Itinerary

Days 1 – 2: An Okavango Experience

Arrive at Maun Airport & fly by shared air charter to Oddballs Enclave in the Okavango Delta. Enjoy 2 nights on a full-board basis.

A shared charter flight from Maun Airport brings you to one of the delta’s longest-standing camps – Oddballs Enclave. Overlooking the Moremi Game Reserve from its private concession, Oddballs offers a non-mechanised approach to discovering the delta, ensuring the only sounds at camp are those of birds and animals. Your personal guide leads walking and canoe safaris in beautiful landscapes rich in wildlife. Sightings range from elephants and giraffes to tiny frogs and sparkling kingfishers.

Days 3 – 4: The Secret Linyanti

Shared charter flight to the Linyanti wetlands bordering the Chobe National Park. Check in at Camp Linyanti for 2 nights on a full-board basis.

Flying from the Okavango Delta, you’ll soon notice another huge sprawl of wetlands – Linyanti. Once off-limits to tourism, this region of lagoons and floodplains is flanked by open woodland and is exceptionally rich in wildlife. Your guides will be on the lookout for the area ‘specials’ – wild dog and leopard – as well as pointing out an impressive cast of birds. Camp Linyanti provides the tented accommodation and the activities: you’ll enjoy 4X4 game drives as well as river excursions on the lodge’s specially adapted ‘Swamp Cruiser’.

Days 5 – 6: The Savuti Experience

Road transfer to the Savuti region of the Chobe National Park for 2 nights at Camp Savuti on a full-board basis.

The 4X4 transfer from Camp Linyanti to Camp Savuti goes through the Chobe National Park and can be considered a bonus game drive. Overlooking the flowing Savuti Channel, the camp may have further surprises in store: it’s not unusual to see elephants drinking from the river in front of camp as you settle into your suite. Savuti has an international reputation for game viewing: lions and hyenas battle for supremacy on the savannah; the summer zebra migration brings drama in black and white; wild dogs and cheetah chase down impala. Morning and afternoon game drives take you into the thick of things.

Days 7 – 8: The Smoke that Thunders

Fly by shared charter to Kasane Airport for a road transfer across the Zimbabwe border to Victoria Falls for 2 nights at Ilala Lodge on a bed & breakfast basis.

After a Savuti breakfast you fly via shared charter to Kasane Airport where a road transfer takes you across the Zimbabwe border to Victoria Falls. Your destination is one of the best small hotels in Victoria Falls – Ilala Lodge. Its central location means you can walk to the falls and the friendly staff will make any activity bookings for you.
