HIGHLIGHTS
  • Support local conservation efforts by visiting the Khama Rhino Sanctuary – the only place left in Botswana where both black and white rhinos sit side by side.
  • Camping on a remote island in the heart of the Okavango wilderness is an experience you’ll never forget. As night falls, the sounds of the remote African bush come alive!
  • Go wildlifespotting along the river at Chobe National Park – home of the world's highest concentration of African elephants – and keep the safari going in South Luangwa National Park on a dawn game drive.
  • Experience the rumble and roar of Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwe side, which gives you the broadest view. Looking for something special? Why not book in a scenic helicopter experience!

“This was the absolute best trip ever. I’ve traveled many times. I have to say this was one of the best experiences and adventures of all. Our skipper, Rita was simply amazing. The best! Wonderful skipper, skilled sailor, knowledgeable, so friendly, helpful, genuinely caring of her boat mates. She’s a dream to sail with! If anyone sails, I’d highly recommend requesting her.”
