BOTSWANA ULTIMATE SAFARI
8-Day Luxury Flying Safari to the Okavango Delta and Linyanti
If Tina Turner wanted to sing “Simply the Best” about a Botswana tour, it would surely be about this safari. On our 8-day Botswana Ultimate Safari you will enjoy the most luxurious, comfortable and exciting safari in the heart of Botswana’s premier wildlife areas. These camps, the finest in the country, combine superbly designed architecture with the warm comforts of home and outstanding service. The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta system in the world and offers spectacular game viewing including elephant, lion, zebra, leopard & giraffe. Activities are diverse allowing guests time on the water, land, and on foot.
DAYS 1 & 2 – LINYANTI: Upon arrival in Maun, after clearing customs, you will be met and transferred by light aircraft to Kings Pool. Meals and overnights here. (D, DR)
Kings Pool Camp is located in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, a vast private concession in the northern part of Botswana, on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. Nine luxurious well-appointed tents of canvas and thatch each have a large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and ‘sala’. The spacious en-suite bathrooms are tiled with double showers and hand-basins as well as an outdoor shower for those who wish to shower close to nature! Activities include day and night game drives and walks, while boat cruises (water levels allowing) offer spectacular viewing.
DAYS 3 & 4 – OKAVANGO DELTA: Fly by light aircraft to Jao Camp. Enjoy two days of game drives and water activities. Overnights here. (B, L, D, DR)
Jao Camp lies in the southern side of the plains, an area with beautiful islands fringed with riverine forests. The camp has nine spacious, beautiful tents, each individually handcrafted. These canvas and thatched rooms are situated beneath a canopy of shady trees and have en-suite facilities, as well as an outdoor shower. Built on raised decks, each has a private sala for afternoon siestas and offers wonderful views of the surrounding floodplains. In addition to the lounge and dining area, there are two plunge pools and an outdoor boma for dining under the stars. Mokoros, boat trips, fishing, nature walks, day and night game drives and birding are usually on offer all year round.
DAYS 5, 6 & 7 – MOREMI: After breakfast, you’ll enjoy a morning activity. In the afternoon, fly to Little Mombo Camp, the premier camp in Botswana. Enjoy lunch and an afternoon activity. You’ll spend three nights here. (B, L, D, DR)
Little Mombo is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief’s Island within the Moremi Game Reserve and is arguably the best big game viewing area in all of Africa. The camp is a smaller and more intimate camp than its sister, Mombo Camp, to which it is connected via a raised walkway. Little Mombo is built under a shady canopy and has three luxurious rooms under canvas with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers. The camp overlooks the surrounding floodplains which offer some of the best big game viewing in the Okavango Delta. Your own sala, large veranda and lounge area provide ample place to relax and enjoy the view. The camp also has its own dining and lounge area and sparkling pool.
DAY 8 – MAUN/DEPART: After breakfast and a final glimpse of the reserve, you’ll fly by light aircraft to Maun Airport where you’ll take your connecting flight home. (B)
