  • DETAILED ITINERARY

    Day 1 & 2 - Moremi Crossing, Okavango Delta

     

    Guests will be met on arrival at Maun Airport and transferred by light aircraft to Moremi Crossing; a tented camp built on a palm fringed island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains and overlooking Chief's Island. This new style safari camp combines luxury with simplicity and is a 100% eco-friendly development featuring the latest in solar and waste disposal technology.

     

    Accommodation consists of 16 en suite and spacious tents on raised decks, each with their own veranda overlooking Chief's Island. Tents have their own eco-friendly outdoor shower heated by solar power. There is a Family Tent sleeping four (2 adults and 2 children) and a Honeymoon Tent with an outdoor bath.

     

    Activities are ‘water based’ and include mokoro canoes to explore the Okavango Delta's watery channels, propelled from the stern by skilled 'poler' guides, allowing the guests to sit back and absorb the scenery. Bush Walks explore the wilderness on foot under the guidance and education of your own personal guide. Motor-Boat Sunset Cruises are also great way to explore the crystal clear channels of the Boro River, organised in time to toast the unprecedented African sunsets while drifting on a lagoon in the middle of the Okavango Delta.

    Day 3 & 4 - Khwai Community Area/Moremi Game Reserve

     

    The two days in the Khwai Community Area will be spent searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds that this area is renowned for, while absorbing the sounds and beauty of this region. A mokoro excursion will take you along a channel of the Khwai River to view game from another perspective and to experience this tranquil mode of transport.  Game drives in the early morning as the sun rises and in the late afternoon as the sun sets will be the norm with half a day dedicated to exploring the Moremi Game Reserve.(Camping will be in private designated campsites.)

    Day 5 & 6 - SAVUTI/ZWEI ZWEI, Chobe National Park

    DAY 5: MOREMI – SAVUTI: 120KM. 5-6 HRS

    Chobe National Park, with its diverse and striking landscapes, will be your next destination.  As you continue your search for wildlife, you will traverse the drier region of Savuti where bull elephants dot the plains.  Savuti is very well known for its predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and even African wild dog.  The Savuti Channel has started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years.  The arrival of water is changing the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti.  This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephant as well as buffalo to visit the area.(Camping will be in private designated campsites.)

    Day 7 & 8 - CHOBE RIVER, Chobe National Park

    DAY 7: SAVUTI - CHOBE RIVER: 170KM, 5HRS

    You will then head northwards to the Chobe River where your game drives will meander along the banks of the river, followed by the call of the majestic African Fish Eagle.  The Chobe River Floodplain is an amazing game viewing area where water attracts large herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra and other herbivores.  Due to the proliferation of prey, predators are likely to be close at hand.  Sun sets in this region as always spectacular and allows amazing photographic opportunities.  While in Northern Chobe, you will participate in a cruise on the Chobe River.  This experience allows you to get a closer look at the aquatic animals and birds not easily approached on safari.

    Day 9 & 10 - ILALA LODGE, Victoria Falls

    After an early morning activity, the mobile safari will end at 12:00 in Kasane (clients can have lunch in Kasane before their transfer to Vic falls – at own expense) where clients will be transferred by road to Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe where they will stay for two nights. Ilala Lodge is situated close to the Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe as well as to the town centre. Wild animals are often seen grazing the hotel lawns as the National Park borders the front of the property.

    The Lodge offers 32 rooms: 24 twins, 8 doubles and 2 suites. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom with a separate shower, air-conditioning and an overhead fan. Guests are served early morning tea/coffee and fruit. The rooms are spacious with railway sleeper teak furnishings and patio doors leading onto either an open lawn or a balcony where you are afforded a view of the Victoria Falls. There is an à la carte restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a comprehensive wine list and cocktails. Dining outside under the African night sky amidst the sound of the mighty waterfall makes for a very romantic evening.
