On arrival at Maun International Airport you will board a charter flight to the Okavango Delta.
Considered one of Nature's masterpieces, the Okavango Delta offers an insight into one of Africa's truly great wildernesses. Protected by the Moremi Game Reserve and numerous private wildlife concessions, the Okavango Delta is home to huge numbers of elephant, buffalo, lion, hippo, giraffe and zebra. [Lunch, Dinner]

DAY 3   OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA – MAHANGO GAME PARK, NAMIBIA

After a delicious breakfast, board a charter flight to Maun from where you will cross into Namibia, a country of big skies and dramatic scenery, home to diverse wildlife reserves and incredible bird watching. Enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Okavango River, in search of elephants, crocodiles, hippos and fish eagles. [Breakfast, Dinner]



 

DAY 4      MAHANGO GAME PARK – ZAMBEZI REGION, NAMIBIA

Enjoy a game drive along the floodplains of the Mahangu Game Park. Year round water ensures an abundance of game, however, during the dry winter months, the chances of seeing game is higher as the animals seek out the river and waterholes. Visit the Popa Falls, with its perennial rivers, magnificent indigenous woodlands, riverine forests, floodplains and reed - lined channels. The 'falls' are in fact a series of cascades created by a quartzite ledge that causes the river to split into numerous channels. [Breakfast, Dinner]

DAY 5    ZAMBEZI REGION, NAMIBIA

Savor the opportunity to explore the beauty of the Zambezi region (formerly known as the Caprivi Strip) during an early morning open vehicle game drive. Often described as Namibia's answer to Botswana's Okavango Delta, the rivers, wetlands and forests of the Zambezi region support a diverse range of animals that include several species such as hippo and buffalo. In the afternoon you will visit a Traditional Village where the villagers will demonstrate various fishing and hunting techniques, as well as their customs and traditions. [Breakfast, Dinner]

DAY 6     ZAMBEZI REGION, NAMIBIA - CHOBE, BOTSWANA

This morning you will re-enter Botswana. Natural riches and a low human population density have combined to make Botswana one of the most rewarding countries in Africa in which to experience a big game safari. Large areas of the country have been set aside for wildlife, from the large mammals to water-loving specialties and incredible birds. [Breakfast, Dinner]

DAY 7    CHOBE, BOTSWANA


Enjoy a thrilling morning open vehicle game drive in the Chobe National Park, the second largest in Botswana, known for its superb game viewing all year round, as it has one of the largest populations of game on the African continent. Join a breathtaking afternoon sunset cruise, in search of magnificent wildlife sightings. [Breakfast, Dinner]
