It starts off at the Victoria Falls where you get to see the falls from its best angle. Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Animal lovers are not to be left out. The Victoria Falls National Park and Zambezi National Park provide a home for big game. Riverine bird life is also plentiful and the Zambezi is renowned for its variety of fish. From the falls, you head by road to Chobe National Park to meet with the worlds largest herds of elephants that gather at the Chobe River.

Like a diamond among rubies; Chobe is the finest and most rewarding of Botswana’s game sanctuaries. Next stop - Okavango Delta. Described as “the jewel” of the Kalahari, this is without doubt Africa's most beautiful oasis. Here you are assured of having close encounters with abundant animals on your game drives. Finish off at Eagle Island camp, a treasure chest of game and aquatic birds.
Special - a 45 minute helicopter scenic flight included at Eagles Camp! Here, you will enjoy nature walks, mokoro (canoe) trips and experience the sun setting over the delta. A mokoro is a canoe dug out of a tree trunk and pushed by qualified nature guides with a pole through the channels.

The delta consists of a web of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over 17,000 square kilometers.
