This trip includes not only Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta but also the predator-rich Linyanti region to the west of the Chobe National Park, using camps located in private reserves.

This safari is designed around three fantastic small properties. We start at Waterberry Lodge upstream from Victoria Falls, before moving on to the exceptional Selinda Explorers Camp in Linyanti and finally Shinde in the Okavango. These are high-quality camps, offering a very good all-round safari. In our opinion, they are the very best in this price bracket.

Days 1–2 Victoria Falls

On arrival into Livingstone, you will be met and transferred upstream of Victoria Falls to Waterberry Lodge.

Waterberry Lodge is wonderfully tucked away on the banks of the Zambezi. It is one of the region's only owner-run properties and as a result gets some of the best client feedback of any camp we sell. The location, approximately 35 minutes' drive from town, guarantees a quiet stretch of river for some superb boating safaris, and the ability to escape the hustle and bustle of the Falls region itself.

Board basis and activities:
There are a number of board basis options at Waterberry, but we recommend the all-inclusive option wherever possible. It is the best value due to the inclusion of trips to the Falls, boating safaris, fishing trips, and cultural excursions to the villages around Waterberry.

Days 3–5 The Linyanti

After Waterberry, we take a flight to the exceptional Linyanti region. Home to three of Africa’s finest private reserves, this is a first-class big-game area that’s famous for privacy, exclusivity (the major reason for the increase in cost over our value safari), and some of the best game viewing on the continent. Selinda Explorers is the camp we have cherry picked for these three nights; it's an exceptional authentic tented camp.

Board basis and activities:
Selinda Explorers is booked on an all-inclusive basis including all food, drinks, and safari activities. Days are designed by the guides when you arrive in the camp, with standard game drives by day and night available as well as walking safari and mokoro (subject to water levels) – all included in the price.

Days 6–8 Okavango Delta

After three days at Selinda, we fly in to the Okavango Delta, the jewel in Botswana’s crown. This wetland paradise of lily-scattered floodplains and palm-fringed islands is Africa’s most stunning game-viewing environment, and boasts stacks of big game. Your home for the next three nights is Shinde Camp in the Shinde Reserve – an outstanding property that we’ve used for years.

Board basis and activities:
Shinde Camp is booked on an all-inclusive basis including all food, drinks, and safari activities. Days are designed by the guides when you arrive in the camp, with standard game drives by day and night available as well as walking safari and mokoro (subject to water levels) – all included in the price.

On Day 9, you will transfer by light aircraft to Maun, where you will connect onto your international flight.
