On this 3 Day Okavango Delta experience we fly you into Kadizora Camp in the northern part of the wetland wilderness. Kadizora Camp is an intimate safari camp that offers spacious and luxurious tented suites with a commanding view over the flood plain. Apart from the daily game viewing activities included in your stay, you get to enjoy a dawn flight in a hot air balloon over the area.
The safari starts and ends at Maun Airport in Botswana, and can easily be added onto an existing safari you may have, or just as easily extended to other parts of Botswana or the region.
Day 01 - Maun – Okavango Delta
On arrival in Maun you will be met and assisted to the light aircraft for your air transfer over the Okavango Delta to Kadizora Camp. Here you will be met and transferred by game viewing vehicle to Kadizora Camp. Kadizora will be your home base for the next (2) nights on a fully inclusive basis. This afternoon, enjoy one of Kadizora’s game viewing activities – a game drive, a guided walk or a mokoro (canoe) excursion.
Day 02 - Hot Air Ballooning in the Okavango Delta at Kadizora Camp
Enjoy an early game drive en route to the balloon launch site where you will have tea, coffee and snacks while you watch the ground crew inflating the balloon. After a safety briefing, the balloon will take off 10 minutes before sunrise when the air is at its calmest. The incredible birds-eye perspective of the Okavango Delta unfolding beneath you is mesmerising – an intriguing pattern of swamps, lakes and lagoons dotted with islands and an intricate network of wildlife paths forming water channels resembles the veins of a leaf. The balloon will drift with the air currents for approximately 45 minutes giving you the opportunity to spot as much wildlife as you can.
Keeping with tradition, the flight will be celebrated with champagne and orange juice and snacks and the pilot will present a commemorative flight certificate in recognition of your ‘bravery’! On the game drive back to camp, reminisce on your spellbinding morning suspended over the Okavango Delta. The entire experience will take approximately 4 hours. The remainder of the day is yours to relax in camp and partake in an afternoon game viewing activity.
Day 03 - Okavango Delta – Maun
Today, enjoy the views of the amazing Okavango Delta on your light aircraft transfer back to Maun Airport.
