6 Day Highlights of Botswana (South)



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

We start our tour in Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat.

Leaving Chobe, 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.
