Itinerary

01

Day 1: Victoria Falls

Arrive at any time. Arrival transfer included.

02

Day 2: Victoria Falls/Okavango Delta

Cross the border into Botswana, via a short border crossing through Namibia, continuing on to the Okavango Delta.

Transfer to a houseboat, which is home for the next 2 nights in the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta. Travelling by houseboat allows us to explore a more secluded area of the delta, taking small boats into the channels and waterways for wildlife viewing and birdwatching.
Arrive at the houseboat this afternoon where we receive a safety briefing and orientation from the crew. Check into our cabins, enjoy lunch then take our first skiff boat excursion.

Enjoy the journey into the “Panhandle” area of the Okavango Delta, in Northern Botswana. This area is recognized as one of the most peaceful areas in the Delta, due to its remoteness. There are only a handful of permanent camps and boats operating in this wilderness area, which makes it an ideal place to stay.

03

Day 3: Okavango Delta

Enjoy the day on a houseboat with early morning and late afternoon wildlife excursions. Opt to enjoy a cultural excursion to Tsoldilo Hills to view ancient San Bushman rock paintings, or relax on deck with a cool drink watching the passing scenery.

Day 5: Maun/Moremi Game Reserve

Drive to the Khwai River area bordering Moremi Game Reserve. With astounding wildlife, this area has been rated one of the best for game viewing in the world. Relax this evening on the camp deck, admiring the stunning views with a cool drink.
Take a leisurely drive to our camp in the Khwai River area via Savuti, an area best known for large populations of bull elephants and prides of lions that patrol the banks of this channel. Due to the fact that none of Botswana's wildlife areas are fenced, game can move freely between wilderness areas. This region's diversity of game is astounding and Moremi has been rated as one of the best game viewing areas in the world.

Our lodge boasts a majestic dining and lounge area leading onto a viewing deck over the bushveldt. Enjoy spectacular sunsets over sundowners from the quaint bar or from the deck of your comfort en-suite tent.

In the early afternoon, head south towards the Ghoha Hills and the Savuti area, enjoying game viewing along the hills and surrounding water holes.

At Ghoha Hills Savuti Camp, meru tents have been placed on platforms on the hills overlooking Chobe National Park. The tents are large, spacious with en-suite. The guest area consists of an intimate lounge, bar and dining area overlooking the Ghoha Hills.
