The Jacana Safari...Northern Botswana
13 days/12 nights
This high quality safari offers a combination of cross
country drives and light aircraft transfers to enable guests
access to some of the best areas of Northern Botswana.
Accommodation consists of a pre-erected tented camp in the Chobe
River area, and small permanent tented camps in the Okavango
Delta and Linyanti.
A unique feature of this safari is that many nights are spent in
private concessions far from others in superb game country,
where night drives and off road driving are permitted.
All meals are included except for lunches and dinners in Victoria
Falls. Local drinks are included in Botswana. Guests are limited
to eight and a guide that accompanies the safari.
Days 1 to 3: The Central Okavango Delta - Kaparota
After arrival in Maun, you are met by your guide and
transferred by light aircraft to the northern sector of the
Okavango Delta. There is excellent game viewing. All the cats,
Buffalo, Elephant, Hyena, and good general game including large
herds of Zebra and Wildebeest all contribute to a memorable
Okavango Delta experience.
Days 4 to 6: Okavango Delta - Jacana Camp.
The group is flown into Jacana Camp for the next three
nights. Jacana is a true water camp, offering mekoros and
walking all year round.
Days 7 and 8: The Linyanti - Linyanti Tented
Transfer by light aircraft to Linyanti Tented Camp. This is a
small, intimate tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes
in a private reserve, which borders the western boundary of
Chobe National Park.
Days 9 to 11: Chobe National Park
Depart early for the drive north to Chobe, where the camp has
been set up in a private site on or near the banks of the Chobe
River. On the Chobe floodplains, one can sometimes view
Elephants in numbers not found else where on the continent,
while water birds such as egrets, herons, ducks and storks occur
Day 12: Victoria Falls
It is a leisurely drive from the Chobe River to Victoria Falls.
Arrival at Ilala Lodge will be around midday. Balance of the day
at leisure to explore the rain forests alongside the Falls, or
