Botswana Made Easy

Botswana

Botswana is a wildlife enthusiast’s dream destination. Home to the magnificent Okavango Delta, recently named UNESCO’s 1,000th World Heritage Site, this huge and unique eco-system is a maze of lagoons, lakes and channels holding a plethora of flora and fauna. This itinerary will take you to three of Botswana’s essential safari destinations, your light aircraft flights transporting you with cheerful guides on hand to welcome you at every arrival. Our carefully selected choice of accommodation promises a genuine and peaceful safari experience with complete privacy and comfort.

The green season is becoming a popular time to travel to Botswana and experience a slightly unpredictable but more exciting safari. It is the perfect time for photographers and bird watchers to visit the lush green bush as many migrant bird species make their way to the Delta. As there is an abundance of food and water, the green season is also known as the baby boom season with it being the best time to see the emerging tiny warthogs, infant zebra and baby impala.

Once you have arrived in Maun, via Johannesburg, you will be transferred to Leroo La Tau located along the western border of the Makagadikgadi Pans National Park. Perched on top of cliffs overlooking the Boteti River and Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, this stunning location rewards guests with unsurpassed views of the spectacular scenery and wildlife. The 12 spacious thatch and timber chalets are well spaced along the 1.5 km of riverfront, the simple and elegant interiors perfectly complementing the views from your private wooden veranda. The Boteti River, also known as The Returning River, has been flowing since 2008 after two decades of drought with it now a vital water source for the migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest. Look out for the wildlife collecting around the riverfront, including vultures, hippos, ostriches, giraffes and zebras, in a 4 x 4 vehicle or a motorboat.

Fly to the Moremi Game Reserve in northern Botswana for your two night stay in Camp Xakanaxa. Relax into one of the 12 classic Meru style tents gazing upon the views of the Xakanaxa Lagoon from your private viewing deck, shaded by the towering trees above. Located in the heart of the game reserve, along the banks of Khwai River, guests can enjoy action packed year-round game viewing on both land and water. Boasting one of the most diverse ecosystems rich with wildlife, your game activities will be filled with herds of elephant, buffalo and wildebeest alongside the predators of lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena.

For your last safari destination, fly to the heart of the Okavango Delta landing on the idyllic and remote Nxaragha island. The Delta is constantly changing and evolving, islands and lagoons appearing and disappearing. The one constant is the extensive range of flora and fauna, with the area overflowing wildlife. Whether you take to the waters on a mokoro or motorboat or explore on foot with a guided nature walks, your time spent in this wildlife wonderland is an amazing way to finish your Botswana safari adventure.
