12 Days Best of Botswana

Botswana is one of the safest and the best countries to see wildlife in Africa. Okavango Delta, the biggest delta in the world is one of our highlights, but Moremi game reserve, Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls in the Zimbabwe will make your trip the best and memorable.

DAY 1

Khama Rhino Sanctuary

Serowe Khama Rhino Sanctuary (game drive inc.) After an early breakfast, we depart from Sandton, City Lodge travelling through Limpopo province heading to Botswana. The drive to our destination will take us about seven hours or more (this estimation takes into account border formalities and break stops). Once we cross the border, we drive straight to Serowe and check in at Serowe hotel before we go to Khama Rhino sanctuary for a sunset game drive in an open 4 wheel drive. A set dinner will be served at the restaurant. (1 x B, 1 x D) Read more

Our next destination is Maun, and this is a getaway to the Okavango Delta. After checking in, we go to Maun shopping centre to stock all we need for the next two days in the Delta.

Karin Kedem, Germany

Southern Tours & Safaris prepared that tour, that we booked very shortly before, in a perfect way and took care of everything 100 %. Our guide is a great game observer and we saw not only the Big 5 already after a short time. I appreciated his flexibility and admired his knowledge about history, animals, plants etc. A highly recommended guide who will fulfill all your travel ideas and wishes. Read more

Sylvia, Italy

Our guide was not only a very professional guide, but also a very polite, responsable and helpful person, he always did the very best to meet our expectations and to make this trip an unforgetable adventure. He knew the bush very well and without him we would not have seen so many animals. It did not take us much time to see the Big 5!! ​ During this trip we also had the possibilty to learn a lot about African culture. We are looking forward to planning our next trip with Southern tours!! Read more
