                                              Botswana is “the” destination for the intrepid traveller looking for
                                              adventure with luxury. The Okavango delta is Botswana’s best known
                                              natural attraction, an inland waterway covering thousands of square
                                              miles with narrow channels and lagoons. Wildlife flourishes in this
                                              pristine environment which also attracts hundreds of bird species.
                                              Our Wings Over Botswana safari is the ideal introduction to this
                                              fascinating country as you travel to Chobe, Moremi and Okavango,
