11-Nights Botswana, South Africa & Zambia - Tauck World Discovery
Botswana, South Africa & Zambia
Welcome to a celebration of Southern Africa's natural world... specifically the national parks of Botswana and Zambia, which together are amongst the largest concentrations of unspoiled wilderness and wildlife left on the planet... One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment. If you want to get closer than an open-air safari vehicle can take you, you've come to the right place. One of our most compelling trips in Botswana and South Africa tours some of the continent's most spectacular wildlife reserves. Start with a two-night stay in Livingstone, Zambia - where you'll embark on a "Rhino Walking Safari," visit remarkable Victoria Falls, and begin a safari adventure that takes you through the awe-inspiring national parks of Zambia and Botswana, home to some of the largest concentrations of big game on the planet, including Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Okavango Delta, and the Makgadikgadi Pans on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Your journey concludes with three nights in Cape Town, South Africa, at the continent's southernmost tip - a dazzling metropolis of exotic urban life, art, history, and culture. The landscapes you'll visit (from rainforests and marshlands to savannahs, salt plains and desert) are as diverse and fascinating as the wild creatures that inhabit them, and the variety of means you have to meet them: including safari vehicle, motorboat, 1920s vintage steam train and on foot, in the company of a Bushman guide and tracker. Stay in luxury tented camps and five-star luxury hotels, view the Okavango Delta by mokoro canoe and helicopter, enjoy sundowners under a blazing African sunset, dine at private homes, in elegant hotels and under the stars in the bushveld... this is the Africa you've been looking for.

Cape Town is southern Africa's most beautiful, most romantic and most-visited city. Few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the Cape Peninsula spine, which slides like the mighty tail of the continent into the Atlantic Ocean. By far the most striking - and famous - of its sights is Table Mountain, frequently mantled by clouds, and rearing up from the middle of the city to provide a constantly changing vista to the suburbs below. Table Mountain is the city's solid core which divides the city into distinct zones with public gardens, wilderness, forests, hiking routes, vineyards and desirable residential areas trailing down it's lower slopes.
Livingstone is less than 10 miles from beautiful Victoria Falls and is a delightful old colonial town named after the explorer David Livingstone. As Zambian tourism increases, more people are staying in Livingstone and new enterprises seem to be springing up. There are also many lovely lodges on the banks of the Zambezi.
The Okavango delta is one of the world’s largest inland water systems. It's headwaters start in Angola’s western highlands, with numerous tributaries joining to form the Cubango river, which then flows through Namibia (called the Kavango) and finally enters Botswana, where it is then called the Okavango. It is a unique ecosystem with large populations of African mammals, birds, and other animals and is one of the last totally unspoiled areas in Africa. This destination is perfect for camping, picture taking, walking safaris, and mokoro (canoe) excursions.
Moremi Game Reserve
Moremi, hunted by the
long as 10,000 years ago, was initiated by the Batawana tribe and
covers some 4,871 km2, as the eastern section of the
Okavango Delta. Moremi is mostly described as one of the most beautiful
wildlife reserves in Africa. It combines mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. It
is the great diversity of plant and animal life that makes Moremi
so well known.
The idea to create a
game reserve first originated in 1961 and was approved by the Batawana
at a kgotla in 1963.
The area was then officially designated as a game reserve in April
1965 and was initially run by the Fauna Conservation Society of
Ngamiland. Moremi was then extended to include Chiefs Island in
1976. In August 1979 the reserve was taken over by the Department
of Wildlife and National Parks. A further extension was added as
recently as 1992 and now the reserve contains within its boundaries
approximately twenty percent of the Okavango Delta.
