Day 1
After your arrival in Victoria Falls and a transfer to your hotel, you have a wide variety of optional activities at our disposal. In the late afternoon, enjoy an optional sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, where you stand a chance to see some of the animals and birds that live in the Victoria Falls National Park while enjoying a sundowner drink.

Day 2
After breakfast discover why the Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders on Earth as you explore it on foot. 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”. Afterwards, visit a craft market, where you can purchase or look at handmade crafts of the local inhabitants (optional). Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure or participate in other optional activities.

Day 3
Your adventure continues with a drive to the Chobe National Park, the second largest National Park in Botswana. Your lodge is located directly on the banks of the Chobe River. The Chobe National Park is home to the highest elephant concentration on Earth and counts undoubtedly to one of the most spectacular national parks in Africa. The riverine forests and floodplains support a multitude of game species, which in turn attract predators such as lion, leopard and hyena.

Day 4
The optional activities in and around the Chobe National Park mainly revolve around the spectacular wildlife. Besides being Botswana’s second largest park, the Chobe National Park boasts the largest elephant concentration on Earth and is the habitat of all large African predators as well as a vast variety of antelope species. With over 500 different bird species, the park is a haven for birders. Use the day to view the wildlife on an optional game drive in the early morning and with an optional boat cruise in the late afternoon.

Day 5
After breakfast, you depart Kasane and travel south to the mesmerizing Makgadikgadi Pans. This natural phenomenon represents the largest clay pans on earth and changes the landscape into a wonderland of surrealistic beauty. Its remoteness and inaccessibility all add to the mystique, and one has not enjoyed the full charm of Botswana without having had a taste of its magical impact. Relax beside the pool or enjoy an optional guided nature drive to the pans.

Day 6
After an early breakfast, you travel via Maun and onwards via rugged bush roads towards the concession bordering the Moremi / Khwai Reserve to the east, an area that you will explore in detail over the next days. En route to our camp, which you will reach in the late afternoon, you have the opportunity to see a variety of game species but can also marvel at the untouched traditional lifestyle of the Botswana people that inhabit the area. Once at our camp, you have the rest of the day at leisure and can relax in the pristine nature that surrounds the Camp.

Day 7
Today you may wish to take a guided excursion into the Moremi Game Reserve, situated south of the Okavango Delta. It covers about one-third of the entire Delta and counts undoubtedly to the top wildlife reserves in Africa. The giant Mopane forests contrast beautifully with the wide open spaces of the Khwai floodplain, while the seasonal pans, salt pans and rivers attract game and bird species of immense proportions. In the late afternoon, you return to the lodge.

Day 8
Your journey takes you further west into the Kalahari Desert, the largest sand mass on Earth that stretches north over no less than nine different African countries. Your lodge is situated close to Ghanzi on a private nature reserve overlooking water-filled pan, promising you an excellent game viewing experience. In the afternoon you can experience an optional game drive or enjoy a bush walk, after which you enjoy dinner on the raised platform overlooking the waterhole.

Day 9
This morning you travel to the Botswana border post and travel into Namibia, your lodge is situated in the Namibian part of the Kalahari Desert. Enjoy an optional game drive or relax in the Namibian bush to recollect your memories of the fantastic adventure that has passed.

Day 10
After breakfast, you travel back to Windhoek or the international airport, where your tour ends. Alternatively, continue your tour into southern Namibia with the Magical South tour.
