Guests may also bring one slimline laptop bag.

This short charter hop flight departs Maun and travels to Makgadikgadi, Botswana. 

Passengers weighing over 110kg will need to purchase an additional seat.
Luggage restriction applicable to this flight: 20kg (44lb) per person, for both carry-on and checked luggage. Luggage dimensions must not exceed 25cm (10 inches) wide, 30 cm (12 inches) high and 62 cm (24 inches) long.  Your checked luggage needs to be soft-sided - no wheels / no spine, a duffel bag is recommended.

Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is located to the south-east of the Okavango Delta and surrounded by the Kalahari Desert. The name Makgadikgadi implies of a vast open lifeless land.

The pans are located in large areas to the south, east and north-eastern regions of the park. Widely believed to be one of the largest salt flats in the world, it is not always dry. Torrential rains fall from mid-November filling the dry, salty, clay crust with water and grass, which is retained until April or May. The vast open lifeless land now becomes a fascinating refuge for birds and animals. In the wet season, this reserve can offer good wildlife viewing, particularly when large herds of zebra and wildebeest begin their westward migration to the Boteti region. Other species include gemsbok, eland and red hartebeest, kudu, bushbuck, duiker, giraffe, springbok, steenbok, and even elephant, with all the accompanying predators, as well as the rare brown hyena.

Very little wildlife can exist at Makgadikgadi during an inhospitable dry season of strong hot winds and only salt water. During the dry winter months, the migrations head westwards to the Boteti River to scoop up any remaining water, but many desert-adapted creatures remain resident. These include aardwolf, African wildcat, caracal, genet, honey badger, spring hare, jackal, kudu, meerkats, yellow mongoose, porcupine, ground squirrel, steenbok, brown hyena, suricates and occasionally lion.

Accommodation: Leroo La Tau

Leroo La Tau is situated on the western bank of the Boteti River some 140 kilometres south east of Maun. The river’s eastern bank forms the boundary of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The Park stretches away from the banks of the Boteti River, through its interior of scrubland and grasslands. The western boundary supports mineral rich grass lands, which, along with the River supplies the much needed sustenance for the herds which inhabit the park.  As Leroo La Tau is built on cliffs over 10 metres high, guests can enjoy an extensive vista. The main reception and lounge area is also located on top of these cliffs; this raised vantage point ensures unsurpassed views of the river and the Makgadikgadi to the east.

Day 3: Makgadikgadi

In the early morning, you will meet up with the other guests from the lodge for your game drive in Makgadikgadi. The Makgadikgadi Pan is a series of large salt pans in the middle of the dry savannah of Northeastern Botswana. It is one of the largest salt flats in the world and interspersed between the pans are sand dunes, rocky islands and peninsulas, and desert terrain. The pan is all that remains of the formerly enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, which once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but dried up several thousand years ago. The Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve has an area of 3 900 sq. km and is the scene of large migrations. In the wet season, this reserve can offer good wildlife viewing, particularly when large herds of zebra and wildebeest begin their westward migration to the Boteti region. Other species that can be spotted here include gemsbok, eland and red hartebeest, as well as kudu, bushbuck, duiker, giraffe, springbok, steenbok, and even elephant, with all the accompanying predators, as well as the rare brown hyena. Your afternoon is guaranteed to be full of excitement, spectacular views and amazing experiences.

This afternoon you will meet up with the other guests from your lodge for a game drive in Makgadikgadi. An expert game tracking guide will escort you through the salt pan with the intent to spot intriguing wildlife during your excursion. From grazers to predators, each game drive is entirely different from the last, as nature refuses to operate on a loop. Be sure to bring your camera along!

Day 4: Makgadikgadi - Okavango

This flight departs from Makgadikgadi and travels to Okavango, Botswana.

