Client Review

We are currently at Johannesburg airport for departure.

Jon and I would like to thank you for a wonderful tour, which will give us lifetime memories.

Your help from the very beginning and right through the process has been efficient, professional and helpful in every regard.

All transfers were seamless, all drivers and guides were well sourced. Even with the only hiccup at Chobe, you immediately responded to sort out the problem and compensate us, (and we think you overcompensated!). The helicopter ride at the Delta was the best experience we had in the delta!

The guide and the wait staff were really nice at Chobe. Our extra day activity of the Village visit was great, and on the way back from the village, the game drive started at the far end of the park, which yielded the best viewing of animals we had out of our entire stay in Africa!

Victoria Falls Island Resort was another very nice surprise. We weren’t expecting to be on an island, and Peter the manager was the best manager out of anywhere we stayed.

All in all, fantastic

Karina & Jonathan B

Tour Consultant's Overview

Karina and Jonathan were looking for a tour that included Cape Town, Botswana and Victoria Falls. I decided to find them some unique accommodation options for their stay in each of these destinations and had a lot of fun planning their tour with them. Botswana did not disappoint as they were able to divide their time between Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta and the Central Kalahari regions so they had a wide variety of safari encounters during their stay. I decided to surprise them with an island stay at the Victoria Falls River Lodge which is situated in the Zambezi National Park and offers panoramic views of the river and all of its wildlife activity throughout the day and night. I am thrilled that these two had such a wonderful time and look forward to welcoming them back to Africa soon!

The Victoria Falls is considered to be the largest waterfall in the world. See the mighty Zambezi River as it thunders over the 1700 metre wide Victoria Falls and plunges 100 metres into a narrow gorge below. The great columns of spray rising from the tumultuous falls can be seen from 80 kilometres away on a clear day. If you are lucky enough to be there at full moon, a "moonbow" can be seen in the spray instead of the usual daylight rainbow.

Day 8 to 12 Chobe Game Reserve (4 nights)

Chobe National Park on Botswana’s north west border is a pristine wilderness of open plains, baobab trees, ancient woodland, swamps and flood plains and is home to the greatest concentration of game in the entire southern African subcontinent. One of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe River forms the Park’s northern boundary. The Chobe riverfront area is most famous for its large herds of elephants and buffalo, which come down to the river in huge herds to drink during the dry winter months. During this season, one may see hundreds of elephants at one time. Other species include waterbuck, lechwe, puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying predators lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa’s premier venues for bird Safaris. A highlight of Chobe is taking a river cruise, which allows you to get up close with hippo, crocodile and a mind-boggling array of water birds. You also get really close to animals that come down to the river.

Day 12 to 15 Okavango Delta (3 nights)

Located in northern Botswana, the Okavango River is a unique natural phenomenon - flowing more than 1 000 km (620 miles) from its source in Angola, this river disappears beneath the sands of Botswana, creating a lush inland delta in the midst of this otherwise arid country.

The Okavango Delta is in a constant state of flux, expanding and contracting according to the rainy season. While some parts of the Delta remain permanently flooded, others only experience high water levels from May to September, when rainwaters from Angola reach the outer stretches of the Okavango.

Renowned for its abundant wildlife, the Okavango Delta and the areas surrounding Okuti are home to a large number of species, including many predators, as well as a number of species adapted to the semi-aquatic lifestyle, such as the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga. Lion prides, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog may be encountered, while families of hippo hide in the deeper channels and lagoons. The area supports the continent’s largest surviving concentration of elephant and buffalo, while roan and sable antelope roam the open woodlands.

This morning after your morning game drive and brunch, you will be flown by light aircraft to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. You will be met off of your flight and transferred through to your lodge. You have time to settle in before tea and the afternoon game activity.

Flight time: Okavango Delta to Central Kalahari – approx 20 minutes

Day 15 to 17 Central Kalahari Game Reserve (2 nights)

The Central Kalahari game Reserve (CKGR) is the largest, most remotely situated reserve in Southern Africa, and the second largest wildlife reserve in the world. Waist-high golden grasses seem to stretch interminably, punctuated by dwarfed trees and scrub bushes. Wide and empty pans appear as vast white stretches of saucer-flat earth, meeting a soft, blue-white sky. At night the stars utterly dominate the land; their brilliance and immediacy are totally arresting.

The park contains wildlife such as , bush elephant, white rhino, cape buffalo, spotted hyena, brown hyena, honey badger, meerkat, yellow mongoose, warthog, South African cheetah, caracal, Cape wild dog, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, cape fox, African leopard, Kalahari lion, blue wildebeest, plains zebra, common eland, sable antelope, gemsbok, springbok, steenbok, impala, greater kudu, aardvark, cape ground squirrel, cape hare, cape porcupine, chacma baboon, red hartebeest and ostrich. The land is mostly flat, and gently undulating covered with bush and grasses covering the sand dunes, and areas of larger trees.

