Begin your journey in the hidden gem of the Linyanti Wildlife Management area, tucked away in the northeastern corner of the Chobe National Park. Due to its remoteness, the Linyanti is a gorgeous, unspoiled region of waterways and lagoons, riverine forests, huge trees and palm tree islands. It is renowned as one of the best game viewing areas in the region, supporting a great diversity of wildlife, with large herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra.

Your journey culminates in the pristine Okavango Delta. This remarkable environment constantly adapts and changes with the ebb and flow of the floodwaters that seasonally inundate large portions of the delta. Although dry for two-thirds of the year, during the winter months the rising floodwaters create a maze of marshes, small wooded islands and shallow lagoons. On the edges of the delta, where land blurs with water, breeding herds of elephants splash gently through shallow channels, the long necks of a family of giraffes materialize slowly out of the delta skyline and graceful sitatunga antelope hide in the reeds.
