The ultimate Botswana Safari and Seychelles private Island experience
Safari Overview
An exciting Okavango wildlife safari at Vumbura Plains and Mombo Concession in Botswana, witnessing all of Africa’s legendary big mammals in private wilderness regions.
At the end of your safari, visit the Seychelles and relax on the Indian Ocean’s finest beaches and world-class private island resorts.

The heart of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, is the Moremi Game Reserve. All the major habitats and ecotones of the Okavango are preserved here. These private concessions offer quality safari experiences. Mombo Camp is situated on the northern tip of Chief's Island and is within the Moremi. The Vumbura Reserve offers both land and water activities in a park that has a wonderful variety of habitats and a great diversity of wildlife. The reserve offers an enormous traversing area of close on 130,000 acres. The main activity at Vumbura Plains is game viewing in wonderful and varied countryside. Safaris allow close proximity to animals in the savannah and forested areas. To make the experience even more enjoyable many varied activities are available. Safaris by boat and dugout canoe (mokoro) are a great way to see the water areas, while land game drives are best for tracking animals. Guided Nature Walks also give the best feel for the environment. Wildlife “hides” offer a great way to enjoy game viewing and birding, especially during those warm, lazy afternoons.

" North Island is one of forty inner granitic islands of the Seychelles that are often considered to be the most beautiful on Earth. As such, North Island Lodge is a rare sanctuary for guests seeking a gorgeous, unspoiled tropical haven on a large private island"
