Emerald Season Special

Summary Of The Route and Costs

This 6 night Emerald Season special will take you from the spectacular Nxai Pan National Park to the waterways of the Okavango Delta and ending in the private Kwando concession, giving you totally different takes on Botswana. All camps are costed at Emerald Season reduced rates, so this itinerary is ideally taken between 15 November and 31 March to take advantage of the lower rates.

You’ll begin at Nxai Pan Camp - the only permanent camp in the Nxai Pan National Park and which is located on the western edge of the fossil pan from which it takes name, facing open grasslands. The pan is known for its huge springbok population, wildebeest, elephants and large groups of giraffe. Activities include a day trip to Baines' Baobabs, which have changed little in the 150 years since Thomas Baines immortalized them in his paintings. Another favourite is the bushman walk where guests learn how the San used to hunt, gather food and collect water.

Next, you’ll hop on a short flight to the Okavango Delta for 2 spellbinding nights. The Delta is the world’s largest inland wetland area, comprising of nearly 16,000 square kilometres of lagoons, island and channels. This great quantity of water attracts a huge number of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffes, hippos, kudus, predators such as lion, hyena and leopard, and endless birdlife. You’ll navigate the twisting channels and lagoons of the wildlife-rich region by mokoro (dug-out canoe) and set off on exciting game drives and adrenaline-fuelled walks from Splash Camp, your home for these 2 nights.

Finally, you venture further north to the private Kwando concession and onto Lebala Camp, where you will see plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe and tsessebe - closely watched by Africa's big cat predators and if you are lucky, a wild dog pack hunting! 'Lebala' means ‘wide open spaces’ in Setswana and the scenery is dominated by vast plains with scattered palms and tree islands backed by wooded savannahs. This wild expanse contrasts with the casual understated luxury of the camp itself.
