The Delta & Chobe Trail Adventure Tour starts in Victoria Falls, also known by the local name of “Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders), 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. The Chobe National Park can be divided up into four sections, making it a true rarity and an explorer’s paradise. 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 (mokoros) and take nature walks to discover the islands. Exploring the Okavango Delta is a must for any tourist visiting Botswana. While the programme of activities is flexible to accommodate the seasonal changes, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an endless list of activities. We make our way to Ghanzi where you’ll be entertained with local tribal dancing from the San Community before ending your tour in the capital and largest city of Namibia, Windhoek. All you have to do is book this tour and join us on an adventure of a lifetime!

The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station (approximately 1 hour transfer) where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the poling station. While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be encountered in this pristine wilderness area, including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the San culture and interaction with their Desert environment.

The nomadic San are hunter-gatherers that have passed down a rich knowledge of the plants and animals that play such an important part in their lifestyle
