Botswana Birding

Tour Overview
The Okavango Delta and greater Chobe river area of northern Botswana offers some of the best birding in all of Southern Africa. Join us for an 8 night luxury birding safari with an expert local guide as we look to find the birding specials of this unique area. Besides the incredible birding diversity of the area it also offers some of the best game viewing experiences in Africa.

We will divide our time between three luxurious lodges and enjoy the stunning aerial views as we fly between the lodges. We will start off with three nights at Camp Moremi situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta at the northern end of the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From here we venture north and spend three nights at Chobe Savanna Lodge, situated on the Namibian side of the Chobe river; perfect for exploring the famous river and Impalila Island. Our last two nights will be at the luxurious 5 star Chobe Game Lodge, the only lodge situated within Chobe National Park. We will enjoy the birding and game viewing on a combination of open vehicle game drives, boat cruises and guided walks.
