Wild Botswana and Zimbabwe Safari (10 days)

Tour the pristine habitats of Botswana and Zimbabwe's finest wildlife-rich assets with the twist of refined luxury

Discover the finest wildlife areas of Botswana and Zimbabwe on this sensational Southern African safari. Your tour begins in the little-visited Khwai Community Area along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. Once the natural bounty of Botswana begins to make itself apparent, you'll jet off to the largest inland delta in the world; the Okavango. This flourishing waterlogged oasis features countless meandering waterways and crystal clear lagoons studded with water lilies, as well as fertile floodplains and reeded islands inhabited with abundant wildlife.

You'll end your journey in Hwange National Park, the wildest and largest of Zimbabwe's national parks. Elephants abound here and are certainly not opposed to posing for the perfect snapshot. You'll encounter the endangered African wild dog and enjoy the warm hospitality that Zimbabwe is known for. 

Round this all off with glamorous tented camping and luxury and your journey is complete.
