Leopard Safari: In full
This Botswana safari, to the Linyanti Reserve and different areas of the Okavango Delta, stays in three well-appointed safari game camps – for a total of 10 nights – including Tubu Tree, Little Vumbura and Selinda Camp. This trip's big game viewing and bird-watching are excellent, and you'll be staying at first-class camps which are small and intimate, with outstanding guides.
This Botswana safari can also 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.
Starting from the UK, your scheduled overnight flight
will take you from London Heathrow to Johannesburg.
3 nights at Tubu Tree Camp (full board & activities) | Okavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana
In Jo'burg you'll connect to a 2-hour scheduled Air Botswana
flight to Maun; where you'll be met and flown to a small airstrip in the Jao concession, a private reserve on the western side of the Delta. You'll be based there for 3 nights
for some superb birding, and the game sightings from Tubu are generally the best in this reserve.
3 nights at Little Vumbura (full board & activities) | Okavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana
A 20-minute flight takes you into the Okavango Delta to Little Vumbura
. You land at Vumbura's airstrip, then it is a game drive, followed by a short journey by boat to camp - through forests, across plains and open glades – taking time to stop and look at game. Vumbura has small, wooded islands and rich floodplains, resulting in great density and diversity of game. For the next 3 nights
, your comfortable base is Little Vumbura.
4 nights at Selinda Camp (full board & activities) | Kwando-Linyanti area, Botswana
A very short flight takes you into a different and contrasting area - the Selinda Reserve. Selinda Camp is a small camp that stands on the edge of the Selinda Spillway. Activities concentrate on day and night drives, and short walks can sometimes be arranged. Spend your next 4 nights
at Selinda Camp.
You probably have time for a morning activity before your light aircraft flight from the Selinda Reserve to Maun. There you connect with your scheduled international flight to Jo'burg, and onto a scheduled overnight flight
Arriving back in London Heathrow, early in the morning, it will hardly be as lovely – but then you will have a superb Botswana safari to look back on!
