    Maun
    Day 6

    Today  you  will  experience  a  new  way  of  travelling  –  to  go  into  the  Okavango  Delta  with  a  mokoro,  the  same  way  as  the  local  people  do.  You  will  be  transferred  to  the  ‘’polling’’  station  either  with  a  motorized  boat  or  a  4x4  vehicle  depending  on  the  water  levels  of  the  Delta.   

    A  mokoro  is  a  traditional  dug-out  canoe  that  seats  two  people.    The  mokoro  is  steered  by  a  ‘’poler”  standing  at  the  back,  manoeuvring  the  mokoro  downstream  with  a  pole,  very  much  like  the  gondoliers  in  Venice.     

    Once  you  are  comfortable  and  laid  back  in  your  mokoro,  the  slow  and  tranquil  journey  into  The  Delta  begins.  Gliding  along  on  the  quiet  water  you  will  have  an  unlimited  source  of  opportunities  to  take  exquisite  photos  of  your  surroundings.  The  duration  of  the  mokoro  trail  depends  on  the  time  of  year  and  water  levels  of  the  Delta.   You  will  stop  for  lunch  at  an  island  and  enjoy  a  nature  walk  of  a  few  hours. 

    Then  you  head  back  to  Maun,  again  in  your  mokoro  enjoying  the  last  hour  or  two  on  the  water  while  the  late  afternoon  sun  starts  heading  for  the  horizon.

    Ghanzi to Windhoek
    Day 8 Transfer by car

    Leave Ghanzi early for a long drive through the western parts of Botswana and across the border into Namibia, a country famous for sand, sea and sun. Enjoy dinner at one of Windhoek’s famous restaurants (at your own expense). If you have not yet tried game meat then this is a great opportunity to treat your taste buds with something new like kudu, ostrich, impala or even crocodile.

    This trip combines with other tours, and some tours will be finishing in Windhoek, while others will be continuing the next tour. Windhoek is the “getting on” and “getting off” hub for people who have booked shorter “legs” of your combo tour. You might lose some of your travel companions and new people might join. You might also have a change of vehicle and adventure crew (tour leader and driver.) Although it might sound a bit daunting, please be assured that your vehicle will be the same standard and your adventure crew are very experienced in dealing with these changes to make it as smooth as possible.

    All adventure crew are committed to giving the best possible service but because all have their own style, own special recipes and own passion with regards to culture, fauna and flora, geology etc. having a change of adventure crew will broaden your experience on the trip immensely.

    Windhoek
    Day 9

    Our  last  goodbye,  a  healthy  breakfast  and  the  end  of  another  incredible  tour.   

    Meals:          Breakfast    

    Book a day or two extra in Windhoek to make the most of your stay. This tiny capital town has loads of interesting things to offer.  One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall. Here you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance around the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.
