After a chance for a last morning game drive and breakfast you will be transferred to the Khwai airstrip for your flight to the Kiri airstrip. On arrival you will be met by your guide and transfer to Kiri Camp for three nights. You will be accommodated in one of the family suites that offer two separate, but connected bedrooms each with en suite facilities.
Kiri Camp is named after the Kiri channel which flows passed the island on which the camp is situated, based on a private concession in one of the more remote areas in the delta, previously inaccessible. The camp is raised on wooden decks to give one a view of the mighty Kiri floodplains which stretch out in front of the camp. The luxury tents are designed to incorporate the surrounding ebony forest under which the camp is situated. The use of wood, canvas and reeds are primary to the architecture of this stunning camp.
Kiri Camp offers a combination of both game drives and water activities. A motorboat ride during peak flood times promises to enthrall you and captivate you, with the chance of seeing iconic wildlife from the river. Glide on quiet mokoro’s through the water lilies and view wildlife from below as you sail along at water level height. The wildlife in the Kiri area is diverse and plentiful, renown for its lion and buffalo interactions and rare wild dog numbers.
Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp. They usually last about three hours each and are conducted along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering one a chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.
Walking safaris are also conducted generally in the morning with armed guides. The walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking is weather dependent, or dependent on the condition of the terrain.
This is a dug out canoe poled by an experienced poler in the shallower waters of the Okavango. It is a great way to see the waterways and is tranquil and quiet. These excursions take place in the mornings or longer day trips can be arranged. Explore the islands around camp and come back rested and rejuvenated.
Motorized Boat Rides
Taking a water safari by boat offers up a completely different world. Based at water level you will see creatures and details that you would otherwise miss from the land.
Please note water activities are subject to sufficient water levels in the Delta.
