If you thought a safari was only about game driving across vast, wildlife-spotted plains, then this unique custom itinerary in Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the Makgadikgadi Pan will make you think again. There’s certainly game drives, and there’s also plenty of wildlife, but we’ve also got walking safaris led by expert Bushmen trackers, traditional mokoro safaris and quad biking, and otherworldly, lunar-like landscapes, just made for marvelling at. After all, we do like to be a little different at Natural Selection.
The Okavango Delta and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans couldn’t be more different – and that’s exactly why we’ve combined them in this itinerary. When you reach the Makgadikgadi, you might think you’ve arrived on another planet. Shimmering salt stretches as far as the eye can see, silence dominates, and it’s all yours to discover as you wish. Then it’s off to Khwai Private Reserve, a luscious land of winding waterways, thick forest and emerald-green grass, not to mention a jaw-dropping concentration of wildlife. Talk about chalk and cheese!
