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: Linyanti Ebony, Machaba and Stanley's Camp. At Stanley’s there is the chance to participate in a magical elephant experience. 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 Machaba and Linyanti Ebony, 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.
Starting from Maun, you are flown by light aircraft to the Chobe Enclave, a private concession to the west of Chobe National Park. You'll be based at the small and friendly Linyanti Ebony for 3 nights. Explore the area on day and night game drives in 4WD vehicles, occasional walks with an armed guide, as well as boat and mokoro trips when water levels permit.
After your morning activity, you will leave the camp and take a short light aircraft flight to Machaba, in the Khwai Community Concession just east of the renowned Moremi Game Reserve. You'll be based here for a further 2 nights. In this game-rich reserve, day and night game drives, boating and mokoro trips are on offer. Your guide will keep a keen eye out for the numerous predators and large herbivores that frequent this area.
Your last 2 nights will be spent at Stanley's Camp in a private concession in the south of the Okavango Delta. A real highlight here is the Elephant Experience – an opportunity to walk with three orphaned elephants, learn about them, and spend time interacting with them in their natural environment as they forage in the bush.
Take a light aircraft flight back over the Okavango Delta to Maun where your safari ends.
