Trip Highlights

  • Take the rugged roads and tough terrain spreading across Botswana’s untouched landscapes via a 4x4 vehicle capable of driving across the most difficult topography en route to the Okavango Panhandle
  • Treasure the world-class fishing available across the Okavango Delta while admiring the extraordinary wilderness views stretching out across the nourished floodplains teeming with birdlife and water-loving animals
  • Tour the abundant grasslands surrounding the Okavango Panhandle’s marshy wetlands, spotting a series of magnificent mammals en route to the spiritually significant Tsodilo Hills, a stunning destination culturally embedded in ancient San history
  • Spend hours casting your fishing rod into the Zambezi River’s backwaters and the sapphire strip of Kwando River from the luxuriant banks of Namibia’s viridian Caprivi salient, catching tigerfish, among others, and appreciating the indigenous birdlife
  • Relish game drives across Chobe National Park’s prolific landscapes and witness the massive elephant herds, for which the reserve is famous, meandering the Chobe River banks amongst the other phenomenal wildlife in the region
  • Gaze upon the awe-inspiring views of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, from lofty viewpoints lining the towering precipice of the momentous sheet of falling water
  • Set off into the sky to witness the panoramic views of the falls and the sprawling wilderness vistas from a unique vantage point within a light aircraft, helicopter, or microlight
  • Revel in stunning safari drives across the sweeping golden savannas and vast open plains of Savute, where you will hope to spot prides of lions, herds of elephants, and crashes of rhinos wandering the desolate region
  • Explore the furthest corners of Savute and visit massive monolithic geological formations that remain significant parts of the impressive landscape as they once were regarded highly by local Bushman tribes who painted on the rocks composing the hills
  • Cruise across the web of waterways weaving through the Okavango Delta’s garden of islands and partake in exceptional fishing experiences at some of Moremi Game Reserve’s premier fishing spots