Many of the river valleys are fossilized with salt pans. Four fossilized rivers meander through the reserve including Deception Valley which began to form around 16,000 years ago.

You are collected from your hotel by a tour guide and taken on a drive along the Atlantic seaboard via glamorous Clifton to the quaint seaside village of Hout Bay.

We then follow the coastline northwards via Simonstown, where you can visit the penguin colony of Boulders Beach. We also visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, which is dedicated to the extraordinary variety of plants found in the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Included in price Victoria Falls: Daily Activities at Victoria Falls River Lodge

A choice of two of the following game activities is included in the accommodation rate: Morning/Afternoon Game Drive and Sunrise/Sunset River Cruise.

The morning game drives head out in an open game-viewing vehicle to explore the 150,000 acres that make up the Zambezi National Park. Armed with hot beverages and a delicious supply of traditionally baked ‘rusks’, be the first to catch the ‘bush telegraph’s’ early broadcast of the previous night’s events. Alternatively, on the afternoon game drive, track a magnificent elephant herd as they move silently through the bush or admire stately giraffe as they effortlessly weave their way through spikey acacia thicket – stopping to enjoy the phenomenal sunset with sun-downers and a variety of scrumptious snacks – before returning to Camp for a delicious dinner.

Watch – from the comfort of Victoria Falls River Lodge’s private river cruiser – as the world awakes and the sun’s first rays skip and dance across the shimmering surface of the mighty Zambezi. Alternatively, for the not-so-early-birds: sit back and let the gentle ebb and flow of the Zambezi lull and relax you. Sip on a sundowner drink whilst viewing creatures, big and small, coming to the water’s edge as the skies turn molten red.

The Zambezi River is a birding hotspot and more than 400 species have been spotted at Victoria Falls River Lodge. Guided sightseeing tours of the Victoria Falls are also offered.

Included in price Chobe National Park: Daily Safari Programme at Chobe Game Lodge

Chobe's wildlife roams in abundance and diversity and it is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa.

Included in price Okavango Delta: Daily Safari Programme at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

Famed for its big cat and bird population, the Okavango Delta is a peaceful haven where animals have been protected for decades and know they will not be disturbed. Set off on a new adventure each day and get up close with elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, big cats and more.

Eagle Island Lodge is a traditional Water based camp. Glide silently on a traditional dugout canoe, a mode of transport used by locals for centuries. Explore the shallow, clear waters, drifting past brilliant waterlilies and papyrus grasses, reaching areas inaccessible by boat. Witness brightly coloured frogs, kingfishers, dragonflies or elephants feasting on the reeds. The chance to explore open waters is a unique feature of an Okavango Delta safari. Cover more ground and delve deeper into the landscape, with a chance to spot an even greater range of wildlife. Embark on a sunset barge cruise for hypnotic views as you sip a sundowner. Available during the wet season, usually May to October.

Visit neighbouring Nxhoga village for an authentic insight into the Motswana way of life. Learn about hut building, basket weaving and the fishing industry. Meet elders, chat with the children, and browse the small market, churches and bakery. Let the experienced guides take you on a trek to experience the true spirit of Botswana. Spot amazing sights close-up, from dazzling insects and swarming termite mounts to animal tracks. These small, unexpected aspects of delta life often make the biggest impression.

Fishing:
The Delta’s channels are rich with tilapia, while spotted and silver catfish can be found in the many lazy pools. African pike, infamous fighters, are a favourite snare. If you have never fished before, the Okavango Delta is the ultimate place to start. Please note: catch and release fishing only.

Relax beside your private plunge pool, watch the wildlife from your balcony, or perhaps opt for a game of chess. Spectacular sunsets are guaranteed at the Fish Eagle Bar. Keep an eye out for our ‘resident’ elephant, who loves the berries in our trees. In the evening, gather round the fire pit and share stories with our guides.

Included in price Central Kalahari Game Reserve: Daily Safari Programme at Deception Valley Lodge

A visit to Deception Valley Lodge would not be complete without experiencing a walk with the San (Bushmen). ‘Braam’ Badenhorst, one of the owners, grew up in the Kalahari with the San and several of his friends live on the reserve and are available to show guests the way they used to live and survive. Walk through a terrain that appears to the uninitiated to offer little in the way of sustenance, but is a treasure-trove of fruits, berries, tubers, barks, herbs and flowers used in cooking, medicine, ceremonies and for a plethora of other purposes. All this before we turn to the mammals, birds, reptiles and insects that form part of the fascinating panoply of their desert world.

Activities are varied. The Reserve’s extensive network of tracks make for perfect day and night driving terrain.
