  • Experience some of the best game viewing in the whole of Africa
  • Ride up the river in a traditional Mokoro canoe
  • Catch your own fish dinner to enjoy over the barbecue
  • Spend time with the San people, the first Southern African inhabitants
  • Sit around the evening campfire to share stories with other guests and guides

Day 1 - 4: Linyanti Concession, Botswana

Day 4 - 7: Okavango Delta, Botswana

Day 7 - 10: The Kalahari, Botswana

Day 1 - 4: Linyanti Concession, Botswana

  • This incredible location is one of the most remote game viewing areas in Botswana and a haven for wildlife enthusiasts
  • An area that attracts all manner of wildlife, including big cats, wild dog, elephant and buffalo as well as abundant birdlife

A park nestled away on the western side of Chobe and separated from Namibia by the Linyanti River, The Linyanti Concession is the perfect first base for any safari trip.

Start your Botswana safari experience in the remote Linyanti Concession, your home for the next three nights. The perennial waters of the river and lagoons of the area provide encounters with wildlife almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa and some of the best birdwatching experiences. Take helicopter flights, guided walks and night drives from the luxurious Linyanti Bush Camp.

Day 4 - 7: Okavango Delta, Botswana

  • Spend a night under the African stars on the Sleep Out Deck
  • Become a twitcher by paying a visit to the Camp’s teeming heronry

The Okavango Delta displays incredible wildlife scenes, both on dry land and along its many waterways, ranging from hippos to lions and huge elephant herds.

From Chobe, you’ll travel to the Okavango Delta for three nights at Kanana Camp. After the wildlife action of Savuti, you may feel it’s time for a change in pace. Kanana will not disappoint in terms of wildlife, but as you glide along the waterways with boat activities and Mokoro trips, your safari will take on a slower pace. Enjoy the cooling waters of the Okavango as you glide between lily pads in the heart of the Delta. The famous heronry is a must-see, and you should try your hand at catching an African pike or even an Okavango bream for the barbeque.

Day 7 - 10: The Kalahari, Botswana

  • Enjoy the panorama from your own raised deck for the perfect view of a bush waterhole
  • Go on a walking safari to spot more than 200 bird species who call Dinaka home

Located on the Northern edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, this private reserve is refuge to a highly unique biodiversity and offers sightings from the Kalahari lion to springbok.

Travel to the Kalahari for a complete contrast in landscape for your final three nights. A relatively new camp located on the boundary of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Dinaka Lodge brings new opportunities for visitors to Botswana. We’re always keen to get our guests into the Kalahari and fantastic big game is always complemented by wildlife specifically adapted to the desert environment – aardvark, meerkat, brown hyena, and more. All the above are regular sightings, as are the well-cared-for white rhino who find security in this desert sanctuary. Our favourite experience at Dinaka is walking with the San people – what better way to experience this unique ecosystem than through the eyes of its first inhabitants.

What is typically included

  • 9 nights fully inclusive
  • Safari Activities: game drives, night drives, walking safaris, boat safaris, fishing
  • Mokoro canoe excursion
  • All domestic transfers and flights
