Enjoy diverse African landscapes from the thunderous Victoria Falls, to the serene wildlife-filled wilderness of the Okavango Delta, and across to the dramatic Nxai Pan.

This is a varied tailor-made Botswana safari taking in some of the best sights of this beautiful country. If you're looking for an exceptional wildlife and wilderness safari, with comfortable places to stay, good guiding, and exciting experiences, this could be right for you.

You have two nights each at Livingstone (Victoria Falls), Chobe Elephant Camp in Chobe, Splash Camp and Pom Pom Camp in the Okavango Delta, and Nxai Pan Camp.

In addition to some road transfers you will also be flown over some of these picturesque areas by light aircraft which is both exciting and awe-inspiring.

In general the wildlife on this trip should be good whatever the time of year, though the dry season (around May to October/November) tends to bring the best sightings of larger mammals as they are drawn to the water sources of the Delta and the Chobe and any waterholes.

The greener months of November to April tend to find the wildlife less concentrated by water sources, but the landscape is lush and it is the birthing season, which brings inevitable and dramatic predator and prey interaction. This is also one of the best times for keen birders.

We have travelled these areas and know these camps, so we can answer any questions you have about whether this safari might be right for you. We look forward to hearing from you if we can help you plan this or another Botswana safari.
