Botswana Three Rivers Safari

7 days from £2095pp plus international flights.

Botswana - one of Africa's best safari destinations. This trip brings you two of the country's highlights, Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta, and you also get to see the unmissable Victoria Falls.

This three-centre safari holiday will give you a wonderful experience and some memories to treasure. It is a tailor-made holiday so you can take this trip when you like. Starting in Victoria Falls (on the Zimbabwean side) you get to see one of the most well-known sights of Africa. You have two days here to try lots of activities or simply take in the beauty of this dramatic natural wonder.

You will then be transferred by road to Kasane, just over the border in Botswana. Chobe National Park has its focus on the Chobe River which attracts wildlife from miles and miles around. Wildlife viewing here can be very rewarding, and you have the added bonus of being able to take a boat cruise - a different way to see the wildlife.

South in the Okavango Delta you are in one of Africa's best places to see wildlife. For two days you can sit back and watch the various wildlife dramas unfold in front of you.

Throughout this trip you're staying in good quality accommodation, with the camp in the Delta being a very small personal place to end your trip. At each base, you will have guides from the lodge to explain about the wildlife and help you see the most you can. You will be in jeeps or land-cruisers with others staying at the camps, so whilst this is not a group trip, you will most likely find yourself with other travellers at each point on the safari - a great way to share your experiences while you're there.

A Botswana safari is never a cheap option, but this is a very good value safari using properties which are not at the top end of the price scale, and yet which in our view, offer a really good experience.

Victoria falls


This exciting Botswana safari actually starts in Zimbabwe, at the famous Victoria Falls. You will be met at the Victoria Falls airport and driven the short distance to your hotel, Ilala Lodge which is just a 10 minute walk from the entrance to the Falls. Your stay here is based on bed and breakfast, but there are restaurants. 

Victoria falls


Even if you went to the see the Falls yesterday, you'll probably want to go back again today!  However this is not all you can do here - there are lots of optional activities you could consider. There is the challenging stuff such as whitewater rafting or bungee jumping, or wildlife-orientated activities such as horse riding, or more gentle things to do like birdwatching, playing golf or taking nature walks. For the more spectacular, why not consider a flight over the Falls? You certainly won't be short of absorbing experiences. 

Game viewing in Chobe


This morning we will drive you from Victoria Falls into Botswana. Kasane is the border town which is adjacent to the superb Chobe National Park. You have two nights at Chobe Elephant Camp which is on the west of the park in a quieter area. Whilst here you will have game drives in Chobe and also a boat cruise for which this park is famous. The wildlife in Chobe is very good as the river attracts animals from a wide area. Elephants particularly love this park, but will get a chance of seeing many other species such as antelopes, zebras, warthogs, lions, hyenas ... and of course the birdlife is excellent.
Full board.

Boat safari in Chobe, Botswana


In the dry season from about May to October the river is the big draw and the focus of wildlife viewing, however in the green season the animals are far more spread out through the park due to water being available throughout. In November/December many babies are born so that is always a good sight on safari in the green season. Whatever the weather, two days at Chobe should give you a great wildlife experience. 
Full board.
Sango Safari camp, Botswana


Today, after breakfast, you will be taken to the local airport for a short flight into the Okavango Delta.  Your camp is in an area which can offer both land and water activities so you will see both aspects of wilderness and wildilfe in the Okavango from here. It's a wonderful spot. 
Full board.

Jacana in Okavango Delta, Botswana


Game drives, night drives and bush walks ... you have another day of exciting wildlife activities in this excellent area of the Okavango Delta. Botswana's Delta truly offers some of Africa's very best wildlife viewing.  Big cats are spotted, even rare wild dogs are seen, wildebeest, buffalo, elephants, giraffe ... And as you would expect from an area of swamps, rivers and lagoons, the birdlife is spectacular. Your guide will aim to find the wildlife you're particularly keen on, but the whole experience should be a memorable one come what may. 
Full board. 

Elephant in Botswana


This morning you will be flown by light aircraft to Maun airport where the safari ends. Even up until the last moment this is a trip offering you special experiences as you'll get to see some of the spectacular sights of the Okavango Delta from above. From Maun you take your onward flight.
