Our Hotel Picks:

Camp Okuti consists of just a handful of luxurious guest mosasa (reed houses), all of which are raised up on teak platforms and have private decks with lovely river views. The main camp also boasts a comfortable lounge area and small pool. Situated in one of Botswana’s prime game-viewing areas, guests are often treated to animal and bird sightings in the area around the camp.

Muchenje Safari Lodge sits within Chobe Forest Reserve on the quieter western side of Botswana’s Chobe National Park. With wonderful views of the Chobe River, the Caprivi Strip and seasonal flood plains, it’s position means that it is far away from the bustle of Kasane yet just two hours from the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Footsteps accommodations are in three spacious Meru-style tents with comfortable twin beds. All tents are furnished with en-suite facilities, hot water filled bucket showers and porcelain flush toilet.​

Number of nights: 9
