Day 1:  Victoria Falls to Chobe National Park
Our tour begins with an early departure from Victoria Falls. It is a fairly short drive to the border and then on to Kasane - a small wilderness town on the edge of the Chobe National Park. It is not unusual to encounter elephants or buffalo in the streets of Kasane.  The Chobe is well known for its huge herds of elephants and a high concentration of predators. In the late afternoon we enjoy a cruise down the Chobe River. Expect to encounter elephant, hippos, crocodiles and a large variety of antelope. Have your cameras ready. Note it is advised that clients arrive a couple of days before departure to experience the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Day 2:  Chobe National Park to Gweta
Today we travel through rural Botswana to Gweta – the gate way to Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans. Elephant and buffalo are often spotted alongside the roads as the area is largely unfenced allowing the wildlife to roam free.

One can expect to see some of the resident wildlife. The Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s true wilderness areas and many species of animals roam freely and migrate to the water during the dry months.
