Overview

Book
Whether you're a seasoned safari enthusiast or a first timer, this safari adventure holiday encompasses some of Africa’s most unique and diverse game reserves and national parks. Our first stop is the Khama Rhino Sanctuary on the Botswana border. We then head to the wetlands of the Okavango Delta, where we are gently poled along the water systems in a traditional mokoro (a dug-out canoe). We can see hippo, elephant, giraffe and even lion here in the delta on our walks and canoe journeys, before a sundowner at our wilderness camp. Moving on from the delta we head to the Moremi Game Reserve and then continue along the dirt road in our 4WD to travel through the incredible Savuti Game Reserve. With an abundance of wildlife, we spend each day searching for the big five (buffalo, leopard, lion, elephant and rhino). Savuti is truly a magical place and camping here enables you to really feel the heart of this country and the wildlife. Our last wildlife stop on this safari is Chobe National Park where we are out of the vehicle and cruising in boats hoping to see some of the large elephant population the park is famed for. Further possible sightings include the rare African Wild Dog and many hippo. The grand finale of this safari holiday is crossing into Zimbabwe to the vast and thundering Victoria Falls. This is a very special itinerary and your memories of the wildlife and remote campsites here in Botswana will last a lifetime.

The gentle swish of the tall grass announced his arrival. We stood alongside a termite mound as our only form of protection. There was an audible gasp around the the group as he came into view. How far away was he – 100m? No further. A volley of camera shutters showed we were not going to let this opportunity pass as he stared down at us, eyeball to eyeball. This large beast of a male lion. That I’m able to report it here testifies to a happy outcome as he eventually moved on and allowed us to complete our group walk through the bush! So what do you want from your African safari? A large number of game drives through a variety of Game Reserves? Safari on foot through the bush? Or by mokoro canoe along the Okavango Delta? Perhaps by fast riverboat? You say you’d like them all? Great - you’ve just found the right trip! How do you like your accommodation - soft fluffy pillows with crisp white towels? Don’t bother here. But if you want to feel totally at one with your surroundings then the days and the nights you spend camping wild amongst the sheer beauty of all that Botswana has to offer simply cannot be beaten. Don’t expect too much sleep though – the trumpeting laughter of the hippos, the unmistakable booming roar of the lions, the squeel of the crazy hyeneas as they raid your camp, not forgetting the elephants of course, will put paid to that. Anyway who would want to sleep when there is that level of all night entertainment to hand, and every night! This is a giant of a saf

What a fantastic 15 day holiday/adventure. Our guides were fantastic, there knowledge & passion was second to none. The camping was enjoyable, even though you spent 7 nights wild camping, which there are no proper toilets/ showers. We saw so much wildlife such as Elephants, Rhino, Zebra,Giraffe,Lions & plenty of bird life. Entering Botswana from South Africa their is an entry visa fee to pay $30, but we got away with it as it was postponed for some reason. Entry into Zambia is $50, but for the same price you can get double entry to include Zimbabwe, which is what i did. While doing the wild camps, make sure you take plenty of bottled water in with you. While in Zambia we went to Victoria falls, WOW fantastic, did get very wet as the falls were strong & the spray got you wet. We went into Zimbabwe, which i recommend , again for the other half of the Victoria Falls, also went to the Victoria Falls Hotel for a cocktail sat out the back with a view of the Victoria Bridge. Whilst in Zambia & Zimbabwe its recommend to use US dollars. I would highly recommend this holiday as the campsites for the wild camping are right in where the animals roam, would defiantly go again
