Serene Delta meanderings and floodplain adventures

Into the Wilderness – Botswana explores two unique wilderness areas that have been shaped by the southernmost fault lines of Africa’s iconic Great Rift Valley: the fascinating wetland of the Okavango and the riverine woodlands of the Linyanti River. Our safari begins in the heart of the Delta exploring the Xigera Concession from the beautiful island that is home to Xigera Camp. Heading north to the Linyanti we will have a chance to discover the river and associated floodplains that often see large numbers of general game closely followed by their associated predators, in particular leopard and wild dog. The Linyanti Concession also has a reputation for its large concentrations of elephant.

Highlights

  • Accommodation is in authentic, fully-serviced, luxury tented camps that also provide an intimate ‘close-to-nature’ experience.
  • Experience an exceptionally diverse range of activities: walks, day and night wildlife viewing – both water- and land-based.
  • The light aircraft transfers offer spectacular aerial views of the Okavango Delta.
