Starts:Maun Airport 3 nights Linyanti Ebony Full Board & Activities 4 nights Khwai Tented Camp Full Board & Activities 4 nights Camp KalahariFull Board & Activities 1 night Maun Camp Ends:Maun Airport This 11-night safari explores three very different areas – the Chobe Enclave, Khwai Reserve and Makgadikgadi Pans – for a fantastic introduction to Botswana. Accommodation throughout is relatively simple but very comfortable with stays at Linyanti Ebony, Khwai Tented Camp and Camp Kalahari. It’s the perfect trip for those after an authentic safari, a real adventure that immerses you in Botswana’s unspoilt wilderness, from marshes on the Linyanti River and forests in the heart of the Okavango Delta, to vast lunar salt pans in the Kalahari. Three contrasting areas means an exciting variety of activities. As well as the usual morning and afternoon game drives, you will have the opportunity to head out at night to seek out unusual nocturnal species, engage all your senses on walking safaris, take to the water on boat and mokoro excursions and quad bike on salt pans. There’ll even be the chance visit a colony of inquisitive meerkats and walk through the desert with the local San bushmen. All three camps welcome children, so this is great safari for families. By Botswana standards the camps in this trip are located a fair distance apart but the flights between are incredibly scenic and will provide breath-taking views Botswana has diverse ethnic groups living side by side in what has historically been a very peaceful country. However, for the visitor this sparse population can imply few opportunities for cultural interaction - so it may seem to be an unpromising place to search for any of Africa's best cultural experiences. Look hard and there are some fascinating cultural experiences in Botswana. One of the most interesting groups for outsiders to visit are the scattered groups of hunter-gatherer people that we would refer to as Bushmen, or the San. The San lead a semi-nomadic lifestyle, with a culture that's very different from most other African tribal groups. Several camps offer fantastic Bushmen walks, with authentic San trackers, happy to share their wealth of knowledge about the bush with you. It's a great opportunity to get a real insight into the zoology, geology and anthropology of the places they call home. If you want more, then ask us about a luxury mobile safari that enables you to spend much more time with bushmen and experience their culture and traditions, living near to them in their village. Botswana's only World Heritage Site is well worth a visit. The Tsodilo Hills have one of the highest densities of Bushmen rock art in the world, dating back at least 100,000 years. This rocky outcrop, rising 1400m from the rolling plains of the Kalahari, is little visited, but is definitely worth the effort, once described as “The Louvre of the Desert”.
