Detailed Description

This safari tour in Botswana will astonish. Touch down in the diverse and exciting city of Johannesburg before being whisked away to true paradise in the watery oasis of the Okavango Delta. Nxabega Tented Camp awaits you, tucked away in the riverine forest where rustic bush meets luxury and indulgence. Also waiting is an expert guide to show you the wonders of the wild! Whether by vehicle, on foot or by boat, head out to meet the wildlife, flora and fauna lying in wait for your camera, and experience encounters that will leave you lost for words.

After this initiation into the magic of the Delta, fly to another, equally spectacular wilderness in the vastness of the Kalahari. Here, at Grasslands Bushman Lodge, there are new sights and sounds to behold, and the chance to meet with the local Bushman community who will open your eyes to a truly fascinating world. Gain an insight into their skills and arts, and connect with the profound historical traditions of their people and culture. After an unforgettable few days in the presence of these incredible hosts, return to your home in the Okavango for more adventures seeking lion, leopard and wild dog amongst the glittering waterways and sprawling plains.

As hard as it is to leave this stunning area, further spectacles await you at Chobe Chilwero, your gateway to the Chobe National Park. Glide amongst hippo and crocodiles on a sunset cruise; for those bushed out muscles there is a gorgeous spa with endless opportunities for pampering. If your heart yearns for more, or you simply cannot say farewell to your African adventure quite yet, there are optional days to be spent at the jaw-dropping Victoria Falls. Ride an elephant through the bush; take a heart-stopping white-water raft; bungee jump or canyon swing; or simply sit back with a gin and tonic and watch the world go by from the comfort of the beautiful Elephant Camp.
