Botswana Highlights Southbound - 6 Day Camping Tour (NVM)
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Chobe National Park, Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls
This tour starts in Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat. Leaving Chobe, we set off for the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometres. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. Polers guide your mokoros through the waterways and nature walks will fill your days
Day 1 - Kasane – Botswana
Established in 1968, the Chobe National Park covers approximately 11700 sq kms, encompassing floodplains, swamps and woodland. Take advantage of your time here by enjoying a game drive through the park, in search of vast herd of elephants and a multitude of antelope including the rare sable.
Day 2 - Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls – Botswana – Kasane
Stand beside the “smoke that thunders” watching and listening as the roar of 546 m³ of water, minute by minute, plunges down into a 100 m deep gorge below. Besides the falls themselves there are numerous land and water based activities to keep you busy for a day or two prior to your tour beginning.
Day 3 - Gateway to the Delta
Today we enter Namibia and travel through the Caprivi Strip, crossing three national parks en-route to our next destination. A beautiful sunset awaits us at our camp situated on the panhandle of the delta.
Please note: If you have not purchased the Activity Package you will stay behind at the accommodation during the Delta Excursion on the next two following days.
Day 4 - Okavango Delta
After arrival, we settle in and prepare for our afternoon cruise that ends with sundowners overlooking the waterways of the Delta.
Clients not doing the activity package will continue to their camp for the next 2 nights, where they can relax or do any of optional activities including fishing, boat and Mokoro trips (the traditional dug-out canoe of the Delta) The rest of the group crosses the ferry at Shakawe and transfers deep into the Delta.
Day 5 - Okavango Delta
An early start sees us head off on the crystal clear waters of the Okavango. Water lily beds and palm islands make for he most scenic of experiences. We make our way to one of the larger islands for our nature walk, where we have the possibility of seeing some of the abundant wildlife. A breakfast awaits us after our walk. We return to camp to relax before heading out on our afternoon sunset game drive.
Day 6 – Maun
Your tour will come to an end this morning after breakfast.
