This extensive and varied Botswana safari explores the beautiful wet environments of the Okavango Delta and contrasting areas of the drier regions further north: you will stay for a total of 13 nights in 5 different safari camps - Khwai Tented Camp, Lagoon Camp , Linyanti Bush Camp, Xakanaxa, and Kwara Camp. From these camps you will be able to experience the full range of activities in a variety of wildlife-rich areas: including day and night game drives, boating, guided walking and mokoro trips.
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.
The trip is an individual trip – not a group trip. Please call us for more details.
