Okavango Delta, Botswana and Victoria Falls - 2 August to 17 August 2018
This Fully Guided 15 night small group Safari is for people who like the idea of an intimate wildlife viewing and photography experience in the pristine environment of the Okavango Delta made famous by many television documentaries.
You start with a recovery night at a Lodge in Botswana after your overnight flight into Africa. Next morning you start your mobile safari in the iconic Delta.
You will sleep under canvas in the mobile safari tradition of yesteryear and move every three days, sampling a variety of ecologies on offer in Botswana.
Whilst this is technically a camping safari, there are no great hardships. Your entourage includes a tour leader, guide/driver, chef, assistant chef and butler. Your ensuite bathroom includes a longdrop toilet and bucket shower which the staff will make ready with water to your liking at any time.
On "moving day" you start a leisurely drive just after breakfast. You will enjoy morning tea and picnic lunch on the road as it were; in the African bush. Meanwhile the camp staff will be busy breaking camp, moving everything and re-establishing camp in your next location. The tents will be arranged in the same order so it will be easy to find yours amongst the half dozen or so in camp.
Whilst this safari keeps some traditions alive, we've literally smoothed out the wrinkles of the camping experience of a hundred years ago. The beds are solid and amazingly comfortable. The tents are sealed against insects and there is even LED lighting.
This is our favourite safari experience.
After the mobile safari you will enjoy the contrasting experience of a classic African lodge on the banks of the Chobe River. The Chobe National Park is famous for the huge herds of elephants that seek sanctuary from poachers along the banks of the huge river that joins the Zambesi just downstream. This part of the river also teems with crocodiles, fish, and waterfowl.
After this we cross the Zambesi into Zambia and drive to The River Club. The River Club is a tranquil oasis on Zambia’s mighty Zambezi River and the perfect location for a visit to the renowned Victoria Falls - a World Heritage Site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. A host of activities await young and old, on property as well as around the Victoria Falls.
Located a short distance from the historical town of Livingstone, The River Club forms a perfect end to a safari circuit in Southern or East Africa.
