What to Expect

Aside from its variety of game, such as lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and a number of exciting endemic species, Botswana and Zambia are noted for their rich birdlife, culture and exotic fish. It’s something of a pilgrimage for fishermen, and for birders, they can’t help but be drawn by the marvellous diversity of bird species.
These are the perfect African destinations to have authentic safari experiences.

  • Okavango delta Safaris
  • Wildlife encounters
  • Boat safaris
  • Zambezi cruises

Poling through the byways created by the floodwaters is a magical experience that allows guests to get very close to the biggest of the game and to see the world from a totally different angle – looking up onto the banks rather than down onto them.
