Camping out in the Okavango wilderness means digging a bush toilet and going without a shower. For most travellers this is a small price to pay for such a gorgeous remote island location.
The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth any loss of sleep.
Purpose-built overland trucks allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. This means they don't have air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land.
This is a participatory camping trip, so team spirit is key. You'll be helping out with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

The Explore Southern Africa trip through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe was an amazing experience and one that I will remember forever. I experienced so much more than I expected. The okovanka delta was an extradianary experience and one that I think everyone should pare take in. Be prepared for the camping and ensure you have warm clothes.

It was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. I usually choose to travel independently and I didn’t expect group travel to be so enjoyable! It was totally hassle-free and the team made sure we’re always having the best experience. I loved spending time with fellow travellers too, learning about different cultures and sharing unforgettable moments. Lastly, the places we’ve visited were stunning! We spotted so many animals, met the friendly and kind locals as well as becoming hypnotised by the majesty of Victoria Falls. I recommend this trip to everyone looking for the adventure of a lifetime!
