Day 1
You will be met at Victoria Falls Airport and transferred to your hotel near the mighty Zambezi River.
 
Located in the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA), where the borders of five African countries converge, the sheer scale of this vast international conservation project is difficult to comprehend. It encompasses a bewildering range of experiences, ranging from the mighty Victoria Falls to the lifeforce of the region, the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers.
 
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains, but they are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
Day 2
Today we recommend exploring on foot the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforests, which offer magnificent views.
  
Afterwards you may wish to visit Elephants Walk, a small crafts complex across the road from The Kingdom hotel, where you can see talented local artists and sculptors at work and support them by buying one of their items. Alternatively you can participate in various optional activities, such as a helicopter flight over the falls or an elephant interaction.
  
In the late afternoon we recommend an optional cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see hippos, crocodiles and abundant birdlife.
 
Note: We suggest you take your own raincoat for walking in the rainforest, as those on hire are well used.
Day 3
At leisure to explore the town of Victoria Falls on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
  
Many optional activities are available in this small town, where adrenalin seekers come to participate in adventure activities such as canoeing down the Zambezi River, white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), abseiling and bungee jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
Day 4
This morning take a shared 2-hour transfer to the Botswana border at Kasane. After completing immigration formalities, connect with your onward transfer to your game lodge situated near the Chobe River.
 
Chobe National Park is Botswana’s premier wildlife reserve and is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, where four African countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Chobe River is the life-giving force of this region and provides a border between Botswana on the southern banks and Namibia on the northern banks. The river has extensive grassy floodplains on either side, which disappear under the annual floodwaters, making boats the best way of getting around.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy a boat ride on the Chobe River, which is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, antelope and other river-based wildlife today. Afterwards dine in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
Day 5
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with a lodge ranger.
  
Chobe National Park is home to vast herds of buffalo and elephant, as well as numerous other species which roam in profusion and diversity. During the dry season, vast elephant herds migrate from both south and north to congregate in their thousands along the Chobe River – the largest concentration of elephants in the whole of Africa. This migration of wildlife is possibly due to the creation of protected wildlife corridors, which allow the elephants to travel between the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Park (KAZA) countries safely. Also hope to see lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting animals before returning to your lodge.
 
Bird life along the river is also plentiful and you can hope to see a Fish eagle, Tawny eagle, African openbill stork, Marabou stork, Sacred ibis, Pied kingfisher, Cattle egret, Great egret, Spur-winged goose and much more, including Botswana's national bird - the glorious Lilac-breasted roller.
 
In the afternoon, enjoy another game-viewing boat ride on the Chobe River.
Day 6
Today enjoy two more game activities in Chobe National Park.
 
Activities on offer vary by lodge, but usually include fishing on the Zambezi River, addition game drives in Chobe National Park or boat rides on the river, which gives you a completely different wildlife perspective. Some lodges offer excursions to a Namibian village across the river to see their culture and way of life, with immigration formalities at both Kasane and on the Namibian side.
 
Each African culture within KAZA has its own particular traditions with regards to song, dance and dress, however the one thing that they all have in common is their staple diet of a maize meal porridge. In Botswana this is called 'sadza' but in Namibia it is known as 'inkoko' or 'pap'.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way – including the spectacular Southern Cross.
Day 7
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Chobe National Park before breakfast and your 15-minute transfer to Kasane Airport for your light aircraft flight to your game lodge in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
 
You will be met at the landing strip and transferred to your Okavango Delta game lodge. Settle in and relax in this pristine water wilderness and enjoy game viewing under spectacular blue African skies before dinner.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons.
Day 8
Today transfer from your lodge to your wilderness fly camp (with bush ablutions) in the Okavango Delta, where your dome tents will be erected for you.
 
Enjoy a late afternoon game viewing walk, before relaxing under the stars around a blazing campfire in this pristine wildlife conservation area. Camp beds will be provided with clean linen and all meals will be cooked over an open fire.
 
PACKING LIST:
Large kit bag (max.weight of 12kg - no hard suitcases)
Small backpack
Torch, with spare batteries and globes
Mosquito repellant lotion

Day 9

Here you can enjoy some of the best bird watching in the world, as well as track some of the larger species that inhabit this water wilderness - including buffalo, hippo and elephants. In the evening relax and enjoy dinner seated around the campfire.
Day 10
After a delicious breakfast cooked over an open fire, we pack up our wilderness camp and transfer back to your game lodge in the Okavango Delta, with bird watching and game viewing along the way.
