Tour Overview

Led by legendary master filmmaker and wildlife photographer Greg Nelson, this expedition immerses our travellers in the astonishing biosphere of the Okavango Delta, exploring bush, desert and water environments. Greg is an internationally renowned National Geographic cameraman and, for the duration of the expedition, Greg will assist you in creating your book, photo essay or film of your experience. Limited to just 12 people, we begin our explorations with a spectacular private charter flying low over the Delta before landing at Mopiri Camp on the banks of Weboro Lagoon. Hidden away on the North-West side of the Delta, this exclusive permanent camp offers the perfect water camp experience. After three nights, we then fly eastwards to our ultra-luxe mobile tented bush camp in the wildlife-rich Khwai River region, where we spend five full days continuing our quest to follow and photograph the game, culminating in a one hour ‘doors-off’ helicopter filming flight out from camp. We then venture to our remote desert camp, Meno A Kwena for three nights, to explore where the Delta meets Desert, including one night out under the stars on the spectacular salt pans of Makgadikgadi. In addition to our set departures, this expedition has the option of private departures, ideal for groups of friends and families, offering a flexible range of dates, durations and inclusions.

  Mopiri Camp


Meals Included:

  Dinner


On arrival at Maun International Airport, you shall be met by an Arcadia Expeditions representative and transferred to Mopiri Camp via Cessna Caravan on private charter. Set on the western bank of the vast and idyllic Weboro Lagoon, Mopiri’s luxury tented rooms are nestled between palm trees and under large shady figs and all have panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Long winding boardwalks connect the suites with the main area; the pool and the jetty give you an opportunity to explore the surroundings from an elevated position.


This evening we come together for sundowners and our expedition briefing with Arcadia Storyteller Greg Nelson. Greg has worked for some of the world’s leading international media outlets and is the perfect companion to accompany our game viewing and pass on tips on how to best compose the perfect wildlife photograph or video.


We then sit down to enjoy a gourmet three-course meal freshly prepared by Mopiri’s chefs.

Still on different time zones, our travellers have the option to rise to greet the dawn with a continental breakfast in the main dining room, or sleep off the jetlag and rise later for a full English breakfast. After breakfast we meet with Greg to talk gear, strategy and technique before we head out onto the water to traverse the papyrus channels in search of game – hippopotamus, elephants and Sitatunga (amphibious antelope) in their natural habitat. You’ll spend about an hour and a half exploring the channels before moving on to some large islands. Here you have the choice of walking, or paddling in a Mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) before tucking into a well-deserved brunch. We then jump back on the boats to continue our photographic safari. Those who would like a break from looking down the lens, can try to hook a tiger fish at one of the prime fishing holes.

We return to camp in mid-afternoon for a siesta and a book or a leisurely walk on the island.

We come back together on the main deck for sundowners to photograph the lagoon through Golden Hour, before sitting down to dinner.

After a leisurely morning sleep in, enjoy a full English breakfast or, for those who choose to rise early, head out with Greg for some early photographic opportunities before breakfast. Lunch will be served at one of several locations depending on the game. In the afternoon, guests will return to camp and continue aboard the Osprey, Mopiri’s double-storey barge, to enjoy sundowners on the water. We return to camp through the dusk for hot showers, before joining everyone around the fire for predinner drinks followed by a gourmet dinner.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


After a leisurely morning, we enjoy breakfast before taking to the air once more in our privately chartered Cessna Caravan and fly eastwards across the Delta to Mbudi Tented Camp in Khwai – the low-level flying affording spectacular views of the Delta. Set in the North-Eastern part of the Okavango, Khwai is a community run concession based along the northern shore of the River Khwai. It sits between the Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park and is a very beautiful area that is popular with those in the know.

Lunch will be served in camp before heading out in search of game. The camp’s guides will already have been updated by radio about any game close to camp and so hopefully put us right on to the very best photo opportunities. As the afternoon draws towards evening, we find an idyllic place for sundowners, before heading back to camp, where you will find your comfortable private classic tent with bedding and bathroom facilities (hot shower and flush toilet). This will be our base for the next five full days from which to explore and photograph wildlife interactions and behaviour in Khwai and Moremi. We come together around the fire to remember the day and share stories before being treated to our Mbudi welcome dinner – a sumptuous sit-down three-course meal by the campfire.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning you are awakened just before dawn with a steaming cup of tea, before heading off towards the rising sun in search of game. Khwai is an area that always conjures something up for anyone who visits, and being here on safari, with the ability to operate our own timetable with Greg and our private guides either by vehicle, day or night, or on foot, will give you an experience you will never forget. This is the heart of our photographic safari with Greg. We have intentionally planned for six nights / five full days in camp to enable us to have the time to locate and then, should you choose so, ‘stay on’ the game enabling us to observe and photograph their behaviour over hours, even days.

