Itinerary

Day 1: Victoria Falls, Livingstone

We will meet you at Livingstone Airport and drive you to Waterberry Lodge, which is about 20kms from Livingstone on the banks of the Zambezi River. It's a lovely quiet spot and you have two nights here. Whilst here you can choose 2 activities per day from the following list: tour of Victoria Falls, sunset cruise, daytime cruise, fishing, island picnic, guided birding, guided village walk, guided tour of Livingstone town and markets.

Day 2: Victoria Falls, Livingstone

Enjoy another day of activities in the Victoria Falls region. Bear in mind that as well as you included activities, you could also choose to do other activities available here, such as whitewater rafting, helicopter rides over the Falls or bungy jumping! At Waterberry, enjoy a peaceful setting and some great food.

Full board.

Day 3: Chobe Riverfront

After breakfast we will take you over to Botswana, to Chobe Elephant Camp in the Chobe Forest area. The roughly 2 hour journey includes a short motor boat trip over to Kasane, the town adjacent to Chobe.  Your lodge is just a few miles out of Kasane in a peaceful valley. You have two days here, and there is a range of things to do. Perhaps today an afternoon boat trip on the Chobe River might be the perfect way to celebrate being in Botswana!

Full board.

Day 4: Chobe Riverfront

You'll be able to enjoy a game drive in the famous Chobe National Park. It is a park well known for its huge population of elephants, but that is certainly not all. There is a wide diversity of wildlife here, from antelopes such as impala and sable, to giraffes, buffalos and hippos to predators such as lions, leopards and hyenas. Other activities you could enjoy from the lodge are nature walks and also a visit to the local village.

Full board.

Day 5: Okavango Delta, Kwara Camp

This morning we will drive you to Kasane Airport where you'll take a light plane to Kwara Camp in the Okavango Delta. Kwara has an excellent position in the Delta. It is on a private concession right next to Moremi Game Reserve. The diversity of the landscape here (permament water, floodplains,grasslands and pans) attracts an equal diversity of wildlife. You can enjoy the wildlife experience in a variety of ways here too. Day game drives are supplemented by guided walks, mokoro (dugout canoe) trips and motor boat trips too. Night drives are also possible here. Your safari at Kwara should be a real highlight.

Full board.

Day 6: Okavango Delta, Kwara Camp

Leaving your luxury safari tent this morning, we'll hope to get you close to all manner of wildlife today. The guides at Kwara also have professional spotters on all vehicles, so your chances of finding game is very high. After relaxing back at the camp during the lunchtime siesta, you'll be out again in the afternoon, and enjoying sundowners by the evening.

Full board.

Day 7: Okavango Delta, Pom Pom Camp

After one last early morning game activity and breakfast, we will transfer you to your next Delta camp by light aircraft. Pom Pom Camp is to the west of Moremi Game Reserve. Offering night and day game drives, walks and mokoro excursions, your safari adventure in Botswana's most famous area, the Okavango Delta, continues with yet more excitement.

Full board.

Day 8: Okavango Delta, Pom Pom Camp

A morning and an afternoon game activity is separated by a delicious lunch and a siesta back at camp. During the day you'll search for all the big predators and their plains game prey such as zebras, wildebeest, and antelopes. Birders might be lucky enough to spot a Pel's fishing owl, and you're sure to see African fish eagles. As the sun sets, stop for a G&T then try an exciting night drive back to camp.

Full board.

Day 9: Nxai Pan

After your morning game activity, we'll fly you back to Nxai Pan for a change of scenery. This is a total contrast to the lush Okavango Delta, and one of the only places where you will see springbok and impala in the same place. Today you can go on a walking safari with San Bushmen, and enjoy game drives in this interesting landscape.

Full board.

Day 10: Nxai Pan

Enjoy your last day on safari, and make the most of this lovely camp during the day. The wildlife you might see here varies depending on the time you visit, as it's very much a seasonal movement of game in this area. In the dry winter months, around June to November, you will often see big herds of elephants, plus large numbers of zebra and wildebeest (and their accompanying predators), though there is always resident wildlife around throughout the year.

Full board.

Day 11: Depart

Meals: Breakfast

After breakfast and your morning game activity (a walk with Bushmen and/or a game drive) we will take you back to the airstrip to catch your flight to Maun. From here you will be able to link with your onward flights.

Sleeping under the stars in the Kalahari while the lions roared just outside the camp boundary; close encounters with lions, cheetah, leopard and meeting a brown hyena on the way to bed (all under the safe company of our guide).

An excellent choice of hotels/lodges (thanks Alex) for a first visit to CR – many different habitats and associated varied wildlife, especially birds. Favourite accommodations were Rancho Naturalista and Macaw Lodge, as their smaller set-ups allowed for greater attention to detail and care by the staff. The food at these two was excellent too. Another time, I would definitely stay at these two again...

Every aspect of this trip was brilliant. Seeing snow leopards in the wild has been a long-held ambition of my wife and me and this trip delivered big time, with no less than four separate sightings. Expectations were low given the difficulties involved an

Everything was awesome but if we had to single anything out it would be our homestay in Rumbak - a delightful family in a great community and with accommodation that was a privilege to be able to share with them. We heard that the Indian govt is considering a ban on continued residence in the National Park and we think that would be a real shame, and counter-productive from a conservancy point of view.
