Accommodation

Each of the three Orient-Express safari camps has its own distinct characteristics and activities, and gives the visitor a totally different experience. There's no better way to get a full picture of Botswana in a limited amount of time - especially as you travel between them quickly and easily by small plane.

Eagle Island Camp in the Okavango Delta is a web of calm waterways. It is wonderful to explore by mokoro canoe, speedboat and helicopter, but is also the only place in the region where you can do walking safaris, too. Nowhere else has such a variety of animal and bird species.

You can also explore on foot at Khwai River Lodge, but what makes this special is its proximity to Khwai Village where you may meet the local people and have the chance to see ladies making traditional baskets. The people of Botswana are very friendly and willing to share their knowledge with guests.

You expect to see elephants at Savute Elephant Camp, but guests are still amazed when they see a dust cloud appear on the horizon that eventually turns into a thundering herd. The range of animals and birds here is outstanding, especially now that the Savute Channel has started flowing again after being dry for nearly 30 years. You can also see rare rock paintings drawn by San Bushmen, watch the sun set behind giant baobab trees - and move on to Victoria Falls close by.
