From the floodplains of the Okavango Delta to the woodlands of Chobe National Park, Botswana’s diverse habitats provide the perfect settings for extraordinary safari excursions.
On the Botswana safari, encounter the abundant wildlife of the Okavango Delta, the biggest inland delta in the world. Here, the drama of life unfolds at every turn, whether during frequent game drives aboard safari vehicles designed to offer exceptional views or during water safaris by mokoros (dugout canoes) through flooded plains. The Mombo Concession in the Moremi Game Reserve is considered the country’s “predator capital,” and it reveals leopard, cheetah, prides of lion and the endangered African wild dog hunting for prey.
In the evening, retire to the region’s most elegant and intimate lodges and camps. Some lodges feature star beds for a night under the shimmering African skies — the perfect way to contemplate nature’s breathtaking beauty and the day’s discoveries on the Botswana safari.
A Zambia safari combines excellent big game viewing with luxurious lodges and some of the best guides in Africa. And although the raw beauty of Zambia’s vast reserves has long made them a favourite for safari connoisseurs, they don’t attract the crowds that cluster around sightings in the better-known parks in Africa – in fact the only bustle you’re likely to find is at the country’s most popular attraction: the spectacular Victoria Falls.
And while Zambia’s reserves are truly remote, the country’s capital Lusaka is thankfully well connected. Round off your safari in Zambia with a beach holiday on the lakeshore in neighbouring Malawi or opt for more big game viewing in Kenya or Tanzania. Simply chat so someone who’s been there – our Africa Safari Experts can offer first-hand advice and rock-solid recommendations, and will help you put together the perfect Zambia safari.
