Description

hwangeCelebrating a 30th anniversary, this safari is composed of two couples that are all friends. One of the couples was inspired to explore more of Southern Africa after enjoying an overland safari adventure in Namibia last year.

For a good portion of their trip they are on one of our favorite safaris –  a Botswana Mobile Camping Safari, which has 4 camps in 4 different areas consisting of the Okavango Delta, Moremi & Khwai areas, Savuti Channel and Chobe National Park. The group has one transit night in Victoria Falls with a tour of the Falls before moving on to Hwange National Park for 4 nights. Here, they experience excellent game viewing as well as a chance to visit community and conservation projects.

We know this trip is filled with adventures with 8 nights camping, incredible views like the Falls and unforgettable wildlife viewing at Hwange; this safari is a great way for everlasting friendships to grow.
