African Jacana Safari

African Jacana Safari: In full

This varied Botswana safari explores two different areas of the Okavango Delta and one of the drier private concessions further north, in Botswana’s Linyanti region. You will stay a total of 7 nights at three great safari camps: Stanley’s Camp, Shinde and Linyanti Bush Camp. At Stanley’s there is the chance to participate in a magical elephant experience (at extra cost). The bird-watching is excellent in all of these areas, but the trip really focuses more on big game in the wildlife-rich concessions at Shinde and Linyanti Bush Camp, especially during the dry season between about July and October.

This 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, as well as the costs.

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