SUGGESTED ITINERARY Okavango Delta
MOMBO, ABU & VUMBURA/JAO
Often referred to as the best wildlife-viewing destination in the world, the Okavango Delta is a remarkable water-filled phenomenon within the arid boundaries of the Kalahari Desert. Selected for their unique habitats and extraordinary experiences, these camps combine perfectly to create an unashamedly luxurious and thrilling safari.
Where land meets water, visit either Jao Camp or Vumbura Plains, both which celebrate the true spirit of the Delta as well as the classic African safari experience. Jao Camp is the ultimate in relaxation and its exceptional island setting sees its opulent tents overlooking surrounding waters, while Vumbura Plains is a sumptuous retreat of contemporary design that boasts open and expansive rooms with a broad vista over a magnificent floodplain.
Your second destination is the ultimate wildlife destination – Mombo Camp. This quintessential luxury safari camp looks out on the almost-continuous presence of wildlife, from large herds of plains game to lurking predators.
Celebrated for its longstanding and important elephant conservation, the majestic Abu Camp is an inspiring finale. This extraordinary sanctuary transports you into the serene, sensory world of the African elephant.
