Chobe National Park – Renowned for its impressive, shifting migratory population of more than 50,000 elephants, Chobe National Park is situated in the far north-east of Botswana, bordered to the north by the mighty Chobe River. As the second-largest national park in Botswana, and it has four distinct eco-systems: Serondela in the extreme northeast with fertile plains and thick forests; the Savuti Channel in the west; the Linyanti Swamps in the northwest; and the arid hinterland in between. This diversity of habitats provides a sanctuary to an astonishing array of African wildlife.

The park is also famous for its wonderful riverboat safaris, making Chobe an essential destination for any avid safari enthusiast.
Kazuma Forest Reserve – Situated in the Chobe region of Botswana, the pristine Kazuma Forest Reserve offers visitors an authentic African wilderness experience. This impressive landscape stretches over thousands of hectares and features expansive grassland, natural pans, and Mopane tree forests. It is home to abundant wildlife and provides an ideal habitat for wildebeest, buffalo, antelope, sable, giraffe, zebra, lion, and leopard. Numerous herds of elephants also frequent this reserve as it is idyllically positioned in an elephant corridor.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities including guided walks, fishing trips, and sunrise or sunset game drives.
Okavango Delta – When you take your Vic Falls, Chobe & Delta safari through the Okavango Delta, you will have the opportunity to explore the natural environment that supports large herds of Elephant, Antelope and Buffalo, as well as Hippopotamus, Giraffe, Crocodile, Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Wildebeest, Rhinoceros, Zebra, Baboon and countless others.
Khwai Area – The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives.

It covers more than 4871 square kilometers of pristine wilderness, and the varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways, and dense forest. This diverse ecosystem supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest, and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, lion, cheetah, and packs of wild dog in the open grasslands. The birdlife is prolific and includes most of the 550 bird species recorded on Botswana’s national bird list. A range of luxury lodges in the reserve offers visitors the perfect base to experience this corner of paradise.
Victoria Falls – Victoria Falls has been called “the greatest known curtain of falling water” and it is a truly spectacular sight to see. Victoria Falls borders Zambia and Zimbabwe and can be viewed from vast distances from both sides. Columns of spray can be felt from miles away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge.
