Day 1 & 2: Victoria Falls (Zim) ( 2 nights )
On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel in Victoria Falls by road where you will stay for your first two nights.
When you're there: Your hotel/ lodge is centrally located and well positioned to the rain forest and the mighty Victoria Falls as well as to town, so getting around is easy. A good thing since there's loads to do and much exploring to be done.
2 nights will give you 1 full day to enjoy 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 no shortage of things to do here.
Spend time exploring Victoria Falls and enjoying activities or relaxing. Victoria Falls Hotel offers an extraordinary high tea (this is an absolute must) and make sure you give yourself enough time to take in the incredible view of one of the seven wonders of the world.

Day 3 & 4: Chobe National Park ( 2 nights )
Enjoy the morning at leisure before you are transferred by road into Botswana and on to your lodge situated inside the Chobe National Park or just outside the park gates 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. From Kasane you'll head on further to your lodge whether just outside the park gates or inside the park. If you're staying at Chobe Game Lodge, this is one of the only lodges inside the park and comes with the advantage of allowing 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 which opens and closes at sunrise and sunset. Chobe Elephant Camp is just outside the Chobe National Park gate and offers twice daily game drives into the park as well as boat cruises and guided safaris walks.
When you're there: The Chobe safari experiences give you a chance to view the largest concentration of elephants, buffalo and other plains herds from up close.
*Your activities are included as planned and scheduled by the lodge guides to suit your itinerary. Relax and enjoy this slice of Africa, whether on a game drive, boat cruise or walking safari.

Day 5 & 6: Okavango Delta ( 2 nights )
Start the day with a morning game drive or early boat cruise (time permitting) and breakfast, after which you will be transferred by light aircraft to the Okavango Delta for the next two nights.
On the way: You're heading back to Kasane and on to Kasane Airport to fly into the Okavango Delta. Enjoy your flight over the African bush and magnificent meandering waterways. It's really quite remarkable to see from above. Watch as the landscape changes and you're introduced to the the incredible network of wetlands, 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 and general area is one that offers land-and-water based safari activities. A true experience of the Okavango Delta and the intricate channels that teem with wildlife. Game drives on the floodplains in open safari vehicles and boat cruises in the surrounding channels and lagoons make this an incredible delta experience.
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.
Pom Pom Camp
Day 7 & 8: Okavango Delta ( 2 nights )
Yes, you have another two nights in the delta, but staying in a different area means a different setting and a whole lot more wildlife and incredible sightings. Let's go.
On the way: Make your way by game-drive-transfer back to the airstrip and board your onward charter flight to your next camp in the Okavango Delta.
When you're there: Enjoy your lodge activities as included during your stay. A mokoro excursion at sunset is easily one of the most relaxing and incredible ways to enjoy the wetlands and the wildlife while gliding through the water. It's truly magical.
Another chance at prolific game viewing. You have a chance to see all that you've seen and more. With a change in landscape, expect a different experience and enjoy every minute of being on safari. It doesn't get much better than this. This is real and raw wilderness.
* All lodge activities are included with your lodge guide.
Day 9: Maun ( Departure / End of Tour )
Enjoy a last morning activity (if time allows) and breakfast before departing to the airstrip and on to your light aircraft transfer to Maun Airport, where this tour ends.
