This Premium Accommodated Adventure Tour offers you 14 days to discover Botswana and Zimbabwe. Begin your fourteen-day journey of discovery in Namibia and end off Johannesburg, South Africa. Equally magnificent, each region offers a unique experience of overwhelming beauty. On one hand, you have a Natural Wonder of the World - Victoria Falls, which is a magical realm of mist-soaked rainforest shrouded by the deafening roar of cascading water. On the other hand, you have Botswana and Zimbabwe, home to 70 percent of the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world. Delivering an unforgettable experience as you dance with the San (Bushmen), do a Mokoro excursion in the Okavango Delta, soak up the incredible views of Victoria Falls, go on safari in Chobe, Hwange National Park and trek Rhino on foot in Matopos National Park. From the majestic landscape of the Okavango Delta to the breath-taking water views of Victoria Falls, you will experience many sides of Southern Africa.
Safari starts in Kasane when we meet you at the border with Zimbabwe at 10am and drive into Chobe where we have an exclusive site near Ihaha. Chobe
– The first glimpse of the Chobe River – deep and dazzling in the sandy terrain – is always breathtaking. Undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else in the country. Established in 1968, the park covers approximately 11700 km2, encompassing floodplains, swamps and woodland. The Chobe River forms its northern boundary. The most accessible and frequently visited of Botswana’s big game country, the Chobe Riverfront is famous for its large herds of elephants and Cape Buffalo, which during the dry winter months converge upon the river to drink.
The Chobe River attracts thousands of animals searching for water during the dry season. The river is host to a stunning array of birdlife (Yellow Billed Storks, African Spoonbills, White Faced Whistling Ducks, Egyptian Geese, Vultures, Owls and Kingfishers, Secretary Birds, Dikkops, Herons, Eagles – especially Fish Eagles, in addition to many other birds), and a 3-hour boat cruise is taken to take advantage of this. If lucky you will see Elephants swimming in close proximity to you, in addition to the normal pods of slumbering Hippo’s, Red Lechwe, Crocodile, Impala, Kudu, Leguaans, Puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), Sable, Roan, Waterbuck and numerous other animals you can view.
The sites we stay in here are completely undeveloped areas in the ‘bush’. Everything must be taken in to these sites – even water and nothing may be left behind, so they remain pristine. They offer an untouched wilderness experience, all sites are within a few hundred metres from the Chobe River, and in the dry season you can watch stunning sunsets with a backdrop of elephants and buffalo a few minutes away from our tented camp. We will have a 3 hour boat cruise into the Park from Kasane on the 8th September 2015.
On the 9th September we drive south for 5 hours to Savuti, where we have a lovely site next to the Savuti Channel.
The Savuti Channel in northern Botswana is a famous waterway in a thrilling state of flux. For a quarter of a century, the Savuti Channel was dry, creating wide-open grassland, home to both quantities and varieties of wildlife and a legendary predator’s enclave. In 2008, the waters returned, and abundant game has congregated and adapted in its wake. Now the Marsh is once again turning into a wetland paradise. The Savute Channel once more became a deep, clear waterway harbouring hippo and aquatic life with myriad varieties of waterbirds. Wildlife, from plains game to a plethora of predators, has had to adapt to a new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it has brought with it.
In the rainy season (normally November through to April) Savuti attracts many grazers to its short sweet grasses, and a large number of Zebra and Wildebeest congregate on the Marsh. With the water flowing in the Channel, the whole outlook of Savuti has already changed drastically and vast herds of Buffalo have returned to the area.
There is a site where ancient San rock art can be seen after a small but steep climb. It is humbling to see and puzzle over and causes one to marvel at the people who previously inhabited the area. A beautiful island of 13 Baobab trees is not so well known but makes a wonderful excursion and is a wonderful site to photograph.
After 3 nights in this amazing wild life area we will drive to Moremi Game Reserve
– Contained within an area of approximately 3900 km2, here land and Delta meet to create an exceedingly picturesque preserve of floodplains – either seasonally or perennially wet, waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands and riparian, riverine and mophane forests.
This makes for spectacular game viewing and bird watching, including all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. Both Black and White Rhino have recently been re-introduced, now making the reserve a ‘Big Five’ destination.
It is the only Game Reserve inside the RAMSA listed Okavango Delta. We are first staying at a site between Khwai and Hippo Pools called Samahundu which will give us a chance to explore the Khwai River area extensively before we move south to the beautiful Xini Lagoon area for a further 3 nights. We will go on a drive through the Black Pools area of Moremi whilst here and will hope to spot cats! On the 18th September we will have an early morning drive before breakfast and driving to Maun in time for your flight out.
Chobe National Park in northwest Botswana has one of the largest game concentrations in the African continent. The Chobe National Park offers the chance to see any and all of the big game species including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, kudu, and hippo. This is also the country's first national park.
