All our itinerary holidays are fully customisable

Okavango Delta
1 - 2Days

Okavango Delta

Arrive independently into Maun Airport, meet your guide and transfer to Oddballs' Enclave Camp (just 5 minutes), located on the edge of Chief's Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta is where the wild things are: an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. The real magic of the Delta lies in its water, trickling through from far away highlands, and spreading across the channels and floodplains. Your accommodation here is in comfortable en-suite tents on wooden platforms shaded by reed shelters. There is comfortable seating in the bar and lounge area which overlooks the sweep of the delta and is great for game viewing. The highlights at Oddballs are full or half day walking safaris, ideal for the active traveller, along with paddling by mokoro (canoe) in the shallow waters watching hippos, birds and other wildlife.

Oddballs’ Enclave pays homage to a time when safaris were a real adventure. Activities are conducted by your own professional guide (a maximum of two guests per guide. The activities at Oddballs’ Enclave usually start by mokoro (water level dependant), after which you will walk on some of the larger islands in the area. Walking is an integral and significant part of the experience at any time of year. The extent of the walks will depend on your tastes. Some guests elect to go out for the whole day with a packed picnic lunch. It is often said that the very best way to experience the wonders of the African bush is on foot and Oddballs’ Enclave certainly lives up to that claim.

2 nights’ accommodation at Oddballs’ enclave Camp on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, local drinks and park fees included.

Scheduled Activities Included: Mokoro excursions (water level dependent), bushwalks and cultural village visit.

Mobile Safari - Khwai Community Area
3 - 4Days

Mobile Safari - Khwai Community Area

On the morning of day 3, after any early activity and breakfast, return to the airstrip and fly to Khwai airstrip, where you will meet your guide to begin your six night fully-serviced mobile camping safari. On safari, you will stay in large dome tents with camp beds and en-suite bush toilet and shower. All camping equipment is provided, and as this is a non-participation safari, your team of guides and camp assistants will carry out all the necessary camp chores to keep the safari running smoothly.

The appeal of a private safari is that your days are flexible to plan with your private guide in accordance with your preference - following and tracking wildlife movements from the crack of dawn; searching for rare bird species or setting up by a waterhole to wait for the perfect sunset photograph. A full day in camp usually starts at sunrise around the campfire with a light breakfast. You then head out as early as is permitted to be the first on the roads to track fresh spoor left from the animal's overnight activities – you may spot fresh lion tracks walking straight past the camp or evidence of a passing herd of buffalo not far away. Generally on the morning game drive you stop for tea and head back to camp by late morning. In camp you may enjoy a lunch or brunch, depending on the time, and then there is plenty of time for showers and that great safari tradition 'siesta time'. You meet together for afternoon tea and then head out on the afternoon activity, perhaps seeking a new area or returning to a great morning sighting.

The first two days will be spent in the Khwai Community area and Moremi Game Reserve, an area rich with an abundance of wildlife and birds. You will spend most days exploring the narrow Khwai River, including enjoying a Mokoro excursion, and taking sunrise and afternoon game drives. The Khwai River is a beacon for wildlife and plays host to leopards stalking lechwe in the long grass, lions swimming from the banks to save their cubs’ during territorial disputes and crocodiles competing with wild dogs for a midday meal of impala.

2 nights’ accommodation on a Bushways Fully Serviced Mobile Safari on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, local drinks, park fees and mentioned activities included. The mobile safari includes the services of a Professional Guide, Camp Chef and an Assistant.

Savute, Chobe National Park
5 - 6Days

Savute, Chobe National Park

After breakfast on day 5, you will take a 5-6 hour drive through the bush and on to the Savuti area of Chobe National Park. The drier region of Savuti is known for its bull elephants and predators, such as lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog. We expect to see especially large herds of elephant and water buffalo.

Game drives will see you explore the wildlife-rich southern area of the park.

Chobe National Park / Chobe River
7 - 8Days

Chobe National Park / Chobe River

On the morning of day 7, you will take another bush drive northwards to the Chobe River and meander along the river bank, spotting the impressive African Fish Eagle along the way. The Chobe River floodplain is an amazing game viewing area, where the water attracts large herds of buffalo, elephants and various antelopes. This concentration in turn attracts predators affording superb viewing and photographic opportunities. Highlights also include the unforgettable sunsets that the area is famous for.

During your time in Northern Chobe, you will enjoy game drives as well as a cruise on the river where you can get close to aquatic animals and birds not easily seen on safari.

There are lots of activities available here. Visiting the Falls is a must and viewpoints are easily accessible on foot. For adrenalin junkies, there is white-water rafting, bungee and zip-wiring and for everybody, river cruises, helicopter flights and visits to the national park.

On day 11, after breakfast, you will transfer to the airport for onward or return travel.
