Look forward to marvelling at the natural wonders of Botswana and Zambia on this 9 night luxury safari. You’ll start this intrepid holiday with a stay close to the thundering Victoria Falls, before heading north to Botswana where you’ll explore the Okavango from different angles – the wildlife rich Linyanti for thrilling land-based game drives, then the watery world of the Delta itself.
Mighty Victoria Falls
First you will spend some time at one of our favourite, quirky lodges set on the banks of the Zambezi River. This privately owned and run lodge is the perfect base from which to spend a day visiting Victoria Falls and Livingstone Island which are just 15km downstream, as well as embark on canoe trips to spot wildlife. End your days with a sunset cruise, watching the world go by.
Next you’ll cross over the Botswana border where you will fly by light aircraft to the Linyanti Reserve. North of the Okavango, this pristine, private area is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from resident lions and African wild dog to large populations of elephant. Your stay at one of Botswana’s most intimate camps will have you mesmerised at incredible vistas over the Zibadianja Lagoon. Activities include day and night game drives, guided bush walks and boating on a spectacular pontoon.
On day six you’ll embark on the next leg of your journey. Fly directly over the Okavango by helicopter to the lodge’s private airstrip where you land in the ‘predator capital’ of Africa. Experience the beauty of the Delta where there will be an opportunity for both water-based safaris by mekoro and boat and land-based big game drives. See lions roaming the plains hunting for their prey and allow your expert guide to explain about this incredible environment and its captivating wildlife before stopping for sundowners and canapés to relax after action packed days.
