Every morning you wake-up early and have breakfast and head out into the wilderness. The route you will take and the transport used is based on the movement of the wildlife and the specific targets for the day. Wilderness excursions are done on foot, by vehicle, by boat and dug-out canoe. Return to camp by late morning for a short lecture on one of the days topics. Lecture topics include “wildlife and ecology of the Okavango”, “hydrology of the Okavango”, “fascinating birds”, “mammal behavior”, “African conservation issues” and more. A hearty lunch is served in camp followed by time for shower, siesta and personal study time. Tea is served in the mid-afternoon and followed by an afternoon excursion.
During the week at Kwapa you will do a sleep-out where we load the bare minimum and head out by boat or mokoro to a remote island and set up a sleep-out fly-camp where you sleep under the stars for the night. Return to camp before lunch the following day.
