Find out why Botswana is such a superb safari destination by visiting 4 different game reserves with equal time spent at each. This is the opportunity to come close to the animal kingdom on game drives and boat cruises.


Start your Botswana safari experience in the Chobe National Park located in the north east of Botswana. It is the third largest national park in Botswana, made up of floodplains, swamps and woodland and famous for its buffalo and very large elephant herds. You will spend 2 nights here and enjoy game drives as well as private boat cruises on the Chobe River, a different way of animal viewing.

Next, transfer to Savute which is part of the Chobe National Park for a further 2 nights. It is best known for its concentration of lions and cheetahs. In nearby Linyanti Marsh, one of the least visited parts of Botswana and one of the most unspoiled areas in the country, there is abundant birdlife as well as lions, leopards and hippos. Not only will you take game drives but also have the opportunity to see Bushmen paintings.

After this, head for a 2 night stay at the Moremi Game Reserve. This is where the Bushmen, who have always lived in the region, were allowed to remain when the area became a game reserve. As the reserve shares unfenced boundaries with a number of other private wildlife parks, animals move freely from one to the other. Animals which can be seen here include leopards and cheetahs and a high density of antelope. With both black and white rhinos being reintroduced to the reserve, Moremi is now a “Big Five” destination.

The last stop on your Botswana Explorer is the Okavango Delta for 2 more nights. Even though it is located in the arid Kalahari Desert, the Delta supports a variety of wildlife and is home to many species. Over 400 bird species exist plus elephants, buffalo, hippos, blue wildebeest, giraffe, springbok and both black and white rhinos. You will have game drives and boat trips here.
