TOUR SCHEDULE

DAY 1 - OKAVANGO DELTA BUSH SKILLS


Your AfriVenture begins!

After arriving into Maun, Botswana, you will jump straight onto an open 4x4 safari vehicle with like-minded adventure seekers and be transferred deep into the Okavango Delta.

The next eight days will be guided by professionals that will be training you in the Big 5 wilderness. The safaris will take place on foot, 4x4 vehicles, by boat and mokoro (depending on water levels) covering basic survival skills, 4x4 open vehicle driving skills, wilderness walks, animal tracking, geology, as well as astronomy for navigation.

The camp you will call home is situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta and is an authentic bush camp, wild with no fences. It has nine meru-style tents, each with a short passage to an en-suite bathroom, consisting of a bucket shower and a short drop toilet. Each tent is furnished with two camp beds, sheets, pillows, duvet and towels.

A typical day in camp will be as follows:

  • Early morning rise followed by breakfast before a safari activity
  • You will then return for a short discussion on findings before enjoying a hearty lunch.
  • After lunch you may enjoy a siesta in camp.
  • Tea will be served before embarking on an afternoon safari activity.
  • Campfire and Dinner will follow.

On the eight day bush skills course, there will be one night where you will enjoy a minimalistic wilderness camping experience under the stars.
