Private Wilderness Experience in Botswana
Experience the incredible landscape of the breathtaking Okavango Delta, observe wild animals in their natural habitat and broaden your personal horizon in an unparalleled way.
Arrival and orientation in Botswana
First of all, you fly to Maun Airport. Your flight needs to arrive on the morning of the first tour day. Together with the other participants you will be picked up by Daniel and driven to Camp Kwapa.
There we will meet our fantastic co-organiser and facilitator Alan McSmith. With his years of experience and wealth of knowledge, he always provides unique experiences in the African wilderness.
Private Wilderness Experience with Natucate
Our Private Wilderness Experience is designed to provide you with an ideal combination of unique landscapes, fascinating wildlife sightings and in-depth learning experiences in nature.
A typical day during the tour looks like this: Every morning you will receive a hearty breakfast and then set off for the first excursion of the day. On foot or in an open game drive vehicle, your guide will take you and your group deep into the bush of the spectacular Kwapa region.
Together with Daniel he will acquaint you with the secrets of the flora and fauna of the delta, provide you with exciting background knowledge about the animals and plants you spot, introduce you to the art of tracking and discuss essential topics of nature and species conservation.
Around noon, when the hottest time of the day slowly sets in, you make your way back to camp, enjoy lunch together and – after a short siesta – go back into wilderness to collect more unforgettable wildlife memories. At sunset you return to Camp Kwapa and spend a relaxed evening gathering around the campfire.
Accommodation in Kwapa
During your time in Botswana you and your group live in Camp Kwapa, located at the heart of the magnificent Okavango Delta. Here you and another participant of the tour share a safari tent with access to its bush bathroom: under the open sky and equipped with a small sink, toilet and bucket shower. Every day you will be provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Water, coffee, tea and snacks are also available at all times.
Leisure time during the Wilderness Experience
You and your group spend most of the day exploring the African wilderness through game drives and walks. After you got back to camp for lunch, you can relax during the siesta: Read a book, relax in camp or sit down with the other participants to share the day's experiences. In the evening there is also time for your own activities.

End of the Private Wilderness Experience
“Everyone has put a lot of personal effort into making the most of our experience. Honest enthusiasm from the team. Very warm-hearted. Simply great.”
“I especially remember the great atmosphere of sharing these unique experiences with others and the moments when I held my breath and wondered if this was all a dream or reality.”
“I really loved being in the wild! The soundscape in the day and particularly at night is just incredible – everyone should experience or rather be able to listen to that at least once in a lifetime.”
“This Private Wilderness Experience was actually my first “group tour”. It was fantastic.”
Martin and Max spent two weeks on a Private Wilderness Experience in South Africa. Accompanied by Daniel, they discovered the wild nature of Kruger National Park. Here you can find some impressions of their outdoor adventure:
1. Camp Kwapa
During your wilderness adventure you will enjoy Botswana’s stunning nature and experience the beauty of the private nature reserve south of the Okavango Delta that camp Kwapa is situated in. Every year the Okavango River floods wide areas of the Kalahari Desert and transforms the dry region into an oasis of lush vegetation and unique biodiversity. The region gives visitors the opportunity to observe the manifold fauna and to spot the “Big Five” as well as other animals like cheetahs, wild dogs, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, zebras, wart hogs or impalas. On an area of about 20,000 km² the Okavango River transforms the desert into an exceptional landscape with several lagoons, lakes and swamps. Besides those aqueous habitats also savanna, mopane forests as well as grass-, swamp- and marshlands dominate the landscape of the region.
2. Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is without doubt one of the most spectacular natural sites in Southern Africa, if not in the entire world. Covering more than 20,000 km², the fertile oasis in the northwestern part of the country is the largest inland delta of our planet. The mighty UNESCO World Heritage Site is fed by the Okavango River, which once a year floods down from the highlands of Angola into an endless labyrinth of river courses, islands and lagoons. With a visit to the Delta, one of the last natural paradises on earth awaits you, whose awe-inspiring biodiversity will amaze every visitor.
