  • This safari begins at Maun International Airport in Botswana and ends at Victoria Falls International Airport in Zimbabwe. Day 01 & 02: Okavango Delta Upon arrival at Maun International Airport your dedicated guide for this adventure will be waiting to warmly welcome you and dis- cuss your interests and expectations for your safari. Once you have become acquainted with your guide, a light aircraft ight will take the entire group to PomPom Airstrip, where a safari vehi- cle will be waiting to drive you to a campsite in the Okavango Delta. DETAILED ITINERARY 5
  • A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands, the Okavango Delta is the worlds only inland delta. Crystal clear channels spread over the Kalahari Desert with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile oating islands. Elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness, while lion and leopard share the oodplains with giraffe and elephant. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, where iridescent dragonies, frogs of every colour and jewel-like kingshers live in the lush banks. Spend two nights at the private campsite in a private concession area bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, with a complement of camp staff to cater for your needs. Explore the crystal-clear channels, islands and waterways by mokoro (dug-out canoe) and enjoy game-viewing walks on the islands. Day 03 & 04: Khwai Concession - Moremi Wildlife Reserve A short ight in a light aircraft will take you to Khwai in the North Gate region of Moremi Wildlife Re- serve. Adjacent to the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, the only proclaimed wildlife area in the Okavango Delta, the Khwai concession delights with its diverse beauty, comprising a stunning landscape of forests, la- goons, oodplains and islands, with rich wildlife. Game viewing is excellent year-round and resident species include lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, wild dog, zebra, red lechwe and many more. Spend two nights camping on the concession, with extensive game drives taking up your days. Day 05 & 06: Chobe National Park Savute A long game drive (5 6 hours) takes you to the Savute region of Chobe National Park, where you will spend two nights camping in this haunting and magnicent landscape. Renowned for lion and other predator viewing, the landscape around Savute is starkly beautiful. Mo- pane forest gives way to acacia savanna with rocky outcrops. The mysterious Savute Channel, which dries up periodically, has recently begun to ow for the rst time in more than two decades and has proved an irresistible attraction for a high concentration of wildlife. Day 07 & 08: Chobe National Park From Savute, move up to northern Chobe (4 5 hours overland game drive), where you will camp for two nights. 6
  • This is the heart of elephant country and you may spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the Chobe River on game drives or private boat cruises. Northern Chobe is renowned for its large variety of bird and animal life, beautiful scenery and magnicent sunsets. Day 09: Victoria Falls You will be driven from Chobe National Park to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, where you will meet your representative for the last few days of your adventure, who will escort you to The Elephant Camp and on your Victoria Falls activities. One of the worlds greatest natural spectacles, Victoria Falls is the stuff of legends, romance and myth. Long before the Scottish missionary and explorer, Dr David Livingstone discovered the Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, the smoke that thunders. Living- stone named them for his queen. Today, the village rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of Af- rica, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting. Your representative will accompany you on a breathtaking tour of the Falls (entrance fee to the Falls is included in the safari fare). At The Elephant Camp, their dedicated team will take over from your guide and will enthrall you with up-close and personal interactions with wildlife in particular, the ele- phants at the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary. Day 10: Departure After a scrumptious breakfast at The Elephant Camp, you will be taken to Victoria Falls International Airport by road, where your adventure with us will end. 7
