Tour Itinerary

Day 1:  Ghanzi – Botswana

Our tour begins in Windhoek as we travel east and cross the border into Botswana. After we set up camp at Ghanzi , we have an opportunity to interact with the local Bushman tribe. In the evening we enjoy some traditional dancing around the camp fire.

Meals:  Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Included activity:  Bushman tribal dancing

Optional activity:  Bushman walk

Day 2:  Okavango Delta

Today we make our way to the Okavango Delta. On route we pass many local villages. We set up base camp on the shores of the delta. The Okavango Delta is Botswana’s most popular destination.  It is the world’s largest inland delta and home to a large range and abundance of wildlife and birdlife.

Meals:  Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 3 & 4:  Okavango Delta

After a relaxed start to the day, we transfer to our wild camp deep in Okavango Delta. Our transfer takes place on both boats and vehicles.  After setting up camp we head off on our first “makoro” trip (traditional canoes).  The next couple of days are spent exploring this true wilderness area. We will spend time with locals poling through the waterways and channels of the delta, take nature walks and get to take in this unique ecosystem. Evenings are spent around the campfire enjoying the sounds of the African bush.  Note: activities may vary according to water levels.

Meals:  2 x breakfast, 2 x lunch and 2 x dinner

Activity package:  Okavango Delta 

Day 5:  Caprivi Region

After transferring back to base camp we head north and cross the border back into Namibia. We cross the Caprivi Strip en route to our camp on the border of the Chobe National Park. Crossing the Caprivi area, one may encounter elephants and other wildlife.

Meals:  Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 6:  Chobe National Park

Once we have crossed back in Botswana, we establish camp in Kasane, a real frontier safari town. On arrival we set off on an open vehicle game drive. Chobe is best known for its huge herds of elephants and a high concentration of predators – notably lions. In the late afternoon we experience a safari boat cruise along the Chobe River. Hippos and crocodiles abound. One can also expect to see a variety of animals on the banks of the river, including elephant, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and antelope. Have your cameras ready.

Meals:  Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Activity package:  Chobe National Park game drive and a safari boat cruise

Day 7:  Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe

This morning we head for our final destination – Victoria Falls. Note that the Chobe game drive could take place in the morning, dependent on time constraints. It is a short drive to the Zimbabwe border and then onto the mighty Victoria Falls. The falls are one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the expanse of falling water is absolutely spectacular. The spray from the waterfall creates a natural rain forest around the falls. In the afternoon we will visit the falls and take in this breath taking phenomenon.

Meals:  Breakfast and lunch

Activity package:  Victoria Falls National Park Entrance fee
