Elena has finished 10 days on an incredible flying safari around Botswana.
Day 1+2 – Lagoon + Lebala Camp, Kwando Concession
Lagoon Camp is located in a private concession on the transition of the Kwando wetlands with great game viewing. The Kwando and Linyanti Rivers form the region’s border with Namibia. The region is, in essence, a mini “Okavango Delta” with a lot of big game.
And at Lebala camp (on same concession), she got to see the wild dog which was amazing! And more lions!
Day 3 – Kwara Camp, Kwara Concession in Okavango
Kwara camp is located on a beautiful lagoon and features nine luxury tents built on raised decks, en suite facilities with flush toilets and modern amenities and a private viewing deck.
Day 4+5 – Zarafa Camp, Selinda Reserve
This magnificent Tent Camp is a small, intimate, ultra-luxurious safari camp with just four tents, located on a palm island on the edge of the northern Linyanti Swamps. Close by is the lagoon after which the camp is named. There are panoramic views of open floodplains dotted with palms. Every conceivable luxury is offered to the client from the food to the plunge pool outside the tent to the Cannon Zoom lenses camera to the binoculars – Guide walking her to the room every day!
We saw tons of Elephants, and much more…
She also did a site inspection of Selinda Camp by boat which was lovely experience!
The next day on the way to the airstrip she saw plains game and a gorgeous big male leopard just hanging out in the shade.
Day 6 & 7 – Chitabe Camp – Okavango Delta
What an absolute Treat this camp is – Happy to be back!
I met Mama Jo who is the manager at Chitabe and also Sarah from Wilderness who was waiting for us. We came to camp and dropped our stuff and started went out on a game drive and the Chitabe magic began with Ebs our guide! Wilds dogs just outside camp!
Finished with a surprise lunch set up on the Gomoti river
Day 8 + 9 – Dumatau Camp, Linyanti Concession.
Just as I thought it could not get any better, I arrived at Dumatau Camp!
How absolutely stunning is this place. You walk through the reception overlooking the whole River.
Looking at Elephants crossing the river, listening to the Hippos in the water during the day and looking at their little ears flick around in the water all day. Sadly, this is my last Camp before returning home!
I will miss this Abundance of Wildlife Roaming the plains so freely. The Magnificent African Sunrises and Sunsets.
Until next time Botswana!
