Tour Map

What do we think?


Nxai Pan and the Central Kalahari play host to the main part of this tour.  Both are differing regions which will give you a broad experience of the drier areas of the country and both are stunning in their own right.  The ecosystem here is different as is the game you will see including large herds of springbok and gemsbok, not withstanding that the region is well known for the spectacle of the zebra migration, widely considered to be the second largest migration in Africa.  If you are lucky enough, the famous black-maned Kalahari lions can also be seen as well as the secretive brown hyena.


Depending on timings and weather conditions, a trip to Baines Baobabs will be arranged to view the historic grouping of baobab trees made famous in legend by David Livingstone, amongst others.


We have rounded of the tour with a visit to Kwara Camp in the Okavango Delta, as it would be a shame not to do so whilst you are in the country and it does present to a stunning contrast of regions.


We have given the option here for 3 nights at each camp instead of 2 (total 9 nights instead of 6) as we feel that this trip benefits greatly by staying longer.

Days 1 and 2


2 nights at Nxai Pan Camp, Nxai Pan National Park


Upon your arrival at Maun airport you will be transferred by light aircraft to camp. Nxai Pan camp is the only permanent camp situated within the Nxai Pan National Park. The camp was opened in 2009 and is proving a popular desert destination along with Tau Pan camp.


The rooms are built from a light, specially selected material which keeps them warm in winter and cool in summer, a fan also helps circulate the breeze in those hotter months. The rooms are light and spacious providing a welcome relief to the arid environment.




Visit  Nxai Pan

Days 3 and 4


2 nights Tau Pan, Central Kalahari


After the summer rains – the CKGR completely transforms as the blue sky fills with huge clouds, and the plains and pans burst with sweet grasses.


This is one of the best game viewing areas in Botswana at this time of year and not many people seem to be aware of this – so the visitors are few.  The camp uses a guide and tracker system which is fantastic for enhancing your chances for great sightings.




Visit Tau Pan

Days 5 and 6


2 nights Kwara Camp, Okavango Delta


Kwara Camp is situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta, within the private Kwara concession. This beautiful camp offers a very relaxed, friendly and authentic atmosphere.


Located on an island of tall trees, each of the 8 tents is situated on a deck, (some are raised), overlooking the seasonal floodplain or the lagoon. The tracker and game viewing policy is the same as used at Lagoon camp, it is the location in the Okavango Delta which makes the difference here.




Visit Kwara

Day 7


After your mornings activities and after a short light aircraft flight back to Maun, you'll connect with your onward journey. If you choose an extension to Vic Falls, your transfers and accommodation will be arranged with Safari Lifestyles... see below.
