Overview

This affordable Botswana small group safari has been designed in such a way to introduce you to the full spectrum of the best game reserves and national parks in Botswana. If you are looking to take a two week safari in Botswana to get under the skin of the country, then this could be the Botswana wildlife tour for you. The small group Botswana safari starts with a meet and greet in Kasane (we can easily book a Kasane Hotel or Chobe Safari lodge for the night before) and your first night camping on the banks of the Chobe River. The following day there is a long 500km drive south to the beautiful Nxai Pan National Park where sweet grasses host a variety of wildlife. After 2 days wildlife viewing in Nxai, you will drive to Maun and have the option to take a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta. You will then enjoy two fabulous days camping in the Delta, with mokoro excursions and guided nature walks on the islands and floodplains of the Okavango Delta; camping wild with bush ablutions on a small island for two nights. You will then have 3 days of game drives in the wildlife rich Moremi Game reserve. This is one of the best wildlife viewing locations in Botswana and we have a chance to see lions, leopard and if we are really lucky, African wild dogs. Finally, we head to the famous Chobe National Park - as you continue your search for wildlife, you will traverse the drier region of Savuti where bull elephants dot the plains; which is where we will have our first campsite. We will then head further north in Chobe, and camp near the river to enjoy vehicle safaris in a different part of the park. We finish this great value budget Botswana safari with 1 night in a comfortable lodge on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls.
