Itinerary

01

Day 1: Windhoek

Arrive at any time.
There are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting.

02

Day 2: Windhoek/Kalahari Desert

Explore the Kalahari Desert. Learn fascinating survival skills from the local San Bushmen on an optional walk and choose to enjoy a traditional bushmen dance in the evening.
Continue through the eastern part of Namibia and cross into Botswana before travelling into the heart of the Kalahari.

Arrive in the late afternoon and camp close to Ghanzi. Opt for a “bushman walk and dance”. Enjoy a local meal before settling in for the night.

03

Day 3: Kalahari Desert/Maun

Prepare for a 1-night/2-day journey into the Okavango Delta. Opt to take a scenic flight over the delta.
Travel along the northern portions of the Kalahari Desert throughout the day – this is a severely arid and barren landscape, though very beautiful.

After arrival in Maun, the biggest town in the Okavango Delta area, pick up any supplies needed and prepare for the journey into the Okavango Delta.

In the evening, watch a traditional dance group performance on the poolside terrace.

04

Day 4: Okavango Delta

Enjoy wildlife walks, birding and traditional mokoro excursions in the Okavango Delta. Learn the ways of the bush from the local 'polers'.
The excursion begins with a drive in customized safari vehicles for about 1-2 hrs to the "dock" to board a mokoro (a dugout canoe) that takes us deep into the delta. After a 1-2 hrs in the mokoro, arrive to the camp.

05

Day 5: Okavango Delta/Nata

Travel to Nata. Opt for a sunset wildlife safari drive or bush walk in the area. Watch elephants drink from the camp's watering hole at night.
Enjoy one last sunrise in the delta before travelling back to Maun by mokoro. Stop in Maun, pick up your luggage, have lunch, and continue to Nata.

06

Day 6: Nata/Kasane

Travel to Kasane. Opt to embark on a sunset boat cruise or photo wildlife safari on the Chobe River.
Travel to Kasane outside the gates of Chobe National Park, home to the largest elephant population in Southern Africa.

Opt for an evening boat cruise or wildlife safari drive. For photography enthusiasts, this place is heaven with hippos, elephants, and crocodiles all living by the river.

07

Day 7: Kasane/Victoria Falls

Opt for an early morning wildlife safari drive, before crossing into Zimbabwe. Choose to enjoy a visit to Victoria Falls, or try a helicopter flight over them.
Opt for a sunrise wildlife safari drive for one last chance to see the Big Five.

Cross the border to enter into Zimbabwe and continue on to Victoria Falls, arriving in the early afternoon. This is a great base to see natural wonders and take part in some adventure activities.

Opt to get up close (and wet from the spray) while visiting the immense Victoria Falls, raft the whitewater of the mighty Zambezi, or, for the more adventurous, bungee jump with Victoria Falls in view.

This tour was a quick way to discover parts of Africa, immerse myself into a culture, experience a part of the world unknown to me and taste different foods!

This was a fantastic tour! It entails a lot more driving than I'd realized but with the great group we had and the outstanding guide it made for a very pleasant trip! As we traveled after this tour, we began to realize how much we'd learned from the guides in each country - especially the Okavanga Delta. We didn't see "lots" of animals there but we learned a great deal about them and that information helped us out on the second trip. We learned a lot!

I booked my G Adventures trip to Africa with the expectation that my highlights would be seeing African animals and hiking through the countries we visited. What I did not know is that the tour guides (Gerard and Gerda) as well as the fun with the people in my group, would be the experience of the tour I will fondly remember the most.

The tour guide, Paul Roos, really made the tour with his caring, expertise and good nature. He was always cheerful and friendly, and in the Okavango proved himself to be a superb organizer and a wonderful cook. It was a pleasure being in his group.

It was a terrific experience. Our guide, Guts, ensured that every detail was looked after, while ensuring that we experienced all the "off the beaten path" locations and activities along our route.

My expectations were very very high on this tour. On the other hand, 2 weeks from departure I got to understand that it was not the best time of the year to see game and to see the falls, and so I got a little disappointed. Now that the tour has finished I have to honestly say that my greatest expectations were more than fulfilled, and for me it was definitely the best time to go! I enjoyed every second of it!

Overall this trip was fantastic. The Delta, Chobe National Park and Vic Falls definite highlights. We fell in love with Africa, and are now keen to do more discovery of this great country. The 10 days were a great opportunity to cover a lot in a short amount of time.
