Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1&2  Nxai Pan Camp

A light charter flight will take you from Maun to the beautiful Nxai Pan Camp for the first two nights of your safari.  Nxai Pan adjoins Makgadikgadi Pans National Park on its north border and was once an ancient salt lake.  Today it is renowned for its huge springbok population, and once the summer rains arrive it becomes a lush Garden of Eden where gemsbok, elephant and zebra migrate to the region.  This extraordinary event gives visitors a chance to see zebra in their thousands as they foal their young and the circle of life continues.  Large herds of giraffe can be spotted, and with these wandering herds of plains game, predators are attracted – lion, cheetah, leopard, jackal, wild dog and spotted hyena.  Join game drives as well as the chance to explore the pans and visit the famous Baines Baobabs

Day 3–5  Splash Camp, Okavango Delta

Your flight takes you to the heart of the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the crystal–clear waters flow from Angola into Namibia and make their way to this part of the Kalahari Desert to make up Africa’s largest wetland delta. Amid the mesh of meandering channels, islands and lush plains, animals abound from iconic predators including lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah to plains game and water specialists including waterbuck, lechwe and of course hippos and crocs.  Your lodge is located in the beautiful Kwara Private Reserve situated in a permanent water lcoation and activities are based around experiencing the region to the full with game drives, game walks, mokoro excursions and boat trips (note some may be seasonal).

Day 4–6  Lebala Camp, Kwando River

Onward to Lebala Camp hidden in the southern portion of the Kwando Wilderness made up of 232,000ha of waterways, floodplains, plains and woodland.  This beautiful region is home to a wide variety of Africa’s game including zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe and tsessebe as well as lechwe and the shy sitatunga.  Elephant and buffalo abound but perhaps one of the main reasons visitors travel here is for the wild dog sightings – regarded as one of the best places to spot this endangared predator.  During day and night game drives watch out for lion, leopard, cheetah as well as smaller cats in this incredible wilderness and  where game walks will give you the opportunity to spot the smaller species usually missed on drives

Day 9&10 The Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Your final nights are spent on a hilltop setting with views across unspoilt veld and onward to the spray of the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the Natural Wonders of the World.  Join a guided tour to the vast and thundering falls, along with a sunet cruise on the Zambezi River.

Day 11  End of Safari – Victoria Falls Airport

Today a road transfer will take you to Victoria Falls Airport in time for onward connection

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
