Secluded Botswana Safari

Our Flagship Wildlife Adventure into the Heart of Wildest Africa
Important Note: Some trips will utilize Toka Leya instead of The River Club while at Victoria Falls and Savuti Camp instead of Duma Tau in the Linyanti area. Please call our office for more details about specific departure dates and itineraries.

Days 1 & 2: Livingstone, Zambia & Victoria Falls
Our classic Botswana trip begins at The River Club, replete with Edwardian ambience, overlooking the Zambezi River, where hippos may entertain us on the banks. We take a sunset cruise following a guided tour of Victoria Falls, the world’s most astounding cataract. The profuse spray has created has created a rainforest on the rim of the gorge, with a network of walkways to explore that offer a variety of viewpoints over the falls.

Days 3 - 5: Chobe / Linyanti Discoverer Camp
By road and ferry we travel to Botswana’s Chobe National Park, known for its vast elephant herds—a population that exceeds 70,000! On our boat cruise down the Chobe River we sometimes see as many as 500 elephants in a single day. Water birds abound, including herons and storks, as well as hippos and crocodiles. This afternoon we fly to the private reserve of Linyanti, dramatic big-game country. Its tree-dotted plains are home to lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and wild dog, as well as tremendous elephant herds. We encounter wildlife in amazing proximity on 4x4 drives, guided walks and boat excursions on the Linyanti River. In the evenings we relax at our private camp, well-appointed tented accommodations evocative of an earlier safari era. Through the thorny acacia branches we see more stars than we ever dreamed of, scattered across an impossibly black sky.

Days 6 & 7: Duma Tau Camp, Linyanti
This morning we drive to Duma Tau Camp. The previously dry Savuti Channel is once again a hippo-filled stream, surrounded by open grassland that’s home to all the big predators and plains animals, including sable and roan antelope. The waterway in front of the camp draws large numbers of game, especially in the dry winter months. Many lions frequent the area as well as elephants in great numbers. The private verandas, nearly at eye-level, allow us to watch them from just feet away.

Days 8 & 9: Jacana Camp, Okavango Delta
Fly to Jacana Camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Where the river meets the Kalahari Desert, a green oasis sprawls amid the sands and dry savanna. The maze of canals and lagoons sustains a profusion of wildlife, and we explore the constantly shifting marsh by mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe. Islands and wetlands among the channels are home to many rare birds; we might observe wattled cranes, Pel’s fishing owls, jacanas, rails, crakes and moorhens. We may also see antelope and red lechwe browsing in the grasses.

Days 10 - 12: Tubu Tree Camp, Moremi Game Reserve
Travel by boat or safari vehicle to Tubu Tree Camp on the edge of Botswana's famous Moremi Game Reserve. On wildlife drives in open 4x4 vehicles we may encounter lion, leopard and cheetah as well as a host of hoofed game. Night drives reveal nocturnal species such as civet cat and caracal, and large predators that hunt at night.

Day 13: Maun / Depart

Our Botswana trip comes to an end when we depart by air for Maun, where we connect with flights home.
