Day 6
This morning you will be transferred to Kasane Airport by your guide in time for your 
scheduled light aircraft charter flight to Mapula.
Mapula Lodge is situated in the remote North Eastern area of the Okavango Delta, outside
the National Park. All the activities and adventure safaris at this Botswana safari lodge, 
allow you to witness and experience the beauty of Africa.
Accommodation is in 10 well appointed luxury Chalets, each with en-suite facilities 
(bath and shower) and each overlooking the lagoon in front of the Lodge. The attention 
to detail and use of local craftsmanship in the construction of the Chalets is particularly
impressive and attractive.
Facilities in the Lodge include a small swimming pool and sun deck and a well stocked bar.
Game viewing is particularly good in this area. Hippos live in the lagoon opposite the 
lodge, and the trees around the Lodge are home to a huge variety of birds.
Mapula Lodge is the first (and currently the only) Lodge in the Okavango owned by a 
Batswanan named Modumo who runs the Guiding. A South African couple manages the 
hospitality. This 'hands on' ownership and management makes Mapula Lodge one of the most
welcoming Lodges in the Okavango!
Being in a permanent water area, Mapula Lodge can offer year round water activities, 
especially important during January - May when water levels in the Okavango can become 
too low to allow the use of the traditional mokoro.
3 x Overnights at Mapula in a standard twin chalet with private en-suite facilities 
inclusive of all meals, all local brand drinks, teas/coffees, snacks, game-viewing and
laundry.

Day 9
A transfer today, to the airstrip in time for your scheduled light aircraft charter flight 
to Delta Airstrip where you will be met by your guide and transferred by mokoro to the camp 
for check-in.
This intimate and informal safari camp nestles on a small Falcon close to the south-western 
edge of Chief's Falcon, heart of the Okavango Delta - the vast oasis of the Kgalagadi 
Desert, Botswana. 
Accommodation is in spacious 'lethaka' (reed) chalets with en-suite facilities. The 
amazing design of the Chalets is such that you enjoy the luxuries of a 'top rate' hotel,
but without affecting the environment; you will find you share your chalet with the trees 
around which the chalets have been built rather than having been cut down during their 
construction.
Delta Camp was voted the best Safari Lodge in Southern Africa by the prestigious South 
African Getaway Magazine in its 2004 anniversary edition.
The Okavango Delta is a shifting web of crystal-clear channels, lagoons,sweeping 
floodplains and palm-studded Falcons. Home to over 450 bird and 1,000 plant species,
crocodile, hippo, elephant, buffalo - in fact the full spectrum of African big-game and 
several species of antelope that are amongst the world's rarest - the Okavango has earned 
its reputation as one of the world's premier wilderness areas. Your chalet at Delta Camp 
directly overlooks the waterways.
Delta Camp is on the banks of the Boro, one of the primary watercourses of the Okavango. 
Excursions, by foot and mokoro - the tradional dug-out canoe - are conducted in the 
renowned Moremi Game Reserve, with your own professional game-guide, a man of the swamps,
completely at one with his environment.
Dine in the elegant Dining Room overlooking the sweep of the Delta, or take a beautifully
prepared picnic onto one of the many nearby Falcons for a secluded and intimate experience.
This unusual Camp engenders in its staff and guests alike, an acute awareness of the 
ecological sensitivity of this magnificent area. 
Bio-degradable products have been sourced and are used, careful separation and treatment 
of refuse ensures that nothing that is not fully bio-degradable stays on the Falcon - light
aircraft remove cans, bottles and the like from the Okavango altogether.
The accent is on peace and tranquility (stalking game on foot provides all the excitement
one could wish for) and guests are actively encouraged to visit a local village, home to 
our guides, and to interact, should they wish to, with the people there.
2 x Overnights at Delta Camp in a standard double chalet with private en-suite facilities 
inclusive of all meals, all local brand drinks, teas/coffees, snacks, game-viewing and 
laundry.
