Small-group lodge safari through Botswana & Zimbabwe, starting in Maun and ending in Victoria Falls – 10 days
Nxai Pan National Park – Taking a Botswana safari through the Nxai Pan National Park will introduce you to the many sights and sounds of the true African wilderness. The Nxai Pan National Park is a fascinating Botswana Safari destination due to the ample and varied animal life, as well as the Baobabs that lie scattered around the Nxai Pan.
Moremi National Park – Moremi has been described as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa, with a great diversity of plant and animal life – making it a ‘must see’ for any Botswana Safari.
Khwai River – The Khwai area of Botswana can be described as a combination of pretty lagoons and winding channels of papyrus, which is scenically beautiful and naturally peaceful. The Khwai River is surrounded by little islands that feed off the borders of the river, and it is fed and re-nourished by Angola’s annual summer rains, which take approximately four months to flow down into Botswana.
Chobe National Park – Chobe National Park is well known for the beautiful Savuti region, a definite highlight on our safari in Botswana. On our Chobe National Park safari, you will experience one of many natural phenomena, such as witnessing one of the largest elephant herds in the world, or possibly the annual zebra migration.
Hwange National Park – Situated on the main road between Bulawayo and the world famous Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park boasts a tremendous selection of wildlife and over 100 species of birds. Hwange carries 105 mammal species, including 19 large herbivores and eight large carnivores. The big five can all be found in Hwange, as well as many other predators.
Victoria Falls – Victoria Falls has been called “the greatest known curtain of falling water” – and it is a truly spectacular site to see. Victoria Falls borders on Zambia and Zimbabwe, and can be viewed from vast distances from both sides.
