Kujwana is a highly personalized horse safari in the remote western region of Botswana’s Okavango Delta and offers visitors the unique chance to explore an astonishing maze of papyrus lined waterways, meadows and woodland rich in birdlife and game. Run by PJ and Barney Bestelink – who have built up over 25 years worth of intimate knowledge of the ecosystems in the Delta – you can embark on a five, seven or ten night safari riding well trained horses and staying in luxury tented accommodation and tree houses. Save £525 per person on the seven-night safari or £750 on the ten-night safari.
Take a horse safari at Motswiri Camp between 16th and 30th September 2013 and despite it being peak season, holidaymakers will only pay mid season prices, generating a saving of £60 per person, per night.
Set on the edge of the Selinda Spillway, a safari at Motswiri gives you the opportunity to explore the Okavango Delta at its finest, whilst also enjoying the contrasting riverine forests to the east of the camp. There is a multitude of activities on offer making this perfect for non riders, from walking safaris, boat trips and 4 x 4 adventures, and the small number of guests makes it feel personal. Accommodation is in beautiful tents that each have their own veranda overlooking the Spillway where elephants regularly come to bathe and drink! Save £360 per person on a seven-night safari.
