Highlights

Ethiopian Wildlife

You’ll explore the epic landscapes, peerless history and wonderful wildlife of Ethiopia on this action-packed tour. The chaotic but charismatic capital, Addis Ababa, is your launch pad for Gondar’s dramatic 17th century castles. You’ll get up close to Ethiopian wildlife in the Simien Mountain National Park: don’t let the antics of the baboons distract you from the astounding views. Birdwatchers will love the peaceful cruise along the Great Rift Valley’s lake road and, in the high altitude Sanetti Plateau, you’ll track the elusive Ethiopian wolf. Finally, you can discover Shashamane, an eclectic Rastafarian community characterised by its melting pot of customs and culture.

UK - Johannesburg

An overnight flight from the UK to Johannesburg ensures you have as much time as possible for the sights and experiences on your Botswana tour.

Johannesburg - Chobe

After a short flight from Johannesburg to Kasane, your safari adventure begins. Chobe National Park bursts with wildlife, much of which centres on the life-giving waters of its river. You’ll be in prime position in the Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero lodge, which has a split-level pool, gourmet food and a spa. From here you can watch the sun set over the hippo-filled waterway, teeming flood plains and the endless wilderness beyond.

Chobe

As you head out on a sunrise safari you’ll see the animals come to life. Around 50,000 elephant roam here, alongside buffalo and plenty of other creatures too. After a late morning rest, a mid-afternoon double-decker boat cruise awaits you. Sip a sundowner as you float down the river amid crocodile, hippo and a striking array of birdlife.

Chobe - Okavango Delta

An air transfer will land you on a vast sweep of the Okavango Delta, close to Moremi. Here, walking safaris enable close encounters with the bush at its best. You can stay at Sanctuary Baines' Camp (five exclusive rooms) or at Sanctuary Stanley's Camp (a private eight-tent lodge). In both you’ll feel fully immersed in this matchless wilderness.

Okavango Delta

From the deck of your tent (Sanctuary Stanley’s) or from the comfort of a four-poster bed, rolled out onto the deck for a night beneath the stars (Sanctuary Baines’), you’ll awake to the sounds of the Delta. Game drives, mokoro canoe trips and walking safaris with buffalo, giraffe and lion lie ahead. And you can also take the opportunity to walk with a couple of semi-habituated elephant, and gain unprecedented insight into these African giants from your expert guides.

Okavango Delta - Moremi

We’ll fly you into the heart of the Okavango and Moremi Game Reserve. The 'predator capital of Africa’ is a haven of lagoons, flooded pans and sweeping grasslands. The finest game-viewing spot is Chief's Island, seasonally surrounded by either glittering waters or grassy plains. Your home for three nights will be the exclusive Sanctuary Chief's Camp, a cluster of 12 private pavilions.

Moremi

Raised above the surrounding wilderness, Sanctuary Chief's Camp makes the ideal HQ for forays into the Moremi. You’ll see abundant wildlife, including rarer species such as cheetah, leopard and even wild dog. Morning and evening game drives show off Botswana at its best, and if the water's high enough, you can continue to master your mokoro canoe technique.

Moremi - Maun - Johannesburg

On the short return flight to Maun, you’ll have ample time to gaze down at the drama of the Delta for one last time. From here, a flight to Johannesburg will connect with your overnight flight back to the UK.
