A complete safari experience
Safari Overview
Black-maned lions, Quadbiking in the Kalahari, Watching elephant drink from an underground hide and Drifting on a canoe at the okavango delta dominate our images of this spectacular wildlife safari in Botswana. A perfect introduction to Botswana delivering all the major experiences of this delightful safari destination.

The landscape varies from the floodplains of the Linyanti to savannah habitat with sweeping views, creating a paradise for a high diversity of wildlife and bird species.

Activities include game drives in the private northern sector of the concession, exploring a range of habitats, from riverbanks to scrub and forest, which reveal a myriad of wildlife en route to slake their thirst from the river. The seldom-seen sitatunga can also be spotted in the waterways, as well as rare plains game, such as roan and sable antelope and of course their predators, the lion and leopard - with the endangered wild dog as an incredible bonus.

There’s also night game drives at the Jao concession for an opportunity to view rare nocturnal species such as Eagle Owls, Porcupine, Spotted Hyena, Pangolin, Spring Hares, Bushbabies, Civet and Genet cats. Also at Jao, enjoy a true Delta experience while you sit back in a mokoro (dugout canoe) and silently glide through the wonders of the tranquil Okavango waterways, observing a myriad of delta creatures and magnificent sunsets.

These ‘5 star style’ Safari Camps are renowned for their elegance, charm and character and contribute greatly to an unforgettable vacation in the wilderness. A great ‘first safari’ experience.
