DAY 3: Khama Rhino Sanctuary
Our destination today is the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, a community-based wildlife project that was established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing white rhino and other wildlife as well as support the local community. We explore the sanctuary on an afternoon game drive in search of white rhinos.
DAY 4: Makgadikgadi Pans region
Today we travel towards the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park area of Botswana. After settling into our accommodation, we take a stroll with our guide through the surrounding baobab grove. He will explain the local ecology, geology and the unique biology of the baobabs, which are in fact not trees but the largest succulents in the world.
DAY 5: Nxai Pan and Maun
This morning we head off for Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. En route we take a game drive throught the game rich plains of Nxai Pan. The name Maun is derived from the San word “maung”, which means “the place of short reeds”. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure, either relaxing next to the pool at the lodge or if you are keen for some excitement, why not book a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta.
