On arrival, you’ll be greeted and escorted to our safari aircraft for the thrilling transfer flight into the Kalahari. This is the best way to take in the dramatically shifting topography as we take you across the floodplains south of the Okavango Delta into the sweeping expanse of the Kalahari Desert - the largest unbroken stretch of sand on the planet! You’ll be met at the airstrip and taken to the intimate Kalahari Plains Camp in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. There’ll be time to settle in to your stylish tented suite before setting out with our expert safari guide on your first game-viewing adventure.  Meals D
 

At the core of the vast Kalahari Desert, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is one of the largest protected areas on the continent. Amidst its sweeping vistas of acacia savannah and scrub-covered dunes, a fascinating spectrum of plants and animals have successfully adapted to living in these harsh conditions. Impressive herds of springbok, wildebeest and gemsbok are constantly foraging for food as predators stalk their next meal. These carnivores encompass small mammals like the Cape fox and honey badger as well as hyena, cheetah and the magnificent black-maned Kalahari lion! In addition to today’s game drives and nature walk, spending time with San Bushmen offers insight into their unique culture. Meals B+L+D

We’ll take you to the airstrip this morning for the thrilling safari transfer flight via Maun into the heart of the Okavango Delta c. This is the largest inland delta system on Earth and rightly considered to be one of the most rewarding wilderness areas in Africa. Filled with water channels, lagoons and islands, the Okavango sustains a huge diversity of flora and fauna. On arrival, you’ll be met and escorted to your choice of safari camp; both Chitabe Camp and Mombo Camp are set on riverine islands within private game concessions teeming with wildlife. You’ll arrive in time for an evening game-viewing adventure with our expert safari guide.  Meals B+L+D
 

The grassy floodplains and riverine forests of our private concessions draw a wide variety of plains game including giraffe, buffalo, elephant, impala, tsessebe and lechwe. In turn, all of these foraging and grazing animals attract large numbers of carnivores. The result… Morning and afternoon game drives that promise exhilarating wildlife encounters including the Big Five: elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros and Cape buffalo. Back at camp, you’ll sit down to congenial meals freshly prepared, attentively served and accompanied by house wines and spirits.  Meals B+L+D
 

Another safari transfer flight promises more cinematic views over the forests, grasslands and waterways of the Delta. With luck and sharp eyes, you might even see grazing herds below. Flying to your next luxury safari camp, you’ll be met and escorted to either Seba Camp or Jao Camp, both set on game-rich private concessions. Settle in to your spacious elevated tent and then join our guide for another exciting wildlife adventure. Tonight’s dinner is again complemented by your choice of house wines, spirits and beverages.  Meals B+L+D
 

With lifelong skill, your safari guide will use his Ngashi, a long wooden pole, to steer and propel your Mokoro canoe through the narrow channels of the Okavango Delta. Drifting in near complete silence puts you at one with the environment, making it all the easier to spot the animals that come to the river to quench their thirst. Tsessebe, red lechwe, impala and zebra often graze at water’s edge. Our private concessions are also famed for their birding opportunities, with hundreds of resident species like Wattled Crane, Pel’s Fishing Owl and Rosy-Throated Longclaw. Seasonal fishing and thrilling night game drives will enhance your safari adventures.  Meals B+L+D

Take to the skies over the Okavango Delta and fly to our ultra-private reserve bordering Chobe National Park. With its woodland habitats and ancient floodplains, the remote landscapes of the Linyanti Reserve are home to an amazing density and variety of big game including vast herds of elephants, wildebeest, zebra, reedbuck and kudu. The Linyanti expanse is also a favored hunting ground for predators including lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah and African wild dog. Upon touching down at the airstrip, you’ll be met and escorted to your choice of luxury safari camp: Savuti or Kings Pool.  Settle in to your luxury tented room and join our sharp-eyed guide for another heart-pounding safari expedition.  Meals B+L+D
 

The sheer volume of animals that roam across the greater Chobe eco-system and our private 300,000 acre reserve make this one of the best places in Africa to encounter a wide variety of herbivores and predators. That is exactly what you’ll do as you set out with our expert safari guides on game-viewing drives and expeditions on the Linyanti River or Savute Channel. In between these exciting adventures, you can take a refreshing dip in the pool or relax on the verandah as you keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife drawn to the nearby watercourses. Congenial dining is enhanced by complimentary house wines, spirits and beverages.  Meals B+L+D

From Linyanti to Victoria Falls

At the conclusion of your 9-day Visions of Botswana safari, we include your safari transfer flight from the Linyanti Reserve to Kasane, where you’ll be met and transferred to your choice of luxury accommodations. Toka Leya Camp features 12 under-canvas suites set in a pristine forest along the banks of the Zambezi River. At the River Club, set on the landscaped grounds of a mid-century Edwardian estate, guests will find 11 lavishly-appointed chalets with private river-view verandahs.
 
This evening, join our sharp-eyed river guide for a sunset cocktail cruise, and watch for waterbuck, kudu, baboons and other animals as they come to the riverbank to graze and quench their thirst.  Both Toka Leya and River Club offer elegant dining overlooking the Zambezi - with complimentary house wines, spirits and beverages.  Meals D

Day
2

Mighty Victoria Falls

David Livingstone was the first European to visit the Falls and named it after Queen Victoria. But locals still call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Smoke that Thunders. As our expert guide takes you along scenic paths through the forest alive with birdlife, you’ll hit all the best vantage points on both the Zambia and Zimbabwe sides of Victoria Falls - including Knife Edge Bridge and a heart-pounding view over the thundering Devil’s Cataract. By tour’s end, we think you’ll agree that the local name best captures the dramatic spray and deafening roar of the mighty Zambezi River as it plunges more than 300 feet over a mile-wide chasm!
 
Guest staying at Toka Leya Camp can join a second excursion this afternoon: Go rhino tracking, fish the Zambezi River, explore the lively town of Livingstone, or visit a nearby village. At the River Club, guests can delight in a free afternoon – playing croquet on the lawn, going for a swim, or simply lounging on your verandah and maybe keeping one eye open for hippos wallowing in the river. Meals B+L+D
 
Note: Water levels on the Zambezi River are lower from August to November and the vantage points you’ll visit during these months may differ.
