DAY 1 TRAVEL DAY – TO AFRICA

Your Botswana safari begins today as you board your international flight to Africa.


DAYS 2 & 3 OKAVANGO DELTA

Welcome to Africa! Your Botswana safari continues as you are met at the Maun International Airport off your flight from Johannesburg. You will take a flight to Nxabega Airstrip where a safari vehicle will be waiting to take you to the campsite. Explore the crystal-clear channels, islands and waterways by mekoro (dug-out canoe), and enjoy game viewing walks on the islands. Spend two nights at a private campsite in a private concession area, bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, with a complement of camp staff to cater for your needs.

The highlight of any Botswana safari is the magnificent Okavango Delta, a maze of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over 16,000 square km in flood and shrinking to less than 9,000 square km in the dry season. Trapped in the parched Kalahari sands, this fresh water oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters. Sable, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, lion, and elephant, drift through the Kalahari woodlands. This Delta is one of the planet’s most extraordinary wild places and Botswana’s most valuable natural resource.


DAYS 4 & 5 MOREMI GAME RESERVE

Today your Botswana safari takes you on a short flight in a light aircraft will take you to khwai in the north gate region of Moremi Wildlife Reserve. The first protected area in Africa to be established by local people, the Reserve is rated as Africa’s most beautiful wildlife sanctuary. Spend two nights camping in the reserve, with extensive and interpretive game-drives taking up your days.


DAYS 6 & 7 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK – SAVUTE

Enjoy a long game drive (5 – 6 hours overland) as you transfer to Savute, renowned for lion and other predator viewing, where you will spend two nights camping next to the Savute Channel. Huge animal concentrations are attracted to this area and its artificial watering holes in the dry season.

Chobe National Park, another highlight of this Botswana safari, encompasses 11,700 km2 of wilderness, bordered in the north by the beautiful Chobe River, and buffered on all sides by wildlife management areas and forest reserves, allowing for the free movement of game. A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, Chobe National Park is one of the top wilderness reserves in the world and is home to the largest single concentration of elephant. Two species of region-specific antelope occur here, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck, which cannot be seen in other parts of Botswana except on the Chobe riverfront.


DAYS 8 & 9 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK – SERONDELA

From Savute, move up to northern Chobe (4 – 5 hours overland game drive) where you will camp for two nights in the Serondela area of the National Park. This is the heart of elephant country and you may spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the waters of the Chobe River on game drives or private boat cruise. Northern Chobe is renowned for its large variety of bird and animal life, beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets.


DAY 10 VICTORIA FALLS

Take a short drive from Chobe National Park to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe for your one night stay at The Elephant Camp, after a tour of the Falls (entrance fee to the Falls is included in the safari fare). Enjoy a sunset cruise along the banks of the Zambezi River and view the spectacular scenery that is nature’s own sanctuary and home to the ‘laughing hippos’, ‘singing birds’ and the ‘snapping crocodiles’. This tranquil cruise offers exceptional photographic opportunities and delightful canapés and sundowners to toast the glorious African sunset. The Elephant Camp also offers close interaction with wildlife – in particular elephant at the Wild Horizons Sanctuary. All guests staying at The Elephant Camp will have an opportunity to meet the Wild Horizons elephants.

Considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls is knows as Mosi-oa-Tunya in Zambia and means the Mist that Thunders. The falls are some of the largest in the world and will leave you awestruck by their power and beauty.


DAY 11 YOUR JOURNEY ENDS
