About
This Tour

Travel from the brilliant-green, game-heavy wetlands of the Okavango Delta, along the newly flowing Savuti Channel to the banks of the Zambezi River and the base of Victoria Falls on this classic, wildlife-rich safari.

  • Explore the magnificent riverine forests surrounding Paradise Island by mokoro and motorboat, keeping a lookout for elephants, hyenas, tsessebe and the elusive sitatunga
  • Take in the majesty of the Delta (and passing herds of zebras and wildebeest!) from your private deck on Hunda Island
  • Follow in the footsteps of giraffes, leopards, lions, cheetah, red lechwe and wild dogs on guided walks and game drives along the spectacular Savute Channel
  • Learn to distinguish between the calls of the African skimmer, greater swamp warbler, Pel’s fishing-owl, Meyer’s parrot and African finfoot
  • Spy on elephant, hippo and crocodile as you stroll the wooden walkways snaking through your camp in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park
  • Marvel at how miniscule you feel standing at the base of the mighty 350-foot tall, 5,600-foot wide Victoria Falls
  • Wrap up your day with a swim in plunge pool and dinner under the stars in a traditional African boma

Arriving in the Okavango Delta is like stepping into an oasis - a watery wonderland filled with wildlife nearly everywhere you look.

Nights 1 & 2: Xigera Camp

Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) is located on a riverine island right in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The camp consists of ten luxuriously furnished tented rooms raised on wooden platforms and walkways that offer superb views of the seasonal Okavango Delta floodplains and lagoon. Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed in the lounge, pub, and dining area overlooking a permanently flowing channel or under the stars in a traditional African boma.

Nights 3 to 5: Tubu Tree Camp

Awarded Trip Adviser’s Certificate of Excellence, the camp is located on the largest area of permanently dry land in the region and attracts a variety of plains game species to its palatable grasses. Around the traditional style, elevated camp, visitors can see elephant, lion, Burchell's zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains.

Nights 6 to 8: Savuti Camp

With the Savuti Channel becoming a flowing waterway again in 2008 (previously dry since 1980), the camp gives its visitors a front row seat to all of the action as the wildlife adapt to the new source of water. Enjoy nature’s dramas from the camp's thatched dining area or large viewing area with fire pit that extends outward on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful view.

Nights 9 & 10: Toka Leya Camp

Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands is Toka Leya Camp, consisting of 12 spacious en-suite safari-style tents. Wooden walkways snake between the units and main area, limiting the footprint on this pristine area.

    A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

    • 1. The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland river deltas. Cutting through the Kalajari desert, this makes for a very unique ecosystem for your enjoyment.
    • 2. You may get lucky and find a diamond! Formerly a British colony, diamonds were “discovered” in Botswana only months after its independence. It now accounts for 76% of all exports and is its greatest industry.
    • 3. With approximately 11 cubic kilometers of water spreading over the 6,000-15,000 km² area each year, the Okavango Delta was declared one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa
