This trip includes not only Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta, but also the predator-rich Linyanti region to the west of the wildlife-rich Chobe National Park! The safari camps we use are fabulously located in private reserves.

The holiday involves three superb properties. You’ll start at The Stanley & Livingstone, a first-class boutique hotel in a private reserve that’s just a short hop from the world’s largest waterfall! Next up, you’ll travel to Selinda Explorers Camp in Botswana’s Kwando Reserve. Something of a favourite at YZ, one reason why we love this camp is its setting, amidst lovely riverine woods. Finally, you’ll head to Shinde Camp. This property has a wonderful location in the northern region of the Okavango Delta, on an island on the edge of a lagoon. All properties are small and have a highly exclusive feel!

During your stay at The Stanley & Livingstone, you’ll enjoy access to Victoria Falls, for tours, wet-and-wild watersports, helicopter flights, and much more besides. You’ll also be able to explore the private reserve, on expertly guided game drives, walks, canoe trips, and horse trails. Selinda Explorers offers vehicle safaris, walking safaris, and canoeing too. And the activity list at Shinde features day and night game drives, walks, motorboat trips, mokoro rides, and even fishing! (Please note, fishing is available from March to December every year.)

*Please note, this is just one example of a trip we could design for you. We tailor-make safari holidays that take you to the real Africa – no readymade tours or set departures. Do get in touch with one of our experts today to start creating your bespoke itinerary!*
