The Okavango Delta and the Linyanti, November 9-19, 2012

In May 2011, nine travelers who had been on previous Princeton Journeys headed on a scouting mission to Botswana with Executive Manager Leslie Rowley to survey the landscape, camps, and opportunities for people-to-people interaction with the aim of providing feedback for future programs. The result: A 2012 Journey destined to delight other Princeton travelers. Join your fellow Princetonians November 9-19, 2012, for a trip that Russell Carpenter '63 noted provides "exceptional opportunities for close-up observation of wide varieties of game and birds in varied settings, with the assistance of highly knowledgeable guides." Add Princeton contacts and travel companions to the mix and it’s a winning combination.

After spending one night in Johannesburg and visiting a Princeton in Africa field site, travel to the Okavango Delta for five nights in luxury tented camps. Experiencing both a land-based camp and a water-based camp, you will gain an appreciation of the vast diversity the region has to offer. Then travel to the Linyanti, known for its elephant population, for a two-night stay. A two-night optional post-trip extension to Livingstone, Zambia, allows for interactions with another Princeton in Africa fellow and a visit to thunderous Victoria Falls.
