This inspiring journey takes a privileged look at two pristine parts of Africa – the Okavango Delta and the Chobe National Park, which has one of the largest concentrations of game on the continent. The wildlife in Botswana is prolific and the landscapes diverse and dramatic. Game viewing is offered by 4WD vehicle, boat and sometimes on foot. The companionship of outstanding safari guides combined with the privacy of luxurious Sanctuary Retreats’ Lodges & Camps delivers an unforgettable safari experience.

Hotel: Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero, 2 nights
Day 2: Chobe National Park
Today enjoy a morning game drive traversing the park’s diverse landscapes, getting up close to elephants, hippo, buffalo, puku and other animals that gather on the banks of the Chobe River. Lion and leopard are also found in the area. This afternoon take a boat safari on the river watching elephants as they come down to drink and bathe, and hippos grazing. Enjoy sundowners as the sun sets.

Day 4: Okavango Delta
Today, a rare and unforgettable experience awaits. Join handler Doug and his semi-habituated elephants, Jabu and Morula, for a once in a lifetime experience. You’ll spend a morning with these gentle pachyderms on their daily forage. By participating in this activity you are supporting the Living with Elephants Foundation, a Botswana registered non-profit organisation. Later take a game drive on the grassy plains, glide along the waterways by mokoro (seasonal), or take a guided safari walk.
