Itinerary

Day 1

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe – Chobe National Park, Botswana

We journey a brief distance from Victoria Falls to the border of Botswana, over the merging of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. Arriving in the tiny town of Kasane, we arrive at the lodge for the evening and begin preparation for the optional game drive  into Chobe National Park. Armed with sunscreen and cameras, we climb aboard our open 4X4 vehicle and begin our search for lion, leopard, hyena, elephant, giraffe and a variety of antelope and birdlife whilst winding through dusty roads and rough landscapes. Chobe National Park was the first national park to be constructed in Botswana and is the biggest park in the entire country. The Chobe River is one of the most stunning in Africa and sustains a massive population of wildlife. We enter the Chobe once more in the early evening, this time on an optional river cruise that offers us incredible views of the animals searching for water as the sun sets. Satisfied with a lovely day of game viewing and such, we unwind beneath the star-speckled African sky.

Trip Highlights: Chobe National Park, game drive, Chobe River sunset river cruise

Day 2

Chobe National Park – Gweta / Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

After a early breakfast, we start a relaxing journey toward Gweta and the beginning of the Makgadikgadi Pans. Driving down we could encounter elephants relaxing next to the highway as there are no fences. We arrive at the lodge where you can either relax or explore the Salt Pans by hiring a 4×4 or quadbike. The evening is spent at the lodge relaxing in the peace of the pans.

Trip Highlights: Roaming wildlife, Makgadikgadi Pans

Day 3

Gweta – Maun, Botswana

After breakfast we follow a guide around the local village seeing how everyday life goes on in rural Botswana. Next stop Maun and picking up supplies for the excursion into the delta.

Trip Highlights: Rural Botswana, Local Villages, Maun
Accommodation: Delta Rain’s Sitatunga Camp or similar (Twin share rooms with en-suite facilities)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 250 kms
Approximate Driving Time: 4 Hours

Day 4

Maun – Okavango Delta, Botswana

Once we’ve gathered all of our bags and food supplies together, we grab our sunblock and hats and climb aboard our 4X4 vehicle in anticipation of discovering the hidden wonders of the Okavango Delta. This stunning area is a natural wetland network, extending over approximately 1.6 million hectares of northern Botswana due to the rivers gushing south from Angola that divide repetitively on the flat Botswana plans to create a complex system of channels and an inland ‘delta’ – the only one of its kind in the world. Following a relaxed drive over rough and winding paths, we cross the ‘Buffalo Fence’ that exposes us to the wilderness of Africa. Once we have located the water’s edge we meet up with our local guides who are trained and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We then climb into their mokoros (traditional dugout canoes) and are softly ‘poled’ and navigated through the narrow waterways. Moving smoothly over glimmering ponds whilst snaking our way through the lush, green bulrushes and gorgeous untamed lilies, we set up our camp beneath some shade in order to enjoy a hearty lunch.

The afternoon is dedicated to participating in a wonderful game walk with the local guides, observing mighty hippos from your Mokoro or just unwinding at camp. Our evenings are spent listening to the wild calls of animals in the distance whilst we gather around a crackling campfire and cheer for our guides to sing us a traditional Tswana song or two.

Trip Highlights: Okavango Delta, mokoro excursion, game walk, swimming, Island camping
Accommodation: Elephant Camp (Twin share pre-erected tents with en suite facilities – basic-style bucket shower & toilet)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 60 kms
Approximate Driving Time: 2 hours

Day 5

Okavango Delta – Maun, Botswana

Following a final game walk in the morning and a satisfying breakfast, we gather our things and pack them into our mokoros, leaving behind only our footprints. We smoothly glide over the quiet waterways and make our way back to the poler’s station where our 4X4 waits for us. Once we have said our goodbyes to our polers, we cross the buffalo fence and head back into civilization once more, where we delight in hot showers, a tasty lunch and a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. Feeling fresh and invigorated, this afternoon we are given a chance to join the guide for an outing into town where you are free to browse the shopping area and markets peppered around the central business district. A well-loved activity here is a flight over the Delta that gives you a fantastic aerial view of your enormous and magnificent surroundings. From the sky you will gain an entirely new perspective of the Delta and, subsequently, a better appreciation for the natural beauty that surrounded you for the past few days. Heading back to camp, we delight in a swim and a hearty supper that brings the night to an end, beneath the star-studded African sky.

Trip Highlights: Okavango Delta, mokoro excursion, game walk, swimming, Maun
Accommodation: Delta Rain’s Sitatunga Camp or similar (Twin share rooms with en-suite facilities)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 60kms
Optional Activities: Okavango Delta scenic flight per 5- seater plane – 45 min flight time US$470

Day 6

Maun – Khama Rhino Sanctuary

We awake early to a hearty breakfast and depart from Maun journeying through the greater Kalahari area via Mopipi, spotting enormous salt pans in the distance. Though it is a pleasant and beautiful drive, Mopipi’s population is rather small and is renowned as the least visited area in Botswana. We reach the Khama Rhino Sanctuary in the late morning and set up camp. In 1989, a few locals wanted to transform the Serowe Pan (formerly a hunting region) into a conservation area for the rhino that have made this place their home. The Pan was decided upon due to its rhino-friendly environment and its close proximity to a Botswana Defence Forse base which keeps the area guarded 24/7. Situated on the edge of the massive Kalahari Desert, Khama is a perfect environment for white rhino, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. Khama is a community-based wildlife project that aids the locals and preaches the significance of protecting these creatures.

At noon we are treated to an open game drive, accompanied by an expert local ranger. During this we are educated about the surrounding wildlife and are taught fascinating facts about the animals we see as well as the abundant flora. Our final evening on this tour is spent gathered around an open fire where we bond with each other over shared experiences and the beauty of Mother Africa.

Trip Highlights: Kalahari Desert fringes, Khama Rhino Sanctuary, open vehicle game drive
Accommodation: Camp Itumela or similar (Twin share room with en‐suite facilities)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance Covered: +/- 530kms
Approximate Driving Time: 8 hours

Day 7

Serowe – Johannesburg, South Africa

On our last day of our tour, we journey to the tiny mining town of Serowe prior to connecting with the main road south that leads us to the border post at Martin’s Drift. Crossing the magnificent Limpopo River into South Africa, we are treated to picturesque sights as we observe the transition from abundant plant life to populated civilization. Making our way via Mokopane where we stop for lunch, we journey into Gauteng and reach Johannesburg in the early evening, where our adventure with each other comes to an end.
