Prices From:
US$ 4,205

Experience the untouched natural beauty and wildlife of Botswana on this safari tour. Staying in first-class safari lodges, you’ll journey across the nation and into Namibia and Zimbabwe to cruise along the Chobe River, explore the islands and pans of the Okavango Delta, and gaze upon the majesty of Victoria Falls.


This 12-day African safari takes you across Botswana and also to Namibia and Zimbabwe to explore the bountiful natural landscapes of this Southern African region. It includes first-class accommodations, shared tours, and is perfect for return visitors to Africa with a taste for adventure.

Your trip to Botswana begins in Kasane, where you’ll spend a couple nights on the banks of the Chobe River. Staying at a premium safari lodge, you’ll enjoy a sunset game viewing along the Chobe River, where you can spot hippos, crocodiles, and all manner of colourful birds. The next day, you have the option of a game drive through Chobe National Park to see some of the many elephants that live in the park. Head southeast and travel through the Makgadikgadi Pans to Nata Lodge, near the waters of Sua Pan. Experience breathtaking sunset views over the lake and enjoy the fascinating landscape.

Head east to Maun and Moremi Game Reserve, one of the country’s largest wildlife reserves pitched on the northern edge of the Okavango Delta. You’ll spend two days at the premium Mogotiho Safari Lodge and head on morning and afternoon game drives. As you trek through the diverse landscape of flooded pans, plains, and forests, you’ll spot lions and leopards hunting their prey as well as rare animals like rhinos and hippos. Connect back to Maun, where you’ll have the option to enjoy a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta.

Drive across the panhandle and into the heart of the Okavango Delta. At Swamp Stop, you’ll board a boat and journey across the waters of the delta to reach Pepere Island, your home for the next two nights. Staying in fixed Meru-style tents, you’ll explore the surrounding islands and their waterways. Spot crocodiles on the water and colourful birds living on the sandy banks of the islands.

Cross into Namibia and spend a day exploring the landscape of the Caprivi Strip and the region along the Kwando River. After spotting zebras crossing the wet landscape or elephants cooling off in the waters, head back into Botswana and cross into Zimbabwe, reaching Victoria Falls, the final destination on your journey. Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world and one of the most iconic spots on the planet. You’ll have a couple nights at leisure in Victoria Falls to explore the majestic waterfalls and engage in some adventure activities. You can go white-water rafting along the Zambezi River, bungee jump into a deep crevice, or take a helicopter flight over the falls to admire them from high above. If you’re truly daring, brave the Devil’s Pool over the waterfalls, which has only a narrow rock separating you from the depths of the gorge. At the end of your journey, head to the airport to connect back home.
