Overview

The Botswana Highlights adventure tour starts in Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. The bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline. We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will 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. It has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, making it an ideal location for African safaris and its the third largest park in Botswana, after the Central Kalahari game Reserve and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Leaving Chobe, we set off for 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 guide your mokoros through the waterways and nature walks will fill your days.

Day 01

Victoria Falls

Today is your arrival day in Victoria Falls and will be able to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls at your own leisure.  The bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline. For the more relaxed traveller there are craft markets to explore and a delicious high tea is on offer at the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Day 02

Victoria Falls to Kasane

After breakfast we travel the short distance to the Botswana border, crossing into Botswana we set up camp on the banks of the Chobe River. For those who have purchased the Activity Package we begin our exploration in 4×4 vehicles and enjoy an afternoon game drive through the national park followed by a boat cruise, which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many elephants that frequent the Chobe riverfront in the afternoon.

Day 03

Nata

Leaving Kasane early, we set off for Nata where we will overnight.  Our activity package will afford us the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon guided excursion to the Pans and Nata Sanctuary to appreciate the spectacular view and sundowner.

Day 04

Maun

Our journey today takes us across the northern reaches of the Makgadigadi Pans and the road to Maun is lined with majestic examples of the iconic Baobab tree.  Upon arrival in Maun, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an optional scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (time and weather permitting – this could take place on day 6).

 

Day 05

Okavango Delta

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 mooring 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. Those guests who have pre-purchased the upgrade package – will be transferred into the Delta upon arrival in Maun and will re-join the group on the morning of day 7.  Please speak to your consultant for a copy of the programme for your Okavango Delta Excursion.

Day 06

Maun

For those guests who have purchased the activity package, you will be collected from the hotel before first light and we will drive to the South gate to enter Moremi Game Reserve.  As the lagoons and channels form a vital section of the Okavango Delta eco-system, sightings of bird and animal populations become more frequent as the day progresses.  The game viewing routes chosen on the day by the professional guide may vary especially when high floods are experienced as certain roads may be closed or impassable.  Your tour comes to an end when we return to Maun after the Moremi game drive.
