Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 and 2: Victoria Falls

Upon arrival into Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred by road to Victoria Falls River Lodge, where you will stay for two nights.

Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park; the luxury tented lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, just minutes from the Victoria Falls.

Accommodation: Victoria Falls River Lodge

Day 3, 4 and 5: Linyanti, Okavango Delta

After the morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred by road from Victoria Falls River Lodge to Kasane Airport for onward air transfer to Selinda Camp, where you will stay for three nights.

Selinda camp is an intimate camp offering understated luxury on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway - a waterway that links Botswana's Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando marshes, rivers and floodplains. The shaded camp is raised a metre or so off the ground and offers extraordinary views over the floodplains, waterways and wide-open savannas which are only broken by attractive palm islands. It is these views that are one of Selinda's most compelling features.

Accommodation: Selinda Camp

Day 6, 7 and 8: Okavango Delta

Following the morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred by helicopter to Duba Plains, where you will stay for three nights.

Duba Plains is an intimate camp in one of the most remote locations in the Okavango. It is situated on an island in the 30,000 ha Kwedi concession area, north of the Moremi in the Okavango Delta. The camp is surrounded by expansive seasonally flooded plains and shaded by tall ebony, fig and mangosteen trees.

Accommodation: Duba Plains

Day 9 and 10: Makgadikgadi Pans National Park

Following the morning activity (time permitting) you will be transferred by light aircraft from Duba Plains to San Camp where you will stay for two nights.

San Camp is situated on the edge of the vast Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. These spectacular pans are one of the most important wetland sites remaining in Africa. This traditional camp has a romantic essence complemented by the desolate beauty of the pans.

Accommodation: San Camp

Day 11: Maun

After breakfast you will be transferred by light aircraft to Maun Airport for your onward travel arrangements.

“Thanks for all your work putting together a holiday we truly loved”

We would like to commend the high service received from Namibian Tours and Safaris especially taking into account the short length of time you had to arrange this holiday for us. The recommendations and itinerary were ideal with the majority of our stay in each location being the right duration. The whole process of booking this holiday was hassle free and we would not hesitate in recommending your services to others.

We would specifically like to thank you, Alison, for all of your hard work which resulted in a truly fabulous holiday for us. Also, it was great to meet up with you in Solitaire where you expressed so much love for your country and this was clearly mirrored in the schedule and service you presented to us allowing us to experience this fantastic country. It will not be the case of 'if' we return to Namibia, it is more the case of 'when' we will return as we enjoyed it so much.

“Edward did a super job”

A special mention for Edward he did a super job – vouchers and maps were with our car hire agency at the airport – book presentation of whole trip was clear, easy to follow and complete. He even gave us his mobile No in case we encounter some problems. Really to recommend as Tour Operator and will use them again next time.

Road – all went well and thanks to have recommended a 4Wheel Drive Car – due to rough road conditions we appreciated – you could do it with a normal car and met tourists with B type cars but they took much longer for the journeys – had more issues with flat tyres and most admitted next time they will take a 4Wheel Drive Car.

Would like to thank you for all your time spent and hard work to find best places, difficult tasks due to budget restrictions. I will recommend you and your agency whenever I can – actually already did in Joburg – hope brings you some new customers - and of course will come to you for my next trip this time to South Africa hopefully in 2012.

“Thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us”

Dear Wilmari,
Back home and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us. I was especially pleased that for the accommodation with dinner all knew about my allergies and cooked accordingly. The Cheetah experience made my daughter very happy and they were so kind to not even charge me for taking pictures.

Highlight of our trip was the stay in Onguma The Fort and we are determined to return one day.

As pointed out before, the Namib Desert Lodge I cannot recommend to anybody (fined for driving on their property and below average dinner buffet) and also the Olivia Guesthouse was a letdown when it came to the food (lunch and breakfast).

I have posted some pictures on Flickr, maybe you want to have a look and I'm always happy to read comments.

Last but not least: Could you please send us the itinerary you prepared for us and we received at arrival electronically? Some of my friends are interested to book the same trip with you.
