In April 2020, Bolt heads to Southern Africa for a 4x4 safari across Botswana, including a visit to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls. Drive one of our 4x4-equipped over rugged trails, keeping your eye out for the Big 5 (lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino, leopard) and much more. We'll mix nights spent in comfortable lodges with wild rooftop-tent camping in the bush on this adventure across Southern Africa.

Additional Information

The majority of our time will be spent in Botswana, a country marked by it’s incredible biodiversity and dramatic landscapes, from the vast Kalahari desert to the Okavango river delta and Chobe National Park, home to Africa’s largest concentration of elephants.At the start of the trip, we’ll take a small propeller plane over the Delta for a birds eye view. Back on the ground, we’ll drive our 4x4 vehicles across challenging terrain, keeping keen eyes out for all of the Big 5: lions, elephants, rhinos and much more. 

A highly experienced guide will lead our group, unlocking the complex, interwoven web underlying these ecosystems. On this trip, the journey truly is the destination, because at any moment during our adventure you might experience the wildlife encounter of a lifetime.

Our trip mixes nights spent in comfortable lodges with wild camping in the bush. We’ll gather in camp around a fire, enjoying delicious dinner before climbing into rooftop tents to fall asleep to lions roaring and elephants trumpeting. It’s important to understand this trip is different from a typical safari, as most days we’ll travel through reserves, camping amongst the Big 5. We’ll also be traveling in November, the best time of year to view game, but also one of the hottest. Conditions will vary as we make our away across Botswana.

Expect an adventure on this journey from the Desert to the Delta. Our 4x4 vehicles will take us from our starting point in Maun into the Okavango Delta, through the incredibly rich Chobe National Park, and north to the border with Zimbabwe, crossing into this new country for a visit to Victoria Falls. From Victoria Falls we’ll travel south to the Kalahari, before returning to Maun.
