Okavango and Scenic Helicopter Safari Package
2 Nights Okavango Meru Tent Camping Special
With Elephant Havens Tour and Scenic Helicopter
Your guide will pick up from the airport (or anywhere in Maun) in the early afternoon. At 3pm we set off towards the Okavango Delta, stopping off en-route at "Elephant Havens", a wildlife foundation that runs an Elephant orphanage and reintroduction program.
After a 1 hour tour at the orphanage we continue on our way arriving at your riverside Okavango base camp. Your guide will show you around and take you to your tented accommodation, riverside meru tents with beds and each with its own bathroom. We have a mini-bar available in the main area from which you may help yourselves to beverages and enjoy the sunset over the hippo lagoon. Shortly after sunset a 3 course fire cooked dinner will served in the dining area.
At daybreak we will deliver hot water, coffee and tea to the veranda in front of your tent and give you a wakeup call to get ready for an early breakfast. We depart on the safari vehicle around sunrise for a half hour drive to the "Buffalo" fence and then a further 1-hour game viewing drive to Ditshipi where we find a mokoro starting point well within the delta. At the mokoro "station" we meet the team of "polers" who take you and your guide for a 6-hour combination of being on the water and going on a game walk. When arriving back from your walk your guide will set out a sumptuous picnic lunch before heading back on the mekoro to your waiting safari vehicle. Water levels permitting we will try to use a different route for your game drive back to camp for a shower, sun downers and dinner.
We start your third day at a more leisurely pace with your warm beverage being delivered to your tent at sunrise with breakfast served any time before 8am.Your guide will then walk you to the pick-up point (between 8am and 9am depending on the time of year) for your helicopter flight back to Maun. The helicopter flight to Maun includes a further 20 minute scenic flight over the Okavango to give you another amazing perspective of the watery paradise that you experienced the previous day
