This 6 Night Chobe, Savuti and Okavango Tour boasts some of the best safari destinations that Botswana has to offer. Your journey begins from the decks of the luxurious Chobe Princess houseboat that embarks from the Namibian banks of the Chobe River. Next, for some brilliant game-viewing experiences in the heart of the African wilderness, you fly into Botswana’s Savuti region, notorious for its large clans of predators and vast herds of elephant. Finally, you head to the marshy paradise of the Okavango Delta where wildlife is in abundance, and safaris take place via mokoros (traditional dug-out canoes), boat cruises, game-drives or on-foot, depending on the season.
