Starting in Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta, your first night is spent north of town on the banks of the Thamalakane River with the afternoon at leisure – or perhaps take part in a scenic flight over the Delta to give you a bird’s–eye of this magical waterway
After breakfast take a short drive to the mokoro stations. No trip to the Delta is complete without a mokoro excursion and from here we will float quietly in dug–out canoes through the thick vegetation of the Okavango Delta discovering a variety of birds and wildlife. Unlike other deltas, it flows into the Kalahari Desert without ever reaching the coast. After this spectacular excursion, we make our way to our camp and later enjoy a night drive searching for nocturnal game not normally spotted during daylight hours
Today we take part in morning and afternoon game drives aboard open 4x4 vehicle to explore the Greater Khwai area hopefully spotting a variety of game that frequent this region. This area is renowned for its large concentrations of mammals and its exceptional location makes it a regular host to elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard, cheetah and wild dogs. Birdlife is also abundant with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors. The following day our attention turns to Moremi Game Reserve known as one of the most beautiful and varied reserves in Africa with an unprecedented concentration of wildlife thanks to its many ecosystems
We transit through the national parks of Moremi, Savuti and Chobe to Kasane, the gateway to Chobe National Park. Keep an eye out for the wildlife as we journey to our destination as plenty of animals can be spotted. Our lodge is situated on the bank of the Chobe River a short distance from its confluence with the mighty Zambezi River at Kazungula. The following day join an exciting game drive in the Chobe National Park, which along with many species of big game, boasts the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. This afternoon, hop aboard a boat to join a river cruise where we can watch elephants, hippos, crocodiles and a variety of birds without having to reach for our binoculars –we’ll be near enough for close–up photographs, as well as having the chance to witness spectacular African sunset.
Today the journey takes us into Zimbabwe, home to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the mighty Victoria Falls. Have the opportunity to view the falls on a guided tour through the Victoria Falls National Park with its own unique rainforest eco system. There is plenty of time to join optional activities from adrenaline–fuelled pursuits to more sedate choices, and marvelling at some of the world’s greatest waterfalls
Your journey ends today and you will be transferred to Victoria Falls Airport in time for your departing flightedit me
