Your Botswana adventure begins on the banks of the Boteti River, which forms the boundary of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
Remnants of a giant super lake that once covered this part of Africa, the Makgadikgadi salt pans are the largest in the world. Day trips into the park reveal a striking landscape dominated by shimmering expanses of crusted salt studded with baobabs. During the rainy season the pans flood and attract a mini migration of zebra and wildebeest following ancient migration routes – an unpredictable but truly fascinating event.
In the dry season, the Boteti becomes a lifeline for the wildlife that inhabit the park. When not watching for lions, bushbucks, cheetahs and spotted hyenas from the comfort of your room, venture further afield on guided drives and bush walks. You can even enjoy boat activities if water levels permit. Cultural visits to the local village and day trips to Nxai pan and Baines Baobabs can also be arranged.
Stay: Three nights at Leroo La Tau in a thatched suite on a fully inclusive basis.
Your journey now brings you to the wondrous Okavango Delta, whose expansive lagoons and floodplains stand in sharp contrast to the dry Kalahari Desert that surrounds it. Your camp lies within the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve, the oldest protected section of the Okavango.
You’ll be treated to blend of land and water-based activities, including the opportunity to explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and its surrounding channels. As you explore, keep an eye out for leopards lazing in the branches of mopane trees and lions concealed in the long grass. You’ll be in a prime spot for viewing antelope – including impala, kudu and waterbuck – as well as elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Birdlife is prolific, with the elusive Pel’s Fishing Owl making an occasional appearance.
Stay: Two nights at Camp Moremi in a thatched safari tent on a fully inclusive basis.
Your exploration of the world’s largest inland delta continues, transferring to a purely water-based camp on the remote island of Nxaragha.
Here in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, you can roam across the water in the comfort of a modern motorboat or take the old-fashioned route in a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). Experienced guides will navigate you through the meandering, reed-lined waterways, allowing you to get up close to wildlife and explore the intricacies of the delta.
Although game drives are not possible, guided bush walks are offered on a number of nearby islands, allowing you to track some of the region’s larger land-based species. The birding opportunities are outstanding, whilst keen fishers can try their hand against bream and tiger fish.
Stay: Three nights at Camp Okavango in a safari suite on a fully inclusive basis.
