Botswana Focus

The mighty Victoria Falls, elephants in Chobe and the game-rich Okavango Delta. What more could you want?

Botswana Focus

9 days from £2,950 pp

(exc. international flights)

Explore two different areas of the Okavango Delta for exciting game drives, mokoro trips and perhaps a bush walk.

This trip is a great introduction to Botswana with the added bonus of Victoria Falls thrown in. Start in the vibrant town of Victoria Falls where there is plenty to keep you enthralled and entertained.

Crossing the border into Botswana you’ll explore the Chobe National Park in a 4×4 vehicle and by boat, returning to your lodge on the banks of the Chobe River to relax between excursions, surrounded by riverine forest.

A light aircraft transfer takes you to the jewel in Botswana’s crown, the Okavango Delta where you’ll enjoy exploring on foot and in traditional dug-out canoes. Sunsets in the Delta are spectacular and best enjoyed while on a motorboat on the water. From here a short light aircraft transfer will take you to Khwai, which lies adjacent to the famous Moremi Game Reserve, for more adventure and wildlife action.

All too soon it’s time to catch your final light aircraft flight to Maun Airport where your onward plane awaits.
