Botswana and Falls Explorer

Botswana and Falls Explorer Botswana and Falls Explorer
£5850

Daytime safaris, night drives and river trips will take you to some of the richest game areas on the African continent, and then a trip across the border will bring you face to face with the dramatic Victoria Falls.

In Botswana, the more you explore the more you’ll discover. Begin in the World Heritage-sponsored Okavango Delta, where annual floodwaters create unique wetlands that support all kinds of wildlife, before flying to the million-acre Kwando Concession to spend a couple of nights in one of the finest wilderness camps in Africa. The wild dog sightings are legendary, whilst game drives after dark will give you nocturnal sightings of even more elusive species.

You’ll end with one of Africa’s greatest natural marvels. The Victoria Falls at Livingstone is a thundering, breath-taking spectacle, created as a mighty river – the Zambezi – plunges over a soaring cliff.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
