9 Days

Classic Victoria Falls Botswana Tour – 3 nights Victoria Falls | 2 nights Chobe | 3 nights Okavango

Overview

Fantastic Experience – Great Communication, Attention to Detail and Follow Through!

We had a fantastic safari vacation in Zambia and Botswana, thanks in large part to Kerry’s terrific communication and thorough attention to detail. I began planning this trip 18 months ago, and although I stated up front that I was still over a year away from the safari, Kerry followed up immediately, answered my numerous questions, and helped me put together an incredible 30th wedding anniversary trip for my husband and me. We stayed in three Sanctuary Retreats camps – Sussi & Chuma in Zambia, and Chobe Chilwero and Baines Camp in Botswana. All of our transfers were taken care of, and we experienced no issues whatsoever on our trip. She even arranged for a “guide” to get us through the Johannesburg airport when we connected through to Livingstone. It was unexpected and greatly appreciated! The camp guides were knowledgeable and friendly, the food was very good and our accommodations were just wonderful. And of course the wildlife was spectacular. We had thought this would be a “once in a lifetime” vacation, but we are certain we want to return, and when we do, we will book through Pembury Tours. Many thanks!!!

Upon arrival at OR Tambo Airport, you will be met by our representative, who will hand over your travel documents and assist you to the check in area for your flight to Livingstone. You are met at Livingstone Airport by your driver and transferred to your lodge, where you spend three nights.

The next 3 days are at leisure and you can join the activities from the lodge. Besides being one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is the unchallenged adventure capital of Africa with more than 50 activities available.

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!

After breakfast, you will be transferred by road to the border. Here you cross over by ferry into Botswana and onto your lodge in Chobe, where you spend two 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.

After your last game activity and breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for your light aircraft transfer to the Okavango Delta. On arrival at airstrip, you will be met by your ranger and transferred to your lodge. You spend three nights at Baines Camp.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana with its richly diverse wildlife species is one of the premium destinations in the world for a dynamic safari experience. This 22,000 square kilometre area offers a truly unique wilderness safari in Africa. The Delta forms where the Okavango River disappears beneath the sands of Botswana. Although the periphery is semi-arid, the Okavango Delta itself is a patchwork of cool clear streams, lagoons, floodplains and forested islands. In the dry winter season vast numbers of wildlife flock to where the floodwaters infiltrate the delta, providing one of the world’s most spectacular sights. The world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve covers part of the Delta and is known as the ‘predator capital of Africa’. It is also home to the Big Five and large herds of elephant and buffalo. Famed for its big cat and bird population, the Delta is a peaceful haven where animals have been protected for decades. Watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah. You might even catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs stalking the plains. Wide grassy floodplains are host to a magnificent array of wild animals, including the specially adapted sitatunga and lechwe antelopes. Within this lacework of channels, game viewing and bird watching is frequently guided from mokoro (dugout canoes) or more commonly, environmentally-friendly fibreglass replicas. In these slender flat-bottomed craft, guests are propelled by expert polers, many of whom were born in the Okavango Delta and know the winding waterways and their inhabitants intimately.

After your morning game activitity & breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip for your light aircraft transfer to Maun Airport. From here you fly to Johannesburg and have a few hours at the airport, before you connect with your flight home.
