This 11 day adventure through Botswana, the heart of Southern Africa, is a showcase of the beauty of this magical place. Botswana is a country where in certain places time seems to have stood still and traditional ways of living are still very much in tact. There is also a strong connection to the earth as many of its people rely on it for subsistence. Botswana has no fences around many of its national parks and nature is allowed to roam freely which further reflects this connection with the earth. This is an adventure to touch the soul and one that will make stories and memories for a lifetime.

This tour is lead by our travel photographer Ché Overmeyer. He is ready to assist you in getting the best shots on your journey.

  1. Aaron Peterson

    I absolutely loved the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, and Victoria Falls! There is nothing quite like them! And the kindness, resourcefulness, and insightfulness of my guide, Che, really made the trip an all-round great experience. I would definitely go with Journey On for my next African adventure.
