Expedition Details

Everybody has heard about the Okavango delta in Botswana, with its exclusive camps. But almost nobody knows the wild places in that region, isolated and not visited at all. This is what this expedition is about. Flying above the magnificent nature of the Okavango delta, playing with swamps, rivers, and the huge density of wildlife, while doing wild camping!

An amazing 12 days expedition to be lived in the heart of the African bush.

About Bush Flying

NKP Expeditions take you to remote African regions where very few travellers and pilots have ever been.

We adjust our routes on the fly, to take the best advantage of weather and conditions, which can change from day to day.

We are always ready to alter the plans, to take the best advantage of wildlife sightings and other one-of-a-kind opportunities.

  • Kubu island, giants baobabs in the middle of the giant dry salt pans.
  • Observe The Chobe forest and its huge herds of elephants.
  • Fly over the Okavango Delta swamps.
  • Live the ultimate African bush camping experience.
