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.

Get in touch and we'll create your perfect safari experience.

You'll visit Zimbabwe and Botswana's best wildlife areas. Launch yourself into serious game viewing in Hwange before stopping to catch your breath in Victoria Falls. Once in Botswana, count-off as many of Chobe's thousands (and thousands!) of elephants as you can, then explore the tranquil waterways of the Okavango Delta. Finally, get your fix of history, nature, cuisine, culture and wine in Cape Town.

"We thoroughly enjoyed Mma Dinare. We had leopard, lion, giraffe and buffalo on game drives and elephants right in camp plus lions feeding on a buffalo. The mokoro activity was also very enjoyable. It really is a very beautiful area with open areas that are covered in wild sage but then also areas with a lot of palm trees. Elephants were feeding on the trees in camp and so we could not go past them to our rooms but had to go back to main area to wait for them to finish. Apparently a very common occurrence to have elephants in camp! Great vibe in camp - relaxed, casual and attentive staff."

"Even before arriving at Simbavati, we saw giraffe and steenbok just next to the road and wildebeest crossing it plus a herd of approximately 40 impala nearby. Very beautiful setting, lovely scenery, attentive staff and personal experience. We were welcomed by a warthog grazing on the lush green lawns. This is a beautiful area and I enjoyed our guide, Krueger, very much as he did not only focus on finding game but made it a very enjoyable, productive game drive with information about plants, animal behaviour etc. We also went to the hyena den, saw a small breeding herd of buffalos and lots of elephants."

You’ll travel to remote and idyllic places in luxury and style. Start off in Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park, which is nestled between two rivers, where you can fish, canoe and enjoy game drives into the park. Continue the adventure at two of South Luangwa’s best walking camps. Then slow right down, take those shoes off and relax (or not) on Likoma Island in the middle of tranquil Lake Malawi. We love this itinerary as it combines two of Southern Africa’s lesser visited countries – perfect for more intrepid travellers.

"We had a particularly great stay at Chongwe River camp (now I understand why you pushed us to stay there for three days – definitely worth it!). We caught fish and saw a leopard, among many bird sightings and the “usual” animals. Our guide there was first-class."
