Itinerary

Days 1 – 2: The Delta Panhandle

After arriving at Botswana’s Maun Airport you’ll fly by shared charter to Kadizora Camp in the Okavango Delta. Enjoy 2 nights on a full board basis.

From Maun Airport you will fly by shared charter to the northern Okavango Delta. Your destination is Kadizora Camp, set under trees and overlooking grassy floodplains dotted with grazing antelope. Your tented chalet comes complete with lounge, en suite bathroom and viewing deck. Like most delta camps, Kadizora offers 4X4 game drives, boating and canoe safaris but between April and September, guests can also enjoy a unique experience: a hot air balloon flight over the Okavango Delta.

Days 3 – 5: Moremi Magic

Fly by shared charter to Machaba Camp in the Moremi Game Reserve for 3 nights on a full board basis.

A short flight takes you east and to Machaba Camp, lying on the fringes of the Okavango Delta. Here the density and diversity of wildlife is very high and Machaba naturally focuses on game drives. Newly built to high environmental standards, the camp’s location in an exclusive-use concession means guides are permitted to conduct night drives and walks too, adding to the experience. With 3 nights here, you’re assured of rewarding game viewing; the area is famous for its predators – including leopard and wild dog – while elephant and buffalo are often seen on the floodplains in front of camp.

Days 6 – 8: Hill-top Views

Fly by shared charter to the Savuti region of the Chobe National Park. Enjoy 3 nights at Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge on a full board basis.

Flying from the Okavango Delta, it’s not long before a vast swathe of grassland comes into view: Savuti. The wild heart of the Chobe National Park, Savuti is famous for the quality of its game viewing as well as its dramatic nature. Enormous bull elephants may stand in the shade of your vehicle on a hot day; lions and hyenas may fill the night with the sounds of their battles. Your accommodation is Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge, sitting in grand isolation on one of the handful of hills scattered around this otherwise flat landscape. Guides lead morning and afternoon game drives but will also take you to see San Bushman rock art tucked away in the hills.

Days 9 – 10: To the Zambezi River

Fly by shared charter to Kasane Airport & then sit back on a road transfer across the border into Zambia. Check in at The Royal Livingstone Hotel, just upstream from Victoria Falls, for 2 nights.

A short flight to Kasane Airport is followed by a road transfer to the border with Zambia. You’ll be assisted with the crossing and then driven to The Royal Livingstone Hotel, set close enough to Victoria Falls for you to sip a cocktail as the mist from the falls floats about you. A deservedly popular hotel, The Royal Livingstone is within walking distance of the main viewing points and offers its guests an extensive list of facilities. There is a spa, beauty salon, pool and 2 gyms as well as private butlers and a concierge service.

Day 11: The journey ends

Road transfer from The Royal Livingstone Hotel to Livingstone Airport.

After breakfast you’ll be transferred to Livingstone Airport for your onward connection. If however you would like a day or two more in Victoria Falls, we can arrange it all.
