An Adventure to Botswana

BOTSWANA:  Desert Sunset. Delta Dawn.
June 29 – July 9, 2018

Join Kim Cavendish, former President/CEO of the Museum of Discovery and Science, for an adventure wrapped in luxury in Botswana as you wing your way from camp to camp on small planes. No lines, no check-in, just the cheerful hello of the pilot as he tosses your bag in the back of your ‘taxi in the sky.’

First stop is the Kalahari Desert and the otherworldly Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where a glowing, white expanse of natural salt deposits create glittering mirages that seem to reach out into the horizon endlessly. The nearby Nxai Pans are home to an array of animal and plant life, including the giant “upside down” Baobab trees that make the African skyline so spectacular.

Then you’re back on the plane for the most spectacular view over the Okavango. A wetland wilderness of looping channels, and islands forested with palms and wide grassy floodplains, the Delta is home to a magnificent array of iconic birds and animals, from lion and elephant, to the ‘spirit of the Delta’, Pel’s Fishing Owl. Explore this natural paradise in open 4X4 vehicles, on foot, and in mokoros (dugout canoes.)
