Botswana, Vic Falls & Cape Town

11 Days/10 Nights

For safari enthusiasts wanting to get into prime wildlife country and into remote regions, we highly recommend Botswana. It is a land of pristine wilderness and a mecca for some of the greatest wildlife sightings in the world. Its incredibly diverse eco-systems range from open savannah, semi-deserts and the water channels of the inland Okavango Delta. Game drives are in open vehicles. Depending on your selected camp, activities offered will vary and may include night drives and walks. When water levels allow, take a guided mokoro (canoes) trip through the crystal waters spotted with lily pads, tall reeds and colorful birds.

We are often asked what the difference between a safari in Botswana and Greater Kruger’s private game reserves is. They are both excellent wildlife destinations. The same species can be found in both areas. Botswana has larger herds, with a little more of the search required than Greater Kruger where it is easy to see the “Big Five”. "Bots" gives you a feel of being in a remote land, relatively untouched and uncrowded but with the highest standards of comfort. The water activities such as canoe rides guided by professional 'polers' and boating safaris are a feature that the Greater Kruger does not offer. Botswana has a feel of the wild Africa where Greater Kruger feels a bit more managed. If time and resources will not allow your trip to include Botswana, Greater Kruger would not disappoint.

Is this your dream trip?

When going to Southern Africa for safari, Cape Town really should be included on the agenda. The city easily links to flights to Botswana as well as international flights. It is geologically one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

The emphasis on this trip is the Botswana Safari. Botswana is for those who want an intimate, authentic experience in the bush with high comfort levels. Transportation between camps are short with very scenic flights, so there are no long drive times. Botswana is a more expensive safari destination than the Greater Kruger private reserves and East Africa.  This safari is a remote high end trip. If you are looking for a value trip and Victoria Falls is a must, then a safari in the Chobe region would be a better choice due to the price point.

  • OKAVANGO DELTA is a phenomenal wildlife region. Within it's waterways are island camps, bordering reserves and private unfenced concessions where all of the "Big Five" can be found. Hippos and crocodiles cool themselves while herds of elephant and buffalo graze in the floodplains.
  • THE CHOBE REGION - the largest area and closest to Victoria Falls, generally this area is fairly crowded with travelers and not that rich in predators. To really see the best of Chobe, it is imperative to fly further into the park and base your safari in the Savute region.
  • SAVUTI (SAVUTE) REGION OF CHOBE – located on the south end of Chobe, this area is extremely game-rich especially for predator sightings. Large prides of lion hunt on the grasslands, leopard and wild dog can be seen as well. The Savuti Channel waterways do ebb and flow. The waters do ebb and flow, in 2019 the high waters dramatically transformed the area into a paradise for large herds of elephant and buffalo.
  • MOREMI GAME RESERVE – located within the Okavango Delta, this is one of the most reliable game viewing areas in Botswana. On game drives travel into open grasslands and onto the lion and wild dog territories. Elephant gather on the river banks and leopards can be seen in the branches of the trees. Boating can be done on the many waterways.
  • KWANDO/LINYANTI/SELINDA - west of Chobe lies the woodlands and wetlands of this region. It is big game country. In the dry season (July-October) you have the opportunity to see exceptionally large herds. Linyanti is made up of several private concessions where the number of guests are strictly limited.
  • KALAHARI, MAKGADIKGADI PANS & NXAI PAN PARK– an awe-inspiring area made up of open grassland punctuated by wooded valleys and moonscape salt pans. There are game drives and walks with the San Bushmen. Wildlife is seasonal.
