Day 1 & 2: Victoria Falls (Zim) ( 2 nights )

When you're there: Victoria Falls Hotel is set in the Victoria Falls National Park with a private pathway to view the Falls. Offering some of the best views overlooking the famous Victoria Falls bridge, it is characterized by its colonial feel and old school charm to make it one of the most popular luxury accommodations in Africa.

2 nights will give you 1 full day to explore the cultural town of Victoria Falls and any of the many activities on offer, whether enjoying a helicopter flight over the Falls, a sunset river cruise on the Zambezi or an adrenaline activity such as white water rafting or an array of high wire activities. There's plenty to do.

Spend time exploring Victoria Falls and enjoying activities or relaxing at your hotel with high tea (this is an absolute must) and taking in the incredible view of one of the seven wonders of the world.

Day 3 & 4: Chobe National Park ( 2 nights )

A relaxed morning at leisure and to enjoy breakfast before you will be met and transferred by road into Botswana and on to Chobe Game Lodge situated in the Chobe National Park for the next two nights.

On the way: Today you will transfer across the border from Zimbabwe to Botswana. This in itself is a beautiful drive and an experience which your transfer driver will assist you with. Once in Kasane, you will be met by your guide from Chobe Game Lodge and they will transfer you further. Being the only permanent lodge situated inside the Chobe National Park, this lodge is not only one of the most up-market, luxury properties, but the only one that comes with the advantage of already being inside the park. This allows guests to be the first and last people to experience wildlife in Chobe National Park on game drives and boat cruises and means no queuing to enter and exit the park when the gates open and close daily at sunrise and sunset.

When you're there: Safari experiences give you a chance to view the largest concentration of elephants, buffalo and other plains herds from up close. Even better, as your activities are conducted in electric vehicles and boats. All you can hear is nature.

*Your activities are included as planned and scheduled by the lodge guides (an all female staff which makes this place even more special) to suit your itinerary. Relax and enjoy this slice of Africa, whether on a game drive, boat cruise or walking safari.

Day 5 & 6: Savuti ( 2 nights )

Spend the morning on an activity with your guide (if time allows). Then it's time for breakfast before you will be transferred to Kasane Airport to meet your pilot for your onward internal flight to Savute Safari Lodge, where they will stay for two nights.

On the way: Enjoy the transfer out of the park, it is still a game drive after all. You might just spot something you have't seen yet. Then it's a meet and greet at the airport with your pilot and a short briefing before loading your luggage and taking to the skies. Flying over the bush and open plains, brings new perspective of the wilderness and the extent of it. Safari from the sky, you can often spot ellies from above. Look out for waterholes, that's where they're often found.

When you're there: Savute Safari Lodge is a permanent lodge overlooking the Savuti Channel situated in the western part of the Chobe National Park. This area is renowned for some of the best wildlife sightings and game viewing opportunities year round, especially when the Savuti Channel is mostly dry and the little water on offer in the area draws the numerous concentrations of plains game and predators towards the marsh.

Expect to see impressive numbers of antelopes, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo and elephants as well as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog and many of the smaller predators.

Safari activities here are focused on game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles along the Savuti Channel and to the Savuti Marsh. Enjoy excellent birding and game viewing. Visit Gubatsa Hills to view the ancient San rock paintings.

*Your activities are included in your stay which is booked on a fully inclusive basis.

Day 7 & 8: Okavango Delta ( 2 nights )

Start the day with a morning game drive (time permitting) and breakfast, after which you will be transferred to Camp Moremi for the next two nights by light aircraft transfer.

On the way: It's another game drive to the airstrip this morning and then another flight over the African bush. This time the landscape changes and you're introduced to the the incredible network of waterways from above and suddenly it is clear that this is one of the most remote wilderness destinations in the world.

When you're there: The Moremi Game Reserve is an area that offers land-and-water based safari activities. A true experience of the Okavango Delta and the meandering channels that teem with wildlife. Game drives on the floodplains in open safari vehicles and boat cruises in the surrounding channels of the Xakanaxa Lagoon.

A chance to view predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and wild dogs. An abundance of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and antelope in large numbers including red lechwe. Birding is fantastic, hosting hundreds of species and even a chance to glimpse the Fish Eagle or Pel's Fishing Owl.

* All lodge activities are included in your stay with your lodge guide.
