This magnificent safari contrasts the sporadic rains of the Kalahari Desert with the always-fertile islands and waterways of the Okavango Delta
. It takes place during the Kalahari's most productive season, when it receives low rains and wildlife migrates in large numbers into the desert valleys. This precious water creates a short yet incredibly prolific wildlife-viewing period with concentrations of desert species and their young in the ancient river valleys of Deception Valley. An all-day game drive (or two) in the reserve adds immeasurably to the sightings of this abundance. Then, in a stunning contrast, the vibrant water wonderland of Xigera in the Okavango Delta is explored.