Passengers weighing over 110kg will need to purchase an additional seat.
Luggage restriction applicable to this flight: 20kg (44lb) per person, for both carry-on and checked luggage. Luggage dimensions must not exceed 25cm (10 inches) wide, 30 cm (12 inches) high and 62 cm (24 inches) long.  Your checked luggage needs to be soft-sided - no wheels / no spine, a duffel bag is recommended. A small purse/backpack, is recommended as a carry-on, to keep your camera, passport, hat, sunblock or other items you need within easy reach.

Situated in the Kanana Concession, the focus of activities at Kanana varies with the rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta. The annual floods transform this dry camp into a true water experience and you may actually enjoy the breathtaking spectacle of the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised teak decks.

Activities included in your package allow you to enjoy morning and late afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. Spend more time in the bush with half and full day safari adventures with picnic lunches. Excellent area for birding with regular sightings of Pel’s Fishing Owl.

Alternatively you may explore the crystal clear waterways by mokoro or motorboat, and enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species found in the area. Glass-bottomed Mokoro’s (canoes) enable you to view the underwater world of the delta. Birding is spectacular, and Kanana hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity, a Kanana highlight which converts all visitors to avid 'twitchers' at first sight. 

One of the only places where you can enjoy a guided bush walk, Kanana's location allows you to explore the delta on foot accompanied by expertly trained and armed guides. You can also enjoy fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish (March through to December and basic equipment supplied).

Accommodation: Kanana Camp

Located in the private Kanana concession in the south-western Okavango Delta overlooking the Xudum River is relaxed Kanana Camp. The eight deluxe luxury style tents are built on stilts to insure a good view of the floodplains for all guests. The common facilities of the camps are also built up on stilts overlooking these floodplains. There is a sandy fire pit and jetty, and a short walk from there leads you to a lovely swimming pool and deck. Kanana Camp is built among spectacular shade trees of ebony, knob thorn acacia, and the sausage tree. Protected by a mix of jackal berry, acacia and sausage trees, Kanana is surrounded by a necklace of islands dotted with palm, fig, ebony and knobthorns and home to a myriad of birds, plants and animals.

Day 5: Okavango

The Okavango Delta is of course flooded for much of the year and when it is, you can experience serene silence at the gentle pace of a poled mokoro excursion along the narrow Delta channels. Just sit back and relax as they glide through lily ponds on local dugout canoes while they get eye to eye with a buffalo as it laps water from the river, watch crocodiles sunbathe on the banks or cruise past a pod of hippos as they lie in a pool. Fish eagles, frogs and fabulous lilies form much of this experience, but more frequently it is the quietness and gentle pace that makes its impression on you after a mokoro morning.

After a leisurely lunch and perhaps a siesta, head out on an afternoon game drive, which in the Okavango are typically done at around 4pm when the wildlife is most active. They usually last for a few hours and you will be back at the lodge in time for dinner. This activity is shared with other guests of the lodge in the lodge's 4x4 vehicles.

You'll have the opportunity to see animals up close when expert guides accompany you on morning and evening game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles. The park also boasts a diversity of landscape with desert, dry savannah, lagoon and swamps in close proximity – cheetah, crocodile and elephant can also be seen on a game drive.

Day 8: Linyanti

The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is considered one of the few remaining "untouched" game viewing gems of Africa. This absolutely superb safari area boasts similar characteristics as the nearby Okavango in terms of geographical trademarks and of course, wildlife.  The truly gorgeous waterways and lagoons are ideal for attracting some of Africa's Big 5 species amongst the thousands of birds whom inhabit these lands.  During the dry season, June to October, a variety of game including elephants, buffaloes, lions and wild dogs gather around the various watering holes and rivers in large numbers.  During the green season, November to May, the game extends their reach further throughout the reserve into the blooming bush.  Equally exciting morning or evening game drives through the reserve will provide an almost unreal game viewing experience during both the dry and wet seasons.

