Why book this trip?

Nearly a fifth of Botswana's landscape is designated for wildlife protection: we enter Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve to track Africa's greatest animals in their natural habitat. We also stay on a houseboat on the Okavango Delta, a huge freshwater oasis in the Kalahari desert, and visit the raging Smoke that Thunders - Victoria Falls.

    Itinerary

    Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

    Day 1 - Join Tour in Maun

    Our tour starts in Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. After checking in to our hotel, your afternoon is free to relax. You may choose to take a stroll around the town, where modern buildings and native huts stand side-by-side. Originally a rural village, it has rapidly developed into Botswana's 'tourism capital'. However, the town has managed to retain much of its rural atmosphere and you may well see tribesmen bringing their cattle to sell at the market.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 2 - Drive to Okavango PanHandle houseboat

    An early start this morning to get on the road for a long drive to the west side of the Okavango Delta Panhandle, where we will board the houseboat, our home for the next three nights, in time for lunch. During this trip we will travel in customised, open-sided land-cruisers. The vehicles are perfect for the game viewing opportunities throughout the trip but can be a bit brisk and windy during the longer travel days, so ensure you bring some layers for these days your Explore leader will provide blankets to make the journeys as comfortable as possible. The roads through Botswana can vary in quality and some days will be slow and bumpy but the scenery and chances to escape the masses more than makes up for this.

    Once aboard the houseboat, the accommodation is very comfortable, with eight bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Each room has glass doors sliding open on to the wilderness of the remote panhandle area, while on the deck above are seating areas from which to enjoy the sunsets and listen to the birds. Due to seasonal variations in the level and strength of the river, the houseboat itself remains securely moored for much of the year, whilst we explore the river on smaller launches. However, the amount of water that falls in the catchment area can be highly variable and occasionally, conditions may allow the houseboat itself to cruise in the Delta.

    The next couple of days are spent enjoying this spectacular setting. During our time on the river, there is a good possibility of seeing a variety of game. On our launch, we may cruise past submerging pods of hippos, while crocodiles bask in the shallows and on the riverbanks. While drifting along, it is not hard to imagine yourself as David Livingstone, exploring Africa all those years ago.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Boat

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 3 - Optional boat trips to search for the plentiful wildlife; sundowners

    During our second day aboard the houseboat, our itinerary is flexible. A typical day involves one or two trips out on the launch to take in the wildlife and visit the surrounding area. Back on board, there are plenty of opportunities for bird watching. Local fishermen are often seen aboard their traditional dugout canoes, known locally as Mokoros. The golden light of late afternoon can also be enjoyed with a traditional sundowner in the houseboat's bar. As this is a day at leisure you can choose how much or how little you do today.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Boat

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 4 - Visit to Tsodilo Hills; home to thousands of bushman rock paintings

    Today, we'll visit the intriguing and sacred World Heritage Site of the Tsodilo Hills. The San Bushmen community believe the hills are the site of the first creation and painted an astonishing 4000 rock paintings across 350 sites marking the area's significance. Here, four impressive rocks jut out of the expanse of the surrounding land, and it is believed by the San Bushmen that the largest of the rocks is the 'man', the second largest the 'woman', and the smallest the 'child'. The fourth rock, which stands apart from the others, is said to be the male's first wife. Some of the paintings are thought to be over 20,000 years old, and as well as the chance to see ancient rock paintings, the hills offer vast views across the countryside below. We'll spend around two hours exploring the area along the walking trails, as well as stopping for a picnic lunch before returning to the houseboat for a relaxing evening.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Boat

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 5 - Drive through Namibia's Caprivi Strip to Livingstone

    This morning will be a very early start to ensure enough daylight hours for the long journey to Livingstone. Today's total journey time is approximately nine hours depending on time spent at the border crossings, and will of course include comfort breaks and a lunch break.

