BOTSWANA SAFARI FOCUS

  • Visit Spectacular Victoria Falls-one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
  • Chobe National Park Safari – The activities alternate between land based and water based game viewing.
  • The Okavango Delta, hunted by the Bushmen as long as 10,000 years ago, can still be described as one of the most beautiful and unique of all of Africa’s wildlife refuges
  • Game drives in Moremi Game Reserve, bush walks and ‘mokoro’ rides will offer you the excitement of a Botswana Safari.
  • Chobe Game Reserve Botswana

    The Chobe Game Reserve is a remarkable wildlife area due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. The spectacle of all the animals coming to drink and frolic at the water’s edge is one to behold, particularly in the dry season (May – Oct) where water is scarce away from the river. It is an area famous for its abundance of elephants, a variety of predators and, in addition, herds of buffalo and roan and sable antelope.

    The spectacular Chobe sunsets alone are worth a visit to the area.

  • Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

    The Victoria Falls are one of the natural Seven Wonders of the World and the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerising spectacle. Water flow over the Falls varies throughout the year. The river’s annual flood season is February to May when the spray can reach a height of over 400m.

    Water levels start dropping in August and are at their lowest in October – December when much of the rocky face becomes dry. At times of low water, the falls are best viewed from the Zimbabwe side or from Livingstone Island.

  • Okavango Delta

    Splendid views and amazing safaris in the heart of one of the most dramatic protected areas in Africa, make a stay at Okavango Delta an unforgettable experience.

    Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta system in the world filled with water channels, lagoons and islands. Activities vary from mokoro river excursions, motorised boat safaris, game drives in open safari vehicles or walking safaris.

  • Khwai Community Area & Moremi Game Reserve

     Wedged between the attractions of Chobe National Park to the east and Moremi Game Reserve to the south, Khwai exists as a significant big game destination of its own.

    During your time here, you’ll spend most days exploring the narrow Khwai River, which forms the natural boundary to the Moremi Game Reserve on the south. The Khwai River is a beacon for wildlife and plays host to leopards, lions and crocodiles competing with wild dogs for a midday meal of impala.
