Program

Day 1 Arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) - transfer to the city

You will be picked up from the international airport to the city by a representative from Nali Safaris. You will be dropped off at your overnight accommodation.

  • Accommodation: Safari Court Hotel or similar
  • Meals: bed and breakfast

Day 2 Windhoek - Kavango region, Mahango Game Park (Rundu Airport (NDU))

Today, you have an early start. You are transferred to Eros Airport (ERS) for your flight to Kavango region in the town of Rundu. You are picked from the airport to get to your accommodation. In the late afternoon, you visit the Mahango Game Park to a place somewhere “off the beaten track” with a true wilderness sensation.

  • Accommodation: Mahango Safari Lodge or similar.
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 3 Mahango Game Park - Bwabwata National Park

Have an early start today, heading east further in Caprivi area. En-route, you visit Bwabwata National Park. Expect to see elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, and at the river side, expect to see hippos, crocodiles, warthogs, baboons, and vervet monkeys. The large herds of elephants are migrants, moving between Angola and the Okavango Delta. Join the afternoon game boat cruise on Kwando River.

  • Accommodation: Kazile Island Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 4 Bwabwata National Park

Today, you will depart on a boat cruise in the early morning. Sun rays reflect off the water’s edge and the soothing sound of the water as it is gently broken by the bow of the boat cutting through the water’s surface. Around every corner, new birds, antelopes or carnivores quench the thirst. A sudden fountain of water followed by a deep grunt reveals the large pod of hippos curiously gazing upon your arrival. The boat comes to a halt.

Go for a guided game drive as midday sun retreats and the afternoon shadows lengthen. You depart on a journey, an adventure to discover the unknown behind every bend, observing every branch for a rare endemic bird, to be rewarded instead by an elusive leopard. The silence broken by the deep low rumble is vibrating through the bush, which could only belong to a large herd of elephants.

  • Accommodation: Kazile Island Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 5 West Caprivi - South Caprivi Strip, Nkasa Lupala National Park

Go for an early morning game drive today before you depart south of Caprivi Strip to Nkasa Lupala National Park which is wild. Perhaps that is why it is seldom visited. This adventurous watery wonderland of wildlife rich islands, river channels, and wetlands, mirrors Botswana's Okavango Delta.

  • Accommodation: Nkasa Lupala Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 6 South Caprivi Strip, Nkasa Lupala National Park

Nkasa Lupala National Park holds the distinction of being the largest wetland area with conservation status in Namibia. In turn, it protects flora and fauna living within a complex channel of reed beds, lakes, and islands, which form the Linyanti swamps. One of the lodge's main draw cards is that a large population of the park's wildlife roam freely around the unfenced lodge surroundings through the floodplain, savannah, and woodland habitat.

  • Accommodation: Nkasa Lupala Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 7 Southern Caprivi - Eastern Caprivi Strip

Camp Chobe is situated north east of Ngoma border post on the banks of the Chobe River overlooking the Chobe National Park. The Camp offers 12 chalets and a campsite. Visitors can observe elephants, buffalos, red lechwes, zebras, roans, and many other animals on Chobe River boat cruises and game drives.

  • Accommodation: Camp Chobe Tented Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 8 Eastern Caprivi Strip

Aptly and fondly known as ‘The Land of The Giants’, Chobe National Park in the north of beautiful Botswana is home to Africa’s largest elephant population and comprises more than 10,000 kilometer square of rich ecosystems, diverse landscapes, and an almost unparalleled abundance of wildlife and birdlife all centered around the stunning Chobe River, and in close proximity to a number of Southern Africa’s other safari must-sees.

  • Accommodation: Camp Chobe Tented Lodge or similar
  • Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 9 Air Namibia flight from Caprivi Strip to Windhoek
