Botswana's Timeless Wilderness
Big Game, Splendid Isolation

If we had to pick the most miraculous African place of all, it might well be the Okavango Delta, where the 1,000-milelong Okavango River gives up on its search for an outlet to the sea and seeps lifegivingly into the sands of one of the world's most uncompromising deserts, creating a vast and mesmerizing oasis. As Frans Lanting wrote in his elegiac book Okavango: Africa's Last Eden, "The [Delta's] very existence in the middle of the Kalahari Desert is nothing short of miraculous . . . like a dream."

Botswana's wilderness is expansive and-to our scurrying senses-timeless, and the Okavango isn't its only dreamy place. Our under-two-week safari takes us to three others, right up near the top of African marvels: Chobe National Park and, up near the Zambian border, the exemplary Moremi Wildlife Reserve, quite close to another phenomenon of miraculous rarity, Victoria Falls.

Safari Highlights

  • Wending the animal-rich waterways and plains of the world-unique Okavango Delta by motorcraft, comfy dugout canoes, and well-provisioned 4-Wheel drive vehicles.
  • Private, festive welcoming dinner with Felix and Jane Pinto’s dear Johannesburg friends.
  • Expertly guided nature walks and interactive discovery sessions geared toward the Okavango’s marvelously adapted wildlife, its fascinating ecology, and sheer wilderness wonder.
  • Visit to the evocative San rock paintings in the Gubatsa Hills.
  • Beginning-to-trip’s-end services of expert guides and facilitators and our ceaselessly alert Concierge Service.
