This itinerary is all about contrast. The arid expanse of the desert combined with the rich fertility of the Delta give you access to contrasting aspects of your own psyche. Both of these remote, wildlife-dense wilderness areas have pearls of awakening to share.

Kalahari Plains, Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana

Nights 1 – 4

Situated on an immense pan, Kalahari Plains lies in a remote corner of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the second largest game reserve in the world. A place famed for vast herds of antelope followed by abundant predators – including legendary black-maned Kalahari lions and feisty honey badgers. It also offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing in Africa. What we love about it are its massive vistas, uninterrupted night skies and stark beauty that create psychic space for your entire being to breathe into.

Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite

Each suit includes a sleep-out rooftop platform from which to enjoy the incredible night skies. Solar power provides electricity and hot water, and innovative insulated canvas walls and roofs keep the temperatures inside comfortable. This is in keeping with Wild Again’s ethos that as we do good for ourselves we can do good for the planet.

Respectful San Bushman experiences provide insights into a unique culture and allow us to step back in time, learning from the wisdom of a people who have thrived off this harsh landscape because they live in sync with nature’s rhythms.

Chitabe Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Nights 5 – 8

From the desert move to Chitabe in the south east of the Delta, which plays host to a breathtaking mosaic of wooded, wetland and grassland habitats. The area is famed for its incredible numbers and diversity of wildlife, in particular predators. One of the highlights of this camp is its setting amongst a variety of ancient, slow growing tree species and idyllic rooms are accessed from a raised wooden walkway that weaves between these enormous trees. This camp is ideal for guided tree meditations and forest bathing practices.

Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite

The mix of Okavango and Kalahari makes for an excellent home to an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn support the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah and wild dog. The density of game here gives us numerous opportunities to practice embodying the pure presence of wild animals.

The 12-metre lap pool and gym as well as numerous hidden nooks looking over the wilderness provide the ideal locations to practice yoga and meditation or to move your body mindfully between game drives.
