Is This Trip for Me?
This safari takes you to three of Botswana’s star conservation areas. You’ll begin in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve with its red sand dunes, salt pans, open plains and big skies. This is the second largest game reserve in the world, a vast 52,800 square kilometres.
From the arid or semi-arid Kalahari, you’ll fly to a completely different world. In the Okavango Delta you’ll get a chance to enjoy game drives on land, but also to pole through the permanent waterways in a mokoro (dug-out canoe) ride on the lookout for elephant, hippo and a bounty of birds both migratory and resident.
The Kwando Linyanti wetlands is the last of the three wilderness areas on your journey. It’s a world of papyrus and reed swamps, grasslands and riverine forests, and home to elephant, lion, leopard, wild dog, zebra and giraffe.
This safari is best enjoyed during the green season (from November to March), where the true magic of Botswana’s greenery can be felt. You can expect plenty of newborn animals and reductions in safari package costs.
