Itinerary

Day 1 - 3: Moremi Game Reserve

Today you will fly from Maun to the beautiful Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana. Moremi Game Reserve sits within the Okavango Delta - one of the world's most famous safari destinations - for very good reason. The Big 5 is often spotted throughout the reserve as well as the famous wild dog, an incredible array of antelope and range of big cats. This selection of wildlife against the incredible backdrop of the waterways, forests and plains of Moremi Game Reserve is a bucket list trip for anyone that has the great fortune of visiting.

Your lodge for your stay is the elegant Khwai Leadwood camp. This beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time.

Khwai’s biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the plentiful and extraordinary wildlife – you’ll never be bored here! Adventure and relaxation are on offer as guests live out their ultimate safari experience – from setting off on a morning walking safari to enjoying a gin and tonic overlooking the Khwai River.

Activities during your stay here:

- Open vehicle morning & evening game drives

- Guided bush walks

- Bird watching

- Cultural tours

- Mokoro (dugout canoe) safaris (dependent on water levels).

Accommodation: Khwai Leadwood

Day 4 - 6: An Authentic Safari Experience in the Chobe Enclave

Enjoy a scenic flight transfer to Kasane with a road transfer to the Chobe Enclave, a private concession on the border of Botswana's iconic Chobe National Park. This area provides a remote and high quality safari experience along the scenic Linyanti River, with guest accommodation in a handful of earthy camps and offering a wide range of wet and dry safari activities.

Your lodge for the next 3 nights is Linyanti Bush Camp, situated in the Chobe Enclave. The Chobe Enclave teems with wildlife and is best known for its large herds of elephants and buffalo. Linyanti Bush Camp sits on the banks of the Linyanti Wetlands – a significant area that is one of the primary sources of water during the drier months. Look forward to exceptional and diverse wildlife encounters year-round.

Activities during your stay here:

- Game drives

- Walking safaris

- Game viewing from hides

- Bird watching

- Guided mokoro safaris when water levels permit.

Accommodation: Linyanti Bush Camp

Day 7 - 9: Victoria Falls

No trip to this part of Africa would be complete without a stay at one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Consider your bucket list upgraded with a visit to the famous Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls offers visitors not just the chance to marvel at this incredibly powerful and awe inspiring natural wonder but also to enjoy the many activities that are available around the Victoria Falls. From the thrill seekers' bunjee jumping to the romantic sunset cruises - there's something for everyone at Victoria Falls.

Your stay in Victoria Falls is to be nothing short of magical. Thorntree River Lodge is one of our most raved about lodges due to its beautiful design, incredible location and magic service. One of the great benefits of Thorntree is how close it is to the Victoria Falls, but that means you'll have to tear yourself from the incredible lodge first.

Activities during your stay here:

- Rhino trekking

- Game drives in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park

- Cultural visits

- Sunset river cruises

- Fishing

- Canoeing

Accommodation: Thorntree River Lodge

Day 10: Depart

Today you bid farewell to Zambia as you transfer to the Airport to catch your flight back home. You may leave with a heavy heart but the experiences you have had in Africa stay etched in your memories for a lifetime.
