Days 1 – 2: A Kalahari River
Lying between Botswana’s Kalahari and savannah regions, the Boteti River is an important source of water for desert animals such as springbok and gemsbok as well as those of the northern grasslands like wildebeest and – in summer – large herds of migrating zebra. The lodge’s name means ‘Teeth of the Crocodile”, testament to the number of crocs lining the riverbank. Game drives and walks with local guides take place in a concession area; longer adventures to the Makgadikgadi Pans are also on offer. Accommodation takes the form of timber and canvas suites with broad views over the river, often giving guests excellent game sightings from the comfort of their day bed.
Days 3 – 4: Kalahari under Canvas
The flat, white Makgadikgadi Pans are surrounded by grasslands – golden in winter and green in summer. Camp Kalahari lies in a private concession bordering the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and offers a set of activities designed to deliver a comprehensive Kalahari safari experience. You can go on game drives in an area famous for its predators – especially lion and cheetah – as well as more endearing creatures such as meerkats and springhares. It’s a perfectly-placed camp for the summer zebra migration and epic bird watching while during the dry winter you can enjoy quad-biking adventures on the pans.
Days 5 – 6: Moremi Magic
Flying north from the Kalahari you pass over a stunning landscape of shimmering wetlands and silver rivers – the Okavango Delta. It’s the world’s largest inland river delta and home to huge numbers of animals and birds. Sable Alley lies in the Khwai area of the Okavango, a famously game-rich enclave next to the Moremi Game Reserve and a mesmerising mix of water and land habitats. You explore by 4X4, searching for Khwai’s signature predators – leopard, lion and wild dog – while back at camp you can enjoy lagoon views from the privacy of your tented suite.
Days 7 – 8: Superlative Savuti
Set at the heart of Chobe, Savuti has long been a destination of choice for wildlife film-makers and safari aficionados. Nourished by the now-flowing Savuti Channel, this region of grassland and woodland is home to elephants, big cats, spotted hyena packs and summer herds of migrating buffalo and zebra. Breaking the flat landscape are the enigmatic Ghoha Hills, on top of which your accommodation sits, offering without question the best views in Savuti as well as complimentary Wi-Fi. Guides lead morning and afternoon game drives and you have the chance to visit a rock art site too.
Days 9 – 10: The Smoke that Thunders
A flight to the Chobe River and a road transfer across the border into Zimbabwe take you to the only tented safari camp on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls. With views of the rising spray in the distance, The Elephant Camp keeps the authentic safari experience of this tour and treats you to views of its resident herd of elephants at the in-house waterhole. There is plenty of time to plan a visit to thundering Victoria Falls as well as fitting in an activity or two such as a scenic flight, elephant interaction experience or a bit of souvenir shopping in town.
Day 11: The Journey Ends
After breakfast and a last look at the Zambezi landscape or perhaps even a visit to the local elephant sanctuary, you have a road transfer back to Victoria Falls Airport for the end of the tour and your onward flight.
