Overview

The Botswana Highlights adventure tour starts in Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. The bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline. We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat. The Chobe National Park is undoubtedly the country’s most beautiful and popular nature and game reserve. It has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, making it an ideal location for African safaris and its the third largest park in Botswana, after the Central Kalahari game Reserve and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Leaving Chobe, we set off for the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometres. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. Polers guide your mokoros through the waterways and nature walks will fill your days.
