Safari chic in Botswana’s bush camps - Duba Plains, Mombo, Gomoti and Qorokwe

By Lisa Grainger - 15th September 2018

I feel as though I’m in an opening sequence in David Attenborough’s Planet Earth. I’m in a 12-seat Cessna, soaring over a vast watery wilderness that has been set aside exclusively for wildlife. There aren’t many holidays in which the journey is as thrilling as the destination. A flying safari around the Okavango Delta, though, is one of them. The pilot has agreed to fly just a few hundred feet above the ground and, only ten minutes after taking off from the dusty little town of Maun, I can’t see a road anywhere. Below, little whirlwinds of terracotta dust skud across dry patches of earth. A herd of elephants ambles through an open stretch of grassland. And then, suddenly, as far as the eye can see, lies the great Okavango Delta: 10,000 square miles of reedbeds and silvery pools, winding rivers and papyrus swamps, dotted by an occasional rust-coloured island or hillock of thick trees. The Explorations Company (01367 850566, explorationscompany. com) can organise two nights each at Duba Plains, Mombo, Gomoti and Qorokwe from £16,600pp, including activities, full-board accommodation and internal flights between camps, but excluding international flights.
