This 11-day itinerary explores remote wilderness areas in Botswana, southern Africa, and ends at the majestic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The first destination is the Okavango Delta, a magical wetland with a large concentration of wildlife. Next stop? Moremi Game Reserve, where the long necks of giraffes appear through the trees and shy sitatungas hide among the reeds.  

Guided safari walks on the private Selinda Reserve allow you to immerse yourself in the spectacular African landscape. And in northern Botswana’s Chobe National Park, expect animal encounters that take your breath away as elephants plod slowly into camp and hippos slumber along the river during a sunset cruise. The adventure comes to a close within sight of the magnificent flume of water vapour that hangs above the mighty Victoria Falls.

Set within a 272,000-hectare wildlife concession on its own delta island, the nine-tent Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp is an exclusive &Beyond property offering an unforgettable Botswana safari experience.

Spot wildlife such as… elephants, buffaloes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, African wild dogs, brown and spotted hyenas and more than 1075 bird species. 

Don’t leave without… an unforgettable helicopter flight over the Okavango Delta. This thrilling adventure offers awe-inspiring aerial views of this dramatic landscape.
