All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t
We’ve thought carefully about how to make your travel efficient and easy in Botswana. Your first stop is Victoria Falls, and you’ll spend some time here before travelling overland to Chobe National Park. After your time in Chobe, you’ll fly into the Okavango Delta by light aircraft. This is a great trip for both first-timers to Africa and safari veterans.
"From game-drives and mokoro expeditions in the Okavango Delta, to boating in the Chobe National Park; from quad-biking out into the stark landscape of the Makgadikgadi, to taking in the culture of the oldest bloodline on earth, by visiting the Khoi San. Botswana is the ultimate safari destination and it has really got it all."
Rob Barber, Golden Africa MD and Botswana resident

Top tip: aim for the shoulder season of April and May to get some fantastic rates and value for money. You might get the odd shower but it is worth it.

Weather watch: November to April is rainy across the region but often short, sharp downpours that clear quickly. People say Victoria Falls is best when water levels are low (July to December) but its great all year.
A few more tips...
- Choose either the Zimbabwean or Zambian side of the Falls.
- We think the Zimbabwean side is better for a short stay and the Zambian side for longer stays.
- Get ready for an adrenaline rush! Bungee jump the falls, get close to the spray by helicopter or raft the gorge.
Chobe National Park
- All your guide to plan your safari activities - they know best!
- Chobe gets busy, but we have selected lodges that try to avoid the crowds.
- They permit no night drives and walking in the National Park.
- The Delta is vast and all our lodges are in different sections of the Okavango wilderness.
- Visit in the dry season when the Delta is flooded for the full range of boat activities.
- Can’t visit in the dry season? Don’t worry. There are pros and cons to every season. Chat to us about your options.
