Itinerary

Days 1 – 2: Beautiful, private Kalahari location

Arrive at Botswana’s Maun Airport & enjoy assistance onto a shared charter flight to the Central Kalahari. Check in at Deception Valley Lodge for 2 nights on a full board basis.

Set in a private concession, the lodge offers the best of both worlds: game drives in the reserve itself plus night drives in the concession. Rare and unusual animals are seen with the aid of a spotlight and this, together with the chance to interact with San Bushman on guided walks, delivers a comprehensive Kalahari safari. Choose the timing of your visit carefully: the dry season promises excellent waterhole-based game viewing but it’s in the green summer months that the Kalahari comes alive.

Days 3 – 4: An Okavango Island

Fly by shared charter from the Kalahari to the Okavango Delta & Delta Camp where you’ll check in for 2 nights on a full board basis.

A private island location gives Delta Camp the opportunity to offer water-based safaris all year round, and subsequently this small and intimate tented camp specialises in game viewing by mokoro (traditional canoe) and on foot. Activities take part in the next-door Moremi Game Reserve which means excellent wildlife viewing as well as exciting animal-tracking adventures with your born-and-bred local guide. Complete with romantic delta views from its balcony, each chalet at Delta Camp is en suite with solar-powered electric lighting.

Days 5 – 6: Moremi Magic

Fly across the Okavango Delta to the Khwai airstrip where you’ll be met & driven to Sable Alley for 2 nights on a full board basis.

Overlooking a lily-covered lagoon, Sable Alley sits in the Khwai Concession, a famously game-rich region adjoining the Moremi Game Reserve. It is here that the last of the Okavango’s waterways peter out into the sand, and consequently the area attracts much wildlife, especially in the dry season. Elephants, buffalo and hippo are among the heavyweights, and Khwai has a reputation for predators too – lion, leopard and spotted hyena are resident with wild dog packs often moving through the region. Sable Alley offers accommodation in raised tented and timber suites with private bathrooms and fabulous views of Moremi and its wildlife.

Day 7: A Night under the Stars

Drive from Sable Alley to a Sky Bed, set away from camp, for 1 unforgettable night on a full board basis.

You enjoy another morning and afternoon game drive today but your evening will be a unique one: lying in open woodland well away from camp are Sable Alley’s Star Beds, sitting five metres / 15 feet above the ground and overlooking a well-frequented waterhole. Each Star Bed has a private bathroom on the lower floor and a bedroom on the uncovered upper deck, complete with grandstand views over the waterhole and unfettered views of the cosmos. Watching over the camp, your Sable Alley guide is on hand to provide meals, enjoyed in a simple dining area with a campfire.

Days 8 – 9: Super Savuti

Fly to the Chobe National Park & Ghoha Hills Lodge, set in the Chobe’s legendary Savuti region. Enjoy 2 nights on a full board basis.

A region often overlooked on shorter safaris, Savuti is the destination of choice for safari aficionados. Located in the centre of Chobe National Park and fed by a now-permanent river, the region is home to large concentrations of elephant and big predators, especially lion and spotted hyena, locked into an eternal battle for supremacy over the Savuti grasslands. The flat landscape is broken only by the Ghoha Hills, the setting for your accommodation and rewarding you with the best views of any lodge in the area. You’ll explore during morning and afternoon game drives and have the chance to visit a rock art site and catch up with news via the lodge’s complimentary Wi-Fi.

Days 10 – 11: Chobe River Views

Drive overland to the Chobe River & Ngoma Safari Lodge, located on an escarpment overlooking the river & its floodplains. Check in for 2 nights on a full board basis.

It is a morning’s drive to Ngoma Safari Lodge but you’ll sit down to a late lunch overlooking the Chobe River and can plan your full day safari for the next day. Chobe is prime elephant country, and your morning and afternoon game drives are augmented by walking safaris or a spot-lit night drive after dinner, an excellent chance to spot rarely seen and unusual creatures such as porcupines and eagle-owls. Complete with Chobe River views, each of the 8 chalets at Ngoma Lodge has a small patio area with a table and deckchairs plus a private plunge pool.

Days 12 – 13: A Victoria Falls Finale

Drive overland to Zimbabwe & Victoria Falls where you check in at centrally-located Ilala Lodge for 2 nights on a BB basis.

An early start after breakfast gets you across the border and into Zimbabwe in time for lunch at Victoria Falls. Your destination is ever-popular Ilala Lodge, a friendly and long-serving hotel located at the heart of the town of Victoria Falls. This puts you within walking distance of the world wonder as well as within strolling distance of markets, restaurants and shops. With a full day on hand you have time to arrange a Victoria Falls activity or two – besides a tour of the falls themselves, other top activities include bungee jumping, scenic flights, elephant-back safaris and white-water rafting.

Day 14: The Journey Ends

Transfer by road from Ilala Lodge to Victoria Falls International Airport & your onward travel arrangements.

After breakfast and goodbyes at Ilala Lodge you will be transferred back to the airport for the end of this safari and the commencement of your further travel arrangements.

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.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

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!!!

Lukas (Germany)
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!

Roger (UK)

Lorraine (UK)
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!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
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)
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 made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!
