Starting in Maun and ending in Victoria Falls, the tour "Botswana Leopard Trail & Kalahari" is a guided wildlife safaris and game drives tour that takes 17 days. You will be traveling through Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Moremi, Chobe National Park and 3 other destinations in Botswana and Zimbabwe. "Botswana Leopard Trail & Kalahari" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Explore the best of Botswana from the Kalahari to Chobe National Park plus Victoria Falls on a semi-participation safari. This camping trip provides a complete overview of Botswana for those with an adventurous spirit looking to see the wild side of Africa. Few trips can offer such a diverse and stimulating experience as we traverse the country from the vast Kalahari, home to the San Bushmen, to the magnificent game reserves in the north. In the world famous Okavango Delta we explore this wildlife-rich region by traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) and on foot. Whether you are a wildlife enthusiast or on your first African safari, there are few places on earth that are as impressive as Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park, where huge herds of elephants roam. We conclude this spectacular adventure with time to visit the thunderous Victoria Falls.

“The trip was brilliant! Botswana is a wonderful country with lovely people and a vast variety of wildlife that can be observed in close proximity, without the crowds usually present at other destinations. The vehicle was very comfortable (plenty of leg room), and so were the tents (easy to assemble), The guide was highly skilled and experienced, which gave me peace of mind so I could focus on the beauty that surrounded me wherever we went, and the chef did wonders with the pretty limited supplies available. Will definitely be back!”

“This was a 10 out of 10 trip! We went to experience wildlife at close hand and we certainly got that thanks to our fantastic tour leader/driver Shabba, whose ability to spot animals was unbelievable. The camp assistant O.T was cheerful and friendly and prepared good quality meals. Many of us bonded strongly. The immensity of the Kalahari, the night sky, the sense of solitude, the night "visitors" to our camps .. We will never forget this trip.”

“This trip was even more exciting than we imagined. Bush camping certainly brings one close to the wildlife and their habits, and we twice saw and heard lions near our campsite. Hippos grunted during the night and leopards and hyenas visited while we slept. Our leader, a fountain of knowledge on the history and environment of Botswana, and a great spotter, made us feel safe and went to great lengths to help us experience the diversity of wildlife and vegetation. The rains were early and constant but the bush was luxuriant, many animals were having young and Victoria Falls were spectacular on the Zambian side. Camping with the locals in the Okavango Delta was also a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.”
