Luxury Land and Sea Safari in Botswana and Mozambique (10 days)

Experience the Okavango Delta and the tropical Indian Ocean island of Benguerra for the best of both the bush and the beach

This journey takes you first to Botswana’s Okavango Delta, where your peaceful lodge is camouflaged among wild palms and gnarled fig trees. Join a game drive or a bush walk, or just unwind. From there you’ll fly to Benguerra Island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mozambique to enjoy its sandy beaches and warm ocean. You'll have a chance to go diving or snorkeling, or just to relax in the romantic surroundings of a lodge that combines African character with echoes of the area’s Arabic past.
