Botswana’s northern highlights
This safari offers a huge amount of variety over 10 days. Aside from varied habitat diversity we also use different modes of transport to explore Botswana’s Okavango. This includes boat, mokoro, vehicle and light aircraft. In addition you’ll experience night drives and bush walks during the cool hours of day.
We accommodate guests in spacious and comfortable Meru tents. You get to focus on the adventure as a full team takes care of the detail.
- Visit Chobe National Park (Savuti & Chobe River Front)
- Boat cruise on the Chobe River
- You’ll enjoy the freedom of the Khwai Concession Area
- See big game in Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango World Heritage Site
- Explore the fringes of the Okavango Delta by mokoro
- Take a charter flight over the Okavango Delta
This safari routes from Kasane through Chobe, Khwai and Moremi to Maun, but as a result of seasonal changes it can be run in reverse.
We offer easy extensions to cover Makgadikgadi Pans and since we prefer to use Victoria Falls as our main hub this safari is easy to combine with Hwange in Zimbabwe.
More about Letaka Safaris
The Letaka Safaris team, including Mike Reed (Dad) and the two “Safari Brothers” (Grant and Brent Reed) have actively guided over the last two decades in Botswana. In addition to running safaris they’ve been instrumental in elevating guide standards through Okavango Guiding School.
As a result Letaka Safaris have pick of the crop and therefore employ some of Botswana’s best mobile guides.
