Glimpse Southern Africa as Never Before with Live the Journey
From the roiling waters of Victoria Falls to the wonders of the Okavango Delta, from city living at it’s best to echoing nights under the desert stars, Live the Journey’s spectacular Glimpse of Africa tour brings you it all. Botswana plays an integral part of this unique tour package, taking you from echoing plains to swampy deltas in a safari experience that just can’t be missed.
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve will kick off the first part of the Botswana leg of your tour, taking you through the very best of Botswana’s aching dry beauty. This immense reserve, the second largest in the world, holds a wild and mysterious beauty of its own, where the land seems to stretch forever in a sea of golden grass meeting bright blue sky. At night, the stars shine on you in all their brilliance, and we challenge you not to fall for their breathtaking beauty! During the brief rainy season, the area teems with wildlife, but even in the dry season you’ll spot wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe in this pristine habitat as well as the majestic predators who feed on them. Developed as a sanctuary for the San people, the park is an unmissable addition to any trip through Botswana.
No Botswana trip would be complete without a visit to the Okavango Delta, known by some as ‘Africa’s last Eden’. Contrast the rich life of this unique wetland with the dry central Kalahari, and marvel at her lush vegetation and teeming wildlife. Island-hop your way through this rich oasis, and meet African buffalo, crocodile and hippopotamus in their natural surroundings alongside lion, leopard and so much more. The Okovango is also home to the endangered African Wild Dog, and you’ll have the opportunity to spot their packs as you explore her many islands and lush offerings.
Lastly, you will explore the amazing wildlife of the Linyanti Concession. Watch the sun set over the Linyanti river after a thrill-packed day of mokoro safaris, watching elephants, zebra and wild dog at play. Keen fishermen can experience the area’s unique fishing safaris, and you can opt for walking tours alongside more traditional safari vehicles. You’re sure to leave a part of your heart behind when you leave.
A land of open skies, friendly people and remarkable wildlife, Botswana is just waiting for you to explore. Even better, our Black Friday special (for bookings made on the 24 November 2017 only) brings you the opportunity to experience this incredible majesty for even less.
