Safari Itinerary
Day 1 - 2

Victoria Falls

This adventure begins at Victoria Falls Airport, in Zimbabwe and ends at Maun Airport in Botswana. Upon your arrival at Victoria Falls Airport you will be met by a member of the team who will drive you to the Matetsi River Lodge.

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles. Declared a World Heritage Site, the Falls are 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’. Today, the village rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting.

Spend two nights at Matetsi River Lodge. Accommodation is in a spacious suite with private deck, plunge pool and a magnificent view of the Zambezi River. Your stay includes three meals daily, refreshments on game drives, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry, day lodge activities and park fees.

Adventures include twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, daily nature walks on the reserve (led by professional rangers), exciting spotlit night drives, morning and afternoon riverboat cruises, guided canoe excursions along the Zambezi River and fishing. At the Victoria Falls, you can enjoy various adventures such as a helicopter flight over the Falls, bungee jumping, white water rafting and scenic tours of Victoria Falls and surrounding areas - these adventures are at an additional cost.

Insider’s tips:

  • Grab a Zambezi Larger and a fishing rod and have a ranger to take you on to the Zambezi River for an exhilarating session of tiger fishing - nothing can beat fishing with a cold Zambezi.
  • Enjoy a private poolside lunch - put your platter on the edge of the pool and laze the afternoon away, whilst savouring the mouth-watering delights the chefs have prepared for you.
Day 3 - 4

Chobe National Park

Today you’ll be driven to Kasane Airport where you will hop aboard a light aircraft for your flight to the Selinda Airstrip.

The Selinda Reserve is a 320 000 acre private wildlife sanctuary in northern Botswana. The famous Selinda Spillway, which links the Okavango Delta in the west to the Linyanti and Kwando wetlands and rivers in the east, meanders through the area. This exceptional river can flow in both directions, depending on where water levels are highest. The abundant wildlife is attracted to the vast floodplains and grasslands along the river, with large numbers of elephant and vast herds of buffalo congregating around the Zibadianja Lagoon in the dry winters. Predator viewing is also exceptional, including lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.

Spend two nights at Zarafa Camp. Accommodation is in a luxuriously appointed, marquis-style canvas tent with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Each tent boasts a private deck and plunge pool, overlooking a palm fringed floodplain. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, laundry and daily lodge activities.

Adventures include twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles as well as short nature walks from camp. Game viewing can also be done from the comfort of your own room, as wildlife frequents the floodplains in front of the lodge.

Day 5 - 6

Okavango Delta

Today, after a delicious breakfast, you will be flown by light aircraft to Xudum Airstrip.

A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife, the Okavango Delta likes like a sparkling jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Known as “the river that never finds the sea”, crystal clear channels spread over the thirstlands of the Kalahari with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands. Adapted for a life in and out of the water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness. Lion, leopard, cheetah and African wild dog, share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Hippos inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, while honey badgers can be seen in broad daylight. Tall termite mounts are homes for families of dwarf and banded mongoose. Experience the delicate details of the glistening waterways on a mokoro ride, where iridescent dragonflies, frogs of every colour and jewel-like kingfishers live in the papyrus-lined banks.

Option 1: Spend two nights at Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge. Accommodation is in a playfully crafted safari suite, in handsome tones of chocolate and ebony, feature a large bathtub and romantic al fresco showers. Each suite boasts a lofty hide out with magnificent views. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry, day lodge activities and park fees.

Adventures include an irresistible combination of water and wildlife on twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, boating and mokoro (dugout canoe) adventures in the Delta and guided walks. A scenic helicopter flight and transfers are available at an additional cost.

Insider’s tips:

  • Ask you ranger to give you a wake-up call 45 minutes before the sun has risen, take a cup of delicious tea or coffee and sit quietly on your roof top Sala as you listen to the sounds of the night turn to day in the Delta.
  • Get yourself into the interactive kitchen with the chefs and choose a dish of your choice to learn and create.

Option 2: Spend two nights at Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp. Accommodation is in a sleek en-suite safari tent, which boasts a romantic Sala that offers breathtaking views over the channel. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry, day lodge activities and park fees.

Adventures include a combination of water and wildlife on twice-daily game drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles, guided walks, spotlit night game drives, boating and mokoro (dugout canoe) adventures in the Delta, guided walks and excellent bird watching. A scenic helicopter flight and transfers are available at an additional cost.

Insider’s tips:

  • Ask your ranger to take you swimming (or even snorkeling) in the Delta - there are numerous quiet spots where the hippos and crocs will leave you to cool off in peace.
  • Go on a full day mekoro trip - Have an early breakfast at the lodge and enjoy a delicious lunch on a quiet island in the Delta. At the end of an exhilarating day you will head back to the lodge for romantic sundowners in your Sala.
Day 7 - 9

Makgadikgadi Pans

After a scrumptious breakfast you will be flown by light aircraft to Jack’s Camp.

The Makgadikgadi Pans span 16 000km² and are the largest salt pans in the world. It is a totally mind-blowing sight to see thousands of kilometers of absolutely nothing but overpowering whiteness. The Makgadikgadi Pans are the remnant of an ancient lake and in between the pans are sandy desert and occasional vegetation. Only quad bikes are allowed onto the sensitive pans. It is amazing to see one of Africa's biggest zebra populations in this vista of white sand and salt. When rains fall during the wet season, the pans are filled with water and attract large flocks of flamingos as well as big herds of zebra, springbok and wildebeest, followed closely by predators, making for fantastic game viewing.

Spend three nights at Jack’s Camp. Accommodation is in a stylish canvas tent with en-suite bathroom, indoor and al fresco shower. Your stay is on a full board basis including activities and park fees.

Adventures include game drives and bird walks. Quad bike expeditions onto the Salt Pans, night drives and game walks with a San (Bushman) tracker adds to guest delight. Also, enjoy a visit to the historical Baobabs and remote area dwellings, which will allow you to gain insight into local tribal tradition and culture.

Insider’s tips:

  • Enjoy an elegant dinner in the mess tent - which has become a national museum of Botswana.
  • See the desert through the eyes of a meerkat as you get up-close-and-personal with these playful little creatures on the camp’s excellent meerkat adventure.
  • Visit a remote cattle-post to learn about the traditional culture of the Batswana people.
  • Indulge at tea time on the triple-layer banana caramel cake, tangy lemon curd biscuits and mouth-watering brownies - pure bliss!
