You'll be staying in specially-selected accommodation throughout, including a luxury lodge overlooking a dramatic gorge, a charming four-tent camp deep in the Botswana bush, a stylish evocation of a 1950's safari camp and a classic camp on the edge of vast salt plains.

Crossing the border into Botswana, you'll visit three contrasting locations, with opportunities for traditional game drives, guided walks and canoe trips which together create a truly comprehensive safari. Add to this the chance to visit local villages and schools and meet local people and you'll understand why we're so excited about this holiday!

With all this packed into 11 days, you can see that this really is meerkats and much more!
