    Days 3-4: Discovering the Iconic Okavango Delta

    Prepare for two fantastic days experiencing the world’s largest inland delta as you spend your days exploring this unique ecosystem on foot or by morkoro – a traditional dugout canoe. The wildlife, flora, and fauna are stunning and many of the animals are not used to people. 

    Your day will begin with a scenic flight into the Okavango Delta to your accommodation, which will be your base for the two nights. Explore the area during the day, while at night you can sit by the fire listening to the sounds of the wild all around you.

    Following your flight out of the Delta, drive to the town of Gweta stopping at the Planet Baobab for the night. Situated near the Makgadikgadi Pans, the area is vastly open with some of the oldest Baobab trees. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the bush and observing the massive trees that your accommodation is named after.

    Day 6: Cruising Along the Chobe River

    Make your way north, as you travel between the Chobe National Park to the west, and Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park to the west, towards the town of Kasane. Keep your eyes open as elephants have been seen crossing between the two national parks. 

    Once in Kasane, embark on a sunset cruise up the Chobe River – the northern border of the national park – looking for hippos and elephants that come down to the river for a drink or swim.

    Days 7-8: Experiencing Powerful Victoria Falls

    After an optional game drive in the Chobe National Park, set off for the adrenalin adventure capital, Victoria Falls. Take some time in the afternoon to organise your activities for tomorrow, before exploring the Victoria Falls National Park and seeing the mighty Falls. The evening could be spent relaxing in town, or why not take another sunset cruise, but on the Zambezi this time. 

    The next day, your tour ends following breakfast, but you should have enough time to partake in the activities you want to do. There are several activities to do such as bungee jumping, scenic flight over the Falls, or walking with the lions.
