Southern Africa Explorer
Are you dreaming of your first safari but don’t know where to start? This Southern Africa safari is the perfect itinerary for a little bit of everything.

Then you will be whisked away to the wetlands of Botswana and experience the magic of the Okavango Delta.

Prepare to be amazed as you enter the dry desert landscapes of the Kalahari.

What will you experience?
Referred to as the “smoke that thunders”, Victoria Falls is considered to be one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Bordering both Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River flows directly into the falls making them accessible from both countries. Fancy something out of the box? You can fly over the waterfall, canoe down the Zambezi or even opt for an excursion to Devil’s Pool on the waterfall’s edge.
The Okavango Delta
To put it simply, there is no other place in Africa quite as magical and heart-stealing as the Okavango Delta. These wetlands are home to some of the most diverse landscapes that remain to be one of the last untouched corners of the continent to go on a safari. With water in abundance, wildlife and unique activities are plentiful, too. Prepare to spot the Big 5 throughout your trip, as well as potentially get a rare sighting of the elusive wild dogs.
Elsewhere in Botswana there is much more magic to be found close by. And it comes in the form of the Kalahari Desert, a large basinlike plain of the interior plateau of Southern Africa. The savannah covers most of Botswana and extends into neighboring Namibia and South Africa. Expect the unexpected with adventurous activities in abundance, like quad biking, horse back riding, meerkats, desert sundowners and so much more.
