Romantic Chobe, Delta & Mozambique Island

Spend 15 days enjoying the best of both worlds: a classic big game safari in Botswana and a private island getaway off the dazzling tropical coast of Mozambique.

Kick off with a stay at an elegant lodge on the wooded escarpment overlooking the Chobe River – one of Africa’s top destinations for elephants – and then explore two different regions of the legendary Moremi Game Reserve and Okavango Delta by traditional canoe, motorboat and 4X4 – the game viewing is excellent and the bird watching phenomenal.

Then be whisked away to Mozambique’s Azura @ Quilalea Private Island to spend a week on a secluded Indian Ocean paradise, relaxing on pristine beaches and snorkelling off untouched coral reefs.
