This safari takes nature lovers across Southern Africa to three countries over nine days to explore the great outdoors in true African style. On this tour, provisions are made for food, accommodation, and transfers as you make your way through the wild with our professional guide. You will also get a professional guide for the duration of the trip. It’s the ideal getaway for people seeking fun, adventure, and relaxation all wrapped up in one unforgettable bundle.
Your accommodation during this safari will be a mix of hotels, lodges, and camping.
Arrive at Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) near Windhoek during the day and a professional guide will be there (holding a sign board with your name on it) to collect and transport you to your place of accommodation. They’ll even help you check in, upon request. If you prefer, Tamuka Travel can arrange to collect you from the hotel.
The tour kicks off with a brief welcome meeting and the opportunity to enjoy some sightseeing in Windhoek, the capital city of the Republic of Namibia. In Windhoek, guests can explore the lively city’s many attractions after settling in to their hotel. Popular places to visit in the city include Christuskirche (Christ Church), Parliament Gardens, the Windhoek railway station, the Independence Memorial Museum and Lover’s Hill.
In the evening, you’ll be taken out for a pleasant dinner at a favorite local restaurant. Here, you will learn all about the fascinating history of Windhoek and Namibia, from the colonial era to the present day. After a good fill of satisfying food and conversation, you will return to your hotel to wash up and rest.
On the second day, following an early hotel breakfast in the morning, you will cross the Namibian border and drive into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. This is a 530-kilometer journey (330 miles) that is likely to last a long time. Since the drive will take up a good portion of the day, a packed lunch will be provided on the trip.
The Kalahari Desert, which covers much of Botswana, is a large semi-arid savanna filled with sand that extends for approximately 900,000 square kilometres (350,000 square miles). It is a hot, desert-like landscape that is vast and desolate. Despite its barrenness, tourists can expect to see terrain and nature elements that are quite beautiful and unique, including red Kalahari sand dunes, wild animals and mystical African sunsets.
The journey to the Kalahari lasts 6 to 7 hours. Upon arrival at the destination in the late afternoon, you’ll be taken on a Bushman Walk where you will tread along inspiring paths rich in wildlife and flora. The walk will be led by knowledgeable camp guides that hail from the native San Bushmen clans. After the walk, you’ll get the chance to dance and enjoy a traditional local meal around a campfire. Then, shower and hit the sack.
When you wake up on day three, a tray with tea, coffee, and delicious homemade biscuits will be waiting outside your tent. This will be followed by a hearty and satisfying breakfast. After breakfast, you will head out for a refreshing morning walk. This will be your last opportunity to explore the Kalahari Desert’s undulating landscape filled with hardy wildlife and unusual vegetation and take in its endless horizons.
Shortly after the brief morning walk in the Kalahari, you will embark on a journey to the Okavango Delta in Botswana 686 kilometers (426 miles) away. It takes roughly 9 hours to get there by motor vehicle, which is long, but a prepacked lunch is provided to guests and short stops will be made along the way. This is your chance to see some of Africa’s most spectacular and unique landscapes. You will be driven to a private camping site on Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta for a two-night stay.
The adventure in the Okavango Delta commences with a late afternoon walk in an incredible wilderness sanctuary that stretches on for thousands of square kilometers. Here, you will find grassy plains that become lakes, channels beset by vegetation, and islands surrounded by iconic African trees, as well as a plethora of wild land and water animals. The day ends with a three-course dinner, a hot shower, and a good night’s sleep outdoors.
In the early hours of the morning, you will receive a wake-up call and be treated to a hot cup of tea or coffee. A full breakfast will be served, as well. After breakfast, you will begin the day with a relaxing Mokoro Safari. On this safari, you will experience the tranquil nature of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, where floodplains have produced a stunning network of waterways, lagoons, and islands and game viewing is unsurpassed.
The mokoro (or makoro) is a type of canoe that is propelled through shallow waters from the rear with a long pole. It is commonly used in the Okavango because it allows tourists to glide through peacefully and experience the sounds and sights of nature without disturbing the native wildlife. The Okavango Delta is home to elephants, impala, giraffe, hippos, and many other terrestrial and aquatic animals, and birdlife is abundant.
A scrumptious lunch (prepared for you ahead of time) and well-deserved break follow the dreamy Mokoro safari in the afternoon. Once you’re rested, one of the Okavango guides will escort you to a well-known site nearby where it is safe to swim. This will be followed by another Mokoro / walking Safari. At the end of the day, you will be served an appetizing dinner and refreshments before showering and retiring for the evening.
