6 Day Highlights of Botswana (North)



Let nature surround you on this 6 day highlights tour of Botswana that takes in the Okavango Delta waterways, a river cruise in Chobe National Park and the breathtaking Victoria Falls.

Leaving Maun we set off for the world's largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometres. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. Polers guide your mokoros through the waterways and nature walks will fill your days.

We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat.

After this we make our way to Victoria Falls where you can view the largest sheet of falling water in the world or partake in a myriad of activities on offer.
