Description

Day 1 Arrive at Maun International Airport. You will be met at the Airport by a safari guide holding a sign board that reads “Marvelous Mobile Safari”. The guide will take you to your place of accommodation where you will stay for 1 night on a bed and breakfast basis. Lunch and dinner will be served at your own expense. Day 2 Nxai Pans Wake up early and have your breakfast then we will depart for Nxai Pan National Park. Packed lunches and snacks will be served. Upon arrival, our camp hand will set up camp, and there will be time for Siesta. After the siesta, you will join your Professional Guide for a short game drive around the pan until sunset, the game drive will include a trip to Baines Baobabs. Baines Baobabs were named after the famous 20th century painter. The baobabs stand on the edge of a large salt pan. During those wet months, water birds abound at the lagoon and create a spectacle of great beauty. Come back to the camp in time for a shower before dinner under the African sky. Day 3 Makgadikgadi Pans National Park The morning begins with a fresh, warm bucket shower, followed by breakfast. We then depart to Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, entrance at the gate marks the start of our game drive. The game drive will take us to our campsite which will be ready and inviting. Once we have shown you to your tents and enjoyed a delicious lunch, you have the option of a siesta. Before your afternoon activity you will have high tea and then begin your game safari within the park to explore the amazing wildlife. The Makgadikgadi will provide opportunities to focus on semi-desert species such as elusive brown hyena, bat-eared fox or meerkats. We will spend a session with meerkats, following them on their activities. Return to camp for a much needed shower and dinner follows. Get a chance to soak up the wash of stars through star gazing, without any other source of light for kilometers around, the stars of Makgadikgadi burn bright, and it is spectacular. Day 4 Makgadikgadi Pans After breakfast we depart to Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, which covers an area of 3,900 square kilometers. The region of vast open plains, salt pans and ancient riverbeds is home to large herds of springbok, gemsbok. Blue wildebeest, red hartebeest and the largest of all antelopes, the eland. Made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the book Cry of the Kalahari, we will camp here for 1 night. During our stay here we will track the black maned lion of the Kalahari. African wild dogs, cheetahs, brown hyenas can also be found following their prey in this unmated wilderness. The black maned lion of the Kalahari has a dominant color, its adaptation is very high and therefore it can survive in harsh conditions. Day 5 Tour End You will do a game drive after breakfast as you depart to Maun where you will be transferred to the airport to continue with other travel arrangements. Shake hands at the Airport and goodbye
