Itinerary Details

We head to the Harnas Wildlife Foundation today, which is a charitable organization and one of the few orphanages and wildlife sanctuaries for wild animals in Southern Africa. A sizable number of animals including lions, leopards, cheetahs, endangered Africa wild dogs, baboons and tortoises reside on this 10 000-hectare (24 700 acres) farm which has been transformed into a wildlife protection haven. 

The owners of this beautiful reserve have dedicated their lives to establishing the most adequate and secure home possible for abandoned or orphaned wild animals and succeeded in creating a Noah’s Ark in the African Savannah.

Today these animals are transferred to the Harnas Wildlife Foundation in order to protect them from being shot outright.

We aim to arrive in the early afternoon hours, in time for a late lunch. Your guide will then familiarize you with the area, after which you will have some time for some rest and a chance to further explore the area before the optional afternoon activities on offer here.

We’ll enjoy our dinner here at the restaurant.

A morning bush walk where we learn more about the San hunting techniques such as tracking, and stalking has been booked for you this morning.

The said walk through the veld with a small clan of San local guides and their families will show you how they gather food, start fire with sticks, and get water from underground roots. We set off from the Harnas Wildlife Foundation, Namibia today to make provision for border control as we cross into the lovely country of Botswana today. Once we clear border control and make our way into Botswana, we will have time to stop for a lunch break, and your guide will have a chance to familiarize you with the surrounding area.

Our afternoon arrival at the accommodation will give you a chance to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the heart of the Kalahari and have the opportunity to see some of the wildlife in the area.

Dinner tonight will be at our lodge in the Kalahari.

We will stock up on some food items and snacks, after our educational experience with the San in the small town of Ghanzi. We will make a short stop and enjoy a delicious lunch, in the town of Maun which is our gateway to the mighty Okavango Delta.

We will be accommodated at a lovely riverside lodge here and your guide will have a chance to familiarize you with the area before your afternoon activity. 

You are booked for a 1-hour scenic flight over the Okavango Delta. Scenic flights offer passengers the opportunity to discover the lush surroundings of the Okavango Delta by air. Not only will flyers witness the magnificent scenery of the area, they’ll also have a high chance of spotting wildlife. 

A scrumptious dinner will be at our lodge this evening.

These amazing traditional canoes (mokoros) are perfectly designed to maneuver through the narrow waterways of the delta and give us a chance to go further into the delta allowing better game viewing in this area.

Mokoros carry three people, two seated passengers and one driver. The driver stands in the rear of the canoe, (a real feat of balance), and uses a long wooden pole to propel and steer the Mokoro through the twisting channels. You will not be back at the camp until late in the afternoon and dinner will be at a local restaurant.

We enjoy our last sunset here before making our way to Nata the following day.

The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park and the Nxai Pan National Park are situated on the western border of the large Makgadikgadi salt pans, south east of the Okavango Delta, Botswana.  The Makgadikgadi Pans are one of the biggest salt pans worldwide. They are formed by two large and thousands of small pans with an area of more than 8400 km². The complete area of pan systems covers an area of more than 16000 km². The Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is situated south of the Nxai Pan National Park, and forms with its huge salt pans an impressive surreal landscape.

The name Makgadikgadi means „vast, lifeless land”. For those who prefer solitude and silence this is paradise, as even during the high season people are scarce here. The Makgadikgadi National Park is not visited so much because of its fauna, but rather its solitude, remoteness and its harsh beauty. Nonetheless, depending on the season, impressive animal populations can be viewed.

You are booked for a sunset drive into the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, followed by another lovely dinner at our lodge.

We make our way to the gateway to the Chobe National Park today; Kasane is an important point of debarkation for the nearby Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Livingstone in Zambia, and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. Quite impressive!

Spread out along the banks of the Chobe River, Kasane presents a huge collection of hotels, guest houses and campsites that accommodate all the visitors to the national park. Some are superbly located, with the breathtaking views of the river and its wildlife.

You’ve been booked for a lovely and relaxing sunset boat cruise this afternoon to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Chobe river, famous for its vast Elephant and Hippo populations, before our dinner at the lodge.

The crocodiles and hippos thrive in the forbidding Chobe River and on the land side there is often displays of different antelope, buffalo and often even the Big Cats come to the riverbanks for their sundowner drink. The Chobe River provides a very broad habitat for bird life and it is possible to see many stunning species of birds.

The afternoon is a chance to explore the town of Kasane, and perhaps visit some currency exchange bureaus as you will require US$ for our trip to Victoria Falls the next day if you haven’t already done so.

Tonight’s dinner will be at a local restaurant and will also be your final evening with our guide.

Your accommodation will assist you in organizing and booking the many optional activities available in Victoria Falls this morning. These include white water rafting, bungee jumping, Elephant interactive safaris, Lion walks, and scenic flights to mention but a few. We do recommend a short walk for some High Tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel, with this grand century old Five Star hotel boasting impressive views of the Victoria Falls Bridge and the magnificent Victoria Falls themselves.

We have come to the end of our tour.

We would recommend a late afternoon flight back home on this day, giving you some time to conduct some of the morning activities that you would like. These include bungee jumping, gouge swings, crocodile cage diving, white-water rafting, but also more relaxing activities like morning game drives, lion walks, and elephant interactive safaris.

You have the option to stay an additional night in Victoria Falls, should you wish to, and we will be more than happy to assist with the arrangements for an extended stay.
