Overview

Feel the rumble and hear the roar of the Zambezi River as it flows over the cliffs that form the mighty Victoria Falls. A suitable setting for the launch of our exploration which sees us cross the border into neighbouring Botswana, along the route that some refers to as the “game drive route”.. Our 7 day round trip tour of Botswana, starts in the town of Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. Leaving Victoria Falls, we head to the border of Botswana and make our way down to the town of Nata, a stone’s throw away from the Makgadikgadi salt pans. After our optional exploration of the pans, we set off for Maun, known as the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Here, you will have the opportunity to take an optional scenic flight over the wilderness plains before we board our open 4×4 game viewing safari vehicles and head in the direction of the Moremi Game Reserve, situated on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometres. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. Polers will guide your mokoro through the waterways and a nature walk will keep us entertained. Before we discover our next national park, you will enjoy an afternoon game drive in open 4×4 safari vehicles through the Moremi Game Reserve. Next we set off for a full day of game driving through the Savuti Game Reserve, which is a unique area bordered by the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park and is renowned as a big game area and known for having the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa. Finally we reach Chobe National Park where we spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat. The Chobe National Park is undoubtedly the country’s most beautiful and popular nature and game reserve.

Day 01

Victoria Falls to Nata

This morning we will leave Victoria Falls travel south towards Nata. Some people also call this route the “game drive route”, as you might see some wildlife while travelling through the area. In the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon guided excursion to the Makgadikgadi Pans and Nata Sanctuary to appreciate the spectacular view and sundowner.

Day 02

Greater Moremi Game Reserve Area

You will be separated from your Nomad truck for the next 2 nights and it is therefore important that you pack/gather your personal belongings which you may need, before we depart for Maun today as there is limited time in Maun for re-packing and storing. Please pack lightly and only take what you need for the following two nights. This morning we rise early and make our way towards Maun, where upon arrival in Maun you will have the opportunity to go on an optional scenic flight over the Delta (time and weather permitting). After your optional flight, you will be collected from Maun and will be transferred to the Greater Moremi Game Reserve Area in smaller safari type vehicles. This evening our guide will prepare us on what to expect for our mokoro excursion into the Okavango Delta and our game drive in Moremi Game Reserve.

Day 03

Greater Moremi Game Reserve Area

Heading out early, we transfer by safari vehicle to the poling station, 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 pole and 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 spotted in this pristine wilderness area, including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra. After lunch, we will return to Moremi Game Reserve for our afternoon game drive which will be conducted in open 4×4 safari vehicles. The game viewing routes chosen during the afternoon by the professional guide may vary especially when high floods are experienced as certain roads may be closed or impassable.

Day 04

Savuti Game Reserve

The Savuti Game Reserve is a unique area bordered by the Okavango Delta to west and Chobe National Park to the east. Savuti is renowned as a big game area and known for having the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa. Today we will spend most of our day travelling through the Savuti Game Reserve in search of the species that roam the plains. Offering habitats from wetland, open water to the grasslands and Savannah woodland, we hope to see as many species of fauna and flora possible. This afternoon we arrive on the banks of the Chobe River and will be re-united with our Nomad truck in the town of Kasane.

Day 05

Chobe National Park

You will be collected early from camp and will venture out in open 4×4 safari type vehicles to game drive through the Chobe National Park. You will return to camp in time for lunch and a quick siesta before we head out in the afternoon to explore the Chobe National Park from the river, enjoying a leisurely boat cruise which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many elephants that frequent the river in the afternoons.

Day 06

Zimbabwe -Victoria Falls

With the memories of our wildlife encounters firmly etched in our minds, we cross the border into Zimbabwe this morning and travel the short distance to Victoria Falls. Today you have the opportunity to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls at your leisure, also known by the local name of “Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders). While much of today is dedicated to viewing the mighty Zambezi River as it drops into the Batoka Gorge below, the bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline in the afternoon. For the more relaxed traveller there are craft markets and coffee shops on offer as well.
