This classic African safari in Botswana and Zimbabwe appeals to every woman’s sense of wonder and for some, a childhood dream of encountering African wildlife at home in their natural habitat. You arrive as a solo traveler but quickly find yourself among safari friends on this foray into the Okavango Delta deep in the African bush in Botswana and Zimbabwe. Imagine zebras and giraffes passing so close to you that no binoculars are needed! Socialize with your fellow adventurers as you enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on the patio of your tent, gazing out over water and grasslands at the elephants and other wildlife that regularly congregate there! Daily guided African game drives in search of wildlife combined with luxurious tented camp accommodations each night treat you to the classic African safari experience as you go to sleep listening to the sounds of African animals as they drink and graze nearby.
Out in the wild, on your first safari day of adventure, walk along the bone-dry salt pan of Makgadikgadi Pans National Park watching for cheetahs, antelope, and meerkats. You will traverse the legendary Okavango Delta and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in search of hippopotamus, zebras, warthogs, greater kudu, giraffes, leopards, and rhinoceros. Your camp in Moremi Game Reserve is situated right near a local water hole that draws the African wildlife to it. Game drives by night allow you to search for rare nocturnal species of wildlife like aardvarks and porcupines, while your game walks on foot by day offers a more intimate connection with Africa as you experience the thrill of wildlife grazing just a few hundred feet away. Poling in a traditional canoe across the lagoon joining the Khwai and Sable Alley Rivers, you discover huge flocks of brightly-colored African birds and photograph the river’s massive crocodiles.
