From there we will hop on a short (approximately 20-minute) charter flight into the southeastern portion of the Okavango Delta region. Your safari lodge will be at Mma Dinara, a beautiful tented-accommodation situated in the neighboring concession to the one in which we conduct walking safaris in the Okavango Delta. An afternoon game drive or water-based activity (depending on water levels) can be enjoyed for your afternoon at the lodge.
