In this adventure, you will savor the natural diversity of Botswana. Encounter vast herds of zebra and other wildlife on the Savute Channel, also known as “the river that flows in both directions,” which for generations has given life to the western section of Chobe National Park. Stay on a private island in one of the Okavango Delta’s permanent lagoons. These lagoons and surrounding lands are resplendent with wildlife, from diminutive endemic frogs to majestic elephants.
Finally, explore a completely different landscape at Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, which stands among the world’s biggest salt flats. The mineral-rich grasses on the edges of the pan support abundant wildlife. Elephants, lions, and many kinds of antelope are easy to spot here, but don’t overlook the smaller things—the park’s meerkat colonies are sure to charm you.
Finally, explore the verdant riverine forests and fertile lagoons of Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta. This inland oasis attracts wildlife from hundreds of miles around, leading to spectacular sightings of hippo, leopards, lechwe antelope, and more.
