BOTSWANA DELUXE SAFARI
8-Day Luxury Flying Safari to the Okavango Delta
Enjoy this luxury, tented camp safari in the heart of Botswana’s premier wildlife areas. As the name Botswana Deluxe Safari implies, the accommodations, food, service and guides on this safari are top notch. The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta system in the world and offers spectacular game viewing, including elephant, lion, zebra, leopard & giraffe. Diverse activities allow guests time on the water, on land and on foot.
Kwetsani Camp consists of six furnished ‘tree-house’ chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom, which are an open, airy accommodation of thatch, wood, glass and canvas. The camp offers excellent land and water activities dependent on the annual flood levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives, as well as breathtaking wildlife viewing by mokoro and boat are available.
DAYS 3 & 4 – MOREMI WILDLIFE RESERVE:After a morning activity and breakfast, fly by light aircraft to Chitabe Camp in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Enjoy two days of game drives and activities. Meals and overnights at Little Vumbura Camp. (B, L, D, Dr)
Little Vumbura’s 6 tented suites are connected to each other and the main lodge by wooden walkways, making the entire property have a storybook feel. Vumbura is one of the best places for viewing sable and wild dogs and the variety of local frogs is astounding as might be expected given all the water and wetlands in and near camp. A pool and reading areas overlook the floodplains and a stargazing deck it perfect for an after dinner drink under the night sky. Boat and Land Rover game viewing excursions are a staple of any stay here.
DAYS 5, 6, & 7 – LINYANTI WILDLIFE RESERVE: After a morning activity and breakfast, fly to Duma Tau in the Linyanti Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon activity. Enjoy two more days of game drives and activities in the Linyanti. Meals and overnights at Duma Tau Camp. (B, L, D, Dr)
Duma Tau (meaning ‘roar of the lion’) is a ten-roomed, luxury tented camp, in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, bordering the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The camp was rebuilt completely in 2012; it is raised off the ground to take advantage of the sweeping dramatic river views. Each en-suite tent is spacious, spreading out under a canvas roof, with a wraparound clear-storey window that allows for dramatic views of the riverfront, as well as the sounds of Africa.
DAY 8 – MAUN/DEPART: After breakfast and a final glimpse of the Wildlife reserve, you will fly by light aircraft to Maun Airport where you will take your connecting flight home.** (B)
