Letaka Mobile Camp - Khwai
Enjoy a rewarding safari from this Letaka mobile camp in Khwai concession of the Okavango Delta. This is a fully-serviced mobile camp, offering superb guiding and activities ranging from game-drives and bush walks to mokoro rides in the waterways.
A mobile safari is one of the best way to get up close to the wildlife and landscapes of the Okavango Delta and an authentic safari experience. The Khwai concession offers the best of all terrains - from the marshes and waterways you expect in the Okavango Delta to open savannahs and woodland habitats. Your safari activities are varied, from game-drives and night-drives to bush walks looking at the smaller details of the bush and mokoro (dug-out canoe) rides through the waterways. The different habitats makes Khwai home to a superb range of wildlife to encounter, with large breeding herds of elephant, red lechwe in the western swamps, sable and roan antelope and of course the predators which include lion, leopard and serval.
Often referred to as Botswana's "birdwatching Mecca", the western reaches of the Khwai concession are home to species including the rare rosy-throated longclaw, whilst the riverbanks act as the favoured hunting ground of the bat-hawk. It is an incredible place to see a whole host of different raptors including the cuckoo hawk and the bateleur eagle.
You will be staying in simple but comfortable walk-in tents, measuring 3 x 4 metres (9 x 13 feet), with an ensuite bathroom with long drop toilet and bucket shower to the back. You will sleep on solid-based camp beds with mattresses, pillows and duvets, and towels are also provided, although toiletries such as shampoo are not.
