We put this Ultimate Botswana Safari trip together for 2 friends who had visited Africa before, but were traveling to Botswana for the first time. The Ultimate Botswana Safari package allowed them to stay at 4 luxury safari lodges from Desert & Delta Safaris to get the full Botswana experience.
Their trip began at the luxurious Leroo La Tau, which offers unsurpassed views of the Boteti River and Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The park features salt pans that seem to stretch on for eternity, but is surrounded by grasslands and attracts rich wildlife, including thousands of flamingos, during and after a year of good rain. They saw countless zebras at the river and took a cultural visit to Khumaga Village.
Their Ultimate Botswana Safari adventure continued with 2 nights each at Xugana Island Lodge in the Okavango Delta and Savute Safari Lodge. For your journey, you can stay 2 nights each at 2 of the following: Xugana, Savute, Camp Moremi, or Camp Okavango. Each offers a unique safari experience in a different part of Botswana’s rich and beautiful landscape. Our clients were able to take a guided nature ride in a dugout canoe at Xugana and see ancient San (Bushmen) rock paintings on a trip from Savute.
Next on their Ultimate Botswana Safari tour, they visited Chobe National Park and stayed in the Chobe Game Lodge, the only permanent game lodge in the park. They were able to relax in an intimate and private suite with unhindered views of the river and the Caprivi floodplains of neighboring Namibia. They enjoyed unlimited land- and water-based viewing activities during their 2-night stay, taking a guided boat trip to view riverside wildlife and catching sight of several elephants in the park. Finally, after a delicious breakfast at the lodge, they were transferred to the airport to begin their trip home.
