This fertile but landlocked African nation country offers a truly unique wildlife experience, with many of the main game viewing camps and regions connected by scenic flights rather than road transfers.
Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta as well as the Central Kalahari Reserve and is easily accessed via Johannesburg. Alternatively Kasane, close to the border with Zambia, is the ideal point for accessing Chobe National Park, which can be combined with a visit to Victoria Falls.
In the Okavango a 'makoro' canoe safari is one of the highlights and all lodges offer this type of adventure. As you glide through the many channels and waterways you can observe all manner of game including elephants, hippos and many species of bird. Your safari guide will accompany you and point out wildlife along the way.
In the north, Chobe National Park is famed for its rolling grasslands and prolific wildlife, including huge herds of elephant. The contrast between this and the lush and fertile Okavango Delta is quite remarkable.
A camping safari is probably one of the most thrilling ways to experience this fascinating country. Exchange tales around the campfire with fellow travellers and fall asleep to the sounds of the African bush. Early starts and early nights are all part of the cycle of your days here as you fall into the rhythm of nature.
