Detailed breakdown

Days 1–3: Welcome to a Birdwatcher's Paradise | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Linyanti, Botswana

After arriving at Botswana's Maun Airport, you'll board a smaller charter plain for a quick flight into the bush. Touching down at Chobe Airstrip will awaken an overwhelming sense of excitement – this is real Africa! Your driver/guide will be waiting for you, ready to take you to your first camp on this eco-friendly luxury safari in Botswana. Of course, the transfer is also your first game drive so look out for Chobe's legendary elephant herds.

Your home for the next two nights, King's Pool, overlooks an alluring oxbow lagoon in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. The river alongside this luxury eco-safari camp is a sanctuary for a plethora of bird species and a magnet for elephants. The camp is 100% solar-powered and each of the eight luxurious tented suites feature a spacious bedroom area and a lounge that leads to a veranda: the perfect spot to soak in the magnificent views of a pristine wilderness area.

Spend your time discovering Linyanti's wildlife on morning and afternoon game drives, plus its nocturnal specialists on unique night game drives. Linyanti is known for its big elephant population as well as other game like lechwe, giraffe, buffalo and predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyaena. And then there are the birds!

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Your next air transfer takes you straight to Botswana's crown jewel: the Okavango Delta. Considered by many as one of Africa's last wilderness areas, the Delta is a feast for the senses.

Shortly after arriving at Vumbura Plains, you'll realise the emphasis at this eco-friendly luxury retreat is on ensuring you enjoy the most relaxing stay possible. Even the walls of your enormous private shower are constructed from floor-to-ceiling glass to allow you tranquil views of the surrounding plains. The camp's pool area is also fantastic for unwinding between meals or safari activities – whether you want to take a dip or simply lounge around the water with a good book.

Days 5–7: An aquatic paradise | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Another short flight takes you from the northern part of the Delta straight into the heart of this aquatic paradise. Marvel at your bird's-eye view of this vast inland delta's sprawling grassy plains, intricate waterways and residents like hippos, elephants and crocodiles. The first thing you'll notice when arriving at Jao Camp is its fresh and contemporary design. Considered one of best eco-friendly luxury safari camps in Botswana, Jao is located among islets fringed with riverine forests and floodplains filled with wildlife.

There is no better way to explore the 'Venice of safari' than on a mokoro (dugout canoe) ride. Discover the fascinating smaller creatures of the Delta like colourful frogs and waterbirds, while your guide gently poles your 'game drive vehicle' along papyrus-flanked waterways. A boating excursion, on the other hand, allows you to reach and explore the more distant waterways and deep channels where boisterous hippos rule.
