Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Livingstone (Zambia) to Chobe National Park (Botswana)
A morning departure takes you from Livingstone, Zambia and into Botswana. We’ll cross the Zambezi River by ferry and make our way to Toro Camp on the Chobe River. Once we’ve reached the Lodge we’ll set up camp and enjoy the rest of the afternoon on a sunset cruise on the Chobe River. Here we can watch elephants, hippos, crocodiles and a variety of birds and more without having to reach for our binoculars – You’ll be close enough for close-up photographs. [LD]

Day 2: Chobe National Park (Botswana) to Makgadikgadi Pans (Botswana)
We need to get up early, as today is our longest drive of the safari. We’ll head south to Planet Baobab and stop at the Magkadigkadi Pans to have a closer look. If the conditions allow we’ll take a drive onto the Pans. After appreciating the wide-open, uninhabited spaces under the endless canopy of blue sky, we step off for our final stop of the day, Planet Baobab. The rest of the afternoon we spend with a hike to the elephant hole and relaxing at Planet Baobab’s facilities. [BLD]

Day 3: Makgadikgadi Pans (Botswana) to Maun (Botswana)
After breakfast we head out for a Bush Walk with our local guide, learning about the history, flora and fauna of the area and use of various plants in traditional life. We then head off for Maun and onto a private concession and Mankwe lodge. Once we’ve set up camp – we go on a night game drive in the concession. This area lies between Moremi and Chobe and we’ll have the opportunity to spot a variety of nocturnal animals. [BLD]

Day 4: Maun (Botswana) to Khwai River (Botswana)
Today we spend a full day in the bush on a game drive. Departing after breakfast we take our 4x4 and drive through the wilderness area of the Khwai region spotting a variety of game that frequent this region that borders Moremi and Chobe. Picnic-lunch will be in the wilderness area. With some luck we’ll see many animal species that are at home in this area and maybe even a few members of the Big Five. [BLD]

Day 5: Khwai River (Botswana) to Moremi Game Reserve (Botswana)
After having explored the Khwai area we now head into the famous Moremi game reserve known as one of the most beautiful and varied reserves in Africa with an unprecedented concentration of wildlife. The full day is spent in the unspoiled nature of the Moremi Game Reserve. [BLD]

Day 7: Maun (Botswana) to Okavango Delta (Botswana)
Early in the morning we leave Maun and drive to the Western Delta and onto Etsha 13. From here we head into the largest inland delta in the world, another highlight of Botswana, the Okavango Delta. We will be transferred to our Camp in the Delta where we’ll spend the next two nights listening to the sounds of the wilderness. Unlike other Delta’s in the world, it flows into the Kalahari Desert without reaching the coast, which makes it unique. We’ll float in Mokoros through the thick vegetation of the Delta discovering a variety of birds and wildlife and will stop at a secluded island to take a 1½ hour guided walk hoping to spot elephants, waterbuck or other animals living in this water filled paradise. [BLD]
