A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.


Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 1, Victoria Falls to Chobe National Park

This morning we depart Victoria Falls and after a short drive cross the border of Zimbabwe into Botswana. We set up camp for the night at the banks of the Chobe River and prepare for our first night under Botswana's star-filled skies. Chobe is renowned for the large herds of elephant around the Chobe River so bring plenty of spare film!

Day 2, Chobe National Park to Maun via (Nata)

Today, after an early morning start, we travel to Maun - the base camp for the Okavango Delta region. We pass by the stark and endless-looking Makgadikgadi Pans so keep an eye out for Elephant and Giraffe as well as birdlife.

Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 3, Maun to Okavango Delta

You have the opportunity to take a 3 day / 2 night excursion into the Delta. You travel in local transport and then in mokoros, the local dug out canoes, which are poled by local guides through the winding waterways. These local canoes are a perfect way to navigate this waterway wonder - the biggest inland Delta in the world. Your guides will select a place out in the bush to set up camp. An afternoon game walk will allow you to experience the Delta wilderness in all its glory.

Day 4, Okavango Delta

Early morning and late afternoon game walks give you time in the middle of the day to relax, chill out and enjoy your surroundings. Why don't you have a go at poling your own mokoro? It is not as easy as it looks!

Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 5, Maun to Gweta

Leaving Maun and the Delta behind us we travel east to Gweta and camp near the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

Day 6, Gweta

A free day to soak up some nature with a guided walk to the huge Baobab trees,  a trip to the Makgadikgadi Pans or visit a local village.

Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 7, Gweta to Palapye via (Khama Rhino Sanctuary)

We leave Gweta behind us and haed for Palapye and the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. This community based wildlife project is well worth a visit before we spend the night on the banks of the tranquil Lotsane River.

Day 8, Palapye to Johannesburg

Today we cross the border into South Africa and a long drive brings us to the outskirts of the 'city of gold', Johannesburg and the end of our trip.
