Day 2 Windhoek/Kalahari Desert
Explore the Kalahari Desert. Learn fascinating survival skills from the local San Bushmen on an optional walk and choose to enjoy a traditional bushmen dance in the evening.

Day 3 Kalahari Desert/Maun
Prepare for a 1-night/2-day journey into the Okavango Delta. Opt to take a scenic flight over the delta.
Travel along the northern portions of the Kalahari Desert throughout the day – this is a severely arid and barren landscape, though very beautiful. After arrival in Maun, the biggest town in the Okavango Delta area, pick up any supplies needed and prepare for the journey into the Okavango Delta. Opt to fly over the delta by pre-booking the Okavango Delta Flight when booking your tour. In the evening, watch a traditional dance group performance on the poolside terrace. (B)
Day 4 Okavango Delta
Enjoy wildlife walks, birding and traditional mokoro excursions in the Okavango Delta. Learn the ways of the bush from the local 'polers'.
The excursion begins with a drive in customized safari vehicles for about 1-2 hrs to the "dock" to board a mokoro (canoe) that takes us deep into the delta. After a 1-2 hrs in the mokoro, arrive to the camp. (B, L, D)
Day 5 Okavango Delta/Nata
Travel to Nata. Opