Starting and ending in Maun, the trip "Wildlife & Wilderness Of Botswana" is a guided wildlife trip that takes 14 days. You will be touring through Chobe National Park, Moremi, Maun and 4 other destinations in Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Botswana. "Wildlife & Wilderness Of Botswana" is a small group trip which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please check the package includes section for more details.

Take a journey into the wilds of Botswana. Glide along the Okavango Delta in traditional mokoro canoes and admire a billion stars from the otherworldly and eerily silent Makgadikgadi Pans. Search for the emblematic wildlife of Africa on the Savuti Marsh and the Moremi Reserve and take to the Chobe River, home to the highest concentration of elephants anywhere. Finally discover why David Livingstone, upon seeing Victoria Falls, declared ‘scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.’Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:"This was always on my bucket list of trips, to see the Okavango Delta floods. I recently had the opportunity to travel down the iconic Okavango Delta waterways in traditional Mokoro canoes with the local Exodus expert Polers. Without a doubt, it was one of the most serene ways to travel I've ever experienced. It was so quiet that we could literally glide past herds of elephant, giraffe, buffalo and sections teeming with hippos without disturbing them." This trip includes a few of our Citizen Science Departures. These special departures offer you the opportunity to be involved in the collection of freshwater samples during the trip.
