Out of Africa in Botswana

Get out and about in all the “must-see” places in Botswana

Botswana is without doubt one of the “holy grails” of the African safari experience and no self-respecting wildlife enthusiast will go through life without making at least one pilgrimage to this untamed paradise of diversity and abundance! It offers an amazing array of different landscapes and this itinerary will give you a truly remarkable experience that will fire your passion for Africa with life-long memories of this unique sanctuary. Short light-aircraft flights will deliver you into the heart of the pristine regions of Botswana, starting with the stark beauty of the vast Makadikadi Pan. You will then fly to Xugana Island situated in the Okavango Delta, famous for its deep channels and lagoons. The perennial waters of the Okavango offer water activities and just like you would never go to Venice without a ride on a Gondola, no trip to this area is complete without a Mokoro ride, meandering through spectacular watercourses abundant with big game. It is then on to Moremi Game Reserve, where both land and water based activities await you. For a truly unique experience, you will then stay on the Pride of Zambezi Luxury Houseboat in Chobe, known for its massive herds of elephant who like nothing more than to play in these waters that team with an array of wildlife. Your journey ends at the “smoke that thunders”, the world famous Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and a veritable playground for adventure lovers.
