Premier Botswana Gold is a 9 night, three camp safari itinerary taking in a diverse range of habitats, of wildlife and of game viewing experiences. The safari offers complete luxury at three stunning camps.
The safari starts in the heart of the Okavango Delta at Jao Camp, a stylish mixed activity camp overlooking the delta floodplain, just a short flight by light aircraft from Maun, before moving northwards to Vumbura Plains Camp, a mixed activity camp which is located on one of the Okavango’s permanent water channels, where activities range from game viewing in open top 4×4 safari vehicles, through to guided walks and afternoons spent in a mekoros (a type of dugout canoe) gliding silently through the crystal clear Okavango waterways. Your safari finishes at Kings Pool, on the edge of a lagoon, named after Swedish royalty, and its surrounding woodlands which are home to huge herds of elephants.
The itinerary is tailor-made safari and can be adapted to suit your requirements.
