Day 1/2: Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls – Botswana - Kasane.
On arrival your guide will brief you on the next few days. Today we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls and experience the thundering sound of the mighty Zambezi before crossing the Botswana border to Kasane. In the afternoon we enjoy an included sunset cruise on the Chobe River in order to see the animals (in the Chobe National Park). As we depart Victoria Falls today it is best to arrive 1-2 days beforehand if you wish to partake in any of the adventure activities such as the world-famous White Water Rafting. Optional Activities: Chobe Game Drive. Meals: Breakfast day 2 only, Lunch x 2, Dinner x 2. Overnight: Thebe River Safari’s Lodge -www.theberiversafaris.com
Day 3: Maun.
We drive through to Maun. Once we get there we prepare for our 2-day expedition into the Okavango. The rivers leading to the Okavango Delta have no passage to the ocean and irrigate instead some 15,000 square km’s of Kalahari Desert – forming the world’s largest inland Delta.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Overnight: Island Safari - www.africansecrets.net
Day: 4-5 Okavango Delta.
In the morning we board our planes and head into the Delta. After a wonderful scenic flight we arrive at our base for the next two days. During your time in the Delta we enjoy the best nature has to offer. We go on nature walks and explore the Delta by mokoro traditional canoe (water level dependant). The Delta is truly spectacular and an unforgettable experience as the wild animals here are not used to people. Simply sitting and relaxing often results in rewarding bird or game viewing. Optional activities: If you wish to participate in additional Mokoro rides or nature walks, apart from what is included in the activity package, please speak to your guide. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Overnight: Moremi Crossing - www.moremicrossing.com
Day 6: Gweta.
We leave the Delta behind us and travel east. This afternoon we drive to Planet Baobab where our accommodation for the night is unique, and a little quirky. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Overnight: Planet Baobab - www.unchartedafrica.com/page.php?p_id=59
Day 7: Khama Rhino Sanctuary - Palapye.
We leave Gweta behind us and drive towards Palapye, located on the banks of the tranquil Lotsane River. We visit the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, a community based wildlife project, where we experience a game drive to view the protected Rhinos. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Overnight: Khama Rhino Sanctuary - www.khamarhinosanctuary.com
Day 8: South Africa - Johannesburg.
Today we cross the border into South Africa and after quite a long, yet scenic drive we will arrive in Johannesburg. South Africa’s city of gold has much to offer and should not be underestimated as a travel destination. Optional Activity: Dinner Out. Meals: Breakfast.
