icon Day 1: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe - Chobe NP, Botswana

Location: Chobe NP

Transfer to Botswana & Game Drive (L/D)
Depart Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe this morning and take a transfer to the nearby Botswana border where you will meet up with your professional safari guide and continue to Kasane, a short drive away. Upon arrival to Kasane, we will get settled in and make our final preparations for our afternoon game drive in Chobe National Park. Embark on your first African safari of the trip with you camera ready to go and set off in search of different antelope and bird species, giraffe, elephants, hyenas, leopards and if you’re lucky, lions! The Chobe National Park is perhaps one of the most important ecosystems in the country of Botswana where animals gather around the floodplains and Chobe River during the dry season, creating an impressive show of anywhere from 500 to nearly 5000 elephants. Search along the banks of the Chobe River for crocodiles, hippos, wildebeest, buffalo and hundreds of bird species, a photographer’s dream! Enjoy the evening reminiscing about your exciting experience in Chobe with you new friends.

icon Day 2: Chobe NP - Savuti Areas, Botswana

Location: Savuti Areas

Chobe National Park Game Drives (B/L/D)
Today we will head into the Savuti Marsh area which is accessible only by 4x4 vehicles due to the wetland nature of the area. This Savuti area was once a large inland lake and is still connected with the Savuti Channel. It attracts several different types of animals such as elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra and antelope along with predatory cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas, leopards and lions all of which thrive in the Savuti savannah. Embark on a genuine safari into the wild savannah with breathtaking views of the landscape and animals in the area. Camp overnight in the wild and immerse yourself deep in the heart of Mother Nature.

icon Day 3: Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Location: Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi Game Reserve Safaris (B/L/D)
The nearby Moremi Game Reserve is a less frequently visited park than Chobe, but offers excellent game viewing opportunities nonetheless. Moremi offers Acacia forests and Mopane woodlands, stunning lagoons and superb floodplains that play home to a diverse variety of animals such as lion, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, elephant, leopards and wild dogs. At nighttime there is a good chance you might spot a honey badger or spotted hyena.

icon Day 4: Moremi - Maun, Botswana

Location: Maun

Game Drive & Transfer to Maun (B/L/D)
Head out early this morning for one last game drive in Moremi Game Reserve and then continue your adventure en route to the Okavango Delta travelling through the rural African countryside towards Maun. Observe rural life as you pass cattle ranches and farms along the way. Arrive to Maun, Botswana’s tourism capital on the edge of the Okavango Delta and make last minute preparations for your big adventure ahead.

icon Day 5: Maun, Botswana

Location: Maun

Visit the Okavango Delta (B/L/D)
Prepare for an exciting day today in the one-of-a-kind Okavango Delta, a natural inland delta formed by rivers that flow from Angola into northern Botswana, creating a wetland that covers over 1.6 million hectares of land as they spread out over the flat plains. This intricately formed floodplain is a myriad of islands, lagoons and river channels, unique on the African continent. Take a ride in a Mokoro (dug-out man-made canoe) as you float through the maze of channels in search of wildlife like elephants, buffalo, crocodiles, hippos and bird species. You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable “poler” who will help spot animals and tell you about the complex ecosystem of this beautiful area. Today we should arrive back to Maun around 2:00pm with plenty of time for those who wish to take an optional scenic overflight or helicopter ride over the delta. Enjoy dinner tonight and a relaxing evening with your group.

icon Day 6: Maun - Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

Location: Makgadikgadi Pans

Transfer to the Makgadikgadi Pans (B/L/D)
Today we will travel to the famous Makgadikgadi Pans making a stop along the way in the quaint Gweta village and then reaching the Chapman’s Baobabs. These trees have a circumference of more than 25 metres and look out silently over the shimmering Makgadikgadi Pans in the distance, bordering the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Camp overnight on the pans and if you wish, sleeping outside with a sleeping bag gazing up at the stars, for a true African experience.

icon Day 7: Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana - Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Location: Victoria Falls

Return to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe (B/L)
Depart early this morning from the Makgadikgadi Pans en route to Kasane, admiring the beauty of the vast savannah and rural villages with smiling, friendly locals along the way. Upon arrival to the Zimbabwe border, we will say our goodbyes to our guide and then transfer to a new vehicle for the final leg of our journey to reach Victoria Falls. Here your trip will come to an end and we wish you a safe and happy journey for your onward travels!
