a hat and sunscreen as there is no shade. Bedtime is determined by last guest.

DAY 2: OKAVANGO DELTA (B,L & D)

An early morning game walk will be available for interested persons, returning to the camp when ready to enjoy breakfast. After breakfast, the mekoros can be taken again to enjoy the channels, the intricate veins of waterways which interconnect the lagoons, or take a guided bush walk before having lunch or snacks. In the afternoon, the guides will take you in the mekoros to a safe location where swimming is possible in the waters of the Okavango Delta, followed by a chance to learn how to pole a mokoro using the gnashi. Time can be taken to relax and have a drink. After the bush walk, you can relax and unwind in the camp, refresh and take dinner under the milky way starlit skies after which the guides and polers will narrate cultural stories and entertain you with traditional dances which display animal tracking techniques and gathering methods for traditional medicinal purposes. Guests interested in astronomy will be treated to one of the most expansive displays of stars on earth, before retiring in cozy tents for the night and drifting off to the sounds of the wild. Bedtime is determined by last guest.
