About this trip

This trip takes you through some of the most spectacular landscapes in Africa, from the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans (where you can visit a local meerkat colony) to the incomparable Okavango Delta. Here, you'll put on your best Attenborough voice as you take morning and nocturnal game drives, spotting elephants, hippos and if you're lucky, some predators. In the safari portion of the trip you'll be staying in either comfy lodges or luxe pre erected bell tents under the stars, so you're never too far from all of that natural beauty. And we're not done yet. The trip has a showstopping finale: tickets to the Okavango Delta Music festival, a unique celebration of African music, art and culture, where you'll dance the night away and get a true taste of the traditional cultures of the Delta.
