On this trip, you’ll experience Botswana’s two most popular safari destinations by land and water. Hop on horseback in Maun and take a ride through the vast plains, passing wildebeest, elephants, and giraffes on your way. At the Okavango Delta, we have arranged stays at two different luxury lodges for you so you have the chance to explore two different parts of this expansive wetland ecosystem. Boat safaris, mokoro canoe trips, game drives, and bush walks will offer you ample opportunity to become familiar with the Delta’s rich flora and fauna. Having had your fill, leave this beautiful water world behind to explore the desert landscapes of the Kalahari. In addition to oryx antelope, wildebeest, giraffe, and elephant, you’ll meet friendly meerkats and have a chance to sleep out under a canopy of stars every night.

Like all of our Africa trips, you can personalize this Botswana safari to your preferences. Contact us to receive a tailor-made itinerary from our experts which is 100% in line with your wishes.