Next destination, Maun. But not before enjoying some breakfast and taking one last walk through the elaborate Okavango Delta, where winding channels slice through carpets of emerald marsh and spill into lagoons occupied by hippos and other amazing creatures. All the wild animal inhabitants of the Okavango spring to life in the morning (expect many close encounters), and Okavango sunrises are breathtaking.
Maun is the fifth-largest town in Botswana and the largest town in the Okavango Delta region. Known for its large populations of donkeys, goats and other farm animals (these creatures can often be spotted roaming freely here), it’s a good place to purchase supplies. The drive from the Delta to Maun (68 kilometers away) takes about an hour. In Maun, you’ll have a packed lunch and rest. Then you'll be in your way to Nata, 300 kilometers away.
Once in Nata, a village in Central Botswana, you will check in to a lodge and settle in. Then, drive out onto the Makgadikgadi Pan at sunset for sightseeing. This is the perfect time to do this, as watching the African skies change from blue into pink and gold over the pans as the sun goes down is truly magical. After the late drive, you will head back to the guest lodge for dinner and freshening up before turning in to get some shuteye.
You will wake up and have breakfast in Nata, which lies along the Nata River. This river carries its seasonal rain flow to the Makgadikgadi Pan. The Makgadikgadi is one of the largest salt pans in all the world, although technically it isn’t a single salt pan but multiple salt pans. When the rains come during the year, these pans are covered with water and grass, forming a breeding ground for water birds - a bird watching enthusiast’s dream.
After breakfast, guests will have time to explore Nata. Alternatively, you can relax at the lodge with family and friends and kick back a little before the tour continues. In the afternoon, you will drive to Kasane, a town situated in the north-eastern corner of Botswana. The distance between Nata and Kasane is about 389 kilometers. The scenic journey is anything but boring, though. A packed lunch is provided en route.
You will arrive at Kasane late in the afternoon and check into our hotel, after which you will be able to rest and get acquainted with the establishment and the area. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to freshen up in your room before sitting down to a hotel dinner. The food and accommodation in Kasane are commendable. Peaceful slumber will top off the evening, preparing you for your adventures in Victoria Fa,lls the next day.
On this morning, you will have breakfast at your hotel. Then, you’ll have the option of going on a morning game drive or doing a photo safari in Chobe National Park, which has one of the largest game populations in Africa. The drive takes place in a customized 4×4 safari vehicle with experienced safari guides. If you prefer, you can use this time to rest before driving 81 kilometers to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. You will have a packed lunch on the way.
On arrival in Victoria Falls, check in to your hotel where you’ll have some time to relax. In the evening, make your way to the Zambezi River at sundown for a relaxing boat cruise. This is a wonderful time to take a cruise because the river is filled with wildlife (animals flock there to drink water) and visitors can witness one of the most beautiful sunsets in Africa. Dinner will be served on the boat once the sun goes down - the perfect ending to a week packed with fun and adventure. Then, you will be transferred to your hotel.
After breakfast at your hotel, your guide will pick you up for a guided tour of Victoria Falls. This experience takes you near the cliffs opposite the massive waterfall via the Victoria Falls Rainforest, where you’ll be able to take in spectacular views. The next activity, The Flight of Angels, provides even better views of the Falls. It’s a 15-minute helicopter flight that provides a bird’s-eye perspective of Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River. This is the best way to take in Victoria Falls, both on the ground and in the air.
For lunch, you’ll go to Victoria Falls hotel, which overlooks a manmade waterhole offering an excellent opportunity to view wildlife including elephant, kudu, buffalo, impala, as well as a variety of birds. After lunch you’ll walk down for the Vulture Culture Experience which is a feeding program that aids the survival of these very endangered birds. Enjoy the remarkable sight of hundreds of raptors swooping down a few feet away.
You will depart from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe on the ninth day. Depending on your onward travel arrangements, there may still be time for optional activities before departing.
All three countries are famed for its stunning beauty, incredible wildlife, early African history, and culture. The parks you’ll visit boast some of the biggest numbers and variety of wildlife in all of Africa. You’ll be seeing the seven wonders of Africa, Okavango Delta, and one of the seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls. In stark contrast is the Kalahari Desert, that has stunning undulating landscape found nowhere else in Africa.
Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided during the tour are at the hotel and the campsites. Snacks will be provided during the cruises in Kasane and Victoria Falls.
