Travel deep into the heart of Botswana’s romantic wilderness to Chobe Game Lodge, one of the most enchanting places on earth. Relax in your private riverside boma or enjoy thrilling guided game drives that bring you up close to one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, as well as hippos, buffalos, antelope, lions and other creatures that gather on the banks of the Chobe River. Continue on to Savute Safari Lodge, known for its incredible predator activity.

Experience close-up encounters with elephants from an open 4×4 vehicle before cooling off with a dip in the plunge pool or sipping a cocktail on the viewing deck prior to a private candlelit dinner. Your adventure takes you onwards to Xugana, a water based camp nestled amongst the sparkling waterways of the Okavango Delta. Combine boat cruises and fishing with tranquil mokoro trips in eco-friendly dugout canoes, or with adrenaline pumping walks on surrounding lagoons and islands in the concession. Swap the waterways for desert vistas at Leroo La Tau and take both day and night drives to try and spot lion, leopard, cheetah, brown and spotted hyena and maybe even the rare white rhino. Before flying out of Maun, pause to participate in a tree planting ceremony and plant your own tree to contribute to the preservation of Africa’s natural environment for future generations.
