This itinerary is for the active traveler looking for an immersive experience in some of Africa’s more remote safari destinations. Highlights include incredible wildlife viewing on foot, by boat, by air, and in a vehicle. Come along to see some of the wildest areas in Botswana and Zambia.
Your trip begins in the Mopane Woodlands on the edge of the Okavango Delta. You’ll witness animals drinking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. A place where herds of elephants, giraffes, zebras, and rarer species like roan and eland constantly roam.
You’ll then sleep out under the stars in a luxury treehouse with fully ensuite platforms safely elevated above the ground. Next, spend an afternoon “elephant cage diving,” which is the aptly named elephant hide nearby where you’ll get up close to Africa’s largest animal.
End your trip in the heart of the world-famous Okavango Delta. A place where you’ll encounter huge herds of elephants and buffalo and likely prides of lions. If you’re lucky, you may also see leopards and endangered wild dogs, who are Africa’s most efficient hunters.
Your camp is located on a riverine system filled with water from the annual floods. The private game reserve offers maximum flexibility for night drives, off-roading, guided walks, and mokoro canoeing.
From Botswana, continue up to Zambia for an epic adventure visiting the iconic South Luangwa Valley (home to the Zambia Predator Project), Liuwa Plains (one of the most vital areas managed by African Parks), and the Zambezi River Valley (home to the Zambezi Joy Society).
