Large-spotted Genet safari

Large-spotted Genet: In full

This Botswana safari concentrates on two great game areas: the dry Linyanti Reserve, and the lusher Okavango Delta, where you will stay for a total of 9 nights in three top safari game camps: Xigera, Chitabe Lediba and Savuti Camp.

This itinerary gives a really broad game experience - the bird-watching is first-rate in Xigera / Kwetsani while the focus at Chitabe Lediba and Savuti Camp is more on big game – these areas have excellent populations of lion and leopard in particular.

This trip is an individual trip, and can be tailor-made and adapted to suit you.

This Botswana safari can also easily be combined with a visit to Livingstone in Zambia or Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to see the Victoria Falls. See our trips to Livingstone or trips to Victoria Falls for examples of the add-on options, and the costs.
