Botswana & Victoria Falls

7
Days
A Mokoro is a traditional dugout canoe and is a wonderful way to experience the Okavango Delta and its wildlife.
Day
1
Maun Airport to Okavango Delta
We meet you at Maun Airport and ensure a smooth transition by light aircraft to your camp within the intriguing Okavango Delta. The Okavango is a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering over 17 000 square km, and is the largest inland delta in the world. Activities and, indeed, transport in the Delta, depends on the naturally fluctuating water levels, so we could be gliding through the waterways in a traditional mokoro or canoe, head down the channels on a motorized boat, drive into the wilds in wide-open safari vehicles, or even set off on a guided walking safari. Nature is always unpredictable, one of its primary joys!

2
Okavango Delta
Today you explore more of the Okavango Delta, renowned for its aquatic wildlife and birds, so it’s paradise for birdwatchers and wildlife lovers alike. From massive hippo to the prettiest kingfisher, there’s always life just around the corner.
The Delta is essentially a watery labyrinth of narrow canals best navigated by Mokoro, the traditional dugout canoe used by the local people. Mokoros are carved from the straight trunks of the strong, water- and crack-resistant Sausage Tree, and they’re a wonderfully serene and silent way to experience and explore the Delta. If something wild and wonderful occurs alongside you, then you’re secure in this tough wooden shell, your poler knowing and showing the way.

3
Okavango Delta to Moremi or Linyanti Region
Transfer by light aircraft to your camp in the Moremi or Linyanti Region. Moremi is one of Africa’s most beautiful wildlife reserves, and because of its wide range of habitats, you’re assured of dense concentrations of game year-round. The area falls within the tribal land of the Batswana people, and is named after the late Chief Moremi III. It was clear to his wife - who reigned after his death - that the game in their traditional hunting grounds was fast disappearing. With encouragement and support from conservationists, Mrs Moremi proclaimed the Moremi Game Reserve in March 1963 and the tribe agreed to vacate the land.
On the southern banks of the Linyanti River is the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. Here, the marsh subsides into lagoons and steadily flowing rivers: beautiful riverine forests of jackalberry and sausage trees lead to open grasslands and dry inland wooded areas.
Day
4
Moremi or Linyanti Region
Today we’re going to spend time here, game viewing in open safari vehicles, taking sensational photographs and falling in love with this extraordinary landscape. It’s so rich in wildlife, particularly in the dry winter months when elephants congregate in enormous numbers at the rivers and waterholes. It’s a wonderful sight! We’ll also be thrilled if we get to see the exquisite sable and roan antelope, and with luck, the red lechwe and aquatic sitatunga antelope which inhabit the wetlands. The main predators are lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena, and they’ll be high on our wish list!
Day
5
Moremi or Linyanti Region to Kasane Airport to Victoria Falls
This morning, we’ve time for another exquisite sunrise game drive with the joy of steaming mugs of coffee in the bush, before returning to pack up, and transfer by light aircraft to Kasane Airport…the next leg of our journey. On arrival, you’ll be met and taken by vehicle to your hotel in Victoria Falls town. Can you hear the roar of the Falls, otherwise known as Mosi au-Tunya – the smoke that thunders? You will.
Day
6
Victoria Falls
This morning we head off to do a to tour the mighty falls. Almost exactly halfway along the mighty Zambezi River’s 2700 kilometre journey from source to sea, lies Victoria Falls. Here the river plunges headlong into a 100m vertical chasm spanning the full one-and-a-half kilometre width of the river, creating the biggest curtain of falling water in the world.
And if you’re not overawed by the magnitude of this sight, consider something on the wilder side: there’s white water rafting, river boarding, bungee jumping, and so much more. Something wet, something dry, something crazy, all designed for the adventurous!
This afternoon, we’re going to take it really easy and enjoy a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi River, above the mighty Falls – something gentle, romantic even, in the midst of one of Africa’s most dramatic sights. You’ll love it, and so will your camera.
Day
