ACTIVITY LEVEL.

Each walking safari itinerary is tailor-made to match your private groups' desired activity level and interests. Our safaris are generally rated between 1+ to 3 on a scale of 1 to 5. Our walks range, on average, from 3-6 hours per day depending on which category of walking your group chooses. Setting out on foot forces us to tune in to our surroundings and observe one of the wildest places on Earth. Walks often include tracking wildlife, crossing difficult terrain and on certain days reaching our next camp for the night. Our aim is to utilize wilderness not traveled by other people, without a footprint to be seen or a car track to be crossed. Additional activities such as game drives and canoeing are available on request.

CHARTER FLIGHTS & GAME DRIVES.

Charter flights may be included in your itinerary depending on where we set up for our mobile safaris (this depends on our concessions in the Okavango Delta region which are annually renewed). The charter aircraft are light and very compact. A certain amount of stepping and bending is required to get into the seats and passengers are more likely to experience travel sickness in these small planes than on larger commercial flights.


If you have opted for the “hiker” or “stroller” categories, you will have the option to go on game drives. These excursions at the  take place in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Due to the nature of the terrain the roads are often bumpy and can be a little strenuous for passengers.  Generally, our safari vehicles have a canopy overhead to minimize exposure to the elements (sun, wind, dust), however, at times we do not use them in order to enhance visibility and photographic opportunities.
