Feel the splash of the Okavango Delta from a dugout "mokoro" canoe and the mists of majestic Victoria Falls — described by the local Kololo people as "the smoke that thunders." Experience the colours, culture, and scenery of Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia on this well-packed eight-day adventure. Meet the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert and the elephants of Chobe National Park. With a knowledgeable Chief Experience Officer (CEO) leading the way, travel aboard the Lando (your overland adventure vehicle) is well-paced and wilderness camping will keep you in the thick of the action. Prepare yourself for an utterly unique African experience.
Arrive at any time.
Opt to visit Victoria Falls, go whitewater rafting, or take a helicopter flight over the falls.
Victoria Falls is a great base to see both natural wonders and take part in some exciting activities. Get up close (and wet from the spray) to the awesome Victoria Falls, opt to raft the whitewater of the mighty Zambezi, or bungee jump (with Victoria Falls in sight).
Cross the border from Zimbabwe into Botswana. Opt to take a wildlife viewing boat cruise on the Chobe River or a wildlife safari drive in an open safari vehicle in Chobe National Park.
You will stay over just outside of the park near the town of Kasane. This afternoon, take an optional wildlife safari drive in the park or an afternoon sunset boat cruise along the Chobe River - it's your best opportunity to view hippos, crocodiles, and many elephants wallowing in the water.
Opt to do a morning safari drive before travelling south to Gweta. Camp under ancient baobab trees.
When the rain comes, it brings life to the pans, awakening the dormant fish and aquatic shrimps from the mud. The surrounding grasslands also teem with life and are home to many antelope, which attract a wide variety of predators.
Opt to catch a bird's-eye view of the delta on a scenic flight.
Enjoy a wildlife walk, a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) excursion, and birding.
After leaving some of our luggage in Maun, we begin our exciting excursion into the delta as we drive about 1-2 hrs (depending on which dock we go to) to the "dock". Here, we hop into a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, which will take us deep into the delta. After a couple hours in a mokoro, we arrive to our basic bush camp.
Visit the Kalahari Desert and meet the local San Bushmen. Enjoy an optional walk to learn survival skills from the locals.
We continue through the western part of Botswana, the heart of the Kalahari, to Ghanzi. Get a glimpse of how the San adapted to the Kalahari Desert. Learn fascinating wilderness survival skills by local Bushmen on an optional Bushman walk.
Arrive in Windhoek after a long drive and a border crossing. Tour ends on arrival.
