Come experience the all-new Atzaro Okavango Camp, a permanent camp located in the heart of the Okavango Delta. So for the first time ever, we will be able to offer a true ABC water experience to combine with our other locations, Khwai (Moremi area), Linyanti (Chobe area), and during the Emerald Season, Nxai Pan.
Set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession, this beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time. Watching these animals maneuver through the water is an exceptional experience for even the most travelled safari veterans.
Indulge in a breathtaking African safari experience at Khwai Tented Camp, where you’ll witness the incredible wildlife of Moremi National Park, the oldest protected section of the Okavango Delta. Imagine spotting lions, leopards, elephants, and giraffes roaming free in their natural habitat, all while immersed in the beauty of the African wilderness.
Even amongst the most discerning of travelers, the Linyanti Channel is fast becoming Botswana’s most sought-after wildlife haven. Nestled between the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rich yet diverse ecosystem that is fed by a permanent river flow. At the core of this wildlife haven is Linyanti Ebony, this intimate camp is made up of just four tents making it perfect for a more private and family oriented safari lodge experience.
In a life of deadlines and busy cities, the new source of luxury is having wide-open space, having your undivided attention on exploring and relaxing. At Migration Expeditions in Nxai Pan National Park, we offer just that – the unbelievable calm that comes from gazing at the horizon and having space to yourself.

Botswana Destination Guide
Resting silently in the arid grassland are a pair of black-maned Kalahari lions. On a Botswana safari holiday, this is not unexpected. In the enormous Kalahari Trans-frontier Park, these lions have become desert-adapted, and live alongside many other species: springbok, hyena, and the very sociable meerkat, to name but a few.
In contrast to this arid region, flying into the Okavango Delta on a small plane reveals an ever-changing floodplain filled with rivers, lagoons, swamps, islands, and channels. Moremi Game Reserve, in the eastern part of the Delta, is surrounded by various unfenced and privately managed wildlife concessions.
Super luxurious bush camps and lodges in the Delta are exclusive, with excellent guides—among the best in Africa. To make the most of your time in this magnificent wilderness, you need to carefully select the right accommodations. That’s no easy task. Unless you have the knowledge and experience of an Enchanting Travels destination expert, who can guide you with the right choices, based on the season and your personal wildlife-viewing interests. Walking safaris, game drives, and water safaris—we can plan them all, to give you a comprehensive experience of this fascinating ecosystem. Picture this: As your mokoro (canoe) gently glides through the water, you spot a pod of submerged hippos. Colorful birds flit by or forage on the banks, while an African Fish Eagle suddenly sweeps down to grab its prey from the water.
Dense with animals is Chobe National Park in the country’s north, most famous for its huge herds of elephants adding up to an incredible 100,000 animals. We’ll book you into the best lodges along the Chobe riverfront, to make sure that so long you are in the area, your animal encounters never stop.
As a tourist destination, Botswana has traditionally opted for a high price / low numbers formula, in part as a conservation strategy, and also to differentiate itself from neighboring tourist countries who follow a mass market tourism policy. However, that isn't to say that Botswana is an expensive high-end destination. In many respects costs and quality compare to neighboring South Africa. However, the two jewels in Botswana's tourism crown (the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park) are quite exclusive, although there are budget options.
For independent travelers touring the region, Botswana offers an interesting contrast to the poverty of its northern neighbors and is free from the apartheid hangover that still blights South Africa. Botswana has a long-established tourism industry and levels of service are good, hassles are low and tourist numbers are minimal away from the main parks, allowing for some magical 'off the beaten path' experiences.
