Day 1 | Arrival on the Houseboat

Scenic Fly in a north-westerly direction from Maun Airport across the land and waterscapes of the UNESCO World Heritage Okavango Delta to Seronga. Welcoming reception and short road transfer to a jetty on the main stream of the Okavango river. Motorboat transfer to the O Bona Delta Excursions houseboat. Settle into your comfortable floating mobile home in this unique World Heritage wetland sanctuary.

Day 2 | In the Okavango Delta

After breakfast, ride the tender boat to a small outpost from which you will set out in traditional Makoro dug-out canoes guided by experienced polers. Silently the makoros glide over crystal clear waters studded with lillies opening in the morning sunlight.

A scene of blissful tranquility. Your poler gives you a guided tour of a palm fringed island where a light picnic is served before again continuing on the waterways before returning to the houseboat.

The afternoon is spent relaxing amidst this natural wonderland – or once again exploring the waterworld of the Okavango tributaries, many of which originated as hippo channels. Try your luck at fishing: your tender boat-hand will assist with pleasure (En suite cabin, FB & drinks)

Guest photographing two elephants on a traditional Mokoro Safari in Khwai

The Okavango Delta area boasts over 400 bird species. In the green season between November and April migrant species arrive from Europe and North Africa while resident birds display their breeding plumage and singing skills. In the months between May and October when the Okavango floods arrive, flocks of wattled crane and many species of herons and egrets swarm across the floodplains feeding off insects. Baboons, herds of lechwe antelope, or the odd elephant are often in view along with hippos and crocodiles. The days on the houseboat are spent soaking up nature ́s magic in the heart of deepest Africa.

Day 3 | Safaris in Khwai and Moremi

Group of guests on their Botswana Safari at the wide floodplains of Khwai.

After a leisurely breakfast, experience your houseboat gliding peacefully along the Okavango one last time before a tender boat takes you to your surface transfer.

A 15-minute bush drive brings you to the strategically-placed O Bona Moremi Safari Lodge.
