After a good night’s rest and breakfast, we are off for adventure! We fly to Maun, Botswana, then to Leroo La Tau at the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pan National Park. World-renowned for its wildlife, there are so many things that are unusual, exciting and interesting in Botswana, and we will explore it all while living in exquisite comfort.

Unbelievable numbers of migratory birds flock to the pans and the grasslands swarm with a living mantle of zebra and wildebeest, participants in the second biggest animal migration on the African continent.

On our second day here we will spend some time mingling with the animals and enjoy a full day excursion to Nxai Pans National Park. This is a classic desert region which entails springbok, oryx, and eland all year round. We will make our way back to the lodge around sunset.

Our lodging is built on the cliffs above the Boteti River which provides us a great vantage point for some spectacular wildlife sightings. The river was once dry for 28 years, but it is actively flowing once again!  Common sightings are kudu, giraffe, elephants, zebra, and wildebeest.  

These days will be mixed with a variety of game drives, night drives and an amazing boat cruise on the Boteti River! Safari, Safari, Safari!


Day 5 and 6: Lions, Hyena and Zebra…OH MY!

Today’s flight takes you to one of the world’s most distinctive regions, the Okavango Delta – earth’s largest inland water system. Rivers with ever-changing names flow through the heart of Southern Africa ending in Botswana where prehistoric earthquakes and subsequent faults have created the magic that is now the Okavango Delta. This unique system of waterways now supports a vast array of animal and plant life that you can find nowhere else on earth.

There is a great deal of diversity of habitats here, making for a wide variety of wildlife. Our activities here will be centered around mokoro rides(dugout canoes), boat excursions and walking safaris. Birding is excellent as we may observe Pels Fishing Owls and Wattled Cranes. More than 600 species reside within the 7,000 square miles of islands, marshes, floodplains, and channels. We should be able to spot larger species like elephant, red lechwe, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, baboon, monkey, warthog, and buffalo…..along with predators like lion, leopard, and hyena! By land and sea and with our trusty guides, we will attempt to spot them all!

Are lodging is quite amazing with our East African style tents with private sundecks and en-suite hot shower. We will spend our days on safari, and our nights relaxing around the open air lodge with a cocktail, exchanging stories with our new best friends around a blazing campfire.


Days 7 and 8: Wild Enough?

We have saved one of the best for last, as we fly to the Moremi Game Reserve, rated as being one of the finest wildlife viewing areas in all of Africa with a vast selection of exotic wildlife. Wild dog, cheetah, and leopard are highlights, with resident species like lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, kudu, lechwe, tsessebe, and Sable and Roan antelope being plentiful. This is indeed a wilderness paradise, with great game viewing throughout the year.

Our home for the next two nights is one of the few Okavango lodges which can offer comprehensive year-round boating trips, as well as extensive nature drives into good wildlife country. With our team of experienced, professional guides we will see a wide variety of wildlife during the day and come home to relax in luxury every night. Who knew “Glamping” could be so swanky? Our camp offers wholesome meals, candle-lit dinners and a selection of fine wines that will more than satisfy. The only thing better than the scenery is the service!


Day 9: The Circle is complete…
