Day 1
Victoria Falls

Saturday. Welcome to Victoria Falls! We’ll be there to collect you at Victoria Falls Airport. Your first night will be spent at a permanent tented camp In Victoris Falls. There will be a pre departure meeting at 17:00.
Overnight: Victoria Falls

Day 2

Today is spent relaxing or participating in a myriad of optional excursions. At 1700 metres wide and around 100 metres high, Victoria Falls are one of the most memorable sights on this African safari. The falls can be seen from many viewing points within Victoria Falls National Park, all offer fantastic photographic opportunities. Optional Excursions include elephant back safaris, horseback safaris, walking with lions, a visit to the crocodile ranch, boat cruises and golf at The Elephant Hills Resort. Adrenalin junkies can bungee from the Victoria Falls Bridge connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia or abseil down the Batoka Gorge - neither activity is for the faint hearted! All year round, flights in fixed wing, micro light and ultra light aircraft or helicopters provide an aerial perspective over this magnificent World Heritage Site. White water rafting on the Zambezi is world class. Beside the excitement of the Grade 5 rapids, there are the "floats," where there is time to admire the scenic cliffs and the occasional wildlife on the riverbanks.
Overnight: Victoria Falls

Day 3

Victoria Falls - Chobe. After breakfast we cross the border into Botswana and head to Kasane where we have a chance to explore the town of Kasane. After lunch, once we are packed and prepared, we leave for our Chobe National Park overnight mobile excursion – an overnight experience in the wilds of the Chobe National park. Chobe is 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. Look out for the rare Sable and Roan Antelope on your game drive, with their majestic backward slanting horns, or try keep a count of the Lilac Breasted Roller’s that swoop by!
Overnight: Chobe N. P.  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4
Chobe River Cruise

Chobe - Kasane. 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. Once we're back at camp, we have some free time to relax and after lunch; we head off on a boat cruise along the Chobe River. The Chobe River forms a natural border between Botswana, Namibia and Zambia and is the main water source to the Chobe National Park. Elephant, hippo and many bird species can be viewed from the boat while we watch a glorious African sunset. (Please note, from Jan 2014 onwards, the Chobe River Cruise will be an optional excursion, payable locally).
Overnight: Kasane  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

Kasane - Maun. Heading out early, we cross the western end of the Chobe National Park to the southern reaches of the Okavango Delta and our destination, Maun. Maun is the starting point for our Okavango Delta excursion.
Overnight: Maun  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Days 6-7

Maun - Okavango Delta. The Delta is a huge expanse of water, which has travelled from the Angolan highlands, spreading out to form the largest inland delta in the world. Studded with exotic islands, The Delta is renowned for its incredible variety of bird life and animals and is unique to Southern Africa.

Here we take part in the 3 Day / 2 Night drive-in Mokoro 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, our guides find us a place to camp, and later in the afternoon we set off on an afternoon game walk, allowing us to experience The Delta wilderness. A day of rest, relaxation and Delta experiences awaits on day 7. Today we have the opportunity to partake in a number of activities including swimming, game walks, mokoro cruises and even a chance to try our hands at poling our own mokoro! There is also ample time to relax and rest during the hotter hours of the day, so challenge your new friends to a game of cards, or chat with your guides about their culture and lifestyle, or simply lie back and enjoy the sounds of the surrounding wilderness.
Overnight: Okavango Delta  |  Breakfast x 2, Lunch x 2, Dinner x 2

Day 8

Okavango Delta - Maun. This morning gives 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 in the afternoon 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).
Overnight: Maun  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
