Botswana’s government has undertaken decades of conservation efforts, resulting in Botswana being the most highly conserved country in Africa. Here, one can find massive herds of buffalo, a high density of big cats, and close to 1/3 of the entire elephant population on the continent. In the Khwai Concession, embark on a game drive in search of leopards, lions, giraffe, and wildebeest. Continue on to the private Imbabala Concession in Zimbabwe, and watch a large herd of elephant drink from the river as one of Africa’s spectacular sunsets plays out behind them. Journey on to Zimbabwe’s northwest corner, where the mighty Zambezi River forms the border with Zambia. Here one can enjoy the majesty of the river and view Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Finish in the heart of Zambia’s remote and extensive South Luangwa National Park, where a myriad of bird and wildlife awaits, with vast herds of plains game and the predators that follow.
- On safari in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, search for the abundant variety of bird and wildlife including elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, impala, lechwe, kudu, and bushbuck and their predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena.
- Witness large herds of elephant in South Luangwa National Park, as well as other unique animals like puku, the endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s wildebeest, wild dog, honey badger, porcupine and civet.
- Marvel at the power and beauty of Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
