A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO DIVE WITH NILE
For most of the year, visibility in the Okavango Delta is
very poor but in late May the rains fall on the Angola
heights and cause a huge surge of cold clean water to flush
out the tannins and algae. In early June there is often a
secondary push further cleaning up the Delta. The water that
comes through is quite cold, 14º 17º Celsius. This coupled
with the cool ambient air temperature gives us the
right conditions to enable us to dive with the Nile Crocodiles.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will be picked up at Maun Airport and transported to
Swamp Stop Lodge in Sepope where we will spend our first
night. The next morning we will have breakfast and then
while we go croc hunting our baggage will be transported
to our Safari Campsite on Ikoga Island a.k.a. White Landover
Island, our operations centre for the next five nights. The
campsite will be equipped with individual one man dome tents
that are en-suite. We will have a mess tent, for all meals
as well as a charging tent for all your camera equipment.
Day one: Meet at Maun Airport in Botswana (flights not
included) and transfer by road to Swamp Stop Lodge in Sepope.
Relax and enjoy your first night in the Okavango.
Day two: After a hearty breakfast we will set off by
river on our first day of crocodile hunting. At the end of
the day we will head for our new camp at Ikoga Island.
Days three to six: Each day we will head out to look for
crocs in the river systems of the Okavango. Between dives we
will have an opportunity to enjoy many of the other
creatures that inhabit the okavango. Each evening we will
return to our safari camp on Ikoga Island.
Day Seven: After a final night's sleep at the island, we
will break camp and return you to Maun for your onward
