About this trip

This trip lets you experience the beauty of Botswana without compromising on luxury. You’ll spend six nights in the country, staying in two open-air tented camps set in the wilderness that provide the perfect starting-off point for your wildlife safari. You’ll be walking, driving, flying and cruising through Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Linyanti regions, home to both predator and prey. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Africa’s “Big Five” - lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo – as well as giraffes, crocodiles, hippos, baboons, antelope, wildebeest and wild dogs, to name but a few species.
