With around a week to spend in Botswana we suggest combining Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta, staying in both a 'wet' camp and 'dry' camp in the Delta to really get a feel for the iconic landscapes of Botswana. You'll get to explore this vast area that includes wide-open floodplains, waterways, marshes and lagoons. This may also include an example of what you may do on days, like two or three nights in Chobe National Park, two or three nights in the Okavango Delta, and two nights in another camp in the Okavango Delta.
Each safari promises a distinct adventure. Reach out below, and let's embark on an unforgettable journey to Botswana together.
The only permanent lodge within the Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge is Botswana’s premier venue for guests wanting to explore the park. All rooms are river facing and each has its own terrace and en-suite bathroom. There is a large swimming pool, riverside boma and a bar and restaurant with Chobe River views. This is a great lodge from which to start or finish your Botswana Safari.
Kwando Kwara Camp lies in a private concession in the northern part of the Okavango Delta. Kwara Camp has nine tented-chalets built on raised platforms, all with views over the surrounding area. Each chalet has en-suite facilities with twin wash basins and inside/outside showers.
I had the most amazing time with NWS in Svalbard; the expedition leaders Mats and Hadleigh were great and got us really close to the wildlife and landscapes - the bear encounters were incredible (close and were able to watch them for literal hours demonstrating all sorts of behaviours), as were the opportunities to see walruses, seals, foxes and all sorts of birdlife. The ship was awesome, the open bridge policy was great and the crew were all lovely to chat to. The regular app updates on flight information, being able to see the travel docs etc. whilst on the boat (i.e. with no wifi) was also really useful.
We had an amazing trip to Botswana with some fantastic wildlife sightings and accommodation throughout our stay. The team was very responsive and gave me valuable advice and assistance during the booking process.
