Botswana and Namibia
Your chance to truly get back to nature and enjoy the great outdoors, the regions of Botswana and Namibia are isolated, remote, and beautiful. Explore the world’s largest inland delta, Okavango Delta, in Botswana which was once a part of the ancient Lake Makgadikgadi over 10,000 years ago. Wait by the watering hole for the appearance of incredible creatures, including wildebeest, hyenas, crocodiles, hippopotamus, giraffes, and buffalo, to name just a very few.
Experience the Namib Desert up close and in person, and continue your wildlife education in the Etosha National Park. Compare the sandy, desolate dunes of the desert, some of which are over 300m high, with the endless grassy plains of the parks. This is truly a land of contrast, and you will never grow tired of simply looking.
A region of extraordinary diversity, South Africa has something to tempt every traveler. Visit Cape Town and marvel over Table Mountain while enjoying the delicious wines, before experiencing the majesty of the rolling Savannah, and see how many beautiful animals you can spot along the way.
