Overview

Okavango and Chobe Trail

Leaving behind the city of Johannesburg, we travel to the Kalahari to start out Okavango and Chobe Trail.

We venture deeper into the Central Kalahari and here we will spend time getting to know the fascinating San people. We will join our San guides for a guided walk that will introduce us to the many secrets of their survival in the Kalahari Desert. Then we head off to Maun in Botswana to prepare for our Okavango Delta experience. Exploring the Okavango Delta is a must for any tourist visiting Botswana.

Here, you’ll have an endless list of activities to participate in, truly making the most of your time in this paradise. Don’t forget to photograph hippos and crocodiles from your Mokoro (dugout canoe) before heading up to Chobe National Park. In Chobe, we take a river cruise where you can sip on an ice cold sundowner while watching elephants playing in and crossing the river only metres away. With the memories of our wildlife encounters firmly etched in our minds, we cross the border to Zimbabwe and travel the short distance to Victoria Falls. Whether rafting the mighty Zambezi River or enjoying a scenic flight over the falls below, this is your day to enjoy the many attractions on offer in Victoria Falls.

Day 4: Okavango Delta

Route: Maun – Okavango Delta – Maun

The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons, is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station (approximately 1 hour transfer) where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the mooring station. While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be encountered in this pristine wilderness area including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra.

Those guests who have pre-purchased the 2-night package – will be flown into the Delta this morning and will re-join the group on the morning of day 6. Please speak to your consultant for a copy of the programme for your Okavango Delta Excursion.
