Private Wilderness Experience Botswana – Trip Summary
As part of this Private Wilderness Experience, you and a group of about fifteen other participants will spend two weeks in a camp in the picturesque Kwapa region – amidst Botswana’s awe-inspiring Okavango Delta.
Each day of the trip, you will either go on game drives, walking safaris or even a mokoro tour to explore the incomparable flora and fauna of the planet’s largest inland delta. At least one experienced guide will always be by your side, dedicated to showing you the secrets of the wild.
Witness stunning animal sightings, gain valuable nature knowledge and go back to the roots – experience a personal once-in-a-lifetime adventure surrounded by the untouched wilderness of Southern Africa!
Day 1: Arrival in Maun and transfer to Camp Kwapa
On the day the Private Wilderness Experience starts, you should arrive at Maun Airport around noon. A member of the team on site will meet you and the others to set off for your two-hour drive to beautiful Camp Kwapa.
After your arrival you will be greeted by the camp team, move into your shared tent and may enjoy a first afternoon drive in the spectacular Kwapa region.
Day 2-14: Exploration days in Moremi Game Reserve
For the following two weeks, you and your group will immerse yourself into the breathtaking depths of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Each day, you will leave Camp Kwapa early in the morning to set off for a game drive or walking safari. Accompanied by at least one experienced guide, you will now get close to the incomparable flora and fauna of the region. Look forward to awe-inspiring landscapes and, with a little bit of luck, sightings of huge elephant herds, hunting wild cats and stomping buffaloes.
Before the midday heats sets in, you will make your way back to Camp Kwapa. Here, you will enjoy lunch together, join a classroom unit to broaden your theoretical wilderness knowledge and gather new energy during the following siesta.
In the afternoon, after some coffee, tea and crackers, you will leave the camp again to go on another certainly exciting bush excursion. After hopefully many more unforgettable wildlife sightings, you return to Kwapa in the evening to spend the remainder of the day enjoying a hearty bush dinner and gathering around the campfire to talk about the day’s events.
A typical day usually consists of two activities – either a game drive in an open 4×4 vehicle or a game walk. The daily meals are always taken in camp. All in all, there is no fixed tour plan – you rather let the rhythm of nature guide you day by day.
Day 15: Transfer from Camp Kwapa back to Maun
Day 15 marks the last day of your Private Wilderness experience – a certainly unforgettable adventure. Together with the other group members you will make your way back to Maun where you depart on your journey back home or to another destination.
