Mobility Impairment Tour

TOUR CODE EAI-MIT03

Length: 11 DAYS

Accessible AfricaDuring this safari we will stay in 2 very different parts of Botswana – namely, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta.

One will immediately see the difference between the water wonder-world of the lush Okavango Delta (know for its perfectly located wildlife sanctuary and wonderful scenery) and the arid desert areas of the Kalahari with its special desert-adapted plants and wildlife.

Both these areas are awe-inspiring, but for totally different reasons. We will spend most of our time camping in large safari tents with en-suite facilities. Our days will consist mainly of game-viewing during the early mornings and late afternoons. During the heat of the day, we will have time for rest and relaxation back at camp.

This safari commences and terminates in Maun, Botswana.

ITINERARY

Please note that the itinerary below could be running in reverse or other changes may occur due to accommodation availability or other unforeseen circumstances.

Day 01:

Air Botswana will carry you safely from Johannesburg International Airport, which departs at 10:00 am every day, and arrives at Maun Airport, on the fringe of the Okavango Delta, at 11:40 am.

Upon arrival you will be met by your safari guide and welcomed into Botswana. We will depart Maun for our destination - Moremi Game Reserve - situated in the eastern part of the Okavango Delta. This game reserve is ideally situated for a wildlife sanctuary. It has no fences, hence allowing unobstructed seasonal movement of game which makes this a largely natural area. This is a paradise for birds, game and predators alike.

Moremi’s scenery alone is enough reason to want to visit this park. Completely varied vegetation makes this area very special. Within an hours’ travelling it is possible to view the first of the wildlife inhabiting this area. We will stop en-route for a simple lunch of sandwiches and fruit, before continuing towards our camp. Late afternoon arrival at our camp, with enough time to settle in before having our evening meal. Afterwards we will relax around the campfire, where your guide will explain the safety precautions and will answer your various questions in order to calm your understandable apprehension for the coming days.

Day 02:

Our first morning in the Wilds - it will be an early rise, with coffee and some biscuits around the fire at first light. Early morning departure from our camp in search of various predators (such as lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyaena) antelope (such as impala, lechwe, reedbuck, tsessebe) and other game such as giraffe, zebra, etc and of course also the birds that inhabit this area.

Hippos are abundant, in the streams and lagoons that make up vast areas of the Delta. We return to camp around 10:30 for Brunch. The early part of the afternoon is spent relaxing and reading in, and around the camp. Once it becomes cooler towards the late afternoon we once again depart on a game-drive, returning to camp after sunset for our second night in the wilds.

Day 03:

A repeat of the previous days’ activities, allowing a full day to observe and understand the surrounding wilds. By the end of this day we will have explored the western part of Moremi in great detail.

 

 Day 04-06:

Today we move our camp to the Khwai River area in the eastern part of Moremi. Our daily schedules remain the same, exploring and observing the animals in their natural state. The large floodplains of this area provide good grasses for various species of antelope, which are followed by the predators. The Khwai River forms the northern border of Moremi and this is where we will spend the majority of our time game-driving.

 

Day 07: 

On this day after breakfast we depart Moremi Game Reserve for Maun Airport, from where you will depart for Cape Town via Johannesburg. Upon arrival at Cape Town, you will once again be met by your Safari Guide, who will be entertaining you for the following couple of days and nights.

Upon arrival at CPT Int. Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel, in time for an evening meal and a well-earned rest. Your guide will discuss with you the following days’ activities, as well as other points of interest.

Day 08:

This morning is a relaxed one, allowing time to adjust back into society after the past six nights in the wildest of the African Bush. Breakfast and general organising will be the aim of this morning. Your guide will meet you after lunch and transfer transfer you to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, which has become the Western Cape’s premier entertainment and shopping complex.

Being a harbour the ever-present boats and ships continue to add to the fascination of the visitors and locals alike. The Waterfront is largely sheltered by one of the worlds most striking natural wonders - Table Mountain. We will leave the Waterfront and enjoy a cable car ride to the summit of Table Mountain (weather permitting), which at it’s highest point is 1086 metres above sea level. Sunset from the top of this Massif, with unequalled views will end this day superbly. Late afternoon return to your comfortable hotel.

Day 09:

Today will be a full day’s excursion where we will take a scenic drive along the Cape Peninsula. Included in todays’ excursion will be a short boat cruise to Seal Island to view our large Cape Fur Seal Colony. At the tip of the Cape Peninsula you will find Cape Point situated within the Cape Peninsula National Park where we will transfer to the lighthouse lookout by funicular or on foot for spectacular views over the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

Lunch will be served en route at a local seafood restaurant. After lunch we will visit Boulders Beach to view our resident African Penguin colony. Dinner at a local restaurant, followed by return transfer to your hotel for a good nights rest.

 

Day 10:

After breakfast we head out to the famous wine-land areas of Stellenbosch and Franschoek, where we will explore and observe the immensity of this area. You will be able to witness the age old wine making process, and more importantly you will be able to do various wine tastings. Lunch will be at one of the many wine estates in the area. After a full day out, we will return home, before our final dinner together on this, your last evening of the tour.

 

Day 11:

Depending on your International flight times, there might be some time for final curio shopping, before your transfer to Cape Town International Airport.
