DEPARTURE POINT IS MAUN AIRPORT. Guests are required to be at the arrivals area by 13h00 on day 1.

Day 01:
Upon arrival in Maun, you will be met by our representative who will assist in  the transfer to a shared light aircraft for an exciting flight to Xakanaxa (pronounced ka-ka-ni-ka), which is an integral part of the eastern waters of the Okavango Delta. Your guide will meet you at the airstrip and transfer you to our private camp. The area is encompassed by Moremi Game Reserve and boasts some of the best Game viewing in Africa. The Game Reserve has areas of dry lands rising between vast wetlands, crystal clear water channels on the edges of Mopane and Apple-Leaf woodlands. Game viewing takes place alongside waterways and floodplains. Species such as Giraffe, Zebra and Wildebeest are but a few that occur here, along with an astonishing variety of birds. Overnight in the Xakanaxa area of Moremi Game Reserve.:D: Non-Participation Camping).

*Please ensure that an optional drinks order has been placed with us at the time of booking.

Day 02:
Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve. We make our way to the banks of the Okavango River along Game-drive routes in the early morning. Today we explore the clear channels, lagoons and rivers of the Okavango Delta by motor boat, going upstream through a myriad of waterways lined with African Mangosteen and Water Berry Trees, as well as swaying seas of papyrus. We follow the Okavango River through the Lagoons of Xaxanaxa and Gadikwe, deep into the permanent waters of this unique inland delta. After a picnic lunch, we make our way back downstream to the mainland for the short evening drive and dinner. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 03:
Khwai River, North gate, Moremi Game Reserve. Our staff breaks camp and we take a leisurely drive to our private campsite in the Khwai River area of Moremi Game Reserve. This region’s diversity of game is astounding and Moremi has quite rightly been rated as one of the best Game viewing areas in the world. Afternoon Game drive and overnight camping in Moremi Game Reserve. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 04:
Khwai River North gate, Moremi Game Reserve. Today is spent on early morning and afternoon game drives. Your guide will generally spend maximum time on game-drives, depending on what is seen, trying to cover as much area as possible. The result of this is guests are given the best chances of seeing a variety of Wildlife - although there is of course, that obligatory siesta during the hottest part of the day. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 05:
Savuti, Chobe National Park. We leave Moremi, crossing the Khwai Bridge to the northern bank of Khwai River. There is, on occasion, a quick opportunity to buy more drinks in the small village, before making our way to Chobe National Park. Due to the fact that none of Botswana’s Wildlife areas are fenced, Game can move freely between these two wilderness areas. Hippo, Elephant and sometimes Lion are often found on this route. Moving through the Mababe depression, we relocate to Savuti. Game viewing this afternoon takes place along the fringes of the marsh and surrounding water holes. The area is best known for large populations of Bull Elephants and Prides of Lion that patrol the banks of this enigmatic channel. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 06:
Savuti, Chobe National Park. Again we have the opportunity to spend many hours on morning and afternoon Game drives, as well as an opportunity to climb one of the 5 hills to see San Bushman paintings, an indication that this area has always drawn those who have an affinity to the wilderness. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 07:
Serondella area, Chobe National Park. We journey north toward the Chobe River, the Second biggest river in Southern Africa (Zambezi in the largest). Chobe River is home the world’s largest Elephant herds; large numbers of big game such as Buffalo, Hippo and Lion can be seen here. Our private campsite is on a Teak forested dune that overlooks this beautiful river. Game drives are taken in the afternoons and mornings to find the remarkable variety of species that are drawn to this permanent water source. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 08:
Serondella area, Chobe National Park. After an early start, we take a slow drive along the Southern bank of the Chobe River, where we can find Chobe Bushbuck and Puku Antelope, which are found only in this part of Botswana. In the afternoon, guests might choose to go on an optional afternoon Boat Cruise along the Chobe River-perhaps the last river where one has a fair chance of seeing Lion and Elephant, Leopard or Wild Dog from the unique viewpoint of a boat. (B, L, D: Non-Participation Camping).

Day 09:
We have a leisurely start this last camping morning and say fond farewells to our resourceful back-up and camp staff. We head eastwards for the short drive to Kazungula Border Post, where your guide will ensure that your transfer back to Livingstone is seamless. This afternoon is spent exploring one or the truly magnificent sights on earth - the wonderfully beautiful Victoria Falls-300 feet high and over a mile wide! Witness the power of Nature as an average of 550000 tons of water thunders into the Zambezi Gorge every minute. Afternoon at leisure for optional activities (guests own expense). Overnight is usually at the Zambezi Waterfront. Please note that entrance to Victoria Falls is not included in tour. (B: Lodge).

Day 10:
Victoria Falls, Livingstone-Zambia. After breakfast the Safari arrangements end. Before proceeding with onward arrangements, guests might want to partake in the numerous optional activities that are available in this adventure capital! (B).
