Ker and Downey Classic Safari - Okavango Delta Experience

This is a classic fly-in safari exploring different areas of the world famous Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve. You stay in a combination of different Ker and Downey safari camps allowing you to see different wildlife, glorious scenery and experience the hospitality of 3 different luxury safari camps.

The Moremi Wildlife Reserve is situated in a corner of the Okavango Delta and covers more than 1,000 square kilometres of grassy floodplains, winding waterways, palm-fringed islands, forest and lush, lily-covered lagoons. With its mix of wetlands and
woodlands, it is a wonderful game viewing location. This is where hippos and crocodiles bathe and laze in crystal-clear waters, while the wide variety of vegetation is home to a magnificent collection of wildlife. Lion, cheetah and leopard hunt in the open veld, and the area is particularly good for wild dogs.

Courtesy of its location Shinde can offer both water and land activities year round. Motorboats or Mokoro provide a chance to experience the incredible bird, plant and reptile species found in the aquatic habitat of the Okavango Delta. Game drives are conducted by a personal guide in comfortable, specially designed game drive vehicles. There are a large number of big cats including lion, leopard and cheetah, and given the open nature of the environment, it's a good area for wild dog. For the more adventurous, guided walks are also available, while fishing enthusiasts will enjoy fishing for a variety of species such as tilapia and tigerfish.

The Real Africa Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. We are incredibly excited to have raised enough funds for two triple role rhino protection dogs for Rhino Conservation Bostwana - they are currently in training and will be deployed in summer 2018. Ker & Downey, as part of its social responsibility programme supports Bana Ba Letsatsi (which means Children of the sun), a charity that was established in 2004 with the mission of supporting vulnerable, orphaned and at risk children living in Maun. Ker & Downey donate a percentage of each safari to the charity.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 2

Okavango Delta
On arrival in Maun Airport you will be met and assisted onto your light aircraft flight to Kanana Airstrip. On arrival at the airstrip you are met and transferred to Kanana Camp. This is a small tented camp situated deep in the Okavango Delta. This 6,000 square mile maze of lagoons, channels and islands is an incredible wilderness teeming with wildlife. Here guests are able to enjoy the magnificence of the Okavango waterways and the rich wildlife that concentrates on the palm fringed islands. 2017/18 has seen a significant number of big cats on the concession with numerous lion sightings being enjoyed. A coalition of young males was recently spotted 'engaging' with the females of the resident Kanana pride.

DAY 3 - 4

Moremi Game Reserve
After breakfast you will fly from Kanana to Okuti by light aircraft again. Camp Okuti offers unusual lagoon-side, reed roofed safari chalets on raised teak decks and a choice of two game viewing activities a day. Game drives are in open vehicles where an abundance of large mammals can be seen, while powerboat excursions head towards the upper delta. This is a fabulous camp to spend your last couple of nights in the Okavango. The Moremi Wildlife Reserve is situated in a corner of the Okavango Delta and covers more than 1,000 square kilometres of grassy floodplains, winding waterways, palm- fringed islands, forest and lush, lily-covered lagoons. With its mix of wetlands and woodlands, it is a wonderful game viewing location. This is where hippos and crocodiles bathe and laze in crystal-clear waters, while the wide variety of vegetation is home to a magnificent collection of wildlife. Huge herds of impala and tsessebe roam the savannah, and waterbuck are common. Although much of the game is migratory, the choice grazing ensures game viewing all year round. Lion, cheetah and leopard hunt in the open veld, and the area is particularly good for wild dogs.

DAY 5 - 6

Okavango Delta
After breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for your onward flight. On arrival at Shinde Airstrip, you will be met and transferred to Shinde Camp in time for lunch. Shinde Camp is situated within the private Shinde Concession overlooking a permanent lagoon, hence offers a fantastic year round water wilderness experience as well large dry areas for game drives. Shinde offers 450 species of bird and 75 different mammal species. Guests can expect to see buffalo, crocodile, elephant, lion, lechwe, baboon and many other antelope species. From October to March the waters subside and extensive green open plains are the highlight. This is where the game viewing is the most diverse. Lion, cheetah and leopard are plentiful, while Tsessebe, Red Lechwe, zebra, giraffe, warthog and wildebeest are abundant.
