Itinerary Description:

Before embarking on your Botswana walking safari, take advantage of a relaxing day in Johannesburg, recovering from your international flight. Your first walking safari in Botswana takes place on the edge of the Okavango Delta's floodplains at Footsteps Across the Delta, where the emphasis is hands-on exploration of the surrounding environment as the first African explorers did: in mokoros and on foot. Each day's walking safari offers a completely different experience along the water's edge and uncovers the bush's many surprises, whether semi-aquatic lechwe, humorous warthog, lion, or birdlife.

After three days on foot on your walking safari in Botswana, depart for your four-day safari in Botswana's mysteriously ephemeral Selinda Spillway. Spend your time at Selinda Explorers, a camp that harkens back to the days of early safari expeditions. Stay under canvas and embark on explorations through more than 321,000 acres of the private Selinda Reserve.

Following four nights immersed in the sound of the bush, it's time to cross the border to indulge in some of Zambia's unrivaled luxury at Royal Chundu. Situated on a private nine-mile concession of the Zambezi River, you are in the perfect spot to experience the dramatic Victoria Falls and surrounding wildlife as the infamous David Livingstone did 150 years ago, by canoe, mokoro, or sunset river cruise.
