Christmas at Kujwana

You are cordially invited to Christmas at Kujwana.

For those of you who enjoyed Friday’s Facebook video post showing recent footage from Kujwana, we still have some spaces left on a very special Christmas Safari.

Can you think of a better way to spend Christmas than Botswana’s magical Okavango Delta? Here’s how your festive season might unfold…

Getting up close to elephant is always pretty exciting

Christmas morning will begin with a gentle wake-up call as freshly made tea or coffee is brought to your tent. Refreshed with a light breakfast, head out for a morning ride across the flood plains.

This could be your view on Christmas morning

Pause in the shade to watch elephant or buffalo and then speed away across the delta as your horse shows you what he is made of. Steady up again and as your heartbeat begins to go back to normal, gaze as herds of lechwe or giraffe move through the open spaces.

Exhilarating canters across the plains

After an exciting few hours on horseback it is time to relax a while, as a delicious champagne brunch is served to you out in the bush.

In the afternoon, head out again on horseback in search of the delta’s rich wildlife, or perhaps go for a mokoro ride, take a game drive or guided walk to see things from a different perspective.

Return to camp in time for sun-downers and a very special Christmas dinner.

Your next adventure might take you to Moklowane Camp for a few days. A full-day ride takes you to a contrasting part of the delta where palm-trees are all around and baboons bounce in the branches above your tree house.

Back at Kujwana camp, on New Year’s Eve, gather around the dining table to re-count the adventures of the day.

You are sure to see plenty of game from horseback

Later, it is time for a night drive with your guide to see if you can spot some of the delta’s nocturnal animals.

See in the New Year back at camp….listening to the sounds of the African bush drifting across the warm evening air as you star-gaze into a clear night sky.
