Arrive at Victoria Falls Airport, meet your representative and transfer to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge for two nights on a full board basis. The lodge is set high on a plateau forming a boundary to the Zambezi National Park and is just 4km from the Falls themselves.
There are lots of activities available here. Visiting the Falls is a must, and a guided tour is included as part of your package. An unforgettable sunset cruise along the Zambezi River above the Falls is also included. Here you can sit back and relax with a drink in hand and enjoy delicious snacks while looking out for elephant, hippo, crocodile, magnificent birds and other wildlife. The finale of the cruise is the unforgettable sight of the sun setting over the Zambezi River, turning the sky into a myriad of reds, oranges and pinks and casting shadows and silhouettes all around.
Included in your stay, you will also enjoy one MaKuwa-Kuwa Dinner and one Boma experience with a dinner and drum show.
From the Lodge, game walks and game drives in the Zambezi National Park, hide sits and a visit to the Vulture Culture Experience can also be arranged (not included in your package). For adrenalin junkies, there is white-water rafting, bungee, zip-wiring and helicopter flights. It is also possible to cross the bridge into Zambia and view the Falls from a different perspective.

The experience here is all about watching the amazing and abundant wildlife congregate on the river banks. This is an elephant mecca, home to the largest density of elephants in the world. These are accompanied by antelopes and lions, hippos and buffaloes, giraffes and zebras, whistling fish eagles and other beautiful birds.

Mobile Safari - Moremi Game Reserve
After breakfast on day 5, return by boat and road to Kasane and then by charter flight to Moremi Game Reserve, where you will stay at Letaka Tented Camp for three nights on a full board basis. This comfortable camp is part of the true adventure of safari, with the sounds and sights of the African Bush all around, day and night. The Fully Serviced Safari is a nonparticipation safari, where the Letaka Safaris team will carry out all the necessary camp chores to keep the safari running smoothly.
Lying on the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve is all about watching for big game in diverse habitats. Ware adapted antelopes, buffaloes, elephants, hippos and lots of predators, such as lions, leopards and wild dogs abound here. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast stands of Miscanthus and Phragmites, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent. Activities here are in the Xakanaxa region and will include daily game drives.
3 nights’ accommodation at Letaka Safaris Mobile Safari on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, drinks, park fees and game drives included. The mobile safari includes the services of a Professional Guide, Camp Chef and Camp Assistants.
Mobile Safari - Khwai Community Area
On Day 8, you will take a slow game drive through the Moremi Game reserve and into the Khwai Community area for the next three nights at another Letaka tented camp. The drive takes you past Dombo Hippo Pools and you arrive at the camp in 3-4 hours, having covered some 60km.
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. The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area. We spend three nights camping at an exclusive spot in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Night drives offer you an opportunity to find nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day. We will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot. Night drives and guided walks are conducted outside the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Khwai community area.
3 nights’ accommodation at Letaka Safaris Mobile Safari on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, drinks, park fees, game drives and walking safaris included. The mobile safari includes the services of a Professional Guide, Camp Chef and Camp Assistants.
After breakfast on day 11, transfer to Khwai Airstrip for your flight to Xugana Island Lodge in the Okavango Delta for two nights on a full board basis.
Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a wooded island adjoining the lagoon within the Xugana private concession and is a spectacular permanent water site in the Okavango Delta that focuses mainly on water-based activities including Mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) excursions and motorboat safaris.
The Okavango Delta is where the wild things are: an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. The real magic of the Delta lies in its water, trickling through from far away highlands, and spreading across the channels and floodplains. At Xugana you will enjoy a pure delta experience, exploring the waterways on mokoro trips in eco-friendly dugout canoes, combined with walking on surrounding lagoons and islands in the concession. Bird watching opportunities are outstanding and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also on offer at the lodge. Game drives may also be offered within the private concession but are not included in your package.
On the morning of Day 13, you will return to the airstrip for your flight to Maun for onward or return travel.
2 nights’ accommodation at Xugana Island Lodge on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, local drinks (excl. spirits) and park fees and mentioned activities included.
