The Botswana Explorer is described as an adventure safari and is run by andBeyond, a highly regarded safari operator in southern and eastern Africa. This safari lasts ten days and operates between Maun and Victoria Falls, visiting the Okavango Delta, Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Chobe National Parks.
Accommodation & Facilities
This is a fully serviced mobile camping safari, which means staff will erect the tents, cook for the guests and provide the same level of service as would be received at any andBeyond lodge or camp. Accommodation is in two-man dome tents with an adjoining outdoor bathroom with a hot bucket shower and long drop flushing loo. The safari travels with a maximum of six participants and everyone is guaranteed a window seat for uninterrupted game viewing. Guests will travel through the varied landscape of Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta in specially customised 4×4 safari vehicles, accompanied by an expert guide throughout. Botswana Explorer itineraries make use of private exclusive camps for eight nights, and spend one night at a lodge at the Victoria Falls. The majority of the trip is overland, although two light aircraft flights are included which maximise the time on safari but also enable guests to get a bird’s eye view of the mighty Okavango Delta.
Wildlife & Activities
Chobe National Park is in the heart of elephant country and here you will have the opportunity to spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the waters of the Chobe River by vehicle and by boat. Northern Chobe has beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets, with a large variety of bird and animal life. You will also visit Savuti Reserve which is a particularly good place to see lion and other predators throughout the year, especially during the zebra migration. You will also visit Moremi which is rated as Africa’s most beautiful wildlife sanctuary, where you will spend your time on extensive game viewing drives. In the Okavango Delta you will explore the crystal clear channels, islands and waterways by mokoro (dug-out canoe), and undertake game viewing walks on the islands.
