Fly-in Safari | 9 nights / 10 days

Day 1: Arrival at the Maun Airport

Upon arrival at the Maun Airport you will be transferred to the Thamalakane Lodge. The lodge is placed on the banks of the Thamalakane River and en-route to the famous Moremi Game Reserve. Here you will be able to enjoy a beautiful sunset, while relaxing on your private patio. The rest of the day is at leisure.

Overnight: Thamalakane River Lodge including breakfast

Day 2-4: Moremi National Park

You will be transferred to the Maun Airport in time for your chartered flight to the Xakanaxa Camp. Big lagoons and big game offer a land and water experience in the Okavango Delta. Set in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is rated as being one of the finest game viewing areas in Africa, Xakanaxa Camp has one of the best locations in Botswana ensuring land and water safaris all year round. Here you will spend three nights and enjoy a variety of activities to get to know the area.

Overnight: Xakanaxa Camp including all meals, local drinks and activities

Day 5: Impalila Island

Chartered flight to the Kasane airport, where you will be met and taken to the Kasane Immigration. Here you will once again be met and taken by boat to the lodge.

Upon arrival at the Ichobezi River Lodge you can settle into your safari tent and then enjoy a light lunch.  After lunch you will have the opportunity to join an afternoon activity. This could be an evening game cruise within the Chobe National Park on a tender boat with your own guide and a few sundowners to appreciate the spectacular beauty of a Chobe sunset.

Dinner is served at 20h00 and this will give you the opportunity to meet your hosts and to leave the table with a greater understanding of the area, the history, the local people and the importance of this very unique part of Africa. It will also hopefully give you the chance to enjoy a superb meal with a selection of wines and spirits.

Day 6: Transfer to the Ichobezi Safariboat

You will have your breakfast at 08h30.

Then you will take part in a morning activity of your choice whether it be going with your guide and a tender boat to explore the various waterways around, bird book, binoculars or even fishing rod in hand; or getting your guide to take you on a walk on Impalila Island to learn about its history, meet the local villagers or even to climb our very old and very big Baobab tree which has spectacular views as the reward.

A light lunch will be served at 13h30, after which you will be transferred to the Ichobezi Safariboat at 14h00.

Spend the afternoon on board the Safariboat enjoying the incredible scenery around you that the elevation of the Safariboat brings.  Huge herds of elephant, buffalo and antelope will provide a never ending sense of wonder, and the feeling of cruising on the Safariboat will be an experience you never forget.

After docking of the Safariboat, dinner is served at 20h00 with the sounds of the African bushveld providing the evening’s entertainment.

Day 7: Ichobezi Safariboat

The day is entirely yours and you are free to spend it as you like.  You can laze around the sun deck just watching the constant coming and goings of the wildlife and birds around you.  You can take a tender boat with a guide and go looking for up close and personal sightings of the game and get extraordinary photo opportunities.  Or you can go off fishing to try and catch (and then release) the elusive Tiger fish.

Generally breakfast is served at 08h30 and lunch at 13h00 but we are very flexible so if you would like to re-arrange these times to suit you better you would just need to let us know at dinner the night before (i.e. if you want to get up really early and then come back for brunch at 10h30 or 11h00 this would be perfectly fine with us).

Day 8: Ilala Lodge

After a boat transfer back to the immigrations a representative of Wild Horizons will take you to the Ilala Lodge. After check-in at the lodge the rest of the day is at leisure and could already be used to visit the Victoria Falls. Alternatively you can spend the afternoon at the lodge and dine at the Palm Restaurant (at own expense), from which you can see the spray of the falls in the background. Wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns.
