9-Day Okavango Wilderness Trail Small-Groups Tour from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

ItineraryDay 1: Victoria Falls, ZimbabweStop At: Cresta SprayviewYour guide will meet you at the hotel reception at approximately 3pm where you will be offered the opportunity to enjoy an activity briefing and book activities for your free time in Victoria Falls. This afternoon we enjoy a sunset dinner cruise on the Zambezi River, a few kilometres above the mighty Victoria Falls themselves. With binoculars and cameras at the ready we have a good chance of spotting hippo, crocodile, various species of antelope as well as elephants that come down to the water’s edge to drink before sunset. The cruise starts between 3pm–4pm (you will be collected at the hotel), so if you are arriving on this day, please ensure that your flight arrives in plenty of time to enjoy this experience!Duration: 1 dayNo meals included on this day.Accommodation included: Overnight at Cresta Sprayview Hotel, Victoria Falls, ZimbabweDay 2: Victoria Falls, ZimbabweStop At: Cresta SprayviewToday we visit the Victoria Falls National Park itself to witness one of Africa’s most enduring sights. Please take care when wandering along the pathways inside the reserve - the Falls are almost 100 metres deep and the drops are sheer! The afternoon you have the choice of joining activities or simply relax in our beautiful surroundings. Popular activities include scenic flights for a birds-eye view of the falls, bungy jumping off the Livingstone Bridge, gorge swinging, jet boating, game drives and cultural excursions to name a few.Note: The pre-departure meeting will be held this evening at 18:00 for all joining passengers on the Okavango Wilderness Trail – 7-day tour. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at Cresta Sprayview Hotel, Victoria Falls, ZimbabweDay 3: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe – Chobe National Park, BotswanaStop At: Thebe River CampingFrom Victoria Falls we travel the short distance to the Botswana border and cross into the small town of Kasane, and on to our lodge. This afternoon we head out onto a game drive and boat cruise in the Chobe National Park. Chobe is widely known for its populations of elephant, but the park also contains lion, leopard, hyena, giraffe and a host of antelope and birdlife. The Chobe floodplains and Chobe River provide a sensitive eco system which attracts much of the wildlife of the region especially in the dry season when it is not uncommon to see between 500 and 2000 elephants on the floodplains at one time. One highlight of Chobe is the combination of wildlife, birdlife and reptiles seen along the banks of the Chobe River. We take the afternoon cruise for a unique perspective of river-side wildlife. This evening we relax and overnight at the lodge. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Thebe Lodge, Kasane, BotswanaDay 4: Chobe National Park – Gweta Stop At: Gweta LodgeFollowing breakfast, we depart for Gweta. Driving south we may be lucky to encounter elephant or buffalo alongside (or on) the road, often strays to the migratory herds which roam freely throughout the area in search of pasture and water. We stop in the small settlement of Nata for lunch or snack before continuing to Gweta. Try the optional Baobab Forest tour to see these great natural giants. The night is spent at the lodge. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Gweta Lodge, Gweta, BotswanaDay 5: Gweta - MaunStop At: Sitatunga CampAfter an early breakfast we join a guided walk through a local Tswana village to learn something of the life of the community, from schools and doctors to trading and traditions. We then depart and head west to Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Maun has experienced rapid growth in recent years and is a bustling provincial centre. Options here include scenic flights, but our first priority is to prepare for our excursion into the Okavango Delta. Our accommodation in Maun is simple guesthouse/ lodge/hotel. The afternoon is at leisure to relax with a cool beverage and pack for the Delta excursion for the following day. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Delta Rain's Sitatunga Camp, BotswanaDay 6: Maun – Okavango DeltaStop At: Okavango Delta, Maun, Ngamiland East, North-West DistrictHeading out early after breakfast we begin our excursion into the Okavango Delta. The first part of the journey is by 4x4 over rough sandy paths to the ‘mokoro’ station, where the river level reaches. Here we are introduced to the local Tswana ‘polers’, our guides for the excursion and transfer our luggage and equipment to the makoros (dug-out canoes). We travel by these shallow canoes amongst giant lily pads, tall grasses and labyrinthine channels to our camp on the edge of the Okavango. From our camp we venture out on guided walk in search of some of the prolific birdlife and larger mammals that inhabit the reserve. The whole area is a natural wetland spreading over some 1,600,000ha of northern Botswana offering a perfect habitat for the wildlife that roams here freely. The Okavango River rises in Angola (far to the north) and flows south dividing repeatedly to form an intricate floodplain of channels and swamps which then spreads out into a broad flat inland delta – the only one of its kind in the world. We enjoy the afternoon wilderness experience and for many people the feeling of being at camp overnight is an unforgettable experience.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Elephant Camp, Okavango Delta, BotswanaDay 7: Okavango Delta – Maun Stop At: Sitatunga CampThis morning we explore the surrounds on a nature walk where you have the thrilling experience of being out in the natural wilderness. This is a great way to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the wilderness and enjoy nature as it wakes for the day. After the bush we enjoy breakfast and then pack up again onto our mokoros, leaving nothing behind but footprints. Returning to our 4x4 and bidding our polers farewell, we return to Maun. The afternoon offers the opportunity to join the guide for a trip into town for a little shopping. Another popular activity here is an optional scenic flight over the ‘Delta’ for a bird’s eye view of the wilderness you have just explored by makoro and on foot. Prices depend on number of people interested but seeing the vastness of the Okavango from the air gives a further appreciation of the beauty of this part of Africa. We return to our lodge for dinner and overnight.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Delta Rain's Sitatunga Camp, BotswanaDay 8: Maun – Khama Rhino Sanctuary Stop At: Khama Rhino Sanctuary, Serowe, Central DistrictAnother early rise for our long journey skirting the greater Kalahari, where we may glimpse in the distance the vast salt pans of central Botswana to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary which we normally reach by late afternoon. In 1989 a group of local people wished to convert the Serowe Pan, previously a hunting area, into a conservation region for the rhino that inhabited the area. The ‘Pan’ was chosen because of its rhino-friendly habitat (and for its proximity to the Botswana Defence Force base for 24-hour protection against poachers). Khama is a prime habitat for white rhino, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe and with its community-based wildlife project, allows the local people to benefit from tourism. We take a game drive to catch sight of some of the rhino with guides often pointing up interesting facts about the local fauna and flora. Our last night on safari is spent at the Stevensford private nature conservancy situated on the Limpopo River in Botswana’s Tuli Block. At 3500 ha, this reserve is home to many species of antelope, crocodile, hippo, zebra, giraffe and a plethora of bird species. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Stevensford Game Reserve, BotswanaDay 9: Martins Drift – Pretoria, South Africa Stop At: Sentinel Luxury Suite HotelsOur last morning sees us joining the main route along Martin’s Drift border post. Crossing the mighty Limpopo River into South Africa, we take in the scenic views and notice changes to vegetation, infrastructure and populated areas. We arrive in Pretoria where our tour ends normally by mid to late afternoon.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastNo accommodation included on this day.
