8-day wild water safari experience in Botswana and Zimbabwe

8-day wild water safari experience in Botswana and Zimbabwe

Combine the southern African gems of Botswana and Zimbabwe for a wildlife-rich safari experience.

From the thundering waters of Victoria Falls to the meandering channels and lagoons of the Okavango Delta, the waterways of Botswana and Zimbabwe are overflowing with opportunities for unique wildlife encounters.

Go birdwatching within earshot of Africa’s largest waterfall and drift along the Chobe River, where elephant wander and hippo wait with watchful eyes. In the Okavango, the world’s largest inland delta, lion, cheetah, leopard, African wild dog and antelope thrive, while travellers can soar above it all on a panoramic helicopter flight.

andBeyond specialises in creating ‘Tailormade Tours’ with an adventurous edge throughout Africa, Asia and South America, and its ‘Wild Waters of Southern Africa’ journey unites these two awe-inspiring destinations in one seven-night itinerary.

Take in the grandeur of Victoria Falls, exploring the surrounding landscape on game drives or adrenaline-fuelled activities such as abseiling or rafting.

Guests will then travel west to Chobe National Park for a photographic boat safari, staying at andBeyond Chobe Under Canvas, a mobile camp of five ensuite safari tents. The experience comes complete with bush dinners served under the stars and tales of the wild told around the campfire.

At Moremi Game Reserve, bordering the Okavango Delta, guests have a choice between a ‘Luxury’ stay at andBeyond Nxabenga Okavango Tented Camp – a hideaway of nine safari tents beside a lagoon – or the ‘Deluxe’ option of andBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge, a curving architectural marvel featuring 12 air-conditioned suites.

End your wildlife adventure with experiences such as canoe safaris, fishing tours, scenic flights and spa treatments, adding the final touches to your southern African odyssey.
