5 day Okavango Delta, Botswana

Okavango Delta as its Best. Tubu Tree and Little Vumbura. Add on - Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. This can be offered as a private flying Safari (pilot and aircraft stay with you) as well as a commercial tour with flight from Johannesburg to Maun and return, as quoted here. Please enquire separately for the option with the private aircraft.

DAY 1

Arriving in paradise

After you arrive in Maun you will be greeted by a representative of Tubu Tree and guide to your flight into the Delta. The Okavango Delta is a unique pulsing wetland. More correctly an alluvial fan, the delta covers between 6 and 15 000 square kilometres of Kalahari Desert in northern Botswana and owes its existence to the Okavango (Kavango) River which flows from the Angolan highlands, across Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and into the harsh Kalahari Desert. On arrival at the camp, management will welcome you, introduce the camp and its surroundings, discuss the programme, answer your questions and in general ensure your comfort. After High Tea at about 15h30, the first afternoon game drive will commence. You return to the camp well after sunset to a delicious dinner and drinks around the campfire. Read more

Tubu Tree Lodge
DAY 2

Tubu Tree and what it has to offer

Activities include day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, mokoro (canoe) excursions and motor boat cruises (seasonal). A variety of habitats ensures diverse and interesting wildlife viewing. Species that can be seen include elephant, lion, zebra, red lechwe, giraffe, tsessebe, wildebeest as well as kudu, impala, leopard and bushbuck. Expect a very early wake-up call, for game viewing is often at its best this time of the day. A light breakfast awaits you, then it’s time to collect binoculars and camera for the early morning game drive. You return for a hearty brunch, siesta and the afternoon’s excursion. Read more

Tubu Tree Lodge
DAY 3

Little Vumbura

After morning game drive and brunch, depart for the short flight to Little Vumbura. On arrival at the camp, management will welcome you, introduce the camp and its surroundings, discuss the programme, answer your questions and in general ensure your comfort. After High Tea at about 15h30, the first afternoon game drive will commence. You return to the camp well after sunset to a delicious dinner and drinks around the campfire. Since your previous lodge was a ‘land’ camps with emphasis on driving, you may want to concentrate on water activities here. Read more

Little Vumbura
DAY 4

Little Vumbura and all it has to offer

You have all day to enjoy both water- and landscapes. The shallow waterways and floodplains are ideal for mokoro outings. A motorboat cruise through papyrus-lined channels to the nearby deeper waters of the Monachira stream gives you an excellent idea of how the Delta came about and how it revitalizes itself every year. A game drive may yield sightings not yet experienced, and a walk bring understanding for the smaller creatures and plant life. Choose from game drives in open vehicles, by motorboat or canoe, or take a stroll under the watchful eyes of an armed ranger. Read more

Little Vumbura
DAY 5

Return to Maun

After morning game drive and brunch, depart for the short flight to Maun in time to connect with your next flight.

The communication with Cross Country Air Safaris was extremely simple and efficient. Juliane understood perfectly well from the beginning what we were looking for and our budget and time limitations and organization on the trip accordingly. The organization was simply perfect, we did’t have a single issue during our trip there and back or our stay. Read more

Rüdiger Louis, Germany

It was quite easy to get in contact if you need a reservation at a special place, restaurant and so on, but the best was the support during the planning of the trip. The lodges are very comfortable they recommend us. For me it was also very nice that we could communate in german language. Next time when I will visit this country again!!! Read more
