A 5 Rivers Safari promises to offer you the very best safari experience within the region and usually runs from 1st December to 31st of March; a period known as the ‘green season'. Although this is traditionally seen as the ‘low’ season, it is a very special time of the year to visit southern Africa.
The summer rains are a time of plenty in Africa; mammals are fat and healthy and for many species, it is a time to bring their young into the world. The bush is an emerald green, dotted with an abundance of flowers and migrant bird species arrive in their thousands. For the experienced African traveller and specialist photographer, this is the best time to visit southern Africa and capture the best of nature.

2 Nights Tau Pan
You will arrive into Maun and transferred by light aircraft bound for Tau Pan.
On arrival at Maun Airport ex your flight from Johannesburg, you will be met by a
Kwando/Moremi Air representative who will direct you onto your light aircraft for a departure out to Tau Pan.
Tau Pan Camp is situated inside the world famous Central Kalahari Game Reserve
(CKGR) right on the edge of the beautiful Tau Pan.
After the summer rains (October – March) –the CKGR completely transforms as the blue sky fills with huge clouds, and the plains and pans burst with sweet grasses. This is one of the best game viewing areas in Botswana at this time of year and not many people seem to be aware of this – so the visitors are few.
The CKGR is rich with wildlife such springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest in their thousands
and is quite a sight to behold! Predators abound with plentiful Lions – especially the
famous Kalahari black-maned Lion, Cheetah, Leopard and Jackals. Brown Hyenas and Wild Dogs are also found in the area.
All of the 8 tents have private viewing decks, inside and outside showers and fans. The main area has a swimming pool, curio shop and library. The views and wide open
space here is unbelievable! Activities on offer are game drives and nature
walks with the San trackers.
NO FISHING is permitted during the months of January and February.
2 nights at Kwara
After your morning activity on your last day, you will be transferred to the airport for your onward flight to Kwara - deep in the clear permanent waters of the Okavango Delta. Time at Kwara will reveal why the Delta, with all its remarkable plant, bird and animal life, is unique in this world.
The water experience, either fishing, on a mokoro or exploring the channels and rivers by boat, is spectacular! Kwara also offers game drives both off road and at night in their own private traverse area. The exclusive traverse is a feature of the Kwando Safaris experience – while Kwara camp adjoins the Moremi Game Reserve you only have to share your game experience with other Kwara guests.
After a morning activity and a leisurely breakfast on the day of departure from Kwara, you will board another light aircraft for your transfer to Lebala.
2 nights at Lebala
‘Lebala’ is hidden in the southern portion of the extensive Kwando wilderness of 232,000 hectares and the word means’ wide open spaces’. The area is a labyrinth of waterways, reed beds, islands and floodplains, bush, scrub and trees. Excellent general game abounds the broad plains creating spectacular scenery, adorned with herds of plains game and the ever attendant predators.
The Kwando concession is home to more elephant than the entire country of South Africa.
