Curated by Safari Guru, this Botswana Safari and Victoria Falls holiday package epitomises the blend of wildlife and landscapes that define southern Africa's charm.

Experience an authentic 9-night adventure designed for families and friends, from the pristine wilderness of Botswana's savannah to the awe-inspiring sights of the majestic Victoria Falls, this journey promises to be an unforgettable introduction to the wonders of the African continent.
Botswana boasts many world-renown luxury safari properties, ranging from the classic, authentic canvas camps to the uber-luxurious offerings; still, all share magnificent wildlife spectacles!
A Botswana safari would not be complete without a trip into the iconic Okavango Delta. Here, your safari adventure kicks off as you explore the watery wonderland in the permanent channels around Setari Camp in the heart of the Delta. From here, you will enjoy a pure Delta experience, inhabited by abundant birdlife and wildlife unique to this exceptional ecosystem.
Your second stop is Khwai Leadwood Camp, located just northeast of the Delta and adjacent to the famous Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park. This landscape offers some of Botswana's most iconic wildlife and diverse ecosystems. Imagine yourself surrounded by graceful elephants too, stealthy lions and majestic giraffes. Botswana's commitment to sustainable ecotourism ensures that you'll have the opportunity to observe these animals in their natural habitat while contributing to their conservation.
As your safari adventure concludes, a new world of wonder awaits you at Zimbabwe's famous Victoria Falls. Known as "The Smoke that Thunders," this natural wonder is a testament to nature's raw power and beauty. The sheer magnitude of the falls will leave you speechless as you stand before the curtain of water that plummets into the Zambezi River below.
Setari Camp is your gateway to an enchanting world of untamed beauty, where your days are filled with thrilling activities that bring you face-to-face with the Delta's remarkable wildlife.
Expert guides lead you on water activities and game drives, where you'll encounter iconic African species, from gigantic hippos and elephants to ever-lurking crocodiles. Whether you're an avid wildlife enthusiast, a nature lover, or simply seeking a serene retreat, Setari Camp promises an unforgettable journey.
Located on a picture-perfect palm island in the very heart of the Okavango Delta, Setari Camp has eight light and airy tents, including a family unit. Each tent cleverly combines authentic luxury and is meticulously designed to offer panoramic views of the Delta's dynamic landscapes.
