Our specialists say:
A set departure tour that ventures around Botswana's hot-spots and finishes off at Victoria Falls
This itinerary is suited for a single traveller and couples: the set tour takes guests into the heart of Botswana; the small group tour will enjoy an 18 day tour, with an extra day added to either side. The Leopard Safari tour begins in Maun and heads north to the Kalahari Game Reserve, before reaching the Okavango Delta and the Mormemi Game Reserve. Finally the tour comes to an end at Victoria Falls - one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
