Created by a river which flows into the desert, Botswana's Okavango is the world's largest inland delta, attracting huge concentrations of wildlife. Explore it's waterways via a mokoro (a traditional dug out canoe) that people have been usingto navigate through the waterways of this premier wilderness area for ages. Be enthralled by elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, leopard and cheetah or use your binoculars to spot some of the 450 different species of birds on show in the delta.

You'll also have the opportunity to explore Namibia's Caprivi Strip, a lush green heartland characterised by three perennial rivers. The strip is home to huge herds of buffalo, elephant and a wide range of predators, including lion, leopard and hyena.

A Botswana and Namibia family safari is the ideal way to create everlasting memories as a family.

Welcome to Botswana!

On arrival at Maun International Airport, you will be met and transferred through the Makgadikgadi Pans. The park, populated by up to 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators, offers you the chance to experience the exhilaration of seeing large concentrations of game and the resultant predator interaction. Your lodge, Leroo La Tau offers a raised hide above the river where you can enjoy the spectacular wildlife sightings that we’ve come to expect in this part of Botswana. You will be staying at this lodge for the following two nights, including all meals and game activities.

Off to the Okavango Delta

After breakfast and your morning activity, you will be collected from the lodge and flown to either Camp Okavango or Xugana Island Lodge. The seasonal flooding of the Okavango River spills across the parched Kalahari landscape, producing a gigantic inland sea that is peppered with lush islands and brimming with wildlife. One of these camps will be your home for the next two nights including meals and game activities.

Cruising the Waterways of the Okavango Delta

You know you are in Africa when the camp manager announces at dinner that guests are requested to notify your guide when retiring to your room for the evening as a hippo is grazing on the garden path leading to your room. One of the very few places in the world where nature and human presence are in harmony. You will be spending two nights at one of these camps including all your meals and activities.

The area is renowned for its population of bull elephant and for the unique interaction of the resident predator species.

You will spend the following two nights at this lodge including all meals and activities.
