Day 1 - Maun, Botswana
Dinner on own account

Our adventure begins in Maun, a small town located on the South Eastern edge of the Okavango Delta and our access point to the wilderness of Botswana. For the more adventurous of heart there is a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (own expense). The day ends with a relaxing sundowner drink at the pool, and a meal in the lodge restaurant, (own expense) celebrating the start of the journey.

Day 2, 3, 4 and 5 - Moremi Game Reserve and Savuti, Botswana
Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

We have 4 nights in these conservation areas with time to explore the various habitats. We spend our time on game drives watching the plentiful wildlife including wild dog, elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion & other game.

Moremi Game Reserve rates as one of the leading wildlife areas of the world and we take our open 4WD vehicle into Moremi for fantastic game viewing! Grasslands, floodplains, forests, lily lagoons and winding water channels combine to form a variety of game viewing habitats.

Moving north over the sand ridge and into the Mababe depression we arrive at the Savuti Marsh. This open grassland area attracts herds of zebra and wildebeest, which in turn draw the large lion prides for which Savuti is famous. We camp wild in the central Chobe National Park at either Savuti or Zwei-Zwei.

Day 6 and 7 - Chobe National Park, Botswana
Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

The Chobe River flows lazily along the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park attracting some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. In the early morning we search for game on the flood plains of the Chobe River.  The late afternoon game viewing “sundowner” cruise is a highlight as we see the mighty elephant herds returning to the Chobe River to quench their thirst. We camp at Kasane on the Chobe River for night 7.  (One dinner at own expense). 

Day 8 and 9 - Livingstone, Zambia
Breakfast

We camp for 2 nights in Zambia near Livingstone town on the banks of the Zambezi River. Enjoy a spectacular walk through tropical vegetation to the very edge of the “Mosi oa Tunya” or “the smoke that thunders” - Victoria Falls. Opportunities to white water raft on the mighty Zambezi River, Bungi Jump, or take a “flight of angels” (own expense).

Day 10 - Tour ends in Livingstone, Zambia

Tour ends at 08:00 after breakfast.  Transfers to local airports are available.