Due to the varying habitats found throughout Khwai, from riverine woodland to open savannah, from mopane scrub to leadwood thickets, there is an immense diversity of flora and fauna to be found here. Due to the large numbers of impala found in Khwai, the leopard and wild dog populations are excellent, and rarely does a safari in the area not encounter at least one of theses on a game-drive. Occasionally there are roan and sable antelope that come down through the mopane woodland towards the river for a drink.

After the early game drive, we return to camp for a sumptuous breakfast, there’s a chance to relax and read in camp and watch the animals pass by (and occasionally through) camp. Following lunch, we head out to explore once more with our passionate Storyteller Greg Nelson on hand to advise and help you seek out and film the Delta’s incredible wildlife. It’s not only Greg, but our whole team, that are steeped in knowledge of the bush and animal behaviour – so no matter who you are with, you will gain incredible insight from their collective experience and knowledge of the Delta.

Each evening, the team chooses an idyllic spot to stop for sundowners before we return to camp for hot showers. On occasion, an expert academic or scientist will join us for dinner in camp to enlighten us on projects being undertaken in the Delta.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


At breakfast around the fire, the sounds of the previous night and the tracks of the various animals that may have passed through the camp can be used as clues in planning the day’s exploration of the surrounding bush; and by night the day’s sightings can be recollected with a drink by the fire under the starry African sky.

Set up exclusively for our clients, our mobile safari is a unique and intimate way for our group to be in a luxury camp, with furnished tents, en-suite bathrooms, a private chef, camp staff and vehicles curated just for us. Lunch in the mess tent (typically buffet-style) and dinner under the stars (typically three courses) are both served by experienced and friendly camp staff. A fully stocked bar is included and there are always cold drinks, tea, coffee and drinking water available throughout the day.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Today we head out on a full day journey to experience Moremi Game Reserve. Situated in the central and eastern areas of the Okavango, this remarkable area includes the Moremi Tongue and chief’s island, boasting one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems on the continent.

This makes for spectacular game viewing and bird watching, including all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered.

As you become one with the environment of the Delta, it’s impossible not become impassioned by the threats that face it. As a direct result of Covid-19, incidents of poaching of Elephants and Rhino are on the rise in the Delta – the lack of tourist numbers has emboldened the poachers. To further explore the future of wildlife in the Delta, joining us in camp for dinner will be one of the team members from a leading wildlife foundation.

Camp life is always fluid, here the game decides what the morning or the afternoon has in store. If we have been following a leopard and her cubs for two days, some guests may choose to continue to record their behaviour. Others may wish to head out in the opposite direction to view the large heard of elephants that passed close to camp the night before. Early each morning, coffee, cereals and a continental breakfast are ready and waiting before a sunrise safari followed by rest or siesta at the camp.

One of the great pleasures of being in camp for five days is that you can afford ‘not’ to go on safari. Unlike a lodge, the game trails are unimpeded by permanent structures and so the animals continue along their familiar paths – both day and night. It is a serene and often unforgettable experience to simply spend the day in the shade at camp and see what comes along! At night, it’s not unusual for a leopard or a lion kill to take place in close proximity to camp – the sounds of these great predators and then the squabbling of scavenges can continue for much of the night.

As the shadow begin to draw, we return to camp after our afternoon safari, where another three-course sit-down dinner is conjured up from the campfire by our chef.

The last full day in camp is a real highlight. After days filming wildlife from the ground and the water, we get the opportunity to film and photograph the Okavango from the air. Four-seater Robinson R44 Helicopters (or similar) will join us in camp to take guests on a photogenic air safari low over the Delta. The doors of the helicopters will be removed to enable real freedom of movement to film, with three guests per helicopter ensuring a prime filming platform for everyone. The pilot will search out specific game where possible as we travel out across web of wetlands as they intersect with the savanna and forested plains.

After a lunch and a siesta, we head out for the final afternoon safari and sundowners before returning to camp and a special dinner out under the stars.

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


After breakfast in camp, we say goodbye to the team at Mbudi Camp and make our way on safari towards Maun. Upon arrival into Maun, we take a little time to learn of the some of the social issues confronting the people of the Okavango as we visit Bana ba letsatsi, a charity in Maun set up to support and empower vulnerable and orphaned children.

