Windhoek to Etosha

Today the adventure begins. Depart after breakfast for Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s best-loved wildlife sanctuaries. Head out for an afternoon game drive to search for elephant, the unique black-faced impala, zebra, endangered black rhino, or any of the more than 100 mammal species the park is home to. In the rainy season, the salt pans turn into shallow lakes, with pelicans, flamingos and other bird species flocking to this temporary water haven. Animals often cluster around the watering holes close to the campsites and this offers you the unique opportunity to sit and wait for the animals to come to you. These fenced watering holes have seating areas and are perfectly safe. Floodlights give you the opportunity to sit at the waterhole right through the night and enjoy the interaction between different species around the water.

Day13

Maun (Okavango Delta)

Today you will experience a new way of travelling – to go into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro, the same way as the local people do. You will be transferred to the ‘’polling’’ station either with a motorized boat or a 4×4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.  A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people.  The mokoro is steered by a ‘’poler” standing at the back, manoeuvring the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.  Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends  on the time of year and water levels of the Delta.  You will stop at an island and enjoy a nature walk. Then you head back to Maun, again in your mokoro enjoying the late afternoon sun back at the lodge.

This will probably be the closest you will get to these wild animals on foot.
