9-day camping tour Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls
- Discover the incredible natural wonder: Victoria Falls
- Camp in the Kalahari Desert and Okavango Delta
- Discover wildlife in Chobe National Park
Begin your nine-day journey of discovery in Namibia and finish at the Victoria Falls in Zambia. Equally magnificent, each region offers a different experience of overwhelming beauty. On one hand, you have a Natural Wonder of the World: Victoria Falls, which is a magical realm of mist-soaked rainforest shrouded by the deafening roar of cascading water. On the other hand, you have Botswana, which is home to 70 percent of the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world.
This tour delivers an unforgettable experience as you dance with the San (Bushmen), do a mokoro excursion in the Okavango Delta, discover wildlife in Chobe National Park, and soak up the incredible views of Victoria Falls. From the majestic landscape of the Okavango Delta to the breath-taking water views of Victoria Falls, you’ll experience the many sides of Southern Africa on this trip of a lifetime.
Day 1 Windhoek
Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your Tour Leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details.
Accommodation: Comfort Hotel
Day 2 Windhoek to Ghanzi
Depart Windhoek early for a long drive through the eastern part of Namibia, crossing the border into Botswana and travelling into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Ghanzi is where San (Bushmen) live who still have the knowledge of an ancient lifestyle and who are eager to welcome visitors into their almost forgotten world.
Day 3 Ghanzi to Maun
Enjoy an optional morning walk with the San (Bushmen) as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation to generation before departing Ghanzi. Arrive in Maun, Botswana’s fifth largest town, after lunchtime. Once you arrive in Maun you will have the option to get a spectacular birds-eye view of the Okavango Delta from above in a small fixed wing aircraft (weather permitting).
Day 4 Maun
Today you will experience a new way of travelling– we go into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro in the same way as the local people do. A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people. Your engine is a human being called a poler. The first part of the journey is in a 4×4 vehicle to the “polling station” where the mokoros and polers are waiting. Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into the Delta begins. Then you head back to Maun again in your mokoro enjoying a last hour or two on the water while the late afternoon sun starts heading for the horizon.
Day 5 Maun to Elephant Sands
Set out for Elephant Sands, which is close to the Botswanan village of Nata. Elephant Sands is famous for its watering hole, voted as one of the top ten watering holes in Africa. At
Day 6 Elephant Sands to Chobe River (Kasane)
Continue to the small town of Kasane, which is adjacent to the Chobe National Park & Chobe River. Relish the views during your included afternoon sunset boat cruise. Take your own sundowner with you as you look for wildlife on the banks of the Chobe River.
Day 7 Chobe River (Kasane) to Livingstone (Victoria Falls)
You can’t ask for a better way to start your day in search of wild animals on your included game drive in the Chobe National Park. Afterwards, cross into Zambia and enjoy a short drive to the magnificent Victoria Falls and its charming little town.
Accommodation: Adventure Tents
Day 8 Livingstone (Victoria Falls)
Today you will have time to do some of the action-filled activities that the area offers. Bungee jump or gorge swing off the Victoria Falls Bridge that links Zambia and Zimbabwe and have a different view of the Victoria Falls at the same time.
