Itinerary Details

Upon arrival into Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Victoria Falls Hotel by road where you will stay for two nights.

Established in 1904, the Victoria Falls Hotel is set in the Victoria Falls National Park with a private path to the Victoria Falls. Overlooking the Victoria Falls Bridge and gorge, it is one of the most famous hotels in Africa and is renowned for its elegance and charm.

Victoria Falls is an exciting hive of activity. After a day spent exploring the beautiful waterfalls area – one of seven natural wonders of the world – it's time for some action. A scenic flight over the falls is amazing and the sunset river cruises are a must; walking safaris with lions and elephants are popular highlights and there are many adventure activities available for the young-at-heart including excellent white water rafting and canoeing safaris.

Spend two days exploring Victoria Falls and either cramming in the activities or relaxing in your safari lodge with a beautiful view, a cool drink and the wonderful African weather.

Following breakfast and leisurely morning, you will be transferred by road to Chobe Game Lodge in the Chobe National Park, where you will stay for two nights.

Chobe Game Lodge is the only permanent lodge situated within the boundaries of Chobe National Park. Built along the riverbanks with spectacular views of the Chobe River and floodplains, this well-established lodge is a prime venue for guests to explore the Chobe National Park

The Chobe River attracts earth's greatest concentration of elephant. Knee-deep in the gentle river's flooded plains, elephants nibble in their numbers on the juicy jackalberry and mangosteen trees that tower above the ground with huge dense canopies.

The schedule of activities is flexible and varied with optional motor boat safaris, canoeing safaris, guided walks, fishing, sunset river cruises and game drives into Chobe National Park on offer at a time and frequency that suits you.

After an early morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred to Camp Moremi by light aircraft where you will stay for two nights.

Which ever way you approach it, the Okavango Delta opens up slowly to reveal its vast, watery wilderness. The land changes from harsh acacia woodlands to lush islands with broad-leafed and riparian woodlands, towering palms and thickets of impenetrable bush. Your first Okavango Delta safari stop is in the Moremi Game Reserve with a combination of land- and water-based safari activities. Morning and afternoon game drives on the floodplains are punctuated by delta-boat safaris through the channels and waterways of the Okavango.

Camp Moremi is situated on the edge of lagoon in the delta; your tented room has a private balcony overlooking the action and the main lodge has a large game viewing deck and a comfortable lounge and living area.

Wildlife in the Moremi Game Reserve is prolific including lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and plenty of antelope including the rare red lechwe. Birding is superb with hundreds of species on record, plenty of specials and some renowned birding spots.

Following the morning activity, you will be transferred to Leroo La Tau by a light aircraft where you will stay for two nights.

Leroo La Tau rises majestically above the Boteti River which stretches across the western border of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The Makgadikgadi offers a completely different experience to the Okavango. Here, vast pans shimmer into the distance that, in the rainy summer, fill up with water attracting thousands of flamingos, pelicans and migratory waders and woodland birds. The summer rains also attract the second largest mammal migration in Africa as thousands of zebra, wildebeest and other antelope escape the predators up north for some succulent grass down south. The winter dry season offers good general game viewing and fascinating exploration expeditions to the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans.

Following the morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast you will be transferred to Maun by light aircraft for your onward travel arrangements.
