BOTSWANA LEGACY SAFARI
Relive the Golden Age of Safaris
7 days from US$6,986 (GP-TT1)
Step into the shoes of the early adventurers and discover Africa as it was meant to be seen. Experience extraordinary wildlife, beautiful landscapes and untouched water courses while contributing directly to the conservation of big cats and supporting local communities.
Days 1 – 4 OKAVANGO DELTA
Fly into Duba Explorers Camp, designed by National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, evoking the classic safari style of the 1920’s. A wildlife connoisseur’s delight, the camp embodies the spirit of exploration and is located on an island in the northern Okavango Delta, surrounded by thousands of animals.
The camp consists of five airy, stylishly furnished canvas tents on raised decks with a private verandah and en-suite facilities, offering guests the ultimate opportunity for private wildlife sightings.
Discover the Ngoga River system by boat or traditional canoes (mokoro), meandering through water channels created by hippos and elephant. The mokoro allows you to glide silently through this unique eco-system and experience the undisturbed water world around you.
Birding is unsurpassed, with spectacular species like the malachite kingfisher zipping past you in a burst of colour.
Vehicle safaris in this paradise allow for exciting encounters with predators such as lion, leopard and African wild dogs (painted wolf), resident to the area. Explore the islands, wetlands and plains on guided walks following the tracks and interpreting the signs of the wild. The year-round healthy herbivore population include elephant, buffalo and lechwe. You might even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of a rare sitatunga.
Accommodation: 3 nights at Duba Explorers Camp including all meals prepared by an executive chef, paired with hand-picked wine list; alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; air transfers and laundry services.
Days 4 – 7 SELINDA SPILLWAY
Flight by light aircraft to Selinda Explorers Camp, located on a remote stretch of the Selinda Spillway in northern Botswana.
Four traditional canvas tents ‘wow’ with the grandeur of the expedition-style décor – campaign furniture and vintage travelling trunks, lending an authentic atmosphere to this camp as you tread in the footsteps of the explorers Livingstone and Selous.
Wildlife viewing focuses mainly on guided walks and mokoro trips, but also open vehicle game drives in an area which is home to huge herds of elephant and buffalo. Lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog hunt these parts regularly. Good densities of giraffe and antelope – even roan and sable – and the recently spotted eland are possible sightings.
There is phenomenal bird life along the Spillway’s banks for those looking for some ‘lifers’.
Accommodation: 3 nights at Selinda Explorers Camp including all meals, air transfers, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and laundry services.
LEAVING A LEGACY
Duba Explorers Camp is a community empowerment project on land leased from five local communities, who in turn receive all of the lease revenue. Currently 80% of the staff come from these communities.
Selinda Explorers Camp has been hand-built to reduce impact on the environment. Run 100% on solar power, it has a grey water treatment plant, uses bore-hole water for drinking and focuses on activities which get back to nature and away from the need for engines – namely more walking and canoeing.
By saving a few pounds of space in your suitcase and ‘Packing for a Purpose’, you can bring supplies for the Conservation Education Program and Women’s Craft Groups, initiatives that allow travellers to make a priceless impact in the lives of local children and families.

“Recently I returned from one of my best safaris ever in the Greater Kruger Park. Sitting on the deck of my beautiful Singita suite, overlooking a rocky ridge where a ghostly fever tree stands tall, I watched a Kudu family carefully and silently approach the river to drink.
