This luxury safari explores three contrasting areas in the Okavango and Linyanti and finishes with a night in Victoria Falls. Departures are daily. All accommodation, the twice daily game activities at the camps, all inter-camp transfers by air and the road transfer from Kasane to Victoria Falls are included. The safari can be run in either direction, for any duration to suit individual requirements.
This is a sample of how an eight day safari would run:
1 & 2: OKAVANGO - LAND ACTIVITY CAMP
On arrival in Maun, guests are met by a representative of The
Safari Company and transferred to the charter aircraft for the
flight into their first camp. Activities here center on the
game drives as well as walks in some of the Okavango's most
scenic and private areas. The choice of camps includes Chitabe,
Chitabe Trails, Mombo, Little Mombo, Vumbura
or Duba Plains. Jao or Kwetsani make great
"land activity" camps from October to April.
3 & 4: OKAVANGO - WATER ACTIVITY OR MULTI-ACTIVITY CAMP
Guests are flown from their first camp, to a contrasting sector
of the Okavango to enjoy the activities on offer there. Mokoro-ing,
boating, fishing, walks - and at some camps, game drives are
on offer. The choice of camps includes Jao, Kwetsani,
Little Vumbura or Xigera.
5 & 6: THE LINYANTI OR SAVUTI
From the Okavango, guests are flown northeast to the Chobe /
Linyanti waterways. This is a completely contrasting region
to the Okavango Delta. Activities are enjoyed around the Savuti
Channel or Linyanti River on boats, vehicles or from hides.
Choose from DumaTau, Kings Pool, Linyanti Tented
Camp or Savuti Camp.
7: VICTORIA FALLS
Guests are flown from their camp to Kasane where they board
vehicles for 85km drive to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. On arrival,
guests are checked into their hotel on a bed and breakfast basis,
leaving them free to eat where they please and take in any of
the wonderful activities available in the falls. You might want
to sign up for a one day white water rafting, elephant back
riding etc, or you want to enjoy the Victoria Falls at a more
leisurely pace, then you need to book into the falls for two
nights. Hotels to choose from include the Victoria Falls Hotel,
the Ilala Lodge, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and for those who
seek a bit more privacy, The River Club, which is situated
across the river in Zambia. The costings have been based on
the Ilala Lodge.

Game viewing by open 4x4 vehicle, boat cruises, mokoro excursions,
Depending on what you would like to see and do, will dictate
the best time of the year to visit Botswana. The winter months
(May to August) are good for game viewing where the summer months
(September to April) offer spectacular scenery and also the
best birdlife as the migratory birds return from up north (central
Africa and Europe) to breed in their thousands in specific places
such as the Okavango Delta.
