Short Description

Revert to the safaris of old on Ker & Downey’s 12-day Botswana walking safari combined with a canoe trail through Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Selinda Spillway. This safari by foot and canoe provides intimate and hands-on interaction with Botswana’s unique water-fed ecosystems and concludes with relaxing luxury near Zambia’s Victoria Falls.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Itinerary Description:

Before embarking on your Botswana walking safari, take advantage of a relaxing day in Johannesburg, recovering from your international flight. Your first Botswana walking safari takes place on the edge of the Okavango Delta's floodplains at Footsteps Across the Delta, where the emphasis is hands-on exploration of the surrounding environment as the first African explorers did: in mokoros and on foot. Each day's walking safari offers a completely different experience along the water's edge and uncovers the bush's many surprises, whether semi-aquatic lechwe, humorous warthog, lion, or birdlife.

After three days on foot on your Botswana walking safari, depart for your four-day canoe safari along Botswana's mysteriously ephemeral Selinda Spillway. The Selinda Canoe Trail reverts back to the spirit of safaris of old, allowing for tranquil paddles down the waterway, impromptu game walks and birding along the shoreline, and magical fireside evenings camped under the stars.

Following four nights immersed in the sound of the bush, it's time to cross the border to indulge in some of Zambia's unrivaled luxury at Royal Chundu. Situated on a private nine-mile concession of the Zambezi River, you are in the perfect spot to experience the dramatic Victoria Falls and surrounding wildlife as the infamous David Livingstone did 150 years ago, by canoe, mokoro, or sunset river cruise.
