Lioness sunning on the Botswana Walking Safari by Ker & Downey

Before embarking on your Botswana walking safari, enjoy a relaxing day in Johannesburg to recover from your international flight. Then continue on to your first walking safari location in Botswana, Footsteps Across the Delta. With its location on the edge of the Okavango Delta’s floodplains, the emphasis here is exploration in the style of the first explorers: by mokoro canoe and on foot. Each day’s walking safari offers a completely different experience along the water’s edge to uncover many surprises. Among your sightings: the semi-aquatic lechwe, burrowing warthog, lion prides, and ample birdlife.

After three days on foot, depart for your four-day safari in Botswana’s ephemeral Selinda Spillway. During your stay, sleep under canvas at a camp that harkens back to the days of early safari expeditions. Meanwhile, embark on explorations through more than 321,000 acres of the private Selinda Reserve at Selinda Explorers.

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