This exclusive Botswana and Zimbabwe safari is an authentic African experience with all the trimmings – action, adventure and luxury! You’ll explore Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Linyanti wetlands on foot or by mokoro and experience all that the African bush has to offer. Relax on the deck of your wonderful camp in Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and watch the wildlife coming to the Pan to drink, and sit by the elephant pool at your luxury camp in Hwange National Park and watch the elephants come to you. Enjoy game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles – perfect for wildlife viewing and photography, learn about the ‘small 5’ on walks with our very experienced guides, canoe through the waterways watching as elephants cross your path, and relax after dinner with a nightcap around the campfire – this journey has it all.
Staying in private concessions means you’ll experience night game drives and guided walks – activities not normally allowed within National Parks. With just 6 tents at each camp you’ll never have to share wildlife encounters with hordes of other vehicles. A portion of the tour price supports local communities and conservation projects which you will have the opportunity to visit during your safari.
The luxurious tented camps, which are all located in private concessions away from the crowds, have been hand-picked by African Encounters director Karen Platzer. The spacious luxury tents all have en-suite bathrooms and very comfortable beds – this really is ‘camping in style’. Karen will personally escort this safari and she looks forward to sharing some of her favourite places with you.*
This outstanding safari is limited to just 6 guests. Don’t miss your adventure of a lifetime!
Optional extension: A few days at our superb lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River at Victoria Falls is the perfect way to end your safari. It’s located away from the bustle of town but close enough to visit the Falls (a guided tour is included) or do some last-minute shopping. Each spacious room has a private plunge pool and deck overlooking the river, and the meals, staff and boat trips on the river are exceptional. It’s no wonder my guests rave about this stunning lodge and don’t want to leave!
