Our popularitinerary Suggestions
All our itinerary holidays are fully customisable
Arrive at Victoria Falls and transfer to hotel. Accommodation here is for two nights at the Bayette Guest House on a bed and breakfast basis.
There are lots of activities available here. Visiting the Falls is a must and viewpoints are easily accessible on foot. For adrenalin junkies, there is white-water rafting, bungee and zip-wiring and for everybody, river cruises, helicopter flights and visits to the national park.
It is also possible to cross the bridge into Zambia and view the Falls from a different perspective.
Chobe River Front
After breakfast, drive into Botswana and the Chobe National Park. Accommodation here is at The Old House in Kasane, adjacent to the Chobe River, on a full board basis. The Chobe Riverfront is an elephant mecca; home to the largest density of African elephants in the world. It will leave you feeling tiny as giant elephant bulls stroll up next to your vehicle or snorkel alongside your boat. It will make you feel lost as hundreds of hippos and buffaloes crowd you out on the floodplains. It will put your heart in your throat as prides of lions stalk antelopes by the water’s edge, and it will leave you alone with your thoughts while the classic red sunsets melt over the river to a soundtrack of whistling fish eagles. A boat cruise is included. Other activities available include game drives, canoeing, village walks, etc.
Khwai Community Area
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to the Khwai Community area to stay at the Khwai Guest House for three nights on a full board basis. Activities include game drives in Moremi Game Reserve or the Khwai concession, traditional dugout canoe (mokoro) excursions, night drives and cultural tours of the Khwai community.
Lying on the eastern fringes of the Okavango Delta with a rich wildlife population and no borders drawn around it on the map, Khwai is often overlooked in favour of its more famous neighbours, though in the winter months it can hold its own for the quality of big game viewing.
During your time here, you’ll spend most days exploring the narrow Khwai River, which forms the natural boundary to the Moremi Game Reserve on the south. The Khwai River is a beacon for wildlife and plays host to leopards stalking lechwe in the long grass, lions swimming from the banks to save their cubs’ during territorial disputes and crocodiles competing with wild dogs for a midday meal of impala.
Khwai is also home to a village community where people live side by side with the resident wildlife.
After breakfast, transfer to the airstrip for your flight to Oddballs' Enclave Camp, located on the edge of Chief's Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, for two nights on a full board basis Accommodation here is in comfortable en-suite tents on wooden platforms shaded by reed shelters. There is comfortable seating in the bar and lounge area which overlooks the sweep of the delta and is great for game viewing. The highlights at Oddballs are full or half day walking safaris, ideal for the active traveller, along with paddling by mokoro (canoe) in the shallow waters watching hippos, birds and other wildlife. On day 11, after breakfast, transfer to airport for flight to Maun and onward or return travel.
