Itinerary

Journey into the depths of the Okavango Delta in Botswana to explore two different regions that promise diverse wildlife encounters and immersive activities. You’ll then escape to Mozambique for an off-grid beach retreat, in the dazzling Bazaruto archipelago. We’ve handpicked some of the most stylish properties so you can enjoy these wild places with touches of luxury along the way and most importantly, extraordinary experiences that will make you the envy of your friends.

  1. Fly to Maun

  2. Days 1-4: Khwai Private Reserve

    Flying overnight from London you’ll touch down in Johannesburg before boarding a flight to Maun. Feel your excitement build as you board your light aircraft and fly over the Okavango Delta, watching in astonishment at the waterways ahead of you. Landing at the airstrip, you’ll be met by your guide and game driven to Machaba Camp. This elegant bush camp occupies a beautiful spot in the Khwai Concession, overlooking the Khwai River. Your luxury tented room is hidden amongst thickets, offering you privacy and the feeling of being right in the heart of the bush. After enjoying a delicious lunch spread in the stylish dining tent, you’ll head out on your first game drive, meandering around waterways and passing lush vegetation, which is teeming with wildlife. The area is known for African wild dog and you may be lucky enough to encounter a pack of these highly intelligent canines.  

    During your time here, as well as game drives during the day you’ll be able to stay out after dark in the vehicle and keep a look out for the rare, elusive species; there is nothing quite like being in a leopard’s presence as she gazes out at you from the high branch of a tree. A mokoro (traditional wooden canoe) ride down the river is an experience not to be missed, as you really capture the essence of the Delta.

    Accommodation: Machaba Camp (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-7: Chitabe Concession

    This morning after a safari activity, you’ll catch a light aircraft flight and head south to Gomoti Plains Camp, located in a private concession. This elegant, eco-luxury camp is surrounded by towering palm trees and has a wild and pristine game viewing location, with a thriving population of plains game passing through camp. With an enviable location on the flood plain system, you can enjoy mokoro rides direct from Gomoti at the crack of dawn, listening to the chorus of birds songs as you float along the channel. During your time here you’ll be fully immersed in this private wilderness area, game driving for high chances of seeing the elusive leopard or wild dog, and plenty of opportunities to get up close to lions and elephants. You’ll also have the opportunity to access areas that vehicles cannot reach, as you venture out on a walking safari; nothing heightens your senses like walking through a remote area alive with wildlife. Evenings will be spent watching the spellbinding sunsets of Gomoti, with a glass of wine in hand. 

    Accommodation: Gomoti Plains Camp (3 nights)

  4. Days 7-8: Johannesburg and surrounds

    After one last venture into the wild this morning, you’ll be flown back to Maun airport to connect to your flight to Johannesburg. You’ll be met off the plane by a representative and whisked through the airport to your private driver, who will transfer you to The Peech, a quirky and luxurious boutique hotel, ideal for a restful night before flying to Mozambique the following morning.

    Accommodation: The Peech (1 night)

  5. Days 8-13: Bazaruto and the south coast

    Exotic beach-bliss awaits. After an early breakfast your driver will take you back to the airport in time for your flight to Vilanculous. You’ll then hop on a helicopter and fly into Benguerra Island in style, with a 360 view of the Bazaruto archipelago. The staff at Azura Marlin will welcome you into their island home, which is comprised of just 10 villas dotted along a magnificent stretch of talcum-soft sand beach. Your beach escape can be as chilled out or energetic as you wish; whether that’s taking to the water on SUP or kayak, or sinking into tranquillity on your four-poster daybed, listening to the waves gently lapping the shoreline. For something truly special, ask us about arranging a private picnic on a remote sandbar or perhaps a diving trip along the 2-mile reef. Your evenings will be spent enjoying delicious candle lit dinners on the beach beneath a blanket of star constellations.

    Accommodation: Azura Marlin Beach (5 nights)
