With family roots in Kenya, it became a continent I have naturally gravitated towards. I’ve traveled extensively around East and Southern, working with luxury camps, guides, and rangers for over eight years.

Day by Day Itinerary
- Day 1 - 3
Chitabe Camp, Okavango Delta
On arrival into Maun, you will be met and assisted through the check-in process for your short, Cessna Caravan flight into the Okavango Delta. Flying over the Delta is the perfect way to get an introduction to its unique and diverse landscape. The waters from Angola transform the Delta, and flying over it gives you an opportunity to see this at certain times of the year. On landing, you will be met by your safari guide from Chitabe and begin your game drive back to the camp. Freshen up at the luxury lodge and get accustomed to your new surroundings. Each room has a large ensuite bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower, a private veranda and a small but comfortable lounge area. You will spend three nights at Chitabe, enjoying two safari activities per day (early morning and late afternoon), whilst dining communally with fellow guests in different areas around the camp. This area has fantastic cat sigh-tings, including resident leopard and lion prides.
- Day 4 - 6
Vumbura Plains, Okavango Delta
Fly from Chitabe to your next destination, Vumbura Plains. This camp is famous for its located on the permanent lagoon, and as soon as you walk into the camp, the instantly feel like you on the water. The camp sits in the Vumbura concession, which is owned and operated by the local community in partnership with Wilderness. The benefits of being in a concession is that you have more flexibility when it comes to game drives, and with only a handful of camps in this concession, your safari here will have an element of exclusivity to it. The camp itself really is the utmost luxury and, although there are 14 large rooms, the camp is split into a north and south camp which makes them each smaller and more intimate. Each camp is self-sufficient, with its own team of qualified safari guides, chefs, housekeepers, barmen and a dedicated and friendly team of managers.
- Day 7 - 9
Dumatau, Okavango Delta
You will end your Okavango safari by flying over to Dumatau. Like Vumbura Plains, as soon as you walk into Dumatau, you will feel at home. The main area is designed so elegantly, with expansive views out to the river, and the staff will greet you with genuine, wholehearted smiles. The name ‘Dumatau’ means ‘roar of the lion’ and, with several resident lion prides in the area, it’s certainly a fitting name. Its location in the Linyanti Concession is fantastic, as you can cover huge areas of the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, as well as accessing the Linyanti River floodplain and the Savuti Channel. The game viewing in this area is amazing and there is ample opportunity to see some of the most desired sightings – like elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, wild dogs and more. The rooms each look out onto the river and are made up of a huge lounge and bedroom area, an ensuite bathroom (fit with an indoor and outdoor shower) and a huge private veranda, with its own plunge pool. This is the most unforgettable place to end your Okavango Delta safari.
