Botswana Webinar on YoutubeIn 1982, Mountain Travel Sobek was one of the first American outfitters to operate safaris in Botswana. Ever since, we’ve carefully honed our itineraries to work only with the country’s finest concessions, streamlining transportation time and covering more ground through the use of private charter flights. On our Botswana Flying Safari, you’ll take in the country’s most incredible parks and game reserves by mokoro and 4-wheel-drive vehicle: the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta, and the Moremi and Linyanti Game Reserves. And after days tracking classic game, you’ll bask in the comforts of our exclusive, luxury tented camps—complete with your own attached bathroom and private verandas. No one does safaris like MTS!

If you'd like to stay longer, we offer an amazing extension trip to Victoria Falls—one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! Optional activities at Victoria Falls include strolling through lush, tropical vegetation, rafting on the Zambezi River, elephant-back safaris, microflights over the falls, bungee jumping, and more. Please call for extension information.

Day 1: Arrive in Maun – Central Kalahari

Welcome to Maun, where your Botswana safari adventure begins! Arrive at the airport by midday (flights to Maun from Johannesburg are available on Air Botswana and South African Airways). After claiming your luggage and clearing customs, a Mountain Travel Sobek representative will meet you outside the customs area of the airport and transfer you to your connecting small-plane flight to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Upon arrival at the reserve we’ll enjoy a game drive en route to our deluxe tented camp. As you experience the reserve's flat expanse of scrub-covered dunes and ancient river valleys, look out for incredible desert adapted-wildlife—including black-maned lions, brown hyenas, wildebeest, red hartebeest, springbok and honey badgers.

At camp, enjoy private tents complete with attached bathrooms, hot showers, flush toilets, and private decks overlooking the Kalahari Plains await. Each tent also has a roof platform for those wishing to sleep out under the stars.

  • Dinner
  • Accommodation:Kalahari Plains Camp

Day 2: Central Kalahari Game Reserve

After breakfast your guide and group will discuss a choice of activities, including either a full-day safari to Deception Valley, or a morning and afternoon activity out of Kalahari Plains Camp.

Deception Valley is one of the best places to observe the wildlife of the fragile Kalahari environment. In fact, it was here that American zoologists and researchers Mark and Delia Owens famously studied lions and brown hyenas back in the 1970s. Deception Valley is one of several fossil riverbeds that are crucial features of the Kalahari ecosystem. In times past, huge rivers flowed through the Kalahari—now only the ancient beds of those streams remain. Though the rivers no longer flow, rainwater collects in pans on the river bed. This precious water nourishes sweet short grasses that attract concentrations of herbivores during the desert’s sparse rainy season. In the harsh Kalahari, game collects into large groups only during the rains, when an abundance of pasturage is available. In the dry months, the animals disperse to wander widely in search of forage. Wildlife we may spot today includes herds of golden springbok, antelope, gemsbok (the giant oryx of southern Africa), red hartebeest, eland, greater kudu, and a number of smaller antelopes. This area of the Kalahari is also noted for its fantastic predatory game viewing, which includes cheetahs and wild dogs.

The twice-daily game drives or full-day excursions take place in open 4x4 vehicles and directed towards the seasonal movements of the wildlife. As we are in a National Park, we adhere to the regulations of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks restricting off-road driving and night driving. We'll also have the option of an interpretive, guided "Bushman Walk" led by camp staff members who hail from the San Bushman clans of the area provides insights into their traditional lifestyles through dress, activities and a short half-mile walk in the immediate camp area.

Please note that Kalahari animals are shyer than those in many of Africa’s more visited game parks, and we must take care not to disturb them. The Kalahari is a harsh environment, in which the expenditure of undue energy can be the margin for an individual animal’s survival.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Kalahari Plains Camp

Days 3-4: Okavango Delta: Santawani Concession

On our third day together, we fly to Tubu Tree Camp, in the southeastern section of the massive Okavango Delta. Produced by seasonal flooding, this swampy interior delta is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Needless to say, the Okavango is one of the most pristine and unique wilderness areas on the continent. It is home to some of the world's most endangered species of large mammal, including cheetahs, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dogs, and lions. We spend two days discovering these remarkable marshlands and plains—and some of its over 200,000 wildlife residents.

Our base for exploring the delta is Tubu Tree Camp, located on the Hunda Island. Hunda Island is known for its concentrations of game and offers both spectacular wildlife viewing on land, and tranquil adventures on the water. This combination of activities makes Tubu a complete Delta adventure, with thrilling day and night safari drives, and peaceful mokoro rides and boat excursions. Wildlife seen around Tubu Tree includes elephants, lions, Burchell's zebras, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains. Leopards, kudu, impala, and bushbuck are also seen in the forested areas. The variety of birdlife is impressive, with dry-land species seen on the larger islands and a multitude of wetland birds seen on the floodplains and waterways.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tubu Tree Camp

Days 5-6: Okavango Delta: Xigera Concession

Today we'll fly by small plane into the interior of the Okavango Delta, where the Okavango River spreads out through a sea of grass. Reeds and papyrus filter out the sediments of the Angola floods, leaving crystal clear waters to flow through channels covered in water lilies. Bird life is fantastic: the magnificent fish eagle is a common sight, as are a wide variety of storks, herons, ibises, and other water birds, including pygmy geese, African darter, and malachite kingfishers. Larger wildlife is interesting, too: lechwe stamp through the grassy shallows while sitatunga take shelter in the reeds (both are types of antelopes). Hippo and crocodile are common.

