Zambezi National Park / Victoria Falls
Arrive independently to Victoria Falls International Airport and join your included transfer to the beautiful Victoria Falls River Lodge. The first private game lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park, this luxury tented lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, just minutes from the Victoria Falls, allowing you the chance to explore both the National Park and the Falls area.
Over the next 3 days you can enjoy a number of included activities designed to show you the best of this area. Two selected activities are included each day. These include a guided tour of Victoria Falls (entrance fee excluded) which will take you up-close to this unforgettable natural wonder.
Although the Falls are the main draw for this area, the wildlife is just as impressive, and the included game drives in Zambezi National Park have been designed to showcase this. Expect to be on the lookout for members of the “Big 5”, including elephant, lion, Cape buffalo and leopard. In addition to this there are good chances of spotting hippo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, sable antelope, common eland and much more.
Birding here is also marvellous, with over 400 species of birds having been recorded within the National Park. Pel's fishing owl, African skimmer, collared palm thrush, lanner falcon, goliath heron, African finfoot, rock pratincole and long-toed lapwing are considered to be among the speciality birds of the park. Birdwatching tours are available as part of your included activities.
An included relaxing voyage on one of the Victoria Falls River Lodge luxury river cruisers is arguably one of the best ways on earth to soak in the magnificence of the iconic Zambezi River and its surrounds. Watch as the world awakes and the sun’s first rays skip and dance across the shimmering surface of the mighty Zambezi - a truly revitalising way to start any day! Or, for the not-so-early-birds, sit back and let the gentle ebb and flow of the Zambezi lull and relax you. Join in on Mother Nature’s Happiest Hour and sip on a sun-downer whilst viewing her creatures, big and small, coming to the water’s edge to lap at its liquid life.
3 nights’ accommodation at Victoria Falls River Lodge on fully-inclusive basis, with all meals, local drinks, daily scheduled transfers to Victoria Falls and selected activities included.
Included activities: Twice daily activities from the list - Tour of Victoria Falls excluding entrance fee, bird watching, morning/afternoon game drive in Zambezi National Park, sunrise/sunset river cruise, guided bush walks.
Chobe National Park
On the morning of day 4 you will join your transfer to Kasane Airport for your included charter flight to the Savuti Airstrip where you will transfer to Savute Elephant Lodge in the heart of the Chobe National Park. The Savuti area of the National Park offers a wide diversity of habitats, wildlife and landscapes that are simply a delight to explore.
Over the next 3 days you can enjoy included early morning and afternoon game drives into the National Park to enjoy time among Africa’s largest populations of elephants. But it’s not just elephants you will be on the lookout for. Big cats are often on the prowl, from leopards to lions, and depending on the season, you will also experience the great migrations such as zebra and antelope. Rare sightings might include the endangered wild dog, rock-climbing klipspringers and the elegant roan antelope. Equally atmospheric and exciting are the evening drives, as the shadows lengthen and the sky turns red. Animals and birds emerge from their siesta, and suddenly the bush is alive with sights and sounds.
Although prolific, the area isn’t just about the wildlife, it’s also a feast for the eyes. Whitewashed skeletal trees set against green grass and huge blue skies, blinding red sunsets that spill purple and orange across the bush, and endless horizons that fade into a hazy mirage with the heat.
Out in the bush, where rocks rear up among stony hills you will find a collection of paintings that take your breath away. These works by Bushmen are thought to be more than 1,500 years old—beautiful images of elephant, giraffe, sable and eland antelope. You can enjoy a guided trip to these paintings followed by a visit to the amazing nearby baobab grove.
Other activities include guided stargazing experiences where with the use of powerful telescopes and the naked eye you will experience the vast, dark dome of the African night sky and learn about how the Bushmen used the stars to locate the true south.
3 nights’ accommodation at Savute Elephant Lodge on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, local drinks, park fees and activities included.
Included activities: Day game drives, birding, stargazing, visit to Bushmen paintings and Baobab trees
On day 7 it’s time to make your way to the final destination of your safari tour as you transfer back to the airstrip for your included charter flight to Xaxaba Island in the heart of the remarkable Okavango Delta. You will then transfer to the beautiful and idyllic Eagle Island Lodge, your home for the last 3 nights of your itinerary.
The Okavango Delta is an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands, and your 3 days here will be filled with exciting activities based around the waterways and its inhabitants. You will have multiple chances to get up-close to elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, big cats and more as you enjoy included Mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) excursions, walking safaris and day and night game drives. Other included activities include local village visits and evening sunset barge cruises that offer a memorable way to round off a day of Delta adventures.
As an added bonus to your luxury safari, your trip also includes a wonderful helicopter safari where you will experience the remoteness of the Okavango Delta and get a bird's eye view of the inaccessible lakes and islands. Swoop down upon seeing a herd of buffalo crossing the river, hover above large herds of zebra unperturbed by the aircraft and enjoy a celebratory glass of sparkling wine as you touch down on a remote island for a different perspective on this unique place. This activity offers a truly unforgettable experience.
3 nights’ accommodation at Eagle Island Lodge on a fully-inclusive basis with all meals, local drinks, park fees and activities included.
