Delta to Desert
This unique 10 Day Delta to Desert private journey showcases Botswana in all its magnificence. You’ll experience the wilds of the Linyanti Reserve, where game viewing is hard core, the wetlands of the pristine Okavango Delta, and the extraordinary desert experience of the remote Makgadikgadi salt pans. See big game in huge numbers, as well as the smaller more elusive species, and at the end of each adventurous day retire to the sublime comforts of our hand-picked camps and lodges.

Day 1: Arrive Maun – Linyanti Reserve
A&K welcome to Botswana where you are met and assisted to your light aircraft flight to Savuti Camp, positioned along the Savute Channel in the private Linyanti Concession. This wild, unfenced wildlife sanctuary is well known for its large number of predators including lion and African wild dog, plains game as well as huge elephant herds. Before your first game viewing activity this afternoon, settle into your accommodation, featuring seven classic spacious, canvas tents raised on wooden decks with a large private veranda for your own private slice of Africa.
Hotel: Savuti Camp, 3 nights
Days 2 & 3: Linyanti Reserve
Setting out at dawn, when predators are active, guides are as keen as guests to discover the riches of each day. Once the sun is high and strong, retreat with the herds to camp. Then, as the sun begins to wane, head out late afternoon in search of nocturnal wildlife and the action that comes with sunset. Short guided walks from camp are offered as well.
Day 4: Linyanti Reserve – Okavango Delta
Fly to the Okavango Delta with its network of lagoons, channels, palm islands and floodplains. Your base is the elegant Qorokwe Camp, one of Botswana’s newest luxury safari camps set in a high-density game area of the southern-eastern Okavango bordering the renowned Moremi Game Reserve.
