This 15-day safari balances a selection of Botswana’s top lodges offering some of Africa’s best game viewing with the tropical island paradise of the Quirimbas Archipelago, off the coast of Mozambique.
Your safari begins with two nights at Kings Pool in the hidden gem of northern Botswana’s Linyanti wilderness, which borders the Chobe National Park. This royal retreat is home to an excellent diversity of game, with large herds of elephant congregating in the dry season and plenty of predators year-round. Your next 2-night stop is on the outer edges of the Okavango Delta, the Vumbura Plains. Explore by vehicle, boat and on foot in this area famous for its wild dog packs and birdlife. Your final game-viewing destination is in the heart of the Delta, on the legendary Chief’s Island, where you spend two nights at Mombo Camp. Made famous in wildlife documentaries, this area offers one of Africa’s best predator encounters on twice-daily game drives.
Overnight in South Africa on your way to Mozambique for one unforgettable night at the Fairlawns Hotel & Spa in Johannesburg. Recharge, revive and reflect on your wilderness experience in the sumptuous comfort of this boutique hotel. The next morning, schedule flights transport you from Johannesburg to Pemba on the coast of Mozambique and on to the Quirimbas Archipelago.
Lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Mozambique has a treasure trove of tucked-away resorts. One of these is your destination for seven nights of barefoot bliss: Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort, a secluded private getaway where simplicity and elegance rule. Unwind on the postcard-perfect beaches, dive at top sites, and feast on the bounty of the ocean. However you spend your days, you will find yourself rested and relaxed in this sliver of paradise.
This is a simply unforgettable safari that delivers the best of Botswana’s wilderness and Mozambique’s tropical islands in one glorious tour.
