Itinerary

 Starting Point: Windhoek, Namibia

Day 1 – ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

We are picked up at our accommodation and get a transfer to the Eros airport situated in Windhoek.  Leaving Windhoek behind us, we fly to the eastern side of world-renowned Etosha National Park. Our lodge is situated at the entrance gate, and besides authentic African flair offers a modern wellness spa. In the afternoon we enter the park for our first game drive in an open vehicle.

Accommodation: Mokuti Etosha Lodge
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 – ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

In the early morning we again travel by open vehicle into the Etosha National Park. The Etosha Pan, a vast saline desert that shimmers with terrestrial heat during the day, is surrounded by a number of waterholes that sustain over 114 different game as well as 340 different bird species. We may encounter four of the Big Five species as well as rare and endangered animals such as cheetah, sable and the Damara dik-dik, Namibia’s smallest antelope. We will return to the lodge at about noon and then go back to the park in the afternoon. With sunset, we travel out of the park back to our lodge.

Accommodation: Mokuti Etosha Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3 – BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK

Departing the Etosha National Park after breakfast, we fly north into Namibia’s lush Caprivi region, reputed as Southern Africa’s most celebrated birding hot spot. Our lodge lies on one of the shady banks of the Okavango River among tall and ancient African ebony and marula trees and promises us an exceptional and unforgettable nature experience. In the late afternoon we navigate the lush channels of the Okavango River on a boat cruise to experience the Caprivi’s natural fauna and flora.

Accommodation: Divava Okavango Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 4 – VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE

Our flight takes us over the lush Caprivi Strip to the Chobe National Park, where we transfer to Victoria Falls. It is the widest waterfall on Earth, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders on Earth. This dramatically beautiful event is accompanied by a deafening roar and fine spray that arcs up into the sky, giving the falls its local name: Mosi-oa-Tunya – the “Smoke that Thunders”. This afternoon explore the falls on a guided excursion to experience this natural phenomenon with its lush rain forest inhabited by a rich variety of birds and animal species such as Bushbuck and monkeys. Witness the spray and rapturous thunder of the falls as millions of tons of water tumble over the ridge into the deep, narrow gorge, lying 360 feet below. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at your hotel.

Accommodation: Ilala Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5 – VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE

The day is at leisure, and we have the option of either walking through the streets of the historic town or participating in optional activities that Victoria Falls is so famous for: a helicopter flight over the falls, wildlife experiences on foot, on water or even from the back of an elephant. For the more adventurous, Victoria Falls is a haven for white water rafting, bungee jumping or abseiling, to name a few of the activities available.

Accommodation: Ilala Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6 – CHOBE RIVER FRONT

After breakfast we travel by vehicle back to Botswana and to the Chobe National Park. Its river forests and floodplains support a multitude of game species, which in turn attract predators such as lions, leopards and hyenas. It is home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, and during the dry season the herds congregate along the fertile flood plains of the Chobe River. Some of the other game species found within the park and along the banks of the river consist of large herds of buffalo, puku, lechwe, bushbuck and kudu. This afternoon experience the Chobe River with its magnificent animals and birds while enjoying a sundowner boat trip.

Accommodation: Chobe Safari Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7 – OKAVANGO DELTA

After an early morning game drive in the Chobe National Park, our flight takes us over the Okavango Delta. Its crystal clear waters spread across the Kalahari Desert, forming the worlds’ largest wetland delta and one of the most celebrated wildlife areas on earth. Its waterways are a mesh of meandering and intercepting channels, creating a haven for a myriad of animals and birds. Explore this natural environment and its amazing fauna and flora on a game drive, boat cruise, guided walk or Mokoro (traditional canoe) depending on the season and amount of water in the delta.

Accommodation: Moremi Crossing Camp or similar
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 – OKAVANGO DELTA

Enjoy morning and afternoon activities in the Moremi Reserve with your lodge that will bring you closer to and also teach you more about this amazing water wonderland. The area is a birder’s paradise with over 240 different species inhabiting the delta. Activities are land or water borne, and depend on the seasons within the Okavango Delta.

Accommodation: Moremi Crossing Camp or similar
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 – DEPARTURE

After breakfast you fly over the Okavango Delta and the parallel red dunes of the Kalahari Desert back to Namibia. Your pilot will either drop you off at the international airport for your outward flight, or at the Eros airport in Windhoek where you get transferred to your separately booked hotel.

Meal Basis: Breakfast
