Your journey explores two unique wilderness areas that have been shaped by the southernmost fault lines of Africa’s iconic Great Rift Valley. Formed by seasonal flooding due to rains that have fallen in the Angolan Highlands, this fascinating inland delta is frequently inundated during the dry winter months. Our safari begins in the heart of the Okavango exploring the Xigera Concession from the beautiful island that is home to Xigera Camp.
Heading north to Linyanti Tented Camp, you will have the opportunity to explore the riverine woodlands of the Linyanti River – famed for the sharp change in its course due to the fault lines of the Great Rift. The river and associated floodplains are a hive of activity as large numbers of general game such as impala, zebra and kudu head to the life- giving water. The presence of these animals attracts the associated predators, in particular leopard and wild dog. The Linyanti Concession also has a reputation for its large concentrations of elephant.
Explorations are led by highly skilled and qualified professional guides with an incredible passion for the natural regions they work in. Sharing the adventure and guiding you on this journey of discovery combined with their vast knowledge of the natural world, history and culture are their professions and personal hobby. Many of our guides are also skilled photographers and can assist you in taking away amazing wildlife photographs. Your guide will host you for the duration of safari, providing you with a consistent, detailed interpretation that is shaped to your specific interests.
