Short Description

This special Okavango Horse Safari itinerary pairs a five-day Botswana horse safari with the iconic Shinde — two of the best the Okavango Delta has to offer. There is nothing quite like experiencing the Okavango Delta’s floodplains on a horse safari alongside its wildlife in their life-giving habitat, and Ker & Downey can’t wait to take you there

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Itinerary Description:

After a leisurely evening in Johannesburg, depart for Kujwana Camp in the Okavango Delta for an introductory presentation and orientation ride aboard your hand-selected steed at Okavango Horse Safaris.

Your Okavango horse safari begins in the Xudum and Baobab areas, exploring the remote western region of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, an astonishing maze of papyrus-lined waterways, meadows, and woodland rich in birdlife and game. On horseback, you are on equal terms with the game, cantering with herds of wildebeest and zebra and sharing grazing spots with nearby families of giraffe and elephant. After long mornings of riding at Kujwana, return to camp for lunch and a welcome siesta before partaking in afternoon and evening game drives, cooling mokoro rides, sunset drinks, and three-course candlelit meals around the communal table. At night, listen to the lion’s roar and the hippo’s watery grunt, knowing that this is as close to Africa as you will ever get.

Spend a day riding from Kujwana through the Delta's open floodplains to the comfortable tree houses of Mokolwane Camp along the Matsebi River. Your final Okavango horse safari day includes a wilderness exploration of Mokolwane and a farewell meal with your riding companions, looking out over the wandering elephant and hippo in the pools 10-feet below.

Conclude your Botswana adventures with three relaxing days at Shinde in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta, enjoying morning, afternoon, and evening game drives, game walks, mokoros, motor boats, and excellent fishing in some of the most luxurious accommodations in the Delta.
