Botswana Suggested Itinerary - Enjoy a 5 day Okavango Delta safari spending 2 nights at a water camp in the Delta and 2 nights at a land camp in the Moremi - luxury Botswana safari.

Botswana offers the visitor a complete African Safari or vacation. This wild and beautiful country is one of the few places in Africa that remains completely unspoilt and animals roam freely.

delta
The beautiful Okavango Delta is an inland waterway with a most unusual environment comprising of diverse habitats, where many species of mammals, birds and fish reside.

On the eastern fringe of the Delta lies the Moremi Game Reserve, famous for its beauty and intensity of wildlife, including herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe and antelope. Another most unusual area is the Linyanti Region, where in the dry season, you can see hundreds of buffalo with a pride of lion in pursuit.

For the best Botswana safari experience it is recommended that visitors spend some time at a 'water' camp and some time at a 'land' camp. The focus at the water camps is on traditional Mokoro canoe safaris, whilst at the land camps the majority of activities are conducted in open, safari vehicles.

Our recommendation is a minimum of 4 nights on safari with 2 nights at your choice of camp in each of these unique areas. We also offer combination camps where land and water based safari activities are available should you be short of time.

Explore the labyrinth of lagoons and lakes that comprise the Okavango Delta, glide through the waters of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, meters from hippo and crocodile. See wild dog while game viewing in the Moremi Reserve.
