We enjoyed the camps and they were very suitable for us and in the right order. The charter flights were good and the low levels over the Delta were stunning." - Ken, Sept 2015

Combine the beauty of the Okavango with the charm of a safari boat cruise

Combining the wonders of the Okavango Delta with the houseboat based Chobe River cruise to experience 2 of the best safari experiences in the beautiful country of Botswana.

Safari highlights include:

Two Unique Experiences

Experience two unique safari camps in the Okavango Delta

Boat Cruise River Safari

Enjoy a freshwater safari cruise on a houseboat

Wildlife Diversity

Encounter a huge diversity of wildlife and bird species.

Our suggested safari route

Our best of Botswana is completely reversible and either starts in Maun or Kasane and will finish at the other.

It offers a combination of a ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ camp in Okavango (the difference is explained here) and then links the Okavango with a stunning charter flight to the Chobe. Although land based safari destinations are possible, we recommend the Chobe is experienced from the water – off river based cruise liners – what a treat to enjoy game viewing from the water looking back onto the animals on the land.
