Victoria Falls Chobe Delta – 3 nights Cape Town | 3 nights Sabi Sand | 1 night White River | 2 nights Victoria Falls | 2 nights Chobe | 2 nights Okavango Delta | 1 night Johannesburg
I bought a Cape Town (Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel) + Kruger Park (Dulini River Lodge) + Victoria Falls (Royal Livingstone) + Chobe Park (Ngoma Lodge) + Okavango Delta (Shinde Camp) 2 weeks tour with Pembury Tours and I must say that I was very happy with their services at every moment and I recommend them. I started asking for quotations 18 months before I travelled, I had to postpone the tour, I asked for new quotations one year later and they still maintained their offer in their files, rebuilt the whole offer in one day, gave me very good advice on every detail I needed, their wise lodges selection, activities… The quality of the services provided by Pembury and their representatives (drivers, guides, extra activities etc.) at every place and the accommodation I had was superb. Also, their advices (topics for the trip, recommended restaurants…) were very helpful. All I can do is thanking Ms. Tammy, who was in charge of my tour for all the good services I have received.

Your travel documents will be handed to you and you will be assisted through customs and onward to domestic departures for your flight to Cape Town. Upon arrival at Cape Town airport, you will be met by a representative who will transfer you to your Cape Town hotel.
Explore the Mother City and the Fairest Cape – from the oldest buildings in South Africa to trendy waterfront shopping; from majestic Table Mountain to sun drenched beaches; and from dramatic seascapes to verdant vineyards. Cape Town regularly tops many lists of world must-visit destinations and Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain has recently been voted one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Cosmopolitan and fashionable, the relaxed atmosphere and pavement café culture give Cape Town a Southern European feel – but with a distinctive African twist.
You enjoy an early breakfast at your hotel before checking out. You are collected and transferred to the airport where you check in for your flight to Nelspruit. Upon arrival at Nelspruit airport you are met by a representative who will transfer you to the lodge.
Forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Reserve has no fences and the wildlife is able to cross freely between the Sabi Sands and the rest of the Greater Kruger National Park. The safari experience in the Sabi Sand is highly personalised because game drive vehicles have exclusive traversing rights in their area. The Sabi Sand Reserve is a remarkable natural sanctuary known for its exceptionally high concentration of animal and bird life. Close contact encounters are guaranteed as the animals are not threatened by the presence of vehicles thanks to sound conservation management policies. Safaris are led by experienced rangers coupled with local Shangaan trackers. With exceptional sightings of leopard (usually the most elusive of cats), lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo during game drives – visitors are never lacking in exciting photographic content.
After your morning game drive and breakfast you are collected and transferred by road to your accommodation in the White River area. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax in the gardens of your lodge.
This morning you are collected and transferred to Nelspruit Airport for your flight to Livingstone Airport. Upon arrival at Livingstone Airport, you are transferred to The Royal Livingstone.
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. The Victoria Falls is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and travellers can access the falls through either the town of Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side or from Livingstone in Zambia.
This morning you enjoy a helicopter flip. You then return to your hotel before you are collected again and transferred to the Kazungula border. You will take a ferry across to the Botswana side of the river where you are met by a representative and transferred to your lodge in the Chobe National Park. You will enjoy one activity in the park this afternoon.
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 morning game activity and breakfast you will be transferred to the Kasane Airport for your light aircraft transfer to the Okavango Delta (the exact timing of the transfer and flight will only be confirmed by Ngoma Safari Lodge). You are met at Kasane Airport and assisted to your flight. On arrival at the airstrip, you will be met by your ranger and transferred to your lodge.
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.
Today you enjoy your last game experience in the Delta and then breakfast before you are transferred to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Maun. Upon arrival at Maun airport you head to the domestic departures to check in for your flight Johannesburg. You arrive at Johannesburg airport this afternoon and will make your own arrangements for your time in Johannesburg.
Today you have at leisure – you are transferred to the airport this evening where you meet up with a Bidair representative who will assist you to check in and boarding for your international flight
