Small-group lodge safari through Botswana and Zimbabwe, Discover some of the most beautiful scenery and wildlife that Africa has to offer, starting in Maun and ending in Victoria Falls – 13 days
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. Moremi contains – within its boundaries – approximately 20% of the Delta, and a vast range of habitats, acacia forests, floodplains, reed beds, lagoons, enduring wetland through mopane forest, and dry savanna woodland.
Grater Moremi Region Game Reserve – It covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, which create some startling and unexpected contrasts. It is the best place to experience excellent views of savannah game as well as bird-watching on the lagoons
Okavango Delta – The Okavango Delta is both a permanent and seasonal home to hundreds of species of animals and birds. Conservationists have taken a great interest in the preservation of the Botswana Delta, as it is such an exceptional area of Africa.
Savuti Game Reserve – Our safaris through Savuti will offer you the best locations from which to view wildlife. If you book your Botswana Safari for the dry winter months (June to November) you will have the best opportunities for game viewing, as predators tend to lurk around the water holes. During the rainy season (December to April), the game migrates towards grassy areas and the zebra migration is usually tailed by roving prides of lion.
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
Chobe River – Enjoy game viewing by boat on the Chobe River, providing a unique experience with a different perspective to wildlife behaviours.
Victoria Falls – Located on the Zambezi River, it has been described as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls is classified as the largest. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America’s Niagara Falls.
