Botswana Safari and Seychelles Private Island beach experience
Safari Overview
Large herds of Elephant and Buffalo thundering through the Linyanti plains, drifting silently in a mokoro at the Okavango Delta and viewing lion, leopard and cheetah stalking the plains of Mombo for prey are some of the images captured on this exciting safari, resulting in a relaxing retreat on a private island in Seychelles.

The Linyanti area has a large wildlife resource with a wide variety of species, but is most noted for its very large Elephant herds, which can reach enormous densities during the winter season. Throughout the safari, there are good sightings of Impala, Lechwe, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Sable, Waterbuck, Buffalo and the smaller plains antelope. The major predators such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Hyena are also regularly sighted. At Mombo, there is a chance to view the rare and elusive White, and Black, Rhino.

Jao Camp is sited on a private reserve island, to the west of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Across the waterway in front of the camp, guests have access to open flood plains and savannah for a wonderful Okavango experience, with a choice of water (mokoro and boat trips) and land-based game drive activities.

With four white sandy beaches located at each end of the compass, North Island in the Seychelles is able to offer a year-round tropical beach and island experience. A perfect, relaxing end to a safari in Botswana.

" North Island is one of the forty inner granitic islands of the Seychelles, often considered to be the most beautiful on Earth, offering a rare sanctuary for guests seeking an unspoiled tropical haven on a remote private island. "
