Botswana Safari - Zimbabwe
It’s one thing to watch nature documentaries from the comfort of your couch–it’s definitely another thing to get up close and personal with the wildlife of Botswana. During this unparalleled safari experience, you’ll travel in open jeeps and boats in search of elephants, giraffes, lions and exotic birds before resting up in our comfortable tented camps and even a house boat. Be sure to pack your camera—it might just be the most important piece of gear you bring with you.
