Botswana Safari

The Great Wing Safari: Botswana – South Africa

10 days/ 7 nights

One of Africa’s ultimate safari destinations, Botswana is a safari paradise and a truly wild destination. Experience its beauty with your host, The Living Desert’s President and CEO, Allen Monroe. You’ll visit this land where beasts roam free on a rotating circuit via dry game drives, canoeing wet safaris, and walking tours. Your 10-day adventure begins with your arrival in Johannesburg, South Africa, where you’ll have a chance to rest until your morning flight to Maun, Botswana. You’ll meet your bush pilot who’ll provide you with a bird’s eye view of “Africa’s Last Wildlife Refuge.” At your safari lodge, the Chobe Game Lodge, you’ll enjoy lunch and an evening game activity. Your 4th day will include a game drive in a 4 x 4 open vehicle as you take in hippo, buffalo, lion and antelope. You’ll also view game on the Chobe River from maneuverable boats. Day 5 you’ll enjoy the morning game activity in Chobe and then catch a flight to the Okavango Delta. While at Camp Okavango, there will be two scheduled activities per day that may include a canoe or boat ride, or a walking safari. Then on to the Moremi Wildlife Reserve where you’ll stay in African-style tents raised on a teak platform. Game drives and Xaxanaka Lagoon rides by motorboat will be available. Expect to see lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog. On day 9, you’ll make your way back from Moremi, to Maun and then finally Johannesburg. You’ll arrive back in the US on Day 10 with memories to last a lifetime.