    The drive takes us through north to Namibia's Caprivi Strip, before heading to Livingstone in Zambia. The Caprivi Region has a colourful and interesting history, playing a central part in the Berlin Conference of 1890. Named after German Chancellor General Count Georg Leo von Caprivi di Caprara di Montecuccoli, the strip was once administered by the British before it was swapped for Zanzibar with the Germans at a time of great European political manoeuvring.

    A late afternoon arrival to Livingstone provides just enough time for a refreshing sundowner at our lodge accommodation overlooking the Zambezi River.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Lodge

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast & Lunch

    Day 6 - Tour of Victoria Falls, free time in the afternoon

    Often referred to as the adventure capital of Zambia, Livingstone is most famous as being home to one of the natural wonders of the world - Victoria Falls.

    This morning we'll visit the falls from the Zambian side of the river where the Zambezi River plummets over a sheer cliff wall spanning more than 1676 meters and dropping approximately 100 metres into the abyss below. The natives named the waterfall, Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning 'the smoke that thunders' because of the plumes of water vapour that rise like smoke into the sky above the falls, accompanied by the deafening roar.

    This afternoon is free to relax, or you may choose to book a two hour game drive in the Mosi-oa- Tunya National Park in search of white rhino. Alternatively, there is the option to take a scenic flight over the falls or go white water rafting in the Zambezi.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Lodge

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 7 - Game Viewing in Chobe National Park

    Today, we cross the border once again when we take a ferry over the Zambezi River back into Botswana, where we will make our way into the Chobe National Park. Famed for its beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife and magnificent golden sunsets, Chobe is the heart of elephant country and is home to approximately 120,000 of the giant creatures. After a stop for supplies and lunch, we will head out on an afternoon game drive.

    Although simple in style, our camping spot for tonight allows us to fully appreciate the wild setting. To the high demand in Botswana, all campsites for the next seven nights are booked two years in advance to ensure that we get the best positions in some truly spectacular spots.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 8 - Full day of safari in Chobe

    We'll maximise our time today to ensure we make the most of game drive opportunities. We'll head out in the morning and again in the afternoon, for the chance to spot huge trumpeting herds of elephants in and around the river. Other mammals to be seen are buffalo, kudu, eland, waterbuck, sable and roan antelope, zebra, lion, cheetah, leopard, impala, reedbuck and the rare Chobe bushbuck. In the river are hippo and crocodile and the waters teem with bream, barbel and tiger fish (freshwater barracuda). The Explore leader will decide on the exact running times of the day, and lunch arrangements, depending on the weather conditions and the season to ensure the best viewing.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 9 - Game drives in the Savuti area

    Today as we will travel south, we'll explore the interior area of Savuti with its sweeping plains, rolling grasslands and marshes which are fed by the erratic Savuti Channel. The channel ran dry in 1982, changing the lives of all wildlife on the plains as the ground baked in the African sun, and remained dry for over 20 years until 2008 when the water once again began to flow attracting animals back in high numbers. We'll have time to watch the herds that live in and around this area including lions, elephants and possibly the leopard, plus an abundance of bird species including the bee-eater and kori bustards.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 10 - Drive to Moremi Game Reserve

    Leaving our Savuti camp, we continue over dirt roads into Moremi Game Reserve - one of Botswana's most diverse reserves in terms of scenery and wildlife. Tucked into the north-eastern section of the Okavango Delta, Moremi is thought to be the country's most beautiful game land, and is rated as one of Africa's greatest wildlife sanctuaries. This vast area is a mix of permanent swamps, islands, forests and dry land; an ornithologist's paradise. Birdlife and larger mammals can often be spotted on the flood plain, including elephant, giraffe, zebra and ostrich, as well as predators like lion, leopard and wild dog.

    For the next two nights we will be camping in the northern Khwai River area where the waters feed an abundance of flora and fauna, including the frequently-visiting wild dog. Hippos are often heard by night too!

