Day 1: Maun – Okavango Delta, Botswana
On arrival at Maun Airport, you will be met and assisted onto your onward light-aircraft charter flight to Pom Pom Camp. On arrival at camp, you will have time to acclimatise before taking part in your first activity in the Okavango Delta.
The Camp is on Pom Pom Island in a private concession situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta and on the headwaters of the Xudum river system. The area lies on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve and offers superb Okavango scenery and a true Okavango wilderness experience.
Day 2: Okavango Delta, Botswana
Today is spent on activities offered by the camp. Pom Camp has safari drives, mokoro- and fishing excursions, as well as bush walks on offer. The Okavango Delta is one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas of Africa.
The Delta is fed by the floodwaters of Central Africa and covers an area of some 16000 square kilometres. These waters fan out into the Okavango Delta forming a wetland system of beautiful palm-fringed channels, lagoons and islands that support a wealth of fauna and flora alike.
Day 3 & 4: Okavango Delta – Maun – Chobe National Park, Botswana
After the last morning activity and a hearty breakfast, you board your light aircraft and fly to Maun.
