SAFARI OVERVIEW

Explore the diversity of Botswana and Zambia on this wonderful Six night safari.

A trip to Botswana or Zambia will provide the most memorable safaris in Africa. You will experience the excitement of a close encounter with wildlife as you track lions, elephants and hippos through their natural habitats while watching the cycle of life unfold just feet away.

Botswana is home to some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife. In fact, the country is home to more elephants than any other country in the world. Lions are free roaming, and all kinds of wildlife, from endangered African wild dogs, to antelopes, can be found on the vast plains. Zambia is equally remarkable, especially along its many waterways. You can canoe down a peaceful river, raft through raging rapids close to Victoria Falls, or wander through the bush to find amazing wildlife. The day ends with stories around the campfire.

Now you can experience these two world collide in the contrast of the lagoons and crystal-clear waterways of the Okavango delta, and the natural wonder of the Victoria Falls and Zambezi River. Spend your days on a Mokoro safari through the delta, on a walking safari or game drive and fishing (catch and release) on the Zambezi.

Set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession, this beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time.
