Option 2: transfer straight from the airport to the campsite
You can land in Maun on the day the safari starts and dive into the bush straight away! If you wish to do so, we can assist you to organise a transfer to the community campsite located outside Moremi Game Reserve (extra charges apply).
The safari starts in Maun at 08:30 am from where you will be transferred to the edge of the Delta to meet your Bush Ways team and start your exploration of Botswana’s fantastic wilderness. After a relaxing lunch overlooking the Santantadibe floodplain, you will proceed through quaint villages renowned for their talented basket weavers. Your first night will be spent in a concession located outside Moremi Game Reserve.

Game drives in the early morning as the sun rises and in the late afternoon as the sun sets will be the norm. After your morning game drives, you will return to camp for lunch and a siesta.
