Oversikt

Containing in its borders the world's largest salt pans, inland delta and number of elephants, Botswana has plenty to boast about. And, happily for visitors, the country knows it. 38% of the country's landscape – which encompasses everything from savanna to swamp to the sands of the Kalahari – is protected and the travel infrastructure is among the very best in Africa. Taking in also Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls and Namibia's Zambezi region, this trip celebrates both the natural and cultural highlights of Botswana. Stay in a lodge overlooking a watering hole frequented by elephants. Jump in jeeps and set out on game drives in Chobe National Park. Paddle through the Okavango Delta in a traditional dug out canoe, and be welcomed into the villages of native Bushmen. If it's a diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures you're after, this is the trip.

Victoria Falls

Mhoro! Welcome to Zimbabwe. Your adventure begins today with a 6pm welcome meeting at the hotel. You can arrive at any time today as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time for this, consider arriving a day early so you are able to attend. If you are going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting. If you arrive early, check out some of the optional activities around Vic Falls. The Zimbabwe side of the falls offers the broadest view of this colossal natural wonder. Scenic helicopter flights are incredible – if you opt for one, choose Zambezi Helicopter Company (CAA Zimbabwe), the only operator Intrepid endorses. We recommend Wild Horizons activity centre to book any optional activities. However, we have not risk assessed all activities and only those listed in our trip notes are recommended. It is against company policy for leaders to facilitate the booking of any activities that have not been risk assessed or do not adhere to our company’s Responsible Travel policy and ethos. This includes organising transport to and from these activities in our vehicles.

Elephant Sands

Located in a private concession bordering on the Chobe Forest Reserve, the watering hole at Elephant Sands lodge attracts herds of elephant and other wildlife in season. We will spend the night in chalets with open plan bedroom, mosquito nets, ensuite bathrooms and views of the waterhole. There is a swimming pool, restaurant, and bar onsite.

Maun

After breakfast, drive to Maun, a bustling town on the edge of the Okavango Delta (355km, approximately 6-6.5 hours). Arriving here in the afternoon, you'll have the opportunity to take in this World Heritage site from above on a scenic flight in a light aircraft (an optional activity that your trip leader can help you arrange). Tonight's accommodation is in the Sedia Hotel, a comfortable hotel situated on the town's outskirts.

Okavango Delta Pan Handle

Leaving Maun after breakfast, drive to the north-western part of the Okavango Delta. This is quite a long drive – approximately 300km – and it will take about 6 hours. In reaching our vehicles secure parking area we transfer to a 4x4 for the remaining 12km to our Lodge. Our accommodation for the next 2 nights is situated on the edge of the Guma Lagoon just off the panhandle of the Okavango Delta.

Caprivi

After breakfast we take the 4x4 transfer back to our vehicle and make our way to the Namibian border. The drive is approximately 150km and will take about 4-5hours (including the time it takes to complete the immigration formalities). The drive to tonight's camp, which is on the Caprivi banks of the Kavango River, involves passing through the Mahango Game Reserve. In the afternoon we venture out on a guided excursion to the villages of the Hambukushu and Xwe Bushmen, which presents an excellent opportunity to observe village life up close.

Chobe National Park

Continue the journey along the Caprivi Strip in the newly formed Kavango-Zambezi Trans frontier park. Crossing the border back into Botswana we'll arrive at Kasane, a town surrounded by the Chobe National Park (455km, approximately 7hrs). Taking its name from the river which marks the border between Namibia and Botswana, Chobe boasts the largest population of elephant in Africa, plus birdlife, pods of wallowing hippos and more. If time permits there will be the chance to take an optional boat cruise along the river – swimming elephants are a common sight.
