Go wildlife-spotting along the river at Chobe National Park, home of the world's highest concentration of African elephants

Camping out in the Okavango wilderness means digging a bush toilet and going without a shower. For most travellers this is a small price to pay for such a gorgeous remote island location.
The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth any loss of sleep.
Purpose-built overland trucks allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. This means they don't have air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land.
This is a participatory camping trip, so team spirit is key. You'll be helping out with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning.

It was the best trip of my life. I am not a camper and was a bit concerned about that, but at the end of the day it was a part of the trip's fun and I can't imaging doing this trip any different. This trip is packed with activities - you get to see so manly animals, different scenery, meet locals and do some crazy activities if you feel like! I have had an unforegettable expirience and would do this trip again anytime.
