Okavango Delta, Chobe & Vic Falls Tour 10 Day (C 10)

Experience the highlights of Botswana as well as Zambia’s spectacular Victoria Falls “Mosi-oa-Tunya” literally meaning the ‘Smoke that Thunders’. The lodges that are used on our safaris have been specially chosen for their truly African experience and high levels of service that they offer.  This safari includes an incredible overnight excursion into the Delta, camping on a deserted island between the channels and amongst the wildlife. The tour continues to the Northern border and into the spectacular Chobe National Park. Concluding in Livingstone Zambia, the adventure capital!

Day: 2 & 3 Okavango Delta
Departure for the delta @ approximately 7:30AM. You climb on a 4X4 vehicle and bash around on dirt tracks for approximately an hour and a half (the actual time depends on the season and conditions of the road) after which you’ll be dropped at the mokoro station in the southern part of the delta. A mokoro poler will be introduced to you and will be your boatman and guide throughout the trip. Depending on the length of the trip, you can expect to spend a few hours poling on the mokoro, having lunch along the way, and doing game walks into the bush.
If you are over-nighting, the poler will find a nice campsite and help you collect some firewood for cooking. Remember, this is the bush and there are no facilities; back to basics, no showers, no toilets. While you are on the trip, remember to listen to your guide, he has grown up and lived in this area most of his life. He will not only show you many fascinating things, he will also keep you out of trouble and safe while you’re in the bush. At the end of your tour, a vehicle will pick you up at a pre-arranged time and bring you back to the camp.
