At a glance

Discover Botswana with a safari adventure across land and water that takes in a luxury camp in the Kalahari plains before moving onto the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve.

We’ve handpicked the very best accommodation in each area and you’ll be in the careful hands of expert guides to ensure that this trip is your most memorable yet.

Start your trip in the semi-arid savannah of the Kalahari: a game drive to spot the elusive black-maned lion and an interpretive walk with the Bushmen in their ancestral home will make your stay an unforgettable experience.

Once you’ve reached the Okavango Delta, you will have the chance to explore it by boat. Enjoy zooming down the waterways in a motorboat as well as a more tranquil floating experience by a mokoro – dugout canoe – allowing you to get up close to nature. You will have the opportunity to see elephants, hippos, tiny coloured reed frogs and most importantly, the incredible birdlife that this area is known for.

Your final destination is the Moremi – proclaimed a game reserve in 1963 under the leadership of Chief Moremi III’s wife. Located in the eastern and central part of the Okavango Delta, the Moremi includes Chiefs Island and the Moremi tongue. This area has one of the most diverse ecosystems on the continent and is also the only officially protected part of the Delta, so has a special significance to scientists and environmentalists. Here you can enjoy exhilarating game drives, with lots of big game sightings; in particular, the lion versus buffalo interaction is a big draw.

The Okavango Delta is rightly known as one of the premier wildlife habitats in the world, home to an enormous density and diversity of wildlife. There’s something quite magical about the Delta, with its amazing sunsets, the sound of the frogs at night, and the elephants wading through the reeds, all combining to make an unforgettable stay.

One of nature’s great spectacles, the flooding of the Delta, brings water from thousands of miles upstream in Angola, arriving into Botswana in the dry season where it spills out into the desert creating an incredible network of channels and lagoons. Huge herds of animals flock to take advantage of the ready supply of water and flourishing grasses, and their predators follow.

The Okavango Delta is known as one of the premier wildlife habitats in the world, home to an enormous density and diversity of wildlife. The flooding of the Delta brings water from thousands of miles upstream on the Okavango river, arriving into Botswana in the dry season. Huge herds of animals flock to take advantage of the ready supply of water and nutrients, and their predators follow. You'll have the opportunity to witness this spectacle as you ride through the reeds as the sun goes down in a ‘mokoro’ - a traditional dug-out canoe - or in a speed boat. Your Okavango-born guide and poler will help you to spot tiny frogs, hippo, crocodile, the elusive sitatunga and colourful waterbirds such as Pel's Fishing-Owl, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane and a host of raptors, other waterbirds and colourful kingfishers.
