Honey Badger Safari: In full
This diverse Botswana safari uses three top safari camps to explore three contrasting areas over a total of 9 nights: first it visits Tau Pan Camp, in the dry heart of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve; then it hops to the lush Xakanaxa Camp, beside one of the Okavango Delta's largest lagoons, in Moremi Game Reserve; before the trip's finale: time in the top safari area at Kwara Camp. These areas give the visit a real contrast of landscapes and environments, with equally different experiences of the game and birdlife.
This is an individual trip, and can be tailor-made and adapted to suit you.
This safari to Botswana can easily be combined with a visit to see the Victoria Falls. See our trips to Livingstone for examples of the add-on options, and their costs.
