Days 2-3: Windhoek & Ghanzi
Windhoek - Ghanzi - Maun (Botswana). Today we cross the border to Botswana, stopping for the night at Ghanzi, a town in the Kalahari Desert home to the famous San bushmen.

Day 4: Okavango Delta
Maun - Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta stretches across thousands of kilometres and is home to hundreds of bird and animal species, which we'll discover on our 2-day excursion. From Maun, we drive north to embark a traditional Delta mode of transport - the Mokoro, a dugout canoe pushed through the waters with poles by local guides. They'll steer us along the waterways to our mobile camp at the heart of the Delta. After settling in at the camp, enjoy a drink in the common tent or explore the area with Mokoro trails and guided walks.

Day 5: Okavango Delta

Overnight: Maun | Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6: Nata Region
Maun - Nata Region. Departing the Delta, we head through uninhabited plains for the Nata region, where we find the Elephant Sands campsite. Upon arrival, you may choose between a game drive or a bush walk in this expansive region, where elephants, giraffes, and more roam freely.
Overnight: Nata Region | Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Days 7-8: Chobe National Park
Nata Region - Chobe. Today we drive north to the town of Kasane, where the Chobe River borders Botswana, Namibia, and Zambia. We set up camp on the banks of the river, and the next morning is free to visit Kasane, or to just have a lie-in.
Our next overnight excursion begins that afternoon as we leave for Chobe National Park. On the game drive to our campsite, keep your eyes peeled for the elephant herds, antelopes, and Kenya's national bird, the lilac-breasted roller. We then spend the evening in a wild bush camp, surrounded by the sounds of nature.

Chobe - Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). We rise early to continue our game trek, before packing up camp, returning to Kasane, and moving onwards to the Botswana-Zimbabwe border. When we've crossed into Zimbabwe, it's only a short drive to the town of Victoria Falls. Our campsite is in the town centre, just 20 minutes' walk from the entrance to the Falls, a stunning World Heritage site also known as a Natural Wonder of the World. After hearing about the adventure activities available, spend the afternoon at leisure in town or visiting the Falls.
