The Whole Enchilada

Who says you can't do it all? The Whole Enchilada is for people who want to see beyond Botswana and track a longer dotted line across the map. These options will provide a wider exploration of Southern Africa.

Combine your safari in Botswana with some further exploration. Discover the wineries around Cape Town or if you're seeking even more safari, take on Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park or get immersed in Kruger. A longer trek out to Africa will give you a more rounded experience from culture and game viewing to stunning landscapes. Just make sure to save enough spare pages in your passport!

The below are some suggestions of how you might want to get it all done, but feel free to ask us for more suggestions of where to go, more methods of how to get there and more ideas about how to explore it.

"What a lovely experience at Bomani - we expected a small tent on stilts but it was huge! There is a waterhole right beside the camp where so many elephants and other game came during the evenings. I have never seen so many elephants together before as what we saw at one pan. We must have seen 600 plus in only a few hours!"

"Overall we had a wonderful experience, with no small thanks to Safari Specialists for your assistance, advice, organisation and wonderful service. Muchenje was a beautiful lodge in such a fantastic location overlooking the river and plains below.  We loved the Chobe River cruise being up close and personal with the elephants swimming across the river and frolicking in the water and mud."

"Mana Pools has the most idyllic setting on the Zambezi River, facing north with spectacular sunsets. The team are warm and professional and we loved the relaxed atmosphere and flexibility to the camp. The wildlife is extraordinary, the tented accommodation very comfortable and the hospitality very attentive. I'm planning to visit again!"
