The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s most magnificent anomalies. In the middle of the desert lies an 18 000 square kilometre sprawling oasis of crystal clear water supporting an abundance of wildlife. Add to this the splendour of one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the largest curtain of water falling on the planet, Victoria Falls. Exploring these two geological marvels and all the wildlife they support is a winning safari combination.

Duba Plains, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Nights 1 – 4

Duba Plains Camp sits in the north west of the Okavango Delta among a matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains and woodland on a 33,000 hectare private reserve. It is also the place that Great Plains Conservation co-founders, National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, chose for their home base.

Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite

The 5 bespoke tents are designed to blend into the landscape and evoke the classic African safari style of the 1920’s. All the rooms are raised on recycled railway-sleeper decking and with stunning views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of wildlife parading past. It’s renowned for the being the heartland of the intense battles between the age-old enemies, the lions and buffalo. The lions are up to 15 percent larger than other lions from moving through the water channels and these are renowned for being highly active during the day. High densities of elephant, buffalo, lechwe and leopard and unusual Kalahari species like aardwolf and pangolin make it a wildlife mecca.

Mombo Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Nights 5 – 8

From here head to Mombo Camp, the place of plenty, in the heart of the Okavango’s heart. Located just off the northern tip of Chief’s Island, the largest landmass in the Okavango, Mombo boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators and is considered to be the most fertile area for game viewing in Africa. Added to this high concentration of cats one of their greatest conservation successes is the reintroduction of black and white rhino into the wilds of Botswana.

Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite

Our recently-rebuilt flagship camp maintains the integrity of its pristine environment through the use of natural materials, minimal human footprint and 100% solar status. Elevated on wooden decks beneath towering shade trees, Mombo overlooks a floodplain teeming with game. Elegant, expansive guest tents celebrate Mombo traditions while a large deck and plunge pool are ideal vantage points from which to observe the passing wildlife.

Victoria Falls Hotel, Zimbabwe

Nights 9 – 10

The last stop is to marvel at the dramatic views of the Victoria Falls whilst staying in the classic luxury of the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Why it’s A Wild Again Favourite

Built by the British in 1904, it was originally conceived as accommodation for workers on the Cape-to-Cairo railway and today it is a famous luxury brand and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. Victoria Falls is a massive spectacle 1,708 metres wide and 108 metres high, making it one and a half times wider than Niagara Falls and twice as high. Explore it with a private walking tour, from the air in a helicopter, brave a bungee jump into the gorge or navigate its rapids in a river rafting adventure. This itinerary will satisfy a desire for splendour and action.
