Overview

Leaving Johannesburg we make our way to visit the Khama Rhino Sanctuary before heading to Maun in Botswana to prepare for our Okavango Delta experience. Photograph hippos and crocodiles from your Mokoro (dugout canoe) before heading up to Chobe National Park.

Finish up the tour with endless activities in Victoria Falls. You can also choose to do this tour from Victoria Falls to Johannesburg, or combine it with our 5 Day Best of Zimbabwe tour.
