Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

Botswana Leopard Trail & Kalahari

This camping trip provides a complete overview of Botswana for those with an adventurous spirit looking to see the wild side of Africa. Few trips can offer such a diverse and stimulating experience as we traverse the country from the vast Kalahari, home to the San Bushmen, to the magnificent game reserves in the north. In the world famous Okavango Delta we explore this wildlife-rich region by traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) and on foot. Whether you are a wildlife enthusiast or on your first African safari, there are few places on earth that are as impressive as Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park, where huge herds of elephants roam. We conclude this spectacular adventure at Livingstone, Zambia, with time to visit the thunderous Victoria Falls.

traveller reviews

A fantastic trip - saw an amazing array & number of animals including my highlight, leopards. I was so glad to have wild camped, an experience that will stay with me forever: listening to the roar of
lions & the low rumbling of elephants and looking at the tracks in the morning to see what animals have passed through camp during the night - amazing. Victoria Falls was awesome & the optional helicopter flight was a highlight worth every penny. Forget the trips that other companies do that stay in lodges do this one & you'll remember it for the rest of your life. Botswana is a fabulous country.
