Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Botswana

Great Wilderness Journey - From $9,735 per person

Experience a nostalgic, turn-of-the-century camping safari that recreates a sense of pure adventure reminiscent of the times of the great African explorers. The style of accommodation takes you back to the bygone era of Africa’s exploration - on the ultimate Safari. Flowing linen of heavy, pure cottons, brass bucket showers and basins add to the atmosphere, while all luxury comforts and amenities are available, including a bush laundry service. At the turn of the century, explorers and adventurers made their way leisurely across the dusty paths of Africa, allowing the great continent to seep into their souls. This guided mobile safari takes time to experience and explore Botswana’s contrasts and extremes: from the floodplains of the Linyanti to savannah habitat with sweeping views, to the lushly vegetated wetlands of the Okavango Delta. The entire safari is guided and hosted by professional and passionate trained guides, who share their in-depth knowledge to present a seamless, well-rounded experience. To ensure total privacy and exclusivity, most areas in which you travel are private concessions in pristine, prime game locations. All camps are private and for the use of you and your fellow adventurers only. To maximise your travel time, a variety of travel modes that bring out the best of each area is used: flying in private charters, overland transfers and exclusive combination mokoro-boat-land transfers provide both a birds-eye view and an in-depth experience of the contrasting landscapes of Botswana.
