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.

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
