Day 1:
Oddballs_Enclave_tent_interiorUpon arrival in Maun you will be met by Delta Air who will assist you to the light aircraft and onward air transfer to Oddballs’ Enclave.

The Enclave is on a small island just off the south-western edge of Chief’s Island, deep in the heart of the Okavango, and bordering Moremi Game Reserve. The camp is accessible only by light aircraft.

On arrival, you will be met at the airstrip and welcomed to the island by your private guide, who will remain your guide for the duration of your stay.

Oddballs’ Enclave accommodates a maximum of 10 guests, in five twin or double bedded mini Meru tents, making it a classic and intimate camp. The tents are on elevated wooden decks, each with a semi-detached private bathroom with hot and cold running water and an alfresco bucket shower.

The guest areas have a variety of comfortable seating and a raised viewing deck overlooks the sweep of the Delta – the perfect place to watch the sun or moon rise and view whatever wildlife may be visiting. Meals are enjoyed on the deck with spectacular views across the floodplains to distant island forests.

The Enclave offers only walking and mekoro, the traditional dug-out canoe of the swamps. Your private guide (maximum of two guests per guide) was born and raised in the area. He owns his mokoro (the genuine wooden article, no plastic replicas for us) and will take you out on it in the early mornings and afternoons, to nearby islands where he will walk with you to view game and the spectacular landscape that is the Okavango. On request, the camp will pack a picnic lunch for you, allowing you to stay out the whole day.
 
Walking unarmed amongst the full range of Africa’s wildlife is an experience that will live with you for a long time. Your guide is intimate with this landscape, and his knowledge of the big and little things that comprise it will astound you.

Spend two nights at Oddballs’ Enclave.

Day 3 & 4:
After breakfast at Oddballs’ Enclave, you will depart by light aircraft to Camp Savuti.

Camp Savuti tent deckCamp Savuti is a 20 minute game drive from the Savuti airstrip in Chobe National Park. The Savuti Marsh, fed by the Savuti Channel, has developed a reputation over the years as one of the world’s premier predator viewing areas, boasting one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent. A number of award-winning documentary films shot in Savuti have cemented its reputation. The Channel, dry since 1982, started flowing again in 2010 and is now once again flooding the Marsh, an area of sweet grasses that attracts herbivores of every description and, this being Africa, their attendant predators.

Camp Savuti is a small, intimate camp of 5 Meru tents accommodating a maximum of 10 guests in comfort and style. The tents have been positioned to ensure privacy and a modest level of exclusivity throughout the camp. Each tent sits on a platform, with views over the Savuti Channel. The tents are large and spacious with en-suite facilities.
In the guest areas, there is a comfortable and open lounge, bar and dining area and fire pit, all overlooking the Savuti Channel.
The activities include morning and afternoon game drives through the park and along the fringes of the channel and marsh. The game-viewing vehicles are open to facilitate game-watching and photography, and your guide will delight in showing you the beauty and diversity of Savuti’s natural wonders.
 
This camp offers superb game and birding-viewing and the open area around the marsh is truly spectacular.

Spend two nights at Camp Savuti

Day 5:
Enjoy an early morning safari, after which breakfast is served. Depart Camp Savuti via light aircraft to Maun for your onward journey.
