DAY 4 – VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE

This morning, drive to Zimbabwe to join your private guide on an awe-inspiring exploration of Victoria Falls, which plummet 108 metres to cast up the mist that inspired their original name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders). Enjoy lunch in the town of Victoria Falls before continuing to Chobe National Park in Botswana to settle into your lodge for unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and floodplains of the Chobe River. This afternoon, set out on a river cruise or game drive that includes the opportunity to see elephant — a staggering 120,000 live in the park — along with impala, buffalo and possibly lion. Return to the lodge to relax in the comforts of your luxury accommodations and enjoy a freshly prepared meal. Later, drift to sleep, serenaded by the sounds of Africa, beneath a blanket of stars.

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero | Meals: BLD

DAY 5 – CHOBE NATIONAL PARK, BOTSWANA

Set out on a game drive at sunrise to catch the animals at the start of their day, when they are most active. You may even glimpse a leopard returning from the hunt. Later, embark on a Chobe River safari cruise and watch for crocodile and hippo, as well as elephant that come down to drink and play in the water. The park’s beautiful wetlands also lure a wealth of birdlife to the region, and you may glimpse many of the 460 species that either live here or migrate through, including raptor, vulture and waterfowl. When you return to the lodge this evening, revel in the comforts of your luxury accommodations, gather for dinner and share stories of your day.

DAY 6 – OKAVANGO DELTA

Fly to a vast private concession in the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. The afternoon is yours to enjoy at leisure with a choice of activities, such as a Ride Like a Local by seasonal mokoro (dugout canoe) on the delta or a night-time game-viewing drive, made possible on this private reserve.

Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp | Meals: BLD

DAY 7 – OKAVANGO DELTA 

Continue exploring the delta on your choice of activities, such as a thrilling, guided game drive in a customised 4×4 vehicle or a bush walk in the company of an armed, expert guide, on the lookout for Africa’s smaller denizens among the unique flora.

Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp | Meals: BLD

DAY 8 – OKAVANGO DELTA 

Fly across the Okavango Delta to your next amazing safari camp. Widely acknowledged as the “Predator Capital of the World,” this area offers some of the most exciting game viewing in Africa and is one of the best places in Botswana to see the Big Five — lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo — drawn here from surrounding regions by the lush delta. Predators include cheetah, spotted hyena and, at the very top of the food chain, large resident prides of lion. This afternoon, take advantage of game-viewing activities led by experienced guides or enjoy the vistas from your own private viewing deck.

Sanctuary Chief’s Camp | Meals: BLD

DAY 9 – OKAVANGO DELTA 

Depart on another spectacular early morning game drive. Beyond predators, the Okavango Delta draws large concentrations of elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, giraffe and impala. Enjoy a seasonal mokoro ride for a rare safari opportunity across deceptively quiet marshlands alive with crocodile, bathing hippo, birds and tiny red reed frog. If you opt for an afternoon game drive, listen for roaring lion on the hunt or spy nocturnal animals as they start out for the night. After a full day of game viewing, return to your camp to relax and enjoy a farewell dinner.
