While the emphasis of a Botswana safari is often on large mammals - and there are plenty of these - there are many other specialized creatures to be seen and enjoyed, from brightly-colored birds to secretive antelope, from frogs to fish. But overall it is often the sense of wilderness and pristine functioning ecosystems that have the most significant impact on all who come to visit. On this safari, you will enjoy wildlife sightings in the Okavango Delta for three nights under canvas tents, followed by two nights in Victoria Falls.
The camp consists of a main area with campfire and mess tent. Your accommodation is in 2.1 x 2.1 meters dome tents. A five centimeters high density foam mattress is provided for each guest. Sleeping bags and pillows are not included, but may be rented for an additional fee. Ablutions are shared. There is a separate shower cubicle and toilet cubicle with bush toilet (long drop). Both are enclosed by canvas for privacy and protection from wildlife.
Note: When camping in the Okavango you will leave your main luggage in the trailer and will need to pack a smaller bag (small backpack, hand luggage) with what you need for the days on the island. Transfers from the mainland to the island where you will stay are done on traditional dugout canoes (mekoros) which cannot accommodate large bags. Your main luggage will safely remain in the vehicle that will be parked in a secured area while you are on the island.
The Zambezi Waterfront has long been known as the heart of Livingstone, Victoria Falls, Zambia. Only four kilometers from the area's main attraction, Victoria Falls, the resort is ideally positioned to take advantage of the many activities that are on offer in the area. The Waterfront resort offers great facilities including a restaurant and bar where many sundowners have been enjoyed from the deck whilst overlooking the Zambezi River and Siloka Island.
Sundowners on the Zambezi River are an essential start to a holiday in Victoria Falls. Each day the HMV Makumbi, the party boat of note, departs from the Waterfront jetty for a sunset cruise up the Zambezi, that includes all drinks and snacks, returning as night falls.
The highlights for the delta are elephants on the water, buffaloes on the water, impalas, kudus, and many birds such as francolins, hornbills, shrikes, guinea fowls, spurfowls, and lapwigs. A unique spectacle of the delta is also the beautiful landscape. A brief program for the day is as follows:
The Southern tip of Okavango Delta marks the start of a wetland paradise. On arrival you will meet your polers from the local community with their mekoros (traditional dugout canoes). Days in the delta follow a different rhythm, marked by the gentle splash of the mokoro pole.
Days on mokoro safaris are spent cruising quietly along reed lined channels and floodplains. You will enjoy the spectacular landscape of this unique region with a combination of mokoro excursions and guided nature walks on the islands and floodplains of the Okavango, camping wild with bush ablutions on small islands.
Note: This is a semi-participation required safari, requiring a minimum participation from the guests, like setting up the tent and packing it, carrying their bag from and to the vehicle at campsites. The rest of the camp chores are carried out by a team made up of one guide and one camp assistant.
Depart early from the Okavango Delta en-route to Moremi for two nights. You will go on a game drive early in the morning and again in the afternoon. A brief program for the day is as follows:
Depart Moremi after enjoying a full English breakfast. Guests will transfer by road to Maun and use a shuttle transfer to Victoria Falls, via Kasane. The transfer will pass through the Zambia - Botswana border, and your guide will assist you with border formalities. You will stay at Zambezi Waterfront, in a standard adventure village tent on a full board basis, with all three meals and selected activities.
On arrival, you will have time to check in and have lunch and proceed to a guided tour of the falls. The afternoon is followed by a two-hour Zambezi sunset cruise.
This day is spent doing optional activities that can be chosen from the list below:
After breakfast, you will check out of the Zambezi Waterfront and transfer to Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (LVI) for your international flight.
Note: Transport is in a custom made 12-seat 4x4 safari vehicle. A trailer is towed with all the camping necessities needed for your guide and assistant to set up camp and attend to all chores. Please note that for mobile safaris that have road transfers between camps the transportation will be in a vehicle which is open and windy with some transfers taking from four to six hours depending on the routing.
Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterized by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills, and desert plains scattered with scrub land. The country’s primary tourist draw card is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world.
These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season, the Savuti Plains, which host large prides of lions, and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4,500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia can be found.
Situated in the northwestern corner of Botswana, the Okavango Delta is a World Heritage Site as it is the largest inland delta in the world. The magnificent Okavango River sprawls out over the dry sands of the Kalahari Desert forming this flourishing waterlogged oasis featuring countless meandering waterways and crystal clear lagoons studded with water lilies, as well as fertile floodplains and reeded islands inhabited with abundant wildlife.
The Okavango Delta stretches over 15,000 square kilometers. Visitors can enjoy a number of wonderful activities such as game viewing, bird watching, or taking an authentic guided mokoro excursion through this wetland paradise in a traditional dugout canoe. Commonly spotted animals include lions, rhinos, leopards, giraffes, hippos, elephants, crocodiles, and countless species of birds.
This unique, peanut-shaped country, once known as Northern Rhodesia, offers visitors an authentic African experience complete with adrenaline-pumping adventure sports, a variety of fascinating cultural activities, and an abundance of indigenous wildlife which finds refuge in Zambia’s vast national parks. Spend your evenings enjoying the spectacular site of the world’s largest waterfall, the Victoria Falls, while sipping on sundowners after an exhilarating day of whitewater rafting down the rapids of the mighty Zambezi River.
If that sounds a little too adventurous for your taste, take a houseboat cruise along the exquisite Lake Kariba while watching wild elephants drink at the riverbank. However you choose to spend your time in this unique country, you are bound to leave with a heavy heart and a desire to return again soon to this exceptionally beautiful Southern African country.
Located a few kilometers from the Zambezi River in southwestern Zambia, the bustling town of Livingstone is famous as the home of the magnificent Victoria Falls. One of the original natural wonders of the world, the World Heritage Site is known locally as The Smoke that Thunders. This spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and is an ideal place to combine game viewing and water sports.
There is a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial whitewater rafting in the world. Visitors can hike around the falls or try zip lining or the bridge swing. Those seeking more leisurely activities can take sunset cruises along the river, with champagne and snacks included, meander through the vibrant local Livingstone market, or discover the region’s history and archaeology at the Livingstone Museum.
During your stay, you will be provided with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
You can spend day five doing optional activities that can be chosen from the list below:
