GLENDALE, Calif. – Adventurers can enjoy the best of both
worlds on veteran African travel operator Great Safaris’ latest
deal. For a limited time, Great Safaris guests can experience a
truly wild 8-day safari in Botswana and soak up the cosmopolitan
luxuries of South Africa’s Cape Town at a 30 percent discount.
Botswana is known as "Old Africa's Last Refuge,” a
never-never land where the beasts roam free as they have done
for millennia. The landlocked nation is blessedly underdeveloped
due to the severe Kalahari Desert that blankets half the country
under wind-blown sands. With a small human population (including
some of the last remaining Bushmen), Botswana is truly a 'wild'
Travelers will spend five days on safari at three
ecologically diverse camps in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, home to
a full range of Africa’s famous wildlife. Bush planes will fly
travelers between each Orient
Express camp, flying low enough for prime aerial game
viewing. On the ground, walking safaris, boat safaris and
driving safaris will give plenty of opportunities for game
viewing and photography. Travelers can expect to see herds of
buffalo, elephants, zebra, lions, cheetah, leopards, crocodiles,
hippos, and birdlife. Whether travelers are a first-timer or a
seasoned safari aficionado, Botswana’s spectacular wildlife
legacy never fails to set the heart pumping and the cameras
After wrapping up the Botswana safari, guests will continue
on to Cape Town for two nights at the legendary Mount
Nelson Hotel where guests can unwind and enjoy the best
that South Africa has to offer. Conveniently located within the
city’s cultural center, the Mount Nelson is ideally situated for
guests to roam the heart of the city, the waterfront and the
best beaches. Travelers can get started with a guided city tour
and then spend the rest of their time exploring Cape Town’s
attractions, dining and exquisite natural beauty.
This Wild Botswana offer is valid for travel from Oct. 1 –
15, 2013 and costs only $4,580 per person including all game
activities, most meals, bush flights between camps and airport
transfers. Limited space is available at this price.
