Botswana Wildlife Safari

Game Drives, Hikes, Motorboat Cruises and Mokoro Tours in Botswana, Namibia and Zambia

This value-priced Botswana camping safari has it all: the Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe National Parks, Savuti, Tsodilo Hills World Heritage Site plus Namibia's utterly wild Caprivi game reserves and awe-inspiring Victoria Falls in Zambia.

Day 1: Chobe National Park, Botswana

We drive to our first camp on the tranquil Chobe River, where an evening boat cruise reveals grunting hippos, basking crocs, bathing elephants and a glorious African sunset.

Days 2-3: Caprivi Game Reserves, Namibia

Home to elephants, lions, buffaloes, giraffes, crocodiles and hippos, the Caprivi Strip also features more than 400 species of birds. We tour the river channels, reedy islands and lush wetlands of Bwabwata National Park. Our last camp is near Popa Falls on the mighty Okavango River and the birding is exceptional.

Day 4: Tsodilo Hills, Botswana

Mahango National Park has enormous baobab trees, verdant flood plains and large herds of elephant, buffalo and red lechwe. We next tour the Tsodilo Hills, the "Louvre of the Kalahari", with Bushman guides and view some of the 4,500 rock paintings which date back more than a thousand years.

Days 5-7: Okavango Delta, Botswana

A boat cruise through the papyrus-lined channels of the Okavango Delta delivers us to dugout canoes, from which we explore the delta's watery vastness. The Okavango is the world's largest inland delta, flooding 5,800 square miles of the Kalahari Desert and creating a luxuriant maze of lagoons and channels. Two nights of island camping provide opportunities to spot many of the 350 species of birds and the rare sitatunga.

Days 8-10: Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

This area's woodlands, flood plains and marshes provide a rich living for large groups of lion, elephant, leopard, hyena, wild dog, eland, kudu, roan antelope, giraffe, zebra, impala, buffalo, hippo and crocodile.

Days 11-13: Chobe National Park, Botswana

The Park is home to the world's largest elephant population, currently extimated at 120,000. Begin with an exploration of the Savuti region, often described as the single best wildlife viewing area in Africa. Add sable, wildebeest, and warthog to your list of sightings. Then it's north to the Chobe River, with bands of elephants of 100 or more.

Days 14-15: Victoria Falls, Zambia

Our final full day of the tour is one with nearly infinite options. Consider whitewater rafting through Batoka Gorge below thundering Victora Falls. Or explore the falls, a mile wide and 300-feet high, from footpaths and viewpoints, opt for a bungee jump, tour a museum or take an elephant ride.
