Botswana wilderness safari: A unique 12-day African safari featuring a thrilling walking safari in Linyanti Private Game Reserve in Northern Botswana, bringing you closer to nature than you’ve ever imagined. Game-filled Chobe and Moremi Wildlife Reserves, the Okavango Delta and a variety of diverse habitats make for an unforgettable safari.
Day 1 & 2: Chobe National Park
A To Africa Tours and Safaris representative will collect you at your hotel in Victoria Falls at 10h00 for a visit to one of the world’s most awe-inspiring Natural Wonders – the Victoria Falls (a guided tour is included in the safari fare). If you are flying directly to Kasane and do not wish to visit the Victoria Falls, you will be collected from Kasane Airport at 14h00 to meet your To Africa Tours and Safaris safari guide for lunch. It is a 15-minute drive from Kasane, and a 1½-hour drive from Victoria Falls to Chobe National Park in Botswana where you will spend two overnights camping in the Serondela area of northern Chobe. This is the heart of elephant country, and you may spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the waters of the Chobe River. (Both on game drives and on a private boat cruise) Northern Chobe boasts a large variety of bird and animal life, and is renowned for its beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets.
Day 3 & 4: Savute, Chobe National Park
After breakfast, depart to Savute (6 – 7 hours overland game drive) – excellent for lion and other predator viewing throughout the year – where you will spend two overnights camping next to the dry Savute Channel. Depending on the time of year, huge animal concentrations are attracted to this area.
Days 5, 6 & 7: Linyanti Explorations “Walking Safari”
After breakfast depart northwards to Linyanti (5 – 6 hours overland game drive) – a forgotten corner of northern Botswana which boasts a great diversity of game and birdlife. With its mature woodland, beautiful lagoons and river frontage on the Linyanti Swamp, it is one of the most attractive areas of Botswana.
Your Walking Safari with Linyanti Explorations is focused along the Selinda Spillway – a watercourse linking the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti Swamps. At The Selinda – a private wildlife reserve covering some 1350 square kilometers (unfenced) – a special area has been set-aside especially for Walking Safaris.
The walks take you along timeworn trails, through riparian forest and open plains with great opportunities of viewing big game on foot – including elephant, lion, cheetah, wild dog and various plains’ game. The Walking Safaris offer an up-close-and-personal wildlife experience, and are accompanied by a fully armed professional trails guide and tracker. Enjoy the bush lore and tracking skills of the experienced guides as they share their extensive knowledge with you. Each morning, enjoy an approximately seven kilometre inter-camp walk, and a casual, three-kilometre walk in the vicinity of each trails camp in the afternoon.
On day 5, spend your first night at either Selinda or Zibalianja Tented Lodge which offer normal camp activities. Your trails guide will brief you on your safari this evening.
On day 6, depart early to arrive at your first overnight camp in time for a delicious lunch followed by a siesta. Spend the afternoon walking in the vicinity of the camp, and enjoy late afternoon sundowners. After dinner, embark on a night game-drive seeking out nocturnal animals. Spend one overnight in Trails Tents.
On day 7, after breakfast, depart on the next trail to arrive at the overnight camp in time for a delicious lunch and siesta, followed by a walk in the vicinity of the camp. Embark on a night game-drive after dinner, and seek out some of the area’s fascinating nocturnal animals. Spend one overnight in Trails Tents.
Day 8 & 9: Moremi Wilderness Reserve
After breakfast, depart for the final leg of the Linyanti Walking Safari’s trail to arrive at base camp before lunch. Travel to Moremi Wildlife Reserve (5 – 6 hours overland game drive) – tucked into the northeastern sector of the Okavango. Set-aside in 1963 by the Batawana tribe, the Reserve is rated as Africa’s most beautiful wildlife sanctuary. Spend your days on extensive game-viewing drives in this beautiful Reserve.
Days 10 & 11: Okavango Delta
Travel by charter from Khwai – North Gate region of Moremi – into the heart of the Okavango Delta. Explore the crystal-clear channels, islands and waterways by mekoro (dug-out canoe), and enjoy overland game-drives, and game-viewing on the islands. Spend two overnights at our campsite in a private concession area.
Day 12: Depart
After breakfast, you will transfer to Maun by charter aircraft for your onward flight home or to your desired safari extension.
