Included Activities: Border Crossing (Zimbabwe - Botswana) Transport: Lando Lando
Day 4
Kasane/Gweta
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 Kasane/Gweta: When the rain comes, it brings life to the pans, awakening the dormant fish and aquatic shrimps from the mud. The surrounding grasslands also teem with life and are home to many antelope, which attract a wide variety of predators. Transport: Lando
Day 5
Gweta/Maun
None Breakfast, Lunch
Day 5 Gweta/Maun: Opt to catch a bird's-eye view of the delta on a scenic flight.

Day 6
Maun, Botswana
None Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 Maun/Okavango Delta: After leaving some of our luggage in Maun, we begin our exciting excursion into the delta as we drive about 1-2 hrs (depending on which dock we go to) to the "dock". Here, we hop into a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, which will take us deep into the delta. After a couple hours in a mokoro, we arrive to our basic bush camp. Additional Notes: Please note that there will be no shower tonight, as our camp is very basic in the wild - you will be compensated by the incredible landscape and wildlife! Once we are in Maun, you can pick up any supplies and prepare for our excursion into the Okavango Delta. We recommend you buy a 5 litre bottle of water to take with you into the Delta; this should be sufficient to use for drinking and cleaning purposes.

G Adventures combines the best cultural, scenic, culinary, and social experiences into one trip that leaves you feeling humbled, grateful, appreciative, and eager for more. Their organization and professionalism made traveling a breeze. Our trip left us feeling fulfilled, but it took me only a couple minutes with WiFi to start researching our next G Adventure.
