WILDLIFE SAFARI NORTHERN BOTSWANA
An unforgettable self-drive 4×4 wilderness camping safari in arguably the very best wildlife area in Africa. We are referring to Botswana’s northern and north-eastern regions which includes the Okavango Delta and the famous Chobe National Park.
The tour focuses on game and bird viewing in this unique habitat where large herds of elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe and numerous antelope species are the order of the day. A visit to the Victoria Falls across the border and a sun-downer boat trip on the Chobe River are included in this bucket-list tour.
