For thirteen days, you will be in the capable hands of a highly experienced and trained private guide who will take you through some of the most spectacular regions of Botswana, from desert landscapes to the waterways of the Okavango Delta. Whether you’re in search of Africa’s prized wildlife, floating serenely on a traditional mokoro, or quad biking through moon-like salt pans, this journey is about losing yourself in some of the most remote corners of the world.
You begin with a light aircraft flight over the Kalahari Desert, spending your first few days in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. To add to an already spectacular itinerary, you will meet the San people or Bushmen (indigenous hunter-gatherers that are the first cultures of Southern Africa) and be taught their desert-adapted skills as well as listen to the riveting stories of an ancient culture. It’s then on to the Makgadikgadi Pans, the vestiges of a superlake and where salt on the surface glints in the harsh rays of the African sun – this is where you will revel in photography, stargazing and a myriad of other activities.
The last leg of your journey is in the Okavango Delta, known as ‘the river that never finds the sea’. This is arguably the world’s most untouched oasis with an impressive number of wildlife, including the re-introduced black rhino and the endangered African wild dog. Here you will enjoy a sky safari in a helicopter over the region, and gliding along the channels of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in a traditional mokoro.
