Linyanti Okavango and Kalahari Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Botswana

A voyage of discovery into Botswana's most famous safari regions, the Kalahari, the Okavango, and the Linyanti region. Encounter diverse landscapes and varied wildlife species in private concession areas whilst digitally detoxing in remote, eco-friendly tents and chalets. Kick-off this adventure in the Kalahari Desert at Tau Pan Camp. In addition to the unique opportunity to walk with the Bushmen trackers, see unique wildlife including the pride of iconic black-maned Kalahari lions, the desert-adapted springbok, and the rare brown hyena. Follow this with a stay at Splash Camp in the famous Okavango Delta.

See the Delta's incomparable wildlife offering in a range of activities from game drives and mokoro excursions to boat cruises, seasonal fishing, and walking safaris. Lagoon Camp is on the shady banks of the hippo-filled Kwando River. Predators and large herds of elephants are the order of the day here. Conclude your epic adventure on the unique double-deck boat, drifting along the river while enjoying spectacular views, mammal and bird life while sipping at your 'sundowner' of choice.
