The Victoria Falls is known as the largest sheet of falling water in the world. You will enter the Victoria Falls rain forest to explore the magnificent plant and birdlife of this unique rain forest—created by the constant spray of the thundering Falls falling on the surrounding area. On reaching the edge of the Falls, you will continue to explore the gorge through various view/vantage points as you are drenched by the Falls’ never ending spray.

You will leave Zimbabwe after your guided tour of Victoria Falls and cross the border into Botswana where you will spend a further two (2) nights of your safari vacation.

Chobe River boat cruise

Exploring Chobe National Park

Exploring Chobe National Park

This morning you wake up early in the morning for a light breakfast. Thereafter, you will head out to Chobe National Park for your morning game drive.

Tucked up in Botswana’s far northeastern border with Namibia, Chobe is one of the great wildlife destinations of Africa. At approximately 11 900sq km, Chobe is made up of rich ecosystems and pristine landscapes consisting of savanna plains, river, swamps and scrubs. It is the ultimate haven for vast herds of elephant. As many as 120,000 animals depend on the Chobe River’s life–sustaining waterways when the dry season kicks in.

Other resident game species are large herds of buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, the rare puku, roan and sable antelope. These are normally trailed by the notoriously fearless lions of the Chobe, leopard and cheetah.

You will return to your lodge around noon for your lunch.

Head out again into Chobe in the afternoon for your game drive and return to your lodge just before sunset.

Main Destination:
Chobe National Park (Botswana)

Day 4

Kasane - Savuti

Kasane - Savuti

This morning you leave your lodge once again after breakfast and head southwards to Savuti where you are going to spend one (1) night of your safari vacation.

Savuti is known for its predators, both big cats (lion, leopard and cheetah) and birds of prey–raptors, vultures and all manner of birds of prey that soar over Savuti’ landscape in search of food. Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all about Savuti is the 100–kilometres Savuti Channel. At times it will stop flowing and remain dry for years at a stretch. When the Savuti Channel recommences its flow, it changes the entire ecosystem, transforming the Savuti Marsh and Mababe Depression into
wetlands and thus creating an oasis that provides water for thirsty wildlife herds and acts as a magnet for a profusion of water birds.

Your days will be spent searching for Savuti’s resident wildlife. You will undertake morning and afternoon game drives to survey the wide–open grasslands and captivating scenery of the Savuti.

Main Destination:
Savuti (Chobe NP, Botswana)
Accommodation:
Budget camping
  • Inside Savuti

Savuti – Moremi/Khwai Concession

Today, after breakfast you will take a slow game drive through Savuti- a game drive that provides farewell to the area’s magnificent landscapes and mammals.
.
You will explore the Savuti and its marsh. The Savuti Marsh is a vast expanse of grasslands dotted with dead acacia trees creating an intriguing, almost ghost–like landscape.

Finally, you will head further southwards towards Khwai Concession for a two (2) night stay

At about 1800–square kilometres large, the Khwai is situated in the northeastern Okavango next to Moremi. It is a wildlife–prolific and varied ecosystem dominated by a patchwork of lagoons, grasslands, permanent flood plains and large areas of Mopane woodland forests. Khwai has a marvelous selection of predators such as lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, serval, African wild cat, etc.

In the afternoon you will go for your game drive and possibly watch the sunset unfold over the Khwai River.

This morning you will go for your usual morning game drive after an early light breakfast.

Your journey will follow the Khwai River’s watercourse weaving from the riverside and floodplains into the mophane veld and woodlands that make Khwai one of the most scenic areas of the Okavango.

Other resident species includes the Southern Giraffe, bufallo, Burchell’s Zebra, Tsessebe, the Greater Kudu, Impalas and various other nocturnal species.
