3 Days 2 Nights
Venture through Okavango Delta with Shipungo Safari & Tours, to Chief’s Island
(70 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide), which is named because it was once
the sole hunting preserve of the local chief. Raised above the water level by
tectonic activity, it is here that so much of the delta’s wildlife retreats as water
levels rise. As such, the island is home to what could be the richest concentration
of wildlife in Botswana.
In the morning we pick you from the hotel or airport to the boat station around 08:30 to Chiefs Island. Upon arrival, the staff will set up your camp and you can relax around the camp with your good book and a pair of binoculars. A professional guide will decide depending on the time that you have for a sunset cruise, and then dinner will be prepared and served by a well-trained chef in the evening after the sunset boat cruise.
Wake up in the morning with tea/coffee before going for a boat ride to experience the combination of reed-fringed waters, grasslands, and light woodlands make for game viewing that can feel like a BBC wildlife documentary brought to life. Not surprisingly, the island is home to some of the most animals and birds. Return back to the camp where lunch is served, you will rest for about two hours before sunset cruise. Return to the camp where dinner is served.
In the morning, you will have breakfast. While the staff takes down the camp, you will board a boat to Maun, our chef will provide you with a packed lunch to have lunch on the way to Maun.
