Overview

Delta and Chobe Trail

Meet your guides and the rest of your group in Windhoek for your Delta and Chobe Trail, before heading to Ghanzi where you will be entertained with local tribal dancing from the San Community. The San people have long been associated with the harsh environment of the Kalahari. You will have the opportunity of joining an optional walk with San guides to learn how they embrace the environment to survive. Prepare to enter one of the world’s most unique wilderness areas, the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Follow the hippo trails in dugout mokoros (traditional canoes) and join your guide on nature walks to discover the islands. We head up to Chobe National Park where you can watch the African sunset from the comfort of your river cruiser, expect a close encounter with hippo and elephants! Our tour ends in Vic Falls where you can take part in a number of adrenaline activities that are available there. The spectacular Victoria Falls, also known by the local name of ‘Mosi-oa Tunya’ (the smoke that thunders), is undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful treasures.  

This tour has a Comfort Option available.

Route: Windhoek to Ghanzi

Today we travel east and make our way to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. Starkly different to the Namib Desert after which Namibia is named, the Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and tonight we enjoy a dance evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.

This unique and unusual ecosystem sees the annual flood waters of the Okavango River fan out into the sands of the Kalahari Basin.