After lunch in Maun, we drive east into the desert to Meno A Kwena. A hidden gem perched on a rocky clifftop above the Boteti River, the camp looks out across the vast Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, where you are immersed in a completely different environment to the wetlands and islands of the Delta. It’s here where the floods of the Delta spread out on to the salt pans and disappear – ‘the river that never finds the sea’. Water is life, and, as the Boteti River is the only permanent water source in the area, it attracts a rich array of resident game and a procession of migratory wanderers.

The camp was originally used by Southern Africa’s legendary explorers, and although the owners have added a few little touches and quirks here and there, it’s refreshingly and stylishly simple. The real treat at Meno is the connection with nature; when an elephant provides your alarm call in the morning, and you can game view straight from your private veranda – nothing else really matters.

From their lofty position, the tents look down on a menagerie of animals at the water below (season dependent), from herds of majestic elephant, to dazzles of nomadic zebra – all you need to do is sit back, and take it all in.

  Desert Camp, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Meno a Kwena isn’t a hyper-luxurious camp, but that’s why everyone who stays there loves it! Each tent is classically styled, with a few eccentricities thrown in here and there; think locally woven fabrics mixed with colonial-style furniture, and simple fittings brightened by snippets of color. All have fully equipped ensuite bathrooms.

The canvas lounge and dining tents are piled high with books and trinkets, and decorated with old-world artefacts, and even a sculpted crocodile. And it’s not there for no reason – Meno a Kwena literally translates as “teeth of the crocodile.” Keep an eye on the river below from a comfy chair in the living area or plunge into the Flintstone-esque rocky swimming pool and watch the animals doing the same below you.

After a leisurely breakfast we head out into the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park where baobabs stand like sentinels above the shimmering expanses of crusted salt. This is the desert in its most iconic state, and a jaw-droppingly magical sight. We travel out to the edge of Ntwetwe Pan, photographing along the way, with its endless landscapes dotted with umbrella acacias and clumps of mopane woodland to a basic fly camp setup in the pans by Meno, specially prepared just for us.

We then have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of camping on the pans themselves. After sundowners and a meal cooked on the campfire, you can snuggle up in warm and cosy swags and fall asleep under an impossibly perfect view of the heavens.

This morning, our quest is to find and photograph the resident meerkats of Makgadikgadi, who are busy preparing for their day ahead.

We return to Meno a Kwena for lunch, and spend the rest of the day lounging on the day bed or by the swimming pool whilst observing the wildlife action unfolding below. This is a great opportunity to look out for the zebra migration, Southern Africa’s largest mammal migration. At night, retreat to the dining table for a feast of flavour, accompanied by flickering lanterns and stories of old. Joining us for dinner in camp will be a local historian to share their insights on the early exploration of the Delta.

After a final camp breakfast, your last morning on the Delta is spent relaxing through the morning before making your way back to Maun for your onward journey around midday.

We chose Arcadia Expeditions for our dream holiday to Namibia and Botswana as it met so many of our requirements.

Having no previous exposure to these countries, it was a pleasure and a relief to embark on a fully organised expedition, with no logistics at all to worry about.

The group we travelled with was an intimate group of 11, all like-minded people, who became like family as time went on.

The itinerary was expertly designed to access many remote destinations that we had not been able to source through any other agency, and as such, we rarely came into contact with other tourists as we enjoyed unique experiences such as living/camping with the San people of the northern Kalahari Desert, and tracking desert elephants on the edge of the Skeleton Coast.

The trip was a perfect balance of glamping and hotel accommodation – and, importantly to us, we engaged with local communities and left a minimal footprint as we went.

Our expedition leader, David Adams, was extraordinarily well informed and familiar with the territory both from a geographic and a cultural point of view.

His depth of knowledge and ability to tell the story of the land and its people, its sights and history made for a truly authentic adventure.

The connections we made and the opportunities we were privileged to enjoy will not be forgotten – we couldn’t have hoped for more! less....

Last May I chose to travel to Botswana with Arcadia Expeditions.

This was quite simply one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I have travelled for many years to many places, but this was the best trip I have ever been on.

The group was small (only 11 people) which I liked, but it was the unique itinerary Arcadia had put together that really made the expedition so rewarding.

We felt fully immersed in these countries, meeting an incredible diversity of people, seeing unbelievable landscapes and having remarkable interactions with the animals.

We rarely saw other tourists, which added to the authenticity of the trip.

We were a low impact travel group engaging with local communities, not just seeing sights (which were something to behold), but learning about them at a deeper, more interactive level.

It’s Arcadia’s emphasis on storytelling, which was followed throughout our trip, that made the big difference for me.

If you are looking to have a unique travel experience, you could not go past Arcadia, I am counting the days to my next adventure with them.
