This remarkable adventure includes three superb lodges set in three exceptional locations, allowing you to explore the best of Botswana’s wild attractions. All transfers are via light aircraft ensuring you see more in less time. The lodges are handpicked for their superb settings, friendly staff and authentic safari ambience.
Discover the lush Okavango from two locations. Enter a world of swaying palm trees, grassy floodplains and meandering waterways, a veritable haven for wildlife in the midst of the Kalahari thirstland. Glide silently along papyrus-lined waterways in a traditional canoe, cruising past elegant African jacana as they hunt among the water-lilies. Then explore the deeper channels by motorboat, slipping past huffing hippos and primeval crocodiles basking on sand banks.
Fly to the haunting grasslands of the Savuti – a rugged wilderness renowned for its dense herds of plains game and feuding lion prides. Each November, a migration spectacle unfolds as vast herds of zebra move south from the permanent waters of the Linyanti to foal in the Savuti ahead of the summer rains (December to March). The herds thrive here, feasting on tender grass shoots and raising stout foals ahead of the return journey to the Linyanti in autumn.
This abundance of browsers provides a banquet for predators. It is in the Savuti that you find the densest concentration of lion, and the opportunity to see a hunting pride in action. Their eternal enemies, hyena, are never far behind, along with scavengers like jackals and vultures. It is a stage set for high theatre, from the endearing antics of zebra foals to the terrific skill of Africa’s reigning predators.
