Big Five Botswana Luxury Botswana, Linyanti and Delta

When we dreamed up this adventure, we all said the same thing: “Take me there. Now.” Picture it: 10 day Luxury Botswana, Linyanti and Delta, a trio of exquisite camps, set in the pristine wilderness of two serious safari strongholds – the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti. It’s dynamite. 

Once just a large puddle of plain old Kalahari sand, Botswana’s complex system of seasonal floods and rivers attracts bird and mammal species in their hundreds. And you certainly won’t have a hard time finding them. 

You’ll start out with thrilling game drives among the big cats, wild dogs and carmine bee-eaters of the Linyanti, before exploring the game-rich Savute channel by helicopter. And then you’re off to the crystal clear waters and grassy floodplains of the world’s largest inland delta, which heaves with everything your safari heart could possibly desire. From insane birdlife, rare sitatunga sightings and sunrise mokoro safaris in the watery Jao Concession to the best game viewing on the planet on Chief’s Island, we’re sorry-not-sorry to say: you’ve peaked.


  • Epic chance encounters with the Linyanti’s big cats and wild dogs.
  • Rare bird sightings at every turn along the waterways of the Jao Concession.
  • Gliding through a sea of waterlilies and tiny reed frogs in a mokoro.
  • Catching sight of the Big 5 on Chief’s Island – and just about everything else.
  • Four-figure thread counts, five-star service and endless wine lists.

  • For the adventurous, book a scenic helicopter flip over the Savute channel at dawn.

Break it down Itinerary overview

You’ll board a small bush plane bound for the aptly-named DumaTau – meaning lion’s roar – where three action-packed days along a 45km stretch of the Linyanti River await. Action that comes to you. (Think wild dog-impala takedowns over breakfast and leopards on the boardwalk at night.) When you’re not tearing off in search of predator action or watching elephants drink from your private plunge pool, you'll be sipping a sundowner around the floating fire pit on Osprey Lagoon, counting the hippos – and your blessings, too.

It’s time to swap the dusty stretches of the Linyanti for the winding, waterlily-dotted channels of the Okavango and three nights at the elegant Jao. This is the watery side of your delta experience. You’ll spend your days silently skirting hippos, elephants and crocs in a mokoro – a traditional dugout canoe – and spotting one rare bird after another. And after a nightcap in the library, under the watchful eye of a towering giraffe skeleton, you’ll drift off to sleep each night to the gentle pip-pip-pipping of bell frogs.

Very few people in the world are lucky enough to say they’ve been to Mombo. You’ll spend three nights in one of just eight spacious suites, with sweeping views over the iconic, wildlife-strewn floodplains of Chief’s Island. This is the Okavango – and five-star hospitality – at its absolute finest. And it’s where the land-based side of the delta really shines. You’ll spot everything, from the Big Five to wild dogs, cheetah and hyena – and huge herds of ungulates that keep everyone fed. It’s utterly priceless. But there’s a caveat: no safari after this will ever compare.
