TOUR ITINERARY

Day 1:  Kujwana Camp
Arrive at Maun Airport and be met by our safari representative & transferred by light aircraft to Xudum airstrip, a 25 minute flight. You will then be transferred into the camp by vehicle which takes approximately 1 hour while carry out a game drive. After lunch under the trees, there is time for a rest before the evening ride where you can get to know your horse. Return at the camp for a candle lit dinner.

Day 2:  Kujwana Camp
Have a light breakfast and then ride westwards following elephant trails from one Palm Island to another through seas of grass into the backcountry. After lunch and a siesta, you will ride out into the plains, later enjoying a drink while the sun goes down.

Day 3:  Kiri / Xwaapu Camp
You will ride east towards the Beacon and Lion Island. These are two very large islands in the area which are cut off from Kujwana by the Xwaapu River. The area is criss-crossed with game paths leading you through a chain of rain pans. This is a great contrast to the open flood plains. Mapane forests and Acacia woodlands offer a good variety of food for Kudu and Giraffe. Breeding herds of elephant enjoy the security of the dense forest and should the pans be holding water zebra, wildebeest and buffalo will also be found. You will also have a bird walk to view different bird species.

Day 4:  Kiri / Xwaapa Camp
You will ride north east towards Moremi game reserve. This area forms seasonal marsh land and hosts a variety of exceptional bird life. Wildlife moves freely to and from the park. Have an afternoon game drive with sunset drinks and evening night drive with a spot light.

Day 5:  Kujwana Camp
Have a full day’s ride, moving from Kiri/Xwaapu to Kujwana camp. This area is on the edge of the permanent water with papyrus beds & deep lagoons.  You will see a lot of hippos and lechwe. Have a picnic lunch on a shady island and later return to Kujwana camp in the cool of the late afternoon.

Day 6: Reserve for departure
Return to Maun Airport to find your departure flight back home
