Vast swathes of northern Botswana are far too wild for roads or even for rugged four-wheel driving. Access to the pristine wilderness is by light aircraft, touching down on dusty airstrips surrounded by elephants. Fly in and then explore to spend two days each in five distinctive safari destinations. From the Chobe woodlands to the Okavango oasis, Savute Channel to Makgadikgadi Pans, this luxury safari showcases the mystique and wonder of both the Delta and the desert.
