Meet your tour in Victoria Falls where you will discover an array of adventures. We travel to Chobe National Park where we join a game drive and watch the African sunset from the comfort of a river cruiser, expect a close encounter with hippo and elephants. We enter one of the world’s most unique wilderness areas, the Okavango Delta in Botswana where we follow the hippo trails in dugout canoes and take nature walks to discover the islands. We make our way to Ghanzi where you’ll be entertained with local tribal dancing from the San Community before ending your tour in Windhoek.

Our tours come with an Activity Package. This is an optional additional payment that covers what we consider to be ‘essential activities’ on our tours and therefore this itinerary has been written with these items included in the day-by-day itinerary. Ideally we would include all of these, but not everyone can afford this.
Today we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls National Park. As we stay in Victoria Falls tonight, you have sufficient time to explore the falls and visit all of the view-points for some great photo opportunities. It’s a good idea to arrive the day before if you would like to book any of the optional activities available.
Botswana - Chobe National Park
We depart Victoria Falls and head towards Kasane. Upon arrival at Kasane we set up camp on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon we enjoy a scenic sunset boat cruise in Chobe National Park. Elephants, Hippo, Crocodiles, Eland and many other creatures reside in Chobe so keep your cameras ready.
An early start and our journey will take us to Maun where we will spend the night. Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta and this afternoon we will prepare for the bush-camping excursion, packing small overnight bags. Your guides will provide you with a briefing about the next few days’ activities and the community run tourism operation.
After breakfast we board our local 4×4 truck transport for our trip into the Okavango Delta, where we meet with our local guides and polers for our mokoro (traditional canoe) trip to our remote bush camp. In the afternoon there is a nature walk with a local guide which gives a great chance to view wildlife on foot. Tonight is spent swapping stories around the camp fire and enjoying the serenity of the Delta. Please note: If you have not purchased the Activity Package you will stay at the campsite in Maun for the following 2 days.
Please note: If you have not purchased the Activity Package you will stay at the campsite in Maun for the following 2 nights.
There is normally an early morning nature walk with your local guides, splitting up into smaller groups so there is a better chance of seeing the wildlife. This is followed by breakfast and a relaxed day around the camp site. Often there is the chance to swim in the clear water. Test your skills as a mokoro poler, it’s not as easy as the locals make it look!
Delta to Maun
Another early morning walk before breakfast and then it’s time to board our mokoro canoe for the trip back to the truck (depending on the water levels). Then we say good bye to our local guides and journey back to the Maun campsite for lunch and a relaxing afternoon. Do not be alarmed if we are joined at camp by local dairy cows later in the evening as they sometimes roam through the back of the camp.
We depart early and head towards Ghanzi. Once at camp we will meet with a local Bushmen community and experience some traditional Tribal Dancing. There are also some traditional bushman huts that you have the opportunity to stay in for a nominal fee.
After an early morning game drive we set off towards Windhoek, the Capital city of Namibia. On the way we stop at a popular craft market where you can barter for handmade gifts to take home. Windhoek is not only the capital; it is also the cultural, social and economic centre of Namibia. On arrival in Windhoek our guide will take us on a short city tour in our truck. Your tour ends on arrival in Windhoek, but it is nice to join the group for a final meal out at Joe’s Beer House, an exciting dining experience!
