Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Botswana

Off The Beaten Path

Southern Africa offers seasons of contrast. In summer, rains brings the profusion of new life – antelope and plains game give birth to their young, opportunistic predators take advantage, colourful migrant birds arrive, dormant plants burst through the soil and flowers and fruits abound. In the drier months, animals are gripped in the epic struggle of survival along major wetlands and rivers that are lifelines at this time of year. This amazing 8-night package begins with  Kalahari Plains camp in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.  Within this massive Game Reserve and as a result of the diversity of habitats, healthy game populations move seasonally between dune and valley depending on the season. During the summer months though (November through to end April) the northern part of the CKGR, where Kalahari Plains Camp is situated, offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Botswana. You then move on to Xigera in the Okavango Delta which represents the extreme contrast of a water-filled world in an otherwise arid desert: abundant water, sunlight and soil combine to form a paradise bursting with life. The difference between the Kalahari and the Okavango becomes amazingly clear even as we fly from the one to the other. From there you continue onto the Caprivi strip where the scenic Lianshulu Lodge is situated inside Namibia’s Mudumu National Park. Your adventure ends at Toka Leya Camp near Livingstone and the stupendous Victoria Falls.
