If you are after the ultimate African wildlife encounter, then Botswana and Zambia present the perfect combination.
A Botswana safari means a wilderness adventure to one of the most pristine wildlife destinations in Africa. This vast and untamed land offers up a diversity of landscapes, from savannah and desert, to salt pan, wetland and flood plain, with the Kalahari Desert making up more than 80% of the landlocked country. The vast sponge into which the swollen Okavango River disappears each year creates the largest inland delta in the world – the Okavango Delta, best explored by traditional mokorocanoe along its many waterways.
Neighbouring Zambia is a country rich in natural beauty and wildlife, yet scant in tourists. Hear the roar of the thundering Victoria Falls, feel the adrenaline while white water rafting down the mighty Zambezi River, or take a leisurely game drive in the leopard country of South Luangwa. And aside from its variety of game, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and a number of exciting endemic species, Zambia is also renowned for its rich birdlife and exotic fish.