We'll meander through the delta's maze of waterways in eco-friendly fiberglass canoes, modeled on the traditional African wooden mokoro. Our expert boatmen pole us through narrow channels that cut through mats of floating papyrus, then across lovely deep-water lagoons. We'll also explore the larger delta islands by vehicle and motor boat—spotting wildlife such as elephant, lechwe, the elusive sitatunga, and the rare fishing owl—and our private concession area, far from the tourist crowds.

Experience paradise at Xigera Camp, located on an island amidst the isolation and silence of the delta night. Xigera is the ultimate destination for bird-watchers, and may allow close-up views of hyena, lion, or leopard sneaking across the wooden footbridge to the adjacent island. Luxuriously furnished tented rooms have en suite facilities and an outdoor shower. Along with the main dining and lounge areas, they are set on raised wooden platforms that allow great views over the floodplains. There is also a small plunge pool.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Xigera Camp

Days 7-8: Linyanti Concession

Today we fly to Duma Tau Camp in the Linyanti Game Reserve—elephant country par excellence. Here you may see large concentrations of elephants drinking and bathing at the river. There are also excellent hippo pools, and opportunities to see antelopes and lions galore.

Other wildlife is abundant here, too, either along the Savuti Marsh or in the wooded hills behind—leopard, kudu, giraffe, zebra, and warthog are all resident species. We’ll search for reclusive predators such as the African wildcat, civet, and long-legged serval cat. Another specialty is the beautifully marked Chobe bushbuck. Bird life on the Linyanti Marsh is always spectacular: storks catch thermal currents; herons, egrets, waterfowl, hornbills, kingfishers, and lilac-breasted rollers are always in abundance; seasonally, we can find colonies of gaily-colored white-fronted and carmine bee-eaters. In addition to superb game viewing aboard our safari vehicle, we may be able to go on game drives at night in search of nocturnal animals. Lions and leopards are most active at night, so we will have a good chance to observe the big cats on the prowl (water levels permitting). And if that isn't enough, we enjoy views of a large hippo-filled lagoon from the comfort of our luxury camp, which is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:DumaTau Camp

Day 9: Depart from Botswana – Optional Extension to Victoria Falls

This morning we'll bid farewell after a late-morning flight back to Maun, where you can transfer to your international flight home. Yet a more exciting option is to stick with us and take our amazing extension trip to Victoria Falls—one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! Optional activities include strolling through lush, tropical vegetation, rafting on the Zambezi River, elephant-back safaris, microflights over the falls, bungee jumping, and more.

DumaTau Camp — Linyanti Concession

DumaTau, meaning ‘roar of the lion,’ is a luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The camp is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel on Osprey Lagoon, between two elephant 'corridors,’ and is raised off the ground to take advantage of the fantastic river views. Each en-suite tent is spacious, spreading out under a canvas roof, with clear-storey sliding doors and windows that allow for wide-angled views of the riverfront. There is an airy, expansive dining and lounge area and a pool, all overlooking the lagoon and its denizens. DumaTau has a very light carbon footprint and runs on solar energy.

Kalahari Plains Camp — Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana

Located in a remote part of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, this camp offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing opportunities in Africa. Each Meru-style tent is raised off the ground to catch the breeze and offers its own viewing deck on the roof of the tent for sleeping under the stars. Common areas include a stylish lounge, communal dining area, swimming pool and deck.

Tubu Tree Camp — Okavango Delta, Botswana

Located on Hunda Island, Tubu Tree Camp is built in traditional style, with elevated wooden walkways connecting eight tents on raised platforms – each with picturesque lookouts of the surrounding floodplains from a private deck. En-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower are standard, while a family unit consisting of two adjoining tents and separate bathrooms share a lounge. The main dining and lounge areas and pool are raised to maximise the vistas, and an open bar area is shaded by a large marula tree.

Xigera Camp — Okavango Delta, Botswana

Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) lies on the aptly named Paradise Island, surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation, on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the delta. There are ten raised luxury tents with en-suite facilities, an outdoor shower, and superb views of the classic Okavango Delta floodplains that surround the camp. Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed in the lounge, bar and dining area overlooking a permanently flowing channel or under the stars in a traditional African boma. For those hot days there is a small plunge pool in which to cool off.  Xigera is a paradise for avid bird-watchers and also boasts the highest density of the rare and elusive sitatunga found anywhere in the delta.

"The camps are beautiful, the service impeccable, and the guides (most notably Andy) phenomenal!! Botswana is an amazing country—the natural beauty, inviting people, commitment to conserving the environment and wildlife is like no other! On a scale of 1-10, Andy would get a 100. He was simply the best! He was knowledgeable, organized, assertive yet relaxed, funny, caring... I honestly cannot say enough good things. The age range in our group was 12 years old to 72 and each person adored him equally. When we think back to all the amazing experiences we had in Botswana, Andy will be a part of each and every one." Kim C.

"We got on very well with the other six people who were a family and Anderson, the guide, was really good and looked after us well...We saw lions twice during the day and we had elephants just outside our tent at DumaTau. We also saw a leopard close up." Jeremy H.
