Botswana is a fascinating world, from the thriving waterways of the Okavango Delta to the mighty Kalahari Desert's ancient baobabs and meerkats, to the Chobe National Park, where immense herds of elephants can be found, Botswana offers you equal parts adventure and comfort.

Tour text information 

In 2013, a large part of the area formerly known as the “Caprivi Strip” (Namibia) was renamed Zambezi. This region stretches out like an arm between Angola, Zambia, and Botswana, touching Zimbabwe at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. It’s a tropical array of wildlife and bird species and offers great fishing.

 

The area is characterized by an abundance of water, wetlands, large floodplains and thick Mopani woodland. All the parks are well worth a visit and, with over 600 bird species, are a real paradise for bird watchers. Game is plentiful and hippos and crocodiles laze around on the riverbanks.

Some of the locations we visit during our tour:
