DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

Day 1: Victoria Falls

An airport arrival transfer is included. Please provide your flight details when booking or at least 15 days before travel. On arrival in Victoria Falls, you will be met by a Wild Horizons representative and transferred to your hotel. Located about 3 km from the town center, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is set high on a plateau and enjoys uninterrupted views of the African bush and an on-site waterhole. Lodge facilities include a shuttle service to the town center, swimming pool, sundeck, complimentary Wi-Fi, gift shop, bar, and restaurant. All rooms have an ensuite, safes, air-conditioning, fans, mosquito nets, tea, coffee-making facilities, and a balcony overlooking National Park. Your representative will give you a short briefing explaining the arrangements for tomorrow's trip to the falls. The rest of the day is free for you to relax by the pool, check out the visitors to the local watering hole with a cold sundowner, or catch the complimentary shuttle into town, where there is an excellent range of curio and craft shops.

Day 2: Chobe National Park

One of the world's true natural wonders, Victoria Falls are commonly referred to by their Kololo name, Mosi-oa-Tunya or 'the Smoke That Thunders,’ and you’ll see and hear why on a morning tour after you're collected from your hotel at 7:30 am. Your guide will take you through the falls area, stopping at different vantage points along the way to explain the history of the falls and their surroundings: hundreds of miles away in northern Zambia, a little spring wanders along the earth, eventually ending in over 1 million gallons of water torrenting down a 328-foot-high drop a mile wide. Afterward, you will return to your lodge, farewell your Wild Horizons representative, and meet your Sheerwater/Chobezi representative at 10 am for your transfer into Botswana. Follow the Zambezi River to Botswana and make your way to Chobe National Park (approximately 2–3 hours, not including border formalities). You will arrive at your lodge on the bank of the Chobe River, just outside of the National Park, around midday. On arrival, meet with a local representative to review the rest of your itinerary. After lunch, there’ll be time to relax until a mid-afternoon game drive – you’ll almost certainly see elephants drinking at the waters' edge and keep your eyes open for the park’s large herds of buffalo too. The sunsets viewed from the river can be breathtakingly spectacular too. Accommodation at Chobe Safari Lodge is usually in rondavels – comfortable individual circular thatched units with private facilities and balconies. The lodge bar is a great place to enjoy a drink at the end of the day, and the pool is also the perfect place to wash the heat off the day or safari dust. Notes: Please contact Under One Botswana Sky (+267 625 0336) if you are still looking for your representative this morning.

Day 3: Chobe National Park

Today is a full day of wildlife exploration. You'll begin with a morning game drive to see the animals at their most active, followed by some time back at the lodge for relaxation during the hottest part of the day. Then, in the late afternoon, you'll take a boat trip out on the Chobe River. Chobe National Park is an archetypal big-game county where the size of the lion pride matches vast herds of buffalo and elephants. An estimated 70,000 Kalahari elephants roam the park and are the world's largest known subspecies of elephants by size. You may also see zebra, impala, wildebeest, and giraffe. The bird life on the river can be truly spectacular, with sightings of saddle-billed storks, malachite kingfishers, fish eagles, goliath herons, and beautiful bee-eaters. Elephants often congregate to drink and play in the river, and there are good hippopotamus numbers too. Although they are surprisingly shy, you might even spot a crocodile on the riverbanks. Tonight, return to the lodge for your final evening and perhaps enjoy a drink as you look out over the waters of the Chobe River. Notes: Visiting Chobe National Park is not a complete wilderness experience – you're sure to see other people, boats, and vehicles inside the park. But the beauty of Chobe is that you're also bound to see wildlife equal to anything anywhere in Africa.

Day 4: Moremi Game Reserve

After breakfast, you’ll fly into the Delta, where you’ll be met and transferred to your beautiful accommodation – spacious permanent tents with ensuites, all set on raised decks, with individual verandas. In the Angola Highlands, the rainwater accumulates and forms a river. This river flows into Botswana as the Okavango River, where it splits into many rivers and waterways, creating the Okavango Delta, which eventually reaches the Kalahari Sands in the South. The Okavango Delta, perhaps the most significant inland waterway in the world, is remarkably different from the countryside of the previous few days. The Delta offers a fantastic contrast of shallow waters, and deeper channels, interspersed by islands spread across some hundreds of square kilometers. Few fail to be moved by the tranquil beauty of the Delta and its magnificent surroundings. Here you’ll spend your time searching for aquatic antelope, relaxing, and soaking up the unique ambiance of this unique environment. You’ll also go ashore on some of the larger islands to stretch your legs and explore. Once you’ve settled into your accommodation, enjoy a spot of high tea, then head off for an afternoon gliding quietly through the wetlands and papyrus-clad waterways in traditional dugout canoes (mokoros) or on a sunset boat cruise. Propelled from the stern by skilled ‘poler’ guides, this trip allows you to sit back and absorb the scenery.

Day 5: Moremi Game Reserve

Your days will generally be a morning and afternoon activity in the wilderness. These are the more excellent times of the day when the animals are most active. While there are no guarantees, there is a good chance of spotting giraffes, kudu, impala, baboons, elephants, buffalo, tsessebe, warthog, wildebeest, waterbuck, zebra, hippo, and crocodile in the waterways. During the hotter central part of the day, you can relax on the camp's open decks or siesta by the pool. The bird life in the area is prolific and a true birders' paradise. If you're lucky, you might even see the rare and shy Pel's Fishing Owl.

Day 6: Okavango Delta

After breakfast and a morning activity, you will leave Gunn's Camp by small aircraft and fly to Rra Dinare Camp, your following base from which to explore the abundant wildlife and life-sustaining waters of the Okavango Delta. Your unique accommodation is in a significant private concession on the eastern side of the Delta. It overlooks the Gomoti River and has spectacular views of the classic flooding of the Okavango across the adjacent seasonal flood plains. The area lies on the far southwesterly boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve and offers an actual Okavango wilderness experience. This afternoon you'll have the opportunity for another game activity before dinner. Your actions at Rra Dinare camp include game drives, walks, and blissful time on the water in a mokoro.

Day 7: Okavango Delta

Today, the morning and afternoon are spent taking in the unspoiled and diverse wilderness of this stunning area, of open plains, riverine forests, mopane woodlands, and an inland waterway. This area receives floods typically last, therefore, contains some of the closest dry-season watering points for the game that spreads out towards Nxai and Makgadikgadi Pans during the rains. The area has good game viewing all year round due to the abundance of mopane woodlands - a favorite location for animals during the rains and early dry season. Familiar regional favorites include Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Kudu, Impala, Hippo, Crocodile, Genet, and rare Antelope breeds, including Roan, Sable & Eland. Further, lions, Leopards, Cheetah, and Wild dogs come to the riverside to drink and hunt. For those keen on birdwatching, the combination of the wetlands and the drier Acacia and Mopane veldt provide a perfect habitat for a variety of aquatic species, including Open Billed Storks, Hammerkops, Egrets, Ibis, and forest/savannah dwellers, including Raptors, Shrikes, Drongos, Sunbirds and Ground Hornbills among others.

Day 8: Maun

Enjoy breakfast with the group on your final morning before flying to Maun Airport, where our adventure ends.
