TRAVEL TIPS FOR BOTSWANA TRAVEL TIPS FOR MAURITIUS

LET US GUIDE YOU...

This is the classic Botswana fly-in Safari, combining all of the best elements of a safari in Botswana. The Savute region is (for want of a better phrase) the 'posh' end of Chobe National Park and the scene of some of the best safari action in Africa. This is the home of the lions that have learned to hunt Elephants, as seen on David Attenborough's Planet Earth!

And then the Okavango Delta, unique as the only inland delta in the world. Explore the waterways & channels in a traditional mokoro (canoe) or powerboat, and look for the animals from a unique perspective.

This itinerary is priced on using the camps of Desert & Delta Safaris, surely one of the friendliest companies in Africa, but there are alternatives too. Botswana is a very special destination.

If you wanted to extend your safari experience in Botswana, why not travel south to the Okavango Delta to discover the secrets of the wetland eco-system, or visit the Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, described by the local tribesmen - ‘the smoke that thunders’.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

"I would just like to say a big thank you for arranging our recent trip which was a great success. If and when we go again to Africa we would certainly come back to you, thank you."

MARCH 2014

"We had a wonderful time in Botswana. Much of the credit and thanks go to you for your meticulous planning, and Desert & Delta Safaris for their attention to detail. In the whole four weeks of travelling nothing went wrong and we never felt unsure of anything. It is certainly a beautiful part of the world and somewhere I am sure we will make a return visit."
