Plains Adventure Rally Activities
Its an adventure for individuals, couples, friends, or the whole family. Part of the adventure takes you on an unpredictable journey of incredible activities.
Starting off with a fire and light show onto an unforgettable game drive. Baobab treks around ghost rivers and ancient stories of the bushman. Visit the Meerkats and the Ntwetwe Pan and then calm it all down around the camp fire with live music.
A fire and light show by The Magic Bean Theatre Company from Maun. It will mark the start of the adventure rally.
Sit around the bar and view the amazing river in full flood while the birdlife tend to their nesting chores.
Cross the flooding Boteti River on a a ferry at Khumaga on our first day of adventure touring and into the fantastic Makgadikgadi National Parks to experience the migrating wildlife.
Please note that parks fees and ferry fees are separate to this rally.
Join a human-tolerant meerkat family as they go about their daily business. If you’re really lucky and they like you, they may even rub up against your body, which is an amazing experience that the kids will certainly love.
If you stay in a lodge at Planet Baobab this is one of the activities offered in the package. Follow on of their experienced guides on your bike (or one from the lodge), to all the different, significant baobabs in the area and learn their ancient stories. You will even follow an ery ghost river.
Take a self-drive/ride trip down to Nwetwe Pan and experience the Makgadikgadi and its vastness, whilst staying at Planet Baobab.
You can do this on arrival or perhaps before you head out the next day.
Something to set the ambience and start the story telling of adventures had so far. Camp fires will be lit with a bit of laid-back live music.
A breather so to speak, a moment to just be in the wild; amongst ancient ancestors.
We have arranged with the “biker-friendly” owner of Leopard Plains for trail ride around their private concession. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and may not be offered in years to come. The loop will be approximately 20-30km and friendly for all.
Take a boat cruise along the Thamalakane River, with a beer in hand to finish another day in Africa. These numbers will be limited in order to keep in with COVID protocols. So do book early to experience this. You can take a swim in the river if you fancy.
