Celeste's Classic Botswana & Vic Falls Safari

Celeste's Classic Botswana & Vic Falls Safari


Celeste’s tour takes in the very best highlights of Botswana and culminates at the majestic Victoria Falls.
Celeste explains, “Botswana is my favourite safari destination and I love the contrast of the dry land with the water. Here you have a wide choice of activities including game drives, bush walks, boat rides, mokoro trips and even fishing. It offers great variety and it is very convenient travelling between the camps by small aircraft – also giving you a bird's-eye view of the landscape. My guests always rave about these camps, good service and excellent game viewing is the norm!
“Start this tour with a relaxing stay on an Okavango Island. Here your time will be spent meandering on mokoros (dug-out canoes) on the channels of the Okavango or exciting bush walks. Thereafter you head to the Moremi Game Reserve and spend your time in the game-rich Khwai concession. The Savuti National Park is a game viewing mecca and here you get to see the dry landscapes of the country contrasting with the Okavango Delta and Moremi. This area is well known for leopard sightings and the fact that the Savuti channel has started flowing again also attracts more animals. Lastly you make your way back to the Chobe River for some more game drives as well as a river cruise which will get you up close to elephants. You end the trip off at the Victoria Falls and here you can walk in the Rainforest or take part in some of the adrenalin activities offered in this village.”
