Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

This 10-day luxury community and wildlife safari takes you into two of Africa’s premier destinations, Botswana and Zambia. Plus, every booking of this itinerary will include a contribution of two stationery packs that will be donated to the children at Maunga Primary School, as part of our Positive Impact initiative.

Kick off your trip in the private and community-run Khwai Concession at Khwai Leadwood. This is where you will enjoy front-row seats to some of the best wildlife encounters on the continent while relaxing in safari-style luxury. You will then move on to the Linyanti Concession at Linyanti Bush Camp, bordering the iconic Chobe National Park. Elephant, buffalo and Africa’s big cats roam here in healthy numbers. You’ll then spend your last couple of days at Victoria Falls in Zambia, taking in awe-inspiring views of this natural spectacle, as well as tracking rhino on bush walks and catching famous African sunrises or sunsets on a boat cruise.

 

Why Is This a Trip with a Purpose?

  • African Bush Camps is one of a handful of companies that established their Foundation on the day they started their business. Every single bed night bought goes to these projects. They also contribute far more – over and above to communities, wildlife and conservation – behind the scenes. This is a really wonderful opportunity to meet people on the ground who are benefiting from tourism.
  • Visit a local village in Khwai, immersing yourself in the local community and their culture, as well as the opportunity to spend time with students at Khwai Pre-School.
  • In Linyanti, spend a day at Kachikau Primary School Disability Unit and the Vuche Vuche Basket Weaving Project.
  • Livingstone includes a visit to Maunga Clinic, a vital healthcare project, as well as Maunga Primary School.

Itinerary

Day to day

After landing at Maun Airport, you will be welcomed by a representative and board a charter flight that will take you to Khwai Leadwood for your first three nights. Set on the banks of the Khwai River, this area is celebrated for its incredible array of wildlife, and the lodge is elegantly designed in contemporary safari style. The river is the only thing that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and this private concession.

This is an exclusive safari experience where you will spend your days on morning, afternoon, and night game drives, as well as on walking safaris and mokoro excursions (water level dependant). This is truly one of Botswana’s most spectacular landscapes, which features vast grass plains, a patchwork of lagoons, shallow pans, and verdant woodland forests.

The Khwai Concession is completely community-run and you will have the opportunity to join Khwai village visits. Immersing yourself into the local community and their culture, you will be an active contributor to educational opportunities for the local school children at Khwai Pre-School.
