Botswana Wing Safari: What Adventure Women Are Saying

AdventureWomen travelers are passionately (and hopelessly) obsessed with Africa and its many treasures. Here are a few guest comments and photos from our African safari in Botswana in 2015 entitled (as we travel by private bush plane) our “Botswana Wing” Safari. 

“Forget wonderful or awesome. This trip is beyond that. Ohhhhh! And WOW! are the expletives that are more fitting!” -Chris N, GA

Our morning, afternoon, and sometimes night drives are incredible adventures, and our guides and trackers have a wealth of knowledge about the animals and the ecosystems we will be viewing. And they know just where to find baby cheetahs!

“The one thing I was dying to tell my family and friends about the trip was that I saw a cheetah take off at top speed. And never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would have sundowners [cocktail hour] in the middle of the migration of hundreds of elephants. What a thrill!” -Ellen B, MN

“Botswana was my 5th African safari [with AdventureWomen] and I certainly hope not my last. Everything was great—the wildlife, the camps, the guides and trackers, the food…, and flying in a microlight over Victoria Falls. Thank you for another wonderful trip.” -Diane S, WI

Since we are in a private concession at Lebala, it is possible to drive off-road when our guides spot the perfect photo opportunity…

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that it was possible to get so close to wild animals in the bush. And I was dying to tell my family about the spectacular size of Victoria Falls, which I experienced in a microlight plane that gave me the sensation of a soaring eagle!” -Sandra C, NC

Witness the spectacular views and beauty of Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world, doubling the height of Niagara Falls

“I found out I could still be excited by and enjoy some of life’s simpler pleasures — the thrill of seeing animals in their natural surroundings and not behind bars; the smell of clean air and wild sage and the incredible beauty of the stars….” -Margo H, IL

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would experience Africa…, and never in my wildest dreams will I say “never in my wildest dreams” again because anything is possible if we dare to take a chance. Thank you for making our dreams come true!” -Ellen V, NJ

Botswana – wild and free – is one of our favorite destinations in Africa! This custom-designed, “wing” (flying) safari takes us to 3 of the finest permanent luxury “fly-in” tented camps in Botswana. From private game concessions (less people!) we’ll explore the Okavango Delta and the Kwando Wilderness, before ending in amazing Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
