Why you'll love it
Explore the magic water wonderland of the Okavango Delta, filled to the brim with wildlife, before heading to the Seychelles islands for equal measures of relaxation and exhilarating ocean activities.
The Highlights Reel
There's just something so magical about water, isn't there? The ebb and flow remind us that time moves on and of all the wonders that lurk underneath. On this tour, we combine the two very different destinations of the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world, and Seychelles, one of the Indian Ocean Islands.
From a safari on a traditional mokoro boat, gliding silently and meeting the eyes of spectacular wildlife along the way, to snorkelling in the warm Indian Ocean, surrounded by a kaleidoscope of marine life, this tour truly combines the best of bush and beach for a safari and island adventure!
Your Spectacular Stops
The first stop of this unbelievable tour is the Okavango Delta in Botswana. As the largest inland delta in the world, it's a genuinely unique setting that seems to defy logic – and even science, by flooding in the dry season. A water paradise that lures many animals to quench their thirst, the game viewing is out of this world. Another very remote destination, you can only reach most of the lodges by boat or a small aircraft.
Other than your standard safari experiences like game drives, you can look forward to a mokoro safari, a traditional dugout canoe, gliding silently on the water for a different perspective, or even a helicopter flight for a bird's-eye view. The Okavango Delta is known for being home to the Big 5, plenty of birdlife, and some endangered species! You will certainly starts your African on a high note here.
Next up, you'll fly to Johannesburg, South Africa's "City of Gold" as it's a mining mecca. It's also an entertainment and shopping paradise, with plenty of high-end stores.
Although this is more of a stopover destination to your next stop, you can go out and see what Africa's business and shopping capital looks like! There's also a rich history in the city, from the Apartheid Museum to the Hector Pieterson Museum and Nelson Mandela's old home in Soweto.
If you think of Africa, you might not immediately think of a tropical island. But Seychelles, part of the Indian Ocean Islands, offer some of the very best powdery beaches in the world. Yes, the world! Picture lush green palm trees and huge black boulders framed by spotless white beaches and crystal clear turquoise waves.
Here you can explore the many on-land activities, like hiking through the national parks and visiting botanical gardens, as well as underwater activities like snorkelling, scuba diving, and more. You can also get a taste of the local culture and cuisine on the largest island, Mahé. Sign us up – stat!
