Day 1 – Victoria Falls
Today we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls, also known by the local name of “Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders). While much of today is dedicated to viewing the mighty Zambezi River as it drops into the Batoka Gorge below, the bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline in the afternoon. For the more relaxed traveler, there are craft markets to explore and a delicious high tea is on offer at the Victoria Falls Hotel. Tonight we enjoy an optional dinner out, your guide will assist you to decide on the many options available.
Day 2 – Victoria Falls to Kasane
After breakfast we travel the short distance to the Botswana border, crossing into Botswana we set up camp on the banks of the Chobe River. Lunch will be served from the truck and the afternoon is set aside for exploring the Chobe National Park. For those who have purchased the Activity Package, we begin our exploration in 4×4 vehicles, which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many Elephants that frequent the Chobe riverfront in the afternoons. The afternoon ends with a leisurely Boat Cruise and a meal served around the campfire.
Day 3 – Nata
Leaving Kasane early, we set of for Nata where we will overnight. Those who would like to can join an optional excursion to the Pans this afternoon. This evening we will prepare for our journey to Maun, packing smaller bags for our journey into the Okavango Delta.
Day 4 – Okavango Delta
Our journey today takes us across the northern reaches of the Makgadigadi Pans and the road to Maun is lined with majestic examples of the iconic Baobab tree. Upon arrival in Maun, we say farewell to our truck and begin our Delta excursion. The seasonality of the flood waters lends the Delta its ever-changing character and while water levels may fluctuate the tranquillity of this wilderness area remains constant.
Day 5 – Okavango Delta
A full day is set aside to enjoy the activities on offer in the Delta, while the programme of activities is flexible to accommodate the seasonal changes in water levels, you will have the opportunity to enjoy amongst other activities traditional mokoro rides and natures walks. The Okavango Delta is not only a natural wonder but represents one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas in the world today.
Day 6 – Maun
Leaving the Delta behind us this morning we make our way to Maun. This afternoon you may have the opportunity to participate in an optional scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (weather permitting). Your tour comes to an end upon arrival in Maun.
