Maun to Moremi Game Reserve (Xakanaxa)
You will start your African ultimate wildlife tour in Maun, Botswana’s safari capital. Here you will be met by your Rockjumper guide before boarding an unforgettable charter flight into the heart of the Okavango Delta. As we wing our way over the southern delta towards Moremi the vastness and diversity of the delta will unfold beneath us.
At the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta, Moremi is home to habitats ranging from wide-open floodplains to marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast reed-beds, woodland and savannah. This diversity of habitat is matched by a phenomenally rich fauna making this one of the most rewarding areas on the continent for viewing game. After touching down we make our way to our tented camp in the Xakanaxa region in time for sundowners serenaded by the sounds of the African savannah.
