Okavango Delta

This is your chance to explore Botswana’s prized jewel, the Okavango Delta. Over 11 000 km3 of seasonal floodwater travels from the neighbouring Angola Highlands to fill this inland river basin to create a home to more than 2 000 plants, 450 bird, 65 fish and over 200 000 large mammal species.

Known as the predator capital of the world, this package includes time in the Moremi Game Reserve. The wildlife viewing here is exceptional and includes lion, leopard, spotted hyena and cheetah and African wild dogs. This strong presence of predators is supported by the abundance of prey.

Moremi

Moremi Game Reserve initially consisted mostly of the Mopane Tongue area, but in the 1970s the royal hunting grounds, known as Chief’s Island, were added. It is home to the most endangered species of large mammals: the cheetah, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dog and lion. Over 500 bird species and over a 1.000 species of plants are also recognized in the Moremi. This ecosystem is amongst the richest in Africa. 

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa, and the world's  second-largest, with an incredible 148 mammalian species

( more than any other in the world), over 500 birds and 114 reptile species.

This home of the big 5 is larger than The country of Israel and the state of New Jersey. The park boasts an almost endless sea of open bushveld which stretches over 2 million hectares, leading Kruger to be considered one of the largest parks in the whole of Africa.
