Day 3 - Okavango Delta
After breakfast we board our plane, flying over the winding channels of the Delta. A game drive to camp sees us arrive at our home for the next two nights. Upon arrival we settle in and prepare for our afternoon sunset game drive. Tonight we spend the evening around the campfire accompanied by the many sounds of the bush.
Day 4 - Okavango Delta
An early start sees us head off on the crystal clear waters of the Okavango. Water lily beds and palm islands make for the most scenic of experiences.
