Day 1 - Arrive Livingstone
The first day of your tour is simply an arrival day with no pre-organised activities. In order to allow time to relax and see some of the sights you may wish to add pre-tour accommodation. On arrival please ask at the reception for information on when the pre departure meeting will be held.

Welcome to Livingstone! As well as a gateway to the majestic Victoria Falls, the town, named after the great 19th century Scottish explorer David Livingstone, is also a heaven for adrenalin-pumping, heart-stopping adventure activities.

Packed with optional excursions, your time in Livingstone allows time to try out some of the many activities on offer. All the excursions can be booked from our hotel and you can even cross in to Zimbabwe for the day.

Day 2 - Chobe Area
Next we stay in the town of Kasane, the gateway to Chobe National Park which is home to the most diverse wildlife in Botswana. 11,000 square kilometres of wilderness, flood plains, forests and swamps supports all manner of animal and birdlife. To gain a different perspective on the park and to see the diversity of this incredible place, in the afternoon we have the option to board a boat for a cruise up the Chobe River to see the wildlife from a different viewpoint as the sun goes down. Game is common along the water’s edge; as we glide by you may see elephants, buffalos, kudu, bushback, hippo, giraffe and sable.

Located in north west Botswana, Chobe is a diverse area spanning from the border at the Chobe River, to the now dry Savute Channel and beyond to the borders of the Moremi Game Reserve and Okavango Delta. The park is divided into four distinctly different eco systems: Serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area, the Savuti Marsh, the Linyanti Swamps and the dry hinterland and it is famous for having one of the largest game concentrations in the African continent.

Please note: From the 1st of June 2017, you will be required to pay a Tourism Levy of US$30 when entering Botswana. This is payable by cash or credit card.

Day 4 - Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is a huge area of very slow flowing water fed by the Kavango River. The water fans out from the river into a labyrinth of channels, lagoons and palm-covered islands before evaporating over the sands of the Kalahari Desert.

We depart camp early and head to the polling station where you will board a hand-crafted mokoro (small boats with shallow drafts similar to canoes) and glide silently along the reed-fringed waterways, steered by stealthy polers who earn their living transporting travellers along the delta.

We spend the night camping on small islands in the bush, with our exact camp spot determined by the water level and local conditions at the time. This campsite has no facilities and the polers will dig a communal toilet a safe distance from the camp. You will have a chance to swim in the delta, paddle the mokoros yourself and take walking safaris through the bush and you will share a delicious meal under the stars and around the campfire.

The following morning, you will return to the mokoro station and travel back to our accommodation in Maun. This afternoon you will have the opportunity to fly over the Delta if you choose to do so.

Day 7 to 8 - Etosha National Park
We will spend two nights camping in or around Etosha National Park. Where possible we try to stay at the rest-camps inside the park for one or more nights. All the campsites inside our outside of the park are very well equipped with great facilities providing us with a great base to explore the park on our full day game drive. Etosha National Park is one of the most memorable places you will visit on this trip.

Etosha National Park is one of the best places in Africa to spot cheetah and the endangered black rhino. Keep your camera lens ready for rare antelope species, the Burchell's zebra and black-faced impalas which roam the wild savannah. You may spot the odd giraffe or two chewing through thorny acacia trees in the woodland areas. Etosha National Park is a bird watcher's paradise with some 340 species inhabiting the park at different times of the year. For a short period after seasonal rains Etosha's vast salt pan is covered by a layer of water which attracts massive flocks of pelicans, flamingoes and other wading birds. While the pan is dry it is notable for the way it dramatically changes colour during the early morning and late afternoon sun.

You will notice the strong German influence here. German is still widely spoken and it is common to find traditional breads, sausage, and other delicacies, they even hold annual beer festivals!

No tourists visit to Windhoek is complete without paying a visit to Joe’s Beerhouse, a bar and restaurant providing a mix of warm Namibian and German hospitality.

We will park at the viewpoint overlooking the canyon and from there you can take several short easy walks around the top, stopping along the way for photos.

The Fish River running through the bottom of the canyon is one of Namibia's few permanent rivers and while the flow is seasonal, beautiful turquoise pools can be seen in the distance during the dry season.

Situated on the south western tip of Africa and set between the Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town is recognised as one of the most beautiful cities on Earth.

There are dozens of amazing sightseeing opportunities to enjoy in Cape Town and in the surrounding area. You can tackle a trek up Table Mountain or take the cable car to the top for spectacular views of the city. If you have a good head for heights you can enjoy the scenery looking over Camps Bay then rather than taking the cable car, abseil 112 metres down again, but obviously this option is not one for the faint hearted!

The V&A Waterfront is the very epitome of African chic and offers a unique shopping and entertainment environment where you can soak up the cosmopolitan vibe of the city. Be sure to sample some of South Africa's famous wines with dinner and sit back with a hot cup of rooibos herbal tea afterwards.

From Cape Town, you can visit Robben Island where former South African President and Nobel Laureate Nelson Mandela was incarcerated among other political prisoners. Once a blight on the nation's history, the island is now seen as a national symbol of triumph over adversity and has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. If you want to arrange this activity, it is advised that you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Just 60 kilometres away from the centre of Cape Town you can visit Cape Point, which is part of the Table Mountain National Park. The peninsula is a largely unspoilt wilderness and home to several species of antelope, including the eland, as well as many beautiful plants species. There are two lighthouses on Cape Point which can be reached by a funicular known affectionately as the Flying Dutchman.
