Botswana + Zambia Luxury Safari

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Our Botswana and Zambia luxury safari is an ideal choice for families wishing for a high-end wildlife safari experience, coupled with a stopover at Zambia’s iconic Victoria Falls! Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Okavango Delta serves a protected wildlife area and oasis attracting a multitude of species, both permanent and migrational inhabitants to the region. With a meticulously constructed conservation program, the Okavango Delta is perhaps the best region in Africa to see the likes of African bush elephants, black and white Rhinos, the spotted hyenas, and the African wild dog to name a few!

Best Travel Time: Spring Summer

Hotels

With 182 rooms and suites, Peermont is slightly larger than we prefer, however the size of this hotel does not mean any less than 5-Star, high-touch service. Featuring the elegant Aurelia restaurant and an unparalleled spa, Peermont is as luxurious as it gets in South Africa. Watching the African sunset from Neptune’s Pool Bar is not to be missed. Additional amenities include an art gallery, a cocktail bar and lounge, a swimming pool with bar, a 24-hr gym, a business center, and free wifi.

Chief’s camp is yet another example of the many luxury safari camps to choose from in the predator-rich Okavango Delta. Set in the Moremi Game Reserve, Chief’s Camp is made up of 10 luxury bush pavilions and one suite, all with private decks with plunge pools, as well as indoor and outdoor showers (using the outdoor showers in this remote, pristine environment is truly exhilarating!) We particularly like the pavilion’s polished teakwood floors, insect-proof netted windows and colorful batik fabrics. Other amenities include a new spa treatment room, a small pool, and picturesque dining area/observation deck. Based on the Chief’s location overlooking a large lagoon on the northwest tip of Chief’s Island, many mokoro (canoe/boat) game excursions are a continuing fun activity (!)

Laundry service available and WiFi available in all rooms. Emergency medical evacuation is available. Notwithstanding the Chief’s extensive renovation and reopening June 1st, one thing has not changed Chief’s extraordinary location and game-rich Moremi Island. The game-viewing here includes all of the “Big 5” (African lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, leopards and rhino) hence, our choice as a prime family safari site. Chief’s renovation includes 10 luxury bush pavilions, all with private terrace plunge pools, 462 sq. ft. In addition to the 10 pavilions, a new feature is the 2,035 sq. ft. Geoffrey Kent Suite, sleeping 6. A family just returned from Chief’s and was especially fond of the camp’s new pizza oven (!) as part of the dining room extension.

This camp is named after Dr. Livingstone’s loyal servants who carried his body to the British authorities in eastern Tanzania following his death. Though we also like the 5-Star Royal Chundu further down the river, we feel Sussi & Chuma offers a more authentic Africa river/safari experience versus the more “Western”-style Royal Chundu. Comprised of 12 thatched treehouse luxury villas, the lodge is nestled on a 90° bend along the historic Zambezi River, 8 miles upstream from Victoria Falls. All the villa treehouses are designed in an open-style plan, including air conditioning, very nice soaking baths/glass-enclosed walk-in showers, and colorful local tribal artwork. Though small, the Sussi’s river-edge pool offers a wonderful Zambezi picture(!) In addition to amazing food and personal service, the list of interesting/fun activities is impressive: walking safaris, regular vehicle game drives, canoeing, private catch-and-release fishing on the Zambezi (March 1 – December 1), and, of course, Victoria Falls! We feel the “Flight of Angels” helicopter ride over the Falls is a truly unique experience. Sussi & Chuma’s special location on the Zambezi makes it a perfect safari/geographic contrast to the semi-arid landscape/game of the Okavango Delta.
