Are you aching for a serious houseboat adventure? An honestly exotic one? Featured on the Courier Mail’s “Great Holidays To Book This Week” list is the special on the Botswana 10-day package that includes an unforgettable African sunset and cruise by houseboat on the Okavango Delta. This vacation is reduced by $900 to settle the price at $3599 per person—that includes lodging in comfortable tented camps and hotels and a two-night excursion on the houseboat. You also get to go on game-watching drives from open jeeps and boats, seeing wildlife like elephants, lions, giraffes, and birds in their natural habitat. What an unforgettable chance to take some nature shots with your personal camera! This price also includes arrival transfer, all access to the national park and game reserve entrances, all transportation between destinations, 9 breakfasts, 7 lunches, and 6 dinners, as well as the guidance of the Chief Experience Officer and local guides throughout your journey. This excursion is set up with everything you need as well as instruction on how to best take incredible safari photos, so it’s perfect for both beginner and experienced photographers who prefer more guidance or not. Rated comfortable for travel style, upgraded for service level, and low for physical demand, the 10-day package also promises a small group of vacationers for a more personalized experience, with a max of 9 and average of 7 travelers per group.
On days 7 and 8, you will board the houseboat in the world’s largest inland delta to better explore more secluded areas of the Okavango for wildlife viewing. The second day includes early morning and late afternoon excursions and either a cultural trip to check out ancient San Bushman rock paintings or a chance to rest up on deck and simply enjoy the drifting scenery.
The price of $3599 is based on a July 16, 2015 departure, but may of course vary slightly depending on your selected day, so check out your schedule to get the best idea of the cost for you.