  • Angelia M — June 22, 2019 — Africa

    My Kenya trip was seriously the best trip of my life, and I absolutely loved every second of it! It was my dream vacation and the reality far exceeded the dream. Catherine, my trip consultant, answered all of my many questions and made sure everything went super smoothly. Daniel, my guide, was so fun, interesting, and informative. He went out of his way to make sure my trip was special. I really can't put into words how much I loved it other than I'm already thinking about another trip to Africa. I will definitely be using Kensington Tours again!

  • Chris S — May 17, 2019 — Africa

    Our guide Elisha was absolutely incredible! He was friendly, helpful, funny, and remarkably knowledgeable about the area, the animals, and especially the birds! The accommodations were excellent and the staff at those places was wonderful. The Kubu Kubu tent camp in Serengeti was particularly special, and we felt truly appreciated and pampered by the staff. With their smiling help, we even learned some Swahili! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

  • Paul E — May 01, 2019 — Africa

    We had no idea what to expect on this trip but exceeded even our wildest imagination. Daniel, with Kensington, laid out a wonderful plan. The upfront quality and detail on the proposal really sold us. The guides and local support crews on the trip, were on time, personable, and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Shamiel with Ilios Travel in Cape Town. He was joy and clearly loved sharing Cape Town with us.

  • Thomas S — June 14, 2019 — Africa

    Karen Johnson was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. Karen was readily available during the planning process and took the time to talk with and listen to us to find out about our wants and needs and ultimately designed our perfect vacation. We can not speak highly enough about her abilities.

  • Michael S — June 13, 2019 — Africa

    The trip was the best thing we have ever done. The people we dealt with were professional and made sure every part of our trip was trouble free.

  • Raymond D — March 22, 2019 — Africa

    The guides were friendly and very accommodating throughout my trip. One of the guides took me to the oldest tea house as a bonus on my tour. It was great being with the people and enjoying a cup of tea. My driver invited me to have Turkish coffee which was a very nice touch to my trip. The accommodations were phenomenal, being near the pyramids was outside of this world. The Kempinski Nile Hotel Garden City Cairo was a wonderful hotel as well. Gesa was great to work with! She was so nice and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. Especially during for the first part of my trip which had nothing to do with my tours with Kensington Tours. She planned everything out perfectly on my trip.

  • Donna M — June 02, 2019 — Africa

    The Kensington Kenya and Tanzania African Safari itinerary and experience exceeded all expectations. From the moment we were met at the airport, we were completely cared for. Our Destination Expert, Erin Cotton, even checked in on us during the trip. Our guides were excellent; Albert and Steve were exceptionally knowledgeable, organized and considerate. The accommodations were all fantastic with friendly staff, comfortable rooms for the family, and great food. Although the balloon trip over the Mara River was a highlight, each game drive was a memorable adventure as or guides toured Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and the Masai Mara. We got to spend some time in the local villages and dine with some of the other tourists in the middle of the bush and on a spectacular cliff overlooking the plains of Kenya and Tanzania. Most of all, every morning we looked forward to spending time with our guides searching for animals and learning more about the whole ecosystem.

  • Catherine L — May 05, 2019 — Africa

    Everything was absolutely wonderful - from the planning to the execution. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely work with Kensington on my next trip! (I'm headed to Hong Kong this December and think I should probably do some exploring while I'm there!)

  • Jennifer W — December 04, 2018 — Africa

    Our trip was amazing! The accommodations were lovely. Our safari guide made the experience memorable! Our only job was to relax and enjoy. The guide for our day in Sawato and to visit the Apartheid museum was extremely knowledgeable. This is our second trip with Kensington Tours. We will definitely use again.

  • Tanya R — February 20, 2019 — Africa

    We left everything to our tour rep, Louise Baer. She did a fantastic job. We had no expectations at all but were absolutely overwhelmed with our accommodations. We were treated so well by everyone. It was an unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Our drivers were fantastic. I felt so safe. Brilliant holiday. Thank you, Kensington!
