African Jacana Safari

African Jacana Safari: In full

This varied Botswana safari explores three different areas – the Chobe Enclave, a private reserve in the Okavango Delta, and the Makgadikgadi Pans. The itinerary includes a total of 8 days in three safari camps: Linyanti Ebony, Khwai Tented Camp and Camp Kalahari. This trip is a good option for families, as all these camps have family accommodation and cater well to children.

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.

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