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 11 - Wildlife viewing in Moremi Game Reserve

    Over the next couple of days, early mornings and late afternoons are devoted to game viewing. Here in the Okavango, silence reigns, broken only by the roar of a lion or the harsh cry of a fish eagle.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 12 - Drive to Xakanaxa in the Okavango Delta

    The mighty Okavango is the third largest river in southern Africa. The delta area covers 16,000 square kilometres and is made up of crystal clear channels, countless fleeting lakes and ever-changing islands. The waters flows down in a south-easterly direction from the Angolan highlands, over 1000 kilometres away, taking up to six months to reach the delta area which floods on a perennial annual cycle.

    Remaining in the Moremi Game Reserve, today we drive further into the Delta area to our camp at Xakanaxa, where we will spend the next two nights. This exceptional geography and topography attracts amazing wildlife to the waterways and we'll begin game viewing on our arrival.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 13 - In Xakanaxa area of Moremi Game Reserve

    Today, we intend to spend the whole day in this unspoilt wonderland. Hippo, crocodile and red lechwe are easy to spot. Bird lovers can look out for fish eagle, jacana, kingfisher, heron, dtork, rgret, eeaver and bee-eater; just some of the magnificent species found here.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 14 - Drive to Maun; take a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta

    After an early morning game drive, we continue eastwards enjoying the vastness of the surrounding lands, until we reach Maun at lunchtime.

    This afternoon, there may be the opportunity of an optional game flight over the Okavango Delta depending on the weather conditions.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 15 - Tour ends in Maun

    Climate

    Botswana's regional characteristics, from fertile areas in the east to waterless desert in the centre and south, and a vast delta in the north-west, make for extremes of temperatures and highly variable rainfall.

    Climate

    With a staggering 300 days of sunshine each year, Namibia is a year-round destination, although some may prefer to avoid the heat of high summer. The cold Benguela current keeps the Atlantic coast of the Namib Desert cool and rain-free for most of the year, with a thick coastal fog that lends a mysterious edge to the area. January and February are the hottest months, when daytime temperatures in the heart of the Namib can exceed 40°C (104°F), but nights are usually cool. Winter nights can be fairly cold, but days are generally warm and pleasant.

    Climate

    The main rainy season is from January to March. Rain is widespread and generally falls in the form of a thunderstorm in the late afternoon; grass tends to be long and there is more water about so game is more dispersed. Otherwise it is dry, with low humidity for most of the year. Temperatures reach around 29°C during the day with quite cold nights throughout the year. Early dry season is the most pleasant time for temperatures and the best for bird watching.

    Clothing

    Clothing should be lightweight. However, a wind/waterproof jacket, a warm fleece or sweater and thermal underwear for night time are strongly advised, as nights, early morning game drives and longer journeys can be very cold, especially in winter (April to August).
    We suggest that during the winter months you take a number of layers to combat the cold which can then be removed as the day warms up. Brightly coloured and white clothing is not suitable for game viewing. You may like to bring a swimming costume for the hotels with pools.

Binoculars are essential for game viewing and a 300mm lens is recommended for photography. Tents have sewn-in mosquito screening so nets are not required.
    Camera batteries can be charged in Maun and Livingstone, whilst there is also a charging facility on our safari vehicle. We do however recommend that you bring spare batteries.

    Accommodation notes

    This tour uses a great mix of accommodation, affording us a real flavour of one of Africa's most beautiful countries. We start and end our trip in a comfortable, mid-range hotel in Maun. On the Okavango Panhandle we spend three nights on a houseboat - the boat has a lower deck with en-suite cabins and upper deck with a bar/dining area and an open seating area at the rear. In Livingstone we stay in bungalows on the banks of the Zambezi. In the Okavango Delta and game reserves of Botswana we enjoy the experience of camping under the African sky. Our campsites are simple enough to give the feeling of really camping out in the African bush, yet with the comforts of a proper toilet, bucket shower and even camp cots for our two man tents. Mattresses, fitted sheets, sleeping bags, pillows and blankets are also provided. Camp assistants take care of all camp chores so no participation is required.
