Highlights of Botswana
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. We accommodate guests in spacious and comfortable Meru tents.
- Visit Chobe National Park (Savuti & Chobe River Front) and a boat cruise on the Chobe River
- enjoy the freedom of the Khwai Concession Area
- experience night drives and bush walks and see big game in Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango World Heritage Site
- explore the fringes of the Okavango Delta by mokoro and take a charter flight over the Okavango Delta
