Itinerary

icon Day 1: Victoria Falls

Saturday. Welcome to Victoria Falls! We’ll be there to collect you at Victoria Falls Airport and transfer you to our campsite. Today there will be a pre departure meeting at 17.00 when you will be your fellow travellers and tour leader.

icon Day 2: Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. 1700 metres wide and around 100 metres high, this is the world’s largest sheet of falling water and a memorable sight of any African Safari, and this morning is ours to explore. The afternoon is spent at leisure enjoying the plethora of activities available from white water rafting, horse back safaris, gorge swings to boat cruises.

icon Day 3-4: Chobe National Park

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Victoria Falls - Chobe - Kasane (Botswana). Leaving Zimbabwe, we cross the border into Botswana and make our way to Kasane, where we have some free time. After lunch we depart for our Chobe National Park Overnight Mobile excursion – an overnight experience in the wilds of the Chobe National Park - one of Botswana’s premier game parks, renowned for its large elephant herds. Spend the afternoon in search of wildlife while we game drive to our camp within the park where we spend the evening surrounded by the night-time noises of the local wildlife. After our night in the bush, we head out early to continue our search for wildlife, before packing up the camp and heading back to Kasane to partake in some optional activities available, perhaps enjoy a cruise on the Chobe River?

icon Day 5: Maun

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Kasane - Maun. Heading out early, we cross the western end of the Chobe National Park area along the main route in a south-westerly direction to the southern reaches of the Okavango Delta and our destination, Maun. Maun is the starting point for travel into the Delta.

icon Day 6-7: Okavango Delta

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Maun - Okavango Delta - Maun. On day 6 we take the included overnight excursion into the Delta. After an early rise, we pack our expedition vehicle and from Maun we drive north for a couple of hours to reach the mokoro poler’s station. The Delta region is studded with many local villages where many families live in a traditional way. Some of the villages are very remote and can only be reached by the traditional mode of transport – the Mokoro. Mokoros are dugout canoes manoeuvred through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. At the Mokoro station, we meet our ‘Polers’ and pack our supplies before heading out into the waterways. After a couple of hours along the waterways, we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango.

On arrival you will meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay. A brief introduction to the camp will show you your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Relax in the tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the Delta in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

The following morning affords us a final opportunity for a game walk before packing up and setting off back to Maun. After our Mokoro ride and vehicle transfer, we arrive back around lunch time and have the chance to complete our picture of the Okavango Delta by taking an optional scenic flight over The Delta (dependent on weather conditions & availability).

icon Day 8-9: Ghanzi & Windhoek

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Maun - Ghanzi - Windhoek (Namibia). Day 8 will be our last day in Botswana will be spent in the small village of Ghanzi, home to the San/Bushman. Here we have the opportunity to learn about more about their way of life in an optional Bushman Experience, offered at the campsite.

We spend the following day driving through small rural towns and soaking up scenic landscapes until we reach Windhoek, Namibia’s capital nestled between the hills. This rather small capital city has many places of historical interest for us to explore this afternoon as we enjoy some free time. Why not visit a local museum or haggle with vendors at the side street markets.

icon Day 10: Windhoek

Meals: Breakfast

This morning we exchange addresses and part ways, having just experienced a trip of a lifetime!

They were first rate.

I have lived and worked in East Africa, mainly Kenya, for many years.

During this time I have traveled extensively with friends and independently.

I didn’t know what to expect from the overland experience.

I loved it and can’t wait to continue to explore - hopefully next time through Namibia.

Thank you again to your amazing staff on the ground.

The camping places were really nice, we could have a shower almost every day and the sites were big.

The food was delicious, our chef, Jared, did an excellent job preparing us amazing dinners.

Our guides, Linda and Nick were super friendly, and they were always there to help us when needed, and to make sure that everything was going smoothly.

You could tell that they really enjoy their job.

I am looking forward doing another tour as soon as I can!; ....less

I would have preferred a group introduction on day 1.

We were given the introductory talk, and then advised we would be meeting up 2 days later.

We truly enjoyed our time on tour, and would definitely do it again.
