Happy 2021, everyone!
No - I didn't get the year wrong. I'm just letting you know about a great way to celebrate next year. (2020 trip is filled)
From the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi to the Okavango Delta
and everything in between!
Botswana!2021
May 26 - June 8
This safari explores three very different and beautiful environments in Botswana, with their attendant flora and fauna, and three different styles of accommodation, from mobile safari tenting to glamping in the treetops. The map below gives you an idea of where we'll be.

Itinerary
May 26: Arrival!
Arrive in Johannesburg, where we spend one night in a guesthouse in the country outside the city. Arrangements can be made if you decide to come earlier to spend more time in South Africa.

May 27: Maun, Botswana
We leave early this morning to fly to Maun, Botswana. We can spend the afternoon looking around the town, and in the evening will be briefed on what to expect over the next three days. We spend the night in Maun.
May 28 -31: * Kalahari Skies mobile safari - no fixed address!
After a night in Maun, we head out for three days with Kalahari Skies on a mobile safari. We are headed towards the Khwai area east of the Okavango Delta, which offers a mix of grassland, forests, and winding waterways. This is where we'll see most of the more familiar African animal species, and will drive out daily (and perhaps at night!) in our two vehicles. Our group size - fourteen - has been chosen to make sure that everyone has a window.
* The website doesn't show the more private tents we will have, with attached 'facilities'.

May 31: Maun overnight.
We return to Maun to spend the night before heading out to...
June 1-4: Camp Kalahari
En route to our second 'safari home' we stop at Baines Baobabs for a picnic lunch. Camp Kalahari is on the northern edge of the Makgadikgadi Pan, and is where we get the chance to see meerkats and perhaps aardvarks, aardwolves, korhaans, bat-eared foxes, and several other less common critters. This is our experience of the 'real' Kalahari Desert - dry, dry, dry at this time of year.
June 4-7: Setari Camp
We fly from the airstrip at Camp Kalahari to Setari Camp. Be prepared for a stunning change of landscape - a water wonderland, which we can see evolve as we fly over the Delta. Setari Camp is in the northern permanent water area of the Okavango Delta, with it's own specialized plants and animals.
There's the possibility of a morning helicopter excursion to Tsodilo Hills , a UNESCO World Heritage site, for an additional cost.

June 7:
Back to Johannesbburg and a night there before departure. You may opt to go elsewhere from Setari, such as Chobe/Kasane and Victoria Falls, which is very easy to arrange.
Some people may choose to fly out of Johannesburg directly from the airport upon arrival back from Maun. For most international flights there is time to make the transfer.
If not...
Overnight in Johannesburg.

June 8, 2020 - or later - departure from Johannesbburg.

The cost May 26 to June 8 is $8350.00 USD. Since it's all in Botswana, and some of the places are already heavily booked I am asking for an initial deposit of $1650 to hold your place. Financial details  here .
