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


Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 1, Victoria Falls

Today we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls, also known as the  “Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders). Day at leisure to explore all that Victoria Falls has to offer. Tonight we enjoy an optional dinner out, your guide will assist you to decide
on the many options available

Day 2, Victoria Falls to Kasane

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!

Okavango Delta to Johannesburg

Day 3, Chobe National Park to Caprivi Strip via (Nata)

Today we cross into Namibia as we journey across the Caprivi Strip, much of our day is spent travelling through Game Parks and there is always the
possibility of a lucky sighting. Our base tonight is on the banks of the Okavango River, here we will prepare for the upcoming Delta excursions. 

Day 4, Caprivi Strip to Okavango Delta

Returning to Botswana this morning we make our way into the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s great wilderness areas. The seasonality of the flood waters
lends the Delta its ever changing character. While water levels may fluctuate the tranquillity of this wilderness area remains constant.

Leaving the Delta behind us this morning we make our way to our overnight stop in the bustling town of Maun.
