Botswana Deluxe Safari

Camp/Lodge Itinerary

We spend two nights at each camp/lodge then fly bush planes to the next.  Each camp is equipped with a guest lounge area, dinning area, pool, bar, gift shop and a game viewing location (many times that’s just sitting on your tent’s deck.) 

Our tents/rooms are five star all the way from the raised teak deck they are pitched on, to your en-suite bath and wardrobe cabinet with fluffy robes and slippers.  

Each camp is located in a different environmental setting allowing us to see a vast number of wildlife species.  While some animals such as elephants, lions and impala are seen everywhere, we’ll see bushbuck, sable and roan only along the Chobe River, red lechwe in the Okavango Delta and wild dogs closer to the Kalahari Desert. 

Sample Camp Day

We wake early for a predawn continental breakfast and are out game viewing just before sunrise.  Returning three or so hours later we are greeted by a full brunch.  

The remainder of the morning and early afternoon are spent at leisure: reading a book, taking a dip in the pool, napping or watching nearby wildlife.  Late afternoon we’ll gather for tea and our evening game drive, sundowners (your beverage of choice), dinner, after dinner drinks around the camp fire and a good nights rest.

Rising early again we have our last game drive in the area.  After brunch and a quick repack, we take the short ride back to the airstrip for our flight to the next camp.

Victoria Falls, Livingstone, Zambia

From The Chobe Game Lodge we will travel to the most northeast corner of Botswana where we'll cross the Chobe river to Zambia.  After clearing customs at the rivers edge, our driver will take us to the town of Livingstone and the Royal Livingstone Hotel.  Our hotel is located on the edge of the Zambezi river just a few hundred yards from the top of Victoria Falls, one of the worlds great wonders.

Walking paths lead you through the resort to the north gate and access to great views of the falls.  Wildlife freely roams the resorts extensive grounds and surrounding forest.

Our next morning starts with a wild jet boat ride on the rapids of the Zambezi river.  The tour includes stops at several local villages where we will learn how these wonderful people live and work.
