Adventure is wrapped in luxury in Botswana, where you wing your way from camp to camp on small planes. The view over the Okavango is spectacular. A wetland wilderness of looping channels, islands forested with palms, and wide grassy floodplains, the Delta is home to a magnificent array of exceptional birds and animals. Visit the otherworldly Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where a glowing white expanse of natural salt deposits create glittering mirages that seem to reach out into the horizon endlessly. Nearby, the Nxai Pans are home to an array of animal and plant life, including the giant “upside down” Baobab trees that make the African skyline so spectacular. Explore this natural paradise in open 4x4 vehicles, on foot, and in mokoros (dugout canoes) before returning to your exclusive, luxury tented camps.
"This trip was an exceptional highlight of our lives, and enriched us beyond our expectations, while providing special memories which we will covet and enjoy for the rest of our lives."
--Stanley Dudrick, M'61
