Detailed Itinerary

Victoria Falls (Bx1/-/Dx1)

One of the seven wonders of the world, (Mosi-oa-Tunya) “The smoke that thunders”, is truly a breathtaking sight with the water of the Zambezi river falling into the gorge at 100 million liters per minute. Here at the “Adventure Capital” you can view the falls or take part in various activities from the acclaimed wildest one-day whitewater run in the world to the pure adrenaline rush of the 111 meter Bungee Jump

Chobe River Front (B/L/D)

Tonight our camp is situated on the banks of the beautiful Chobe River. This afternoon we take a sunset river cruise around some of the islands and may see huge herds of elephants coming down to the river to drink.

Makgadikgadi Pans (B/L/D)

The Shimmering saltpans of Makgadikgadi appears as a glaring white endless plain. When the rain comes a dramatic change takes place as the pans come to life with frantically feeding water birds and great herds of game. Tonight we camp near Sua Pan the breeding ground for a host of water birds. Explore the pans with open safari vehicles or on quad bike (own expense)

Bela Bela (B/L/D)

We enter South Africa and camp at Bela Bela. Discovered by the Tswana people in the 1800s and named Bela-Bela, meaning ‘the water that boils on its own’.
