Day 1
You will be met at Windhoek Airport and transferred 1-hour to your hotel.
 
Check in and relax under warm blue Namibian skies.
Day 2
This morning depart Windhoek around 08.00 for your small group tour to Etosha National Park and through the Caprivi to Chobe National Park in Botswana.
 
We travel northwards for 5-hours via Okahandja, where Kavango woodcarvers practise their trade at a large open air craft market on the outskirts of the town. We continue to the world famous Etosha National Park and check into our hotel situated near the eastern gate.
 
Most small group tours are dual language with a bilingual guide, but as Namibia was a former German colony there are normally more German-speakers than English-speakers on tour. On escorted group tours please note that for operational reasons it is sometimes necessary to substitute one hotel with another of similar quality. Porterage of one suitcase is included.
Day 3
Today is devoted to the abundant wildlife of the famous Etosha National Park, one of the largest wildlife conservation in Africa surrounding an enormous salt pan that is the size of the Netherlands.
 
During drier seasons it becomes an expanse of white cracked mud, shimmering with mirages and spiralling dust devils. Waterholes along the southern edge frequently offer a rewarding game viewing experience, including several rare species such as black and white rhino.
 
This park is home to four of the Big 5, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino (as the terrain does not support buffalo) and its waterholes support a rich diversity of other mammals and birds, including species such as the black-faced impala, roan, cheetah and Namibia’s smallest antelope, the Damara dik-dik.
Day 4
A full day on the road today, as we leave Etosha and drive 6-hours to the lush Kavango region.
 
En route we stop at the Hoba Meteorite, the largest known meteorite in the world which crashed to earth some 80,000 years ago. We continue through the Kavango region, which is famous for its woodcrafters, towards Rundu.
 
In the late afternoon we check into our lodge situated on the lush banks of the Kavango River, with the option of a sundowner cruise.
Day 5
Today we follow the route of the Okavango River eastwards, through the game-rich Caprivi region.
 
The Caprivi has abundant game with hundreds of elephant, large herds of rhino and many other species that migrate to the Kwando Floodplains before the onset of the summer rains. Roan antelope, kudu, impala and zebra also roam these vast plains.
 
We check into our lodge close to Mahangu National Park with views of the Buffalo River. Here there is the optional activity of either a late afternoon boat cruise or a visit to Popa Falls.
Day 6
This morning enjoy a game drive in Mahangu Game Reserve - a birders paradise that has the Kwando River as its western border.
 
This is Namibia's smallest but best populated game park, as it forms part of an ancient migration route for a variety of animals that move between Botswana and Namibia each season. It has a high number of elephants and many antelope not see elsewhere in Namibia such as roan and sable antelope, tsessebe, red lechwe and sitatunga.
 
The park is divided into three different habitats - the Kavango River, the flood plains known as Omurambas, and dense woodlands - which combine to create a habitat for over 400 different bird species.
Day 7
This morning we visit a traditional Caprivi Village to learn more about their customs and traditions.
 
We then continue eastwards 2-hours through the Caprivi, travelling through kiaat forests and local homesteads to Katima Mulilo - “the place where the fires were put out” - on the banks of the Zambezi River and forming the natural border with Zambia.
 
We check into our lodge and relax on the banks of the Chobe River, with optional sundowners on a river beach.
Day 8
This morning enjoy a half day canoeing excursion down the Chobe River, silently floating along the lush river banks and enjoying the rich diversity of bird and wildlife, with included lunch.
 
In the afternoon we return to our lodge by boat (depending on water levels) or enjoy a guided walk across the flood plains. Afternoon is at leisure to relax at your lodge and enjoy the river-based wildlife all around you.
Day 9
This morning we cross the border into Botswana and enter Chobe National Park situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, where four African countries meet - Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
 
Game viewing opportunities should present themselves immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see elephant, buffalo, wildebeest and other species as we travel to Kasane, where you will be dropped off at the end of your tour. After completing Zimbabwe immigration formalities, you will be met and transferred 2-hours to your hotel near Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River.
 
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 10
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 11
Transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
