Experience Details

In this adventure travel and enjoy nature on safaris during the day and settle down in comfortable lodges to rest at night. This tour covers all the important and diverse experiences that Botswana has to offer and also includes the glorious Victoria falls, just next door in neighboring Zimbabwe.
Immerse yourself in nature in the rich floodplains of the Okavango Delta, the rich wildlife of the Moremi Game reserve, the varied ecosystems of the Chobe National Park, the beautiful isolation of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and end it in the sprays of the iconic Victoria falls.

Situated deep within the Kalahari Basin, Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is often referred to as the ‘jewel’ of the Kalahari. Experiencing safaris on the traditional canoes (Mokoros)on the floodplains is unlike any other safari that you may have been on in Africa; a unique opportunity to observe wildlife up and close.

The Chobe National Park, with a very high density of wildlife has distinct ecosystems within it – ranging from floodplains, river systems to savannahs. Famous for its large herds of Elephants and buffaloes, enjoy this park on a river cruise, game drives and walking safaris. With more than 450 species of birds recorded in the park, this is truly a birder’s idea of paradise
