About This Safari

namibia-botswana-mapThis wildlife safari is specifically designed to visit a variety of southern Africa’s wildlife habitats, each with its unique community of birds and mammals, scenic attractions, and cultural components. Etosha National Park, Damaraland, the Skeleton Coast, Victoria Falls, the Chobe River Valley and the Okavango Delta are all included in this 16 day safari program. Your means of transportation is in specially equipped 4-wheel drive safari vehicles with a guaranteed window seat and access to the roof hatch for all participants, and charter flights to and from Xakanaka Camp in the Okavango Delta.

The map at the right indicates the route this safari will take. It starts with a flight from Johannesburg, South Africa to Windhoek, Namibia. The next leg of the safari is in 4×4 vehicles to Etosha National Park, Damaraland, along the Skeleton Coast to Swakopmund and back to Windhoek. We then fly to Victoria Falls, travel overland to Chobe National Park in Botswana and then take charter flights into the Okavango Delta and to Maun before flying back to Johannesburg.

 

Physical Activities

rock-lodgingThe pace of this safari is “moderate” and should not be excessively demanding for most. Stays at most locations are of more than one night, which allows time to experience the place, relax and even sit out a game drive or two. On most days there are options for both morning and afternoon activities. On some mornings it may be advantageous to depart early and return to the safari lodge for breakfast. On other days you may choose to take lunch with you and spend the entire day out. The afternoon game drive usually begins about 3:00 PM and may last until dark.

Your Naturalist – Guides

moremi-game-reserve-lionsThis safari is accompanied by one or more professional driver / guides. These men are graduates of an extensive and on-going training program that includes courses in natural history, tourism and African culture & history. They are carefully selected for their knowledge, temperament and ability to communicate. In addition they have had several years of “on the job” training and have advanced to their current position because they have successfully guided numerous wildlife safaris and demonstrated their ability as charismatic and resourceful guides.

Accommodations

This safari makes use of exclusive wildlife lodges and tented camps. In addition to enhancing the “feel” of the traditional East Africa safari, the tented camp provides all of the comforts of the lodges but offer far less crowded conditions and more personalized services. We expect you to savor your experience in Namibia, Victoria Falls and Botswana for the rest of your life and believe the private tented camps offers the most intimate safari experience.
