In the footsteps of Livingstone

(Botswana - Zimbabwe)

On this route, we propose an escape into the wilderness, taking a speedboat through the labyrinth of canals that form the Okavango by discharging its waters into the Kalahariin the heart of Africa. It is the world's largest wildlife sanctuary, the real lost river, the kingdom of crocodile, elephant and hippo, the gateway to our adventure.

It's not a bad plan to explore its maze of reeds and water lilies in a quiet mokorowhile herds of elephants and the nearby snoring of hippos break the silence of the sunset. Or better still, fly over it in a light aircraft...

From the Okavango Delta, we will follow the route followed by great explorers such as Livingstone, Baines o Chapman when they crossed the Kalahari Desert. Their footsteps will lead us to the Nxai pan and to MakgadikgadiThe world's largest salt flat, in the interior of which lies the most hidden pearl in the world. Botswanathe sacred island from Kubu. There, among rocks and gigantic baobabs, We will camp to enjoy the best starry sky you could ever imagine. Simply unforgettable.

From Kubuwe will continue along that mythical route that led to Livingstone until Victoria Fallsby taking a break in the Chobe National Parkfamous for its large herds of elephants, to make a safari boat on the river and be able to see much more than just the the big 5.

Upon arrival at the falls, we will stay at the foot of the falls on the side of the ZimbabweThe best location we can dream of because, contrary to what he said, it is the best location in the world. Livingstone on arriving at KubuThis expedition will be all about pleasure.
