What makes this tour different than the shorter tour is the time spend within Botswana. We visit the “Three Sisters” as they where painted by Thomas
Baines, nearly 130 years ago. We walk with the Bushmen and test our 4x4 skills in all types of terrain.
A must for the nature lover and a plus for the adventurer.
