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 Batonka Guest 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 today is Batonka Guest Lodge in Victoria Falls. It is situated 2 km from Victoria Falls Town, which means you can walk to the falls and the friendly staff will make any activity bookings for you.

Day 9: The Journey Ends

Road transfer from Batonka Gues Lodge to Victoria Falls International Airport.

Check out of Batonka Guest Lodge Lodge for a transfer to Victoria Falls International Airport and your onward connection. Should you wish to extend your stay in Victoria Falls by another day or two, we can arrange everything.

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!
