Unlocking Okavango’s Remote Corners

Botswana offers exceptional wildlife viewing and accommodations, including the simplicity and immersion provided by canvas-based exploration in the Okavango Delta. This safari skillfully merges luxury lodging at Khwai Private Reserve with a private, mobile-tented experience in a Delta area reserved exclusively for you. This arrangement, devoid of other vehicles and aircraft, offers a personal and intimate connection with the wilderness, in our opinion this among the pinnacle of safari experiences available in Botswana today.

The journey concludes with a flight to Makgadikgadi Pans, where a three-night stay at San Camp awaits. Here, the stark desert landscape presents a striking contrast to the Delta, showcasing the diverse beauty and distinct environments of Botswana. This itinerary represents Botswana in its most extraordinary form, offering varied and profound experiences. Access by helicopter enhances this safari, offering a panoramic perspective of the region and unlocking access to regions otherwise incredibly difficult to reach.
