Okavango Delta, Kalahari & Makgadikgadi / From Desert to Delta

Explore Botswana’s key ecosystems and environments on this nine night African adventure. Encounter the mighty elephant as you participate in bathing, training or simply walking with these magnificent creatures. Traverse the wetlands of the Okavango Delta to spot big game and smaller, more elusive species before heading to the Makgadikgadi salt pans, a relic of one of the world’s largest super lakes. Here you can view the wildlife from the comfort of your private deck, take a walking safari or even explore on quad bike, looking out for black-maned Kalahari lions, brown hyena and entertaining meerkats.
