Botswana is renowned as the most pristine safari destination in the world. The government follows a low volume eco tourism policy. This has preserved the country’s wilderness and reserves, allowing guests to have a true wilderness experience on safari.

This 9-night itinerary visits three areas of outstanding natural beauty; the arid plains of the Central Kalahari, the water ways of the Okavango Delta and the marshes and woodland of the Linyanti Concession. Combining these very different landscapes gives guests the opportunity to see a wide range of wildlife and really experience all Botswana has to offer. You will be staying in remote areas, far from the crowds, during this intimate, luxury safari.

    Day by Day Itinerary

    • Day 1 - 3

      Central Kalahari

      D1 Kalahari CheetahCamp Kalahari Botswana

      On arrival into Maun Airport in Botswana you will be met and assisted to your light aircraft for your flight to the Central Kalahari. The reserve is one of the largest in the world with huge areas of grass land. This arid habitat is home to the legendary Kalahari black maned lion as well as outstanding cheetah viewings. There is minimal tourism in the area and is an unexplored wilderness.

      The camp is located on the edge of an enormous pan close to Deception Valley. The camp comprises of eight en-suite canvas suites with a sleep out platform where you can choose to sleep under the Kahalari stars. Depending on the time of year the landscape is very different. In the winter you can enjoy a classic desert landscape. In the summer, the rains transform this desert into green plains. The game viewing is plentiful all year round and is especially known for its big cat sightings as well as the smaller animals, Cape Fox, Honey Badger and Mongoose. Every day you will head out on a morning and afternoon game drive with your experienced ranger. The camp also offers its guests the opportunity to go on a guided walk to learn more about the life of the San Bushmen, the tribe of the local area.

There is an option while you are at Little Vumbura to book a helicopter flight or hot air balloon trip to see the Delta from the air (additional cost).
