Best of Botswana – A Safari Mecca
Laying in the heart of southern Africa, Botswana is a country that exemplify the safari experience and embodies the outstanding beauty of Africa. The arid desert country is one of miraculous scenes, and to ensure it stays that way, Botswana has adopted a low-impact, high-cost tourism policy which guarantees its visitors exclusivity, luxury and the feel of a true African wilderness.
This tour takes in the breathtaking Okavango Delta, one of the world’s greatest and most pristine wilderness areas, then onto northern Botswana into the remote Linyanti and Savute regions. You are guaranteed some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing in Africa in both these regions.
This itinerary ends at Victoria Falls, where you can opt to stay in Vic Falls on the Zimbabwe side, or in Livingstone on the Zambia side of the Zambezi. Vic Falls is the world’s largest waterfall and is a World Heritage Site.

Highlights of this region:
6 nights split between 2 camps in the Okavango Delta
Blue skies and a green oasis
In a land where the arid sands of the Kalahari Desert stretches far and wide, and where the whirling of dust demons dance through the waves of heat, the imposing waters of the Okavango Delta takes control and swallow the barren desert, transforming it into an oasis of sky blues and emerald greens. This desert oasis is the world’s largest inland delta, and its overwhelming beauty is a site to behold. Bursting out into numerous networks of winding water labyrinths, the Okavango River feeds the deltas shimmering floodplains, pools and lagoons and nourishes the floating lilies and fringing forests.
If the Okavango Delta is visited for its striking beauty then the Moremi Wildlife Reserve is all about the game. Located within the north-western regions of the delta, Moremi Wildlife Reserve is where dense populations of game come to play, especially during the dry season. Massive herds of buffalo and elephants migrate to these regions and large predators like the lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena and jackal all hunt their prey in and around the reserve. The reeds, grass and palm- fringed islands are havens to more than 450 bird species, which make the Okavango Delta an astonishing paradise to all birdwatchers.

3 Nights at a camp in the Linyanti & Savuti region
A haven of wildlife and luxury
Famous for the march of more than 70000 migratory African elephants, Chobe National Park is visited by many and is without a doubt, one of Botswana’s magnificent treasures.
Flowing from within the borders of Angola, the Kwando River pierces through Botswana’s border, feeding the Linyanti Swamp river valleys and from there, it forges below and forms the Linyanti River. The stream courses steadily eastward and transform yet again into the Chobe River before merging with the Zambezi. It is the surge of these currents that gives life to some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.
The Linyanti Reserve which borders Chobe National Park consists of marshy vistas, open floodplains, rolling savannas and the Savuti Channel which are home to hundreds of hippos. The mopane forests and open plains of the Kwando Reserve are probably where you’ll find most of the wildlife convening. From many species of antelope to wild dogs, giraffe and wildebeest; the prey of the reserves nonchalantly minding their own business as they try their best not to be eaten by the opportunistic prowl of the hunting lion.
