This is a very comprehensive and luxury tour of Botswana.

You will discover in depth its many extraordinary habitats, landscapes and wildlife from the exclusive Okavango Delta reserve and predator capital of Africa, the Mombo Concession, to the very unique lunar landscapes of the Makgadikgadi pans.

Explore in only the finest style why this is Africa's most exclusive and remote safari destination, staying at the top camps with expert guides so you get the very most out of this trip.

Beginning at the Victoria Falls, the landmark rendezvous of the first pioneers, you'll then explore the Okavango from every angle: the wildlife rich Linyati for thrilling land-based game drives, then more water-based (canoe / boat) safaris in the Delta itself, followed by the exciting big predators of the Mombo. Finally, relax, meet the Kalahari Bushmen and explore the vast open spaces of the Makgadikgadi salt plans and grass plains.
