At Chief's Camp you can enjoy a fusion of African and Western cuisine, superbly blended into a Pan-African style of cooking. Emerge into a cocoon of comfort in your private suite that offers a choice between an indoor and outdoor shower and delivers you onto a horizon of views from the private game-viewing decks.
Your afternoon game activity will take you out on a traditional canoe, called a mokoro, into the waterways of the Okavango Delta. Admire nature as you glide through the papyrus-fringed channels caused by the resident hippos of the Delta. Arm yourself with a camera and binoculars and may be rewarded with birds in a rainbow of colour and indigenous wildlife found exclusively in the Delta.
Alternatively, game drives in the custom-built open 4x4 vehicle in the Mombo area, an area renowned for its abundance of wildlife. This is an ideal activity should you be a keen bird watcher, wildlife photographer or first time visitor to the Okavango Delta.
The spa offers a wide range of treatments, some of which are specially designed in cooperation with the best ingredients found in Africa. The Thalgo range of products offers French marine-based treatments options to alleviate the skin and deliver you to a restored state.
Days 3 & 4: Okavango Delta
Transfer from the airstrip in Moremi to an Okavango airstrip aboard a charter flight. You will be met by your ranger at the airstrip and transferred to Stanley's Camp in an open 4x4 vehicle. Hide out in your private luxury safari tent as you get lost in an endless untamed horizon of views from your balcony. Walk out into an amphitheater of indigenous ebony and sausage trees as you explore the southern tip of Chief's Island.
Game viewing in the area is remarkable with excellent numbers of predators and plains-game on offer. Game drives at Stanley's are conducted in custom-built open vehicles that offer unfiltered views of the zebra, giraffe, buffalo and perhaps even a leopard roaming around the area. Professional guides accompany the game drives as well as the walking safaris to assist in sightings of hidden gems and to answer any questions. Evening game drives provide possible sightings of nocturnal game such as the bush baby.
Transform to local tradition as you embark on a mokoro excursion into the wetland oasis, providing you with a close-up view of the reed-clinging frogs. Observe the fish eagles as they hover above the water, in seek of their next victims under the lily-covered waters. Sightings of crocodiles, buffalos and elephants are also something to look forward to.
A ton of magic will be added to your experience as you see the bush from an elephants-eye view. Take part in this once-in-a-lifetime activity as you accompany three orphaned elephants on their walk through the wild. This elephant interaction activity ends with a bush lunch with the grey giants.
Spend hours engulfed in a harmonizing hammock on a private wooden deck or indulge in a delicious meal during a water lunch while seated under an umbrella with your feet resting in the shallow waters of the tranquil river.
Days 5 & 6: Chobe National Park
You will board a flight out of the Delta from a bush airstrip to Kasane Airport where a lodge representative will meet and collect you for a road transfer to Chobe Chilwero Lodge in the Chobe National Park. Be welcomed into your private sanctuary as you enjoy the silence of a luxury cottage away from communication services. With telephones and televisions available solely at the main lodge, you can decide when to step out of your nest of seclusion. Dive deeper into luxury as you refresh in an outdoor shower or laze in a large sunken bath.
Find pleasure in a private treetop treatment room as you indulge in his-and-hers spa treatments, from classic facials to a specialized Soul of Africa Conditioning Body Massage. Using only high quality products from the organic Africology and Thalgo ranges, exceptional results await. The spa bath, plunge pool and general relaxation area will soothe you into or out of a day of adventure in a cloud of satisfaction.
Head out into the bush on a safari activity that is tailored to suit your personal requirements. Start your day in an open 4x4 vehicles alongside a knowledgeable guide as you spot an elephant, buffalo or puku. Take your game-viewing a step further as you hop aboard a small fishing boat in search of bream and tiger fish on a catch-and-release fishing trip. Cruising along the waterways, you are in a prime position to spot herds of famous Chobe buffalos and elephants that wander around on the floodplains.
For those who are hungry for adventure, enquire about the day trips to the Victoria Falls, where a sprinkle of magic will be added to your stay. This remarkable natural wonder will provide a picture more perfect than any other.
Enjoy an optional road trip to the Falls, as you are educated about the area's historical highlights by your guide.
The surreal sundowner cruise affords views of the unique sitatunga, an antelope whose splayed feet allows for it to navigate through the swampy areas of the Delta. Sip on sundowner cocktails as you are cradled into a state of relaxation. Possible sightings of a lion or leopard on an evening game drive would be the perfect conclusion to a day spent adoring the African beauty.
