What to Expect
Inspired by our most popular Insider Journeys itineraries, Indagare Departures combine the best of Indagare’s destination expertise and special access—while allowing for flexibility and customization—to offer you an effortless and rewarding way to explore the world. Every Indagare Departure is curated to offer maximum immersion in our destinations, allowing you to discover once-in-a-lifetime experiences with likeminded travelers. Itinerary highlights include:
- Experience authentic interactions with the dreamy landscapes and abundant wildlife of Botswana, one of Africa’s biggest safari success stories. The country’s low-volume approach to tourism has resulted in a real sense of remoteness as you follow big game like lions, leopards, giraffes, buffalo, elephants and more in open-air vehicles and mokoro boats through bush, delta, plain and lagoon.
- Relax at two beautiful eco-luxury tented camps—Chitabe Camp and Abu Camp—that offer a variety of immersive wilderness and cultural activities—including walking safaris, village visits, helicopter tours, birding and fishing—as well as pampering amenities.
- Interact with Abu Camp’s herd of habituated elephants—a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—and learn about the camp’s efforts to protect Botswana’s unique elephant population.
- Enjoy the company of conservation specialists who will lead you through the marshes and grasslands of the Okavango Delta to learn about initiatives like the Botswana Wild Dog Project.
