A pair of black-maned Kalahari lions lie silently in the arid grassland, which is not uncommon on a Botswana safari holiday. These lions have desert-adapted and live alongside many other species in the vast Kalahari Transfrontier Park, including springbok, hyena, and the very pleasant meerkat, to name a few.
In contrast to this arid landscape, a small plane flight into the Okavango Delta reveals an ever-changing floodplain filled with rivers, lagoons, swamps, islands, and channels. Moremi Game Reserve, located in the Delta’s eastern reaches, is surrounded by many unfenced and privately managed wildlife concessions.
The Delta’s super luxurious bush camps and lodges are exclusive, with excellent guides among the best in Africa. You must carefully select your lodging for the majority of your time in this magnificent wilderness. That is not a simple task. Walking safaris, game drives, and water safaris can all be arranged to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of this fascinating ecosystem. The knowledge and experience of Vibes Group UK destination experts can advise you on the best options based on season and your personal preferences for wildlife viewing. Consider the following: You spot a pod of submerged hippos as your mokoro (canoe) gently glides through the water. Colourful birds flit by or forage on the banks while an African Fish Eagle dives into the water to grab its prey.
Chobe National Park in the country’s north is densely populated with animals, most notably for its massive herds of elephants, which number in the thousands. We’ll book you into the best lodges along the Chobe riverfront to ensure that your animal encounters don’t stop for the duration of your stay.
