TOUR HIGHLIGHTS
Etosha National Park – The Etosha National Park features several waterholes that provide some of the best game viewing opportunities during the dry season, when the surrounding lands are dry and arid. On your Northern Skies safari, you’ll be able to sit at the edge of these waterholes and view the variety of wildlife that visit the waterhole throughout the day. Game viewing like this is truly incomparable and the opportunity for such makes a visit to the Etosha National Park a must.

Himba Experience – Experience the culture and life of this traditional Namibian tribe.

Okavango Delta – When you take your Botswana safari through the Okavango Delta, you will have the opportunity to explore the natural environment that supports large herds of Elephant, Antelope and Buffalo, as well as Hippopotamus, Giraffe, Crocodile, Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Wildebeest, Rhinoceros, Zebra, Baboon and countless others.

Chobe National Park –  Chobe National Park is well known for the beautiful Savuti region, a definite highlight on our safari in Botswana.  On your Northern Skies safari, you will experience one of many natural phenomena, such as witnessing one of the largest elephant herds in the world, or possibly the annual zebra migration.

Victoria Falls – Victoria Falls has been called “the greatest known curtain of falling water” and it is a truly spectacular site to see. Victoria Falls borders on Zambia and Zimbabwe, and can be viewed from vast distances from both sides. Columns of spray can be felt from miles away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge.
