Taking in Botswana’s classic wildlife destinations, this overland adventure promises to deliver amazing game viewing and stunning scenery. Beginning at the edge of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, you explore its winding waterways by traditional canoe before transferring to a 4X4 safari vehicle for game drives in the Moremi Game Reserve. Elephants and big cats are among the most keenly anticipated sightings but this is also a landscape of buffalo and antelope herds, hippos and crocodiles plus stunning bird life.
The heavyweight game viewing continues as you drive north to the Chobe River, home to some of the best dry-season safaris in Africa. This is where tens of thousands of elephant congregate along the river along with great numbers of other animals and their predators. You can sit back on a river boat with a cold drink and enjoy it play out in front of you. The tour ends with suitable drama: the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ is the local name for Victoria Falls, famous as the adventure capital of the region. You have a sunset cruise on the Zambezi to look forward to plus time to view the mile-wide waterfall and see why Victoria Falls holds such an allure.
Accommodation on this tour is a combination of friendly guest lodges and hotels plus tented camps when you are on safari – sturdy walk-in tents with a bed and bathroom already set up when you arrive. Rugged but rewarding and with plenty of comfort, this tour is the perfect way to see Botswana’s best safari destinations and Victoria Falls for budget-conscious travellers of any age.
