The Miraculous Delta explores the Botswana's subtle and spectacular sceneries, from shady lagoons and meandering waterways to riverine forests, for some of Africa’s finest game viewing. We’ve lined up the country's very best safari guides to lead our small-group trips, which coincide with two particularly apt seasons, and carefully chosen delightful camps perfectly in tune with the time of year. 

In the green season, we pay close attention to the Kalahari, which is in top form, bursting with new life. We drive into the well-named Deception Valley and walk with a shaman of the San bushmen, learning about ancient tracking, hunting, and gathering ways. And we spend time at Linyanti Tented Camp in the Linyanti, a remote, grandly gorgeous reserve in Botswana’s far north, with canoe trips and the chance to see swimming elephants.

In the high season, after savoring a few days in the Linyanti, we have special access to the alluringly rustic Gomoti Camp, a superb place to observe lions and wild dogs on game drives. Delving into the heart of the delta, we revel in wildlife based from the inspiring Little Vumbura camp, where we pole about by mokoro.

Don’t forget to ask about our optional pre-trip extension to Victoria Falls, one of the planet’s most thunderously great cataracts. We fly to Livingstone, Zambia, and drive to cool, comfortable, tented Toka Leya Camp, a few minutes’ drive upriver from the falls.
