Mosi O Tunyo

Mosi O Tunyo (Victoria Falls)
Botswana is one of the most fascinating countries in Southern Africa.

My preferred itinerary starts in Maun, goes north to Okavango - both to the private reserves like Kwando or Kwara, or to the National Parks like Moremi, continues through Savuti into Chobe, and ends crossing the Chobe river into Zambia, final destiny being Livingstone and the unique Mosi O Tunyo (Vic Falls).

Given the short distances involved, this fantastic itinerary can easily be done in one week.

Two highlights: the Okavango Delta, a magic seasonally flodded plain in the middle of the Kalahari desert, and Chobe, with its hundreds of thousands of elephants.
