Botswana – African Wonders and Mauritius Adventure

Experience the allure of both Botswana and Mauritius in one captivating journey. Encounter untamed wildlife against the stunning backdrop of the Okavango Delta before transitioning to Mauritius, where pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters await your relaxation. This remarkable voyage seamlessly combines adventure and rejuvenation, showcasing the diverse beauty of these two enchanting destinations.

Welcome to the beginning of your dream journey through Southern Africa and Mauritius. Today, your adventure takes flight as you board Lufthansa in Premium Economy Class, departing from Frankfurt en route to Johannesburg (with an overnight stop). From there, your exploration continues with Airlink in Economy Class, guiding you to Maun. Upon arrival at Maun Airport, you’ll be greeted with warmth by our partner agency. The journey continues with a picturesque flight transfer in a small plane, soaring towards Gham Dhao Lodge nestled in the captivating Kalahari region. Your adventure unfolds as you step into the heart of Africa’s wilderness.

KALAHARI REGION

In the Kalahari region, a realm of untouched Africa awaits, offering a unique and captivating experience. As you step onto the earth, the orange-red sand beneath your feet tells stories of ancient landscapes. Above, the sky stretches out in vibrant blue expanse. Yet, the Kalahari defies the conventional desert imagery. It reveals a different facet—a dry savannah where grasses, thorn bushes, and acacia trees thrive. In this ecosystem, nature’s rhythm is palpable. The rainy season ushers in a mesmerizing transformation—the Mokgadikgadi salt pans, typically arid, become mirrored pools, drawing an array of birds and animals to its life-giving waters. Witness this spectacle first hand during a safari, and be captivated by the lush flora and the diverse fauna that grace this distinctive wilderness.
