Our Botswana Highlights adventure unfurls like an exciting story, beginning in the vibrant town of Victoria Falls. Although it’s not the tallest nor the widest, the charm of this waterfall lies in its enormity, reigning as the world’s most expansive curtain of water. Victoria Falls provides a welcoming introduction to our journey, a hub of exhilaration for thrill-seekers with a wide array of adrenaline-inducing options. We recommend stretching your vacation a bit, arriving a couple of days early to behold the awe-inspiring spectacle of Mosi-Oa-Tunya, aptly known as “The Smoke That Thunders”.

From Victoria Falls, we transition to the mesmerizing landscapes of Botswana, setting camp along the fringes of the Chobe National Park. Here, the safari continues from a vantage point unlike any other – a riverboat navigating the waterways of this iconic park, reputed for its enchanting beauty and prolific wildlife. And for those seeking a closer encounter, an optional terrestrial safari through the park can be arranged.

The expedition heads forward through the vast Makgadikgadi Pans to the remarkable Moremi Game Reserve, a vast arena teeming with nature’s grandeur. Board our open 4×4 safari vehicles designed to maximize your wildlife viewing experience and plunge into the heart of this reserve, nestled between the world-famous Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. The reserve is a magnet for wildlife enthusiasts, renowned for hosting some of the densest concentrations of fauna in Southern Africa.

Our odyssey brings us to the intriguing Khwai Conservation Area, nestled on the Okavango Delta’s northern flank. This expanse is an intricate maze of lagoons, lakes, and concealed channels sprawling across 17,000 square kilometres, forming the planet’s largest inland delta. The Delta’s water levels and temperatures shift drastically between seasons, ensuring that every visit offers a unique vista.

Our stay in Khwai is marked by two nights of absorbing the primal rhythm of Africa. A late afternoon game drive sets the pace, followed by a tranquil journey through the delta on a mokoro, a traditional dug-out canoe, guided by experienced polers. A nature walk will fill our senses with the wild heartbeat of Botswana, punctuating our memorable safari, which concludes in the frontier town of Maun.
