Okavango’s contrasting highlights become apparent as soon as you touch down. Elephants and buffalos roam freely before your eyes, while zebra and kudu skip across lagoon waters. Take a moment to listen, and you can appreciate the serenity. You’re hundreds of miles from any town, surrounded by waterways and flourishing forests. This is Africa’s nature at its most untouched, a landscape that permeates all the senses. But there’s also a sublime luxury to the experience. Slip into a private outdoor bathtub that overlooks an animal-dappled floodplain. Snooze around the swimming pool, and then be woken by a grunting hippo. Enjoy fine dining beneath the stars, your gaze distracted by a silhouetted giraffe wandering past.
Stay in one of Africa’s finest properties, where privacy is taken very seriously, and you could slip away without seeing another guest for the duration of your stay. It’s situated in a small private concession in the south of the Okavango. After landing at Maun International Airport, you’ll transfer to a light aircraft for the short flight into the Delta. Touch down, and it already feels like you have an exclusive wildlife world at your fingertips.
