Wonders of Botswana

Are you ready to explore Botswana’s most fascinating wilderness areas at your pace? Embark on this 12-night self-drive safari with a fully equipped vehicle to discover Makgadikgadi N.P, Chobe N.P and Moremi Game Reserve.

Makgadikgadi N.P boasts endless moon-like landscapes and desert adapted species (2 nights). The visit to Kubu Island (1 night) is well worth it to enjoy the magical sunset.

At Nata, you will be able to rest for 1 night and enjoy a hot shower.

The route will continue towards Chobe. You will explore the Chobe riverfront area (2 nights), a haven for all the elephants in the area. In addition, you will be able to get supplies for the remaining of your trip.

North Savute will be your next stop for 1 night. Then you will head to Khwai (2 nights) known for its abundance of wildlife and bird species.

Moremi South (1 night) will be your last safari destination. The game drives in this area are quite productive.

Expert tip

Camping sites are limited in size and always in high demand. We would suggest you start planning between 12 to 8 months in advance.

January and February do not present ideal driving conditions as the terrain is muddy due to the rain and the tracks are difficult to find. We only recommend travelling during these months if you are an expert 4×4 driver.
