Itinerary

Day 1 - 3: Moremi Game Reserve

Accommodation: Letaka Tented Camp

Departing from Maun Airport this morning, you will travel by charter flight to Xakanaxa Airstrip. If you are staying in Maun, you will travel by road to the lodge.

Spending three nights camping in the Xakanaxa region, you will explore the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day.

Xakanaxa offers the opportunity to spot raptors with African Hawk-Eagle, Gabar Goshawk, Shikra, Little Sparrowhawk, Dark Chanting Goshawk, Tawny Eagle, Lesser Spotted Eagle* and Steppe Eagle* all inhabiting the mopane and adjacent woodlands. Other birds common along this route includes most of Botswana’s hornbills including Red-billed, Southern Yellow-billed, African Grey, Bradfield’s and the Southern Ground Hornbills.

Day 4: Khwai Concession

Accommodation: Letaka Tented Camp

After a sumptuous early morning breakfast, you will take a slow drive through Moremi Game Reserve north-east towards the Khwai Community Area.

The day’s journey follows a watercourse, with the track weaving from the riverside and floodplains into the mopane veld and the woodlands that make Khwai one of the most scenic areas of the Okavango. You will pass the magnificent Dombo Hippo Pools in the morning, stopping to enjoy the scenery and the antics of the resident hippo.

Day 5 - 6: Khwai

Accommodation: Letaka Tented Camp

The following two nights will be spent camping at an exclusive campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you an opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day.

You will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot as well as by mokoro and enjoy an up close and personal encounter with Botswana’s flora and fauna. It is important to note that night drives and guided walks are not permitted within the national parks and reserves. These activities are conducted outside the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Khwai community area.

Day 7: Depart Khwai

After an early breakfast, you will gather your belongings and travel back by road to Maun Airport where you will connect with your onward travel arrangements.

Reviews

"The Miracle Rivers safari exceeded our expectations. Local staff were well trained to meet our standards and hopes. It was nice not to have someone supervising staff but know that they were each competent and confident with their duties to deliver the exceptional holiday we had. Pat our guide gave us more than just a guided tour, he provided a challenge to our sons birding knowledge and photographic training. We were in Botswanna with the local people learning about their country and their wildlife, which I must say was amazing over 200 species of birds spotted and a dozen leopards. If we ever can we will return."

"A last minute idea with a group of friends turned into the best safari we have ever had. We flew to Xaxanaka taking great photos over the Delta as we went, and camped about an hour away. Every day's drive was a treat. We saw lion, leopard, wild dog, all the antelopes and elephants and giraffe you could want and the most amazing birds. Our guide brought everything to life so well, it was just amazing. There is something so magical about the Okavango - around every corner there is a vista so beautiful it could have been drawn by Disney. Our camp staff cooked us up fabulous food in their underground tool box ovens, provided us bucket showers when we needed, and were just fun to be with. We saw hardly anyone else on our trip and felt completely privileged to be there. Absolutely can't wait to go back."
