Day 1
You will be met at Maun Airport by your guide for your exciting camping safari to see the amazing wildlife of Botswana. After collecting any essentail provisions, including all the drinks you will need (own account), we travel for 5-hours to Moremi Game Reserve.
 
Here you can marvel at the contrast between the semi-desert Kalahari and the lush water wilderness you will find in the Okavango Delta. In the afternoon we arrive at our wilderness camp (with bush ablutions) and erect our dome tents, before relaxing around the campfire in this pristine wildlife conservation area. All meals will be cooked over an open fire under the stars.

Day 2
The seasonal Okavango Delta is flooded annually by the great Okavango River, whose waters flow inland from Angola into the vast Kalahari – never finding the sea, but instead forming a great inland delta whose waters are absorbed by the desert.
 
Comprising 6,000 square miles of crystal clear channels, serene lagoons and a myriad of islands, the Okavango Delta forms a natural oasis that sustains a vast variety of wildlife and birds of all descriptions. The waters are at their height from July to October, forming an amazing wetlands ecosystem that is one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
 
Activities centre on early morning and late afternoon game viewing and bird watching, with over 240 different bird species. Depending on the season, mekoro excursions may be available as well as game drives to track some of the larger species that inhabit this region - including buffalo, hippo and elephants. In the evening relax around a blazing fire under balmy African skies.
Day 3
Today is one long game drive as we travel 6-hours from Moremi Game Reserve to Savuti, on sandy roads suitable only for 4x4 vehicles, surrounded by the open savannah and camelthorn trees of Chobe Game Reserve – Botswana’s premier game park.
 
The Savuti Plains offer world-acclaimed game viewing – including the famous Savute lion prides, leopard, wild dogs, bull elephants, black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, hyena, cheetah, tsessebe, kudu, impala, ostrich and much more.
 
In the late afernoon we check into our wilderness camp (with bush ablutions) and erect our dome tent.
Day 4
The Savuti Plains offer world-acclaimed game viewing – including the famous Savute lion prides, leopard, wild dogs, bull elephants, black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, hyena, cheetah, tsessebe, kudu, impala, ostrich and much more.
 
The summer rains bring a feast for lion, hyena and cheetah, as migrating zebra and wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the marsh. Cape buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell the resident population of over 300 different species, making this a bird watchers delight. Carmine bee-eaters perch on the back of kori bustards, red-crested korhaans plummet from the sky in daring mating displays and marabou storks roost in the trees whilst woodland kingfishers sing you to sleep. Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon, with balance of day at leisure.
Day 5
This morning transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Kasane. Here you will be met and transferred to your lodge overlooking 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.  After checking in to your lodge, enjoy a game drive with your guide in his vehicle.
 
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. Later dine overlooking the river in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
Day 6
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive  into the great Chobe National Park. This region is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life.
  
Chobe 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! 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.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool before enjoying an optional game viewing boat ride on the Chobe River to give you a completely different wildlife perspective. Tiger fishing can also be arranged on the river.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Please note: some lodges provide full day game viewing, combining boat rides with land-based game drives.
 
Day 7
This morning transfer 45-minutes to the Zimbabwe border and, after completing immigration formalities, continue 2-hours to Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River.
 
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 during the wet months (February to June) but the falls are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
In the afternoon (16.00) you will be collected from your hotel and taken on a 1.5-hour game drive through Zambezi National Park to your campsite on the banks of the Zambezi River. After a wonderful sunset and drinks around a roaring campfire, enjoy a delicious dinner under the brilliant stars of the southern sky. Your dome tent will be erected for you and all camping gear will be provided.
Day 8
After breakfast cooked over an open fire and a safety briefing (where you will be required to sign an indemnity form), we embark upon your exciting Zambezi River Canoe Safari.
 
We launch our canoes onto the river and spend the morning paddling 11 miles (18 km) downstream through gentle grade one and two rapids, exploring various channels, birding and game viewing. A picnic lunch is served along the way. Afterwards transfer back to Victoria Falls, arriving around 14.30.
Day 9
Today we recommend exploring the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest on foot, with magnificent views (we suggest you take your own raincoat, as those on hire are often well used).
 
Afterwards participate in one of many local optional activities such as a helicopter flight over the falls or an elephant-back safari, or simply relax and enjoy the facilities of your hotel.
 
In the late afternoon we recommend an optional Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River to see hippos, crocodiles and the abundant bird life.
Day 10
At leisure to explore the small town of Victoria Falls or relax on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
  
Adrenalin seekers can participate in many adventure activities such as canoeing in the gentler rapids above the falls, abseiling or white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), or watch bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge!
Day 11
Transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
