Today you will have at leisure to explore Victoria Falls, the town and all of its unique offerings, from adventure activities to cultural experiences. Your guide will take you on a tour of the mighty Victoria Falls, known by the local Kololo tribe as Mosi oa Tunya- “the Smoke that thunders”. In the afternoon we embark on a relaxing sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River, basking in the afterglow of the day

Meals included: Breakfast

DAY 3: VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE TO CAPRIVI, NAMIBIA

After breakfast we head across the Kazungula border into Namibia, driving through the Caprivi Strip (Zambezi Region) to our camp situated on the banks of the Kwando River.  The area is lush and water-rich compared to the rest of Namibia, drawing abundant wildlife and villagers sustained by the large rivers and wetlands. We will arrive at our lodge in the late afternoon to enjoy sunset overlooking the river with a chance of seeing both crocodiles and hippos

Meals included: Breakfast

DAY 4-5: CAPRIVI, NAMIBIA TO OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA

This morning we start early as we embark on a game drive in the Greater Bwabwata National Park, which extends from the Kavango River in the west to the Kwando River in the east and incorporates the Mahangu Game Reserve. Elephant, roan, kudu and buffalo are amongst the animals likely to be seen as well as prolific birdlife.

We cross over the border into Botswana and head to Etsha 13, on the western border of the Okavango Delta. Unlike other deltas, it flows into the Kalahari Desert without reaching the coast, which makes it unique.  The next day is spent exploring the network of water pathways through thick vegetation in mokoros (traditional dugout canoes), discovering a variety of birds and wildlife. We have the opportunity to stop at a secluded island to take a 1½ hour guided walk hoping to spot elephants, waterbuck or other animals living in this water filled paradise.

Meals included Day 4: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Meals included Day 5: Breakfast & Lunch

DAY 6: GREATER MOREMI AREA, BOTSWANA

After breakfast we head south travelling via Maun to our camp which is situated in a private concession in the Greater Moremi area. This large area is renowned for its concentration of mammals and it is not unusual to see many different types of wildlife during just one game drive. Game viewing is seasonal; depending on the time of the year you may see different species in different areas. The best time for game viewing is the end of the dry season or spring from August to November. During this season, in order for us to offer the best game viewing possible, extra driving may be required due to the animals migrating closer to the river. In the summer, birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

DAY 7: GREATER MOREMI, BOTSWANA

We have the opportunity to spend the day on game drives. In our open 4x4 vehicle we will explore the Greater Moremi area on morning and afternoon game drives hopefully spotting a variety of game that frequent this region. After dinner your guide will take you on a night drive, and you will hopefully be able to spot some rare nocturnal animals

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

DAY 8: MOREMI GAME RESERVE, BOTSWANA

Today we head into the famous Moremi Game Reserve known as one of the most beautiful and varied reserves in Africa with an unprecedented concentration of wildlife. The full day is spent in the unspoiled nature of the Moremi Game Reserve

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

DAY 9: MOREMI GAME RESERVE TO NATA, BOTSWANA

Leaving the bush behind us, we travel east towards the Makgadikgadi Pans, once a large river fed lake which has become saline and empty. This area incorporates a multitude of salt pans and vast grass plains dotted by palm islands and forms the Great Makgadikgadi which comprises the largest area of salt pans in the world, covering some 37,000 square km overall. We arrive at our lodge in the late afternoon

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

DAY 10-11: NATA TO CHOBE, BOTSWANA

We head off to Nata Bird Sanctuary in the morning, which offers us the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent view over the Sowa pan, which is part of the Greater Makgadikgadi Pans (please note a visit to the pans is subject to the road conditions and water levels as well as time constraints). After breakfast, we continue our journey north to Kasane, the gateway to the Chobe National Park. Chobe, which is the second largest national park in Botswana and covers 10,566 square km, has one of the greatest concentrations of elephant found on the African continent.

 

The afternoon is at leisure to partake in optional activities or to relax by the pool.

Start your morning of day 11 with a hopefully spectacular game drive in Chobe National Park. You will return to the lodge for a late breakfast and relaxation until our boat cruise on the Chobe River starts around 3pm. Here we can watch elephants, hippos, crocodiles and a variety of birds, making for excellent up close photo opportunities.

DAY 12-14: CHOBE, BOTSWANA TO HWANGE, ZIMBABWE

Today we make our way across the border into Zimbabwe and onto our lodge located in a private concession near to Hwange National Park, where we will spend the next three nights in this wildlife rich area. This afternoon you can partake in an optional game drive if time allows. Over the following two days, we will have plenty of time to explore this vast wilderness on game drives. Hwange National Park is one of Africa's finest havens for wildlife and is home to massive herds of elephant, buffalo, and zebra and has a very large concentration of giraffe. It is also home to many predators and endangered species plus varied birdlife.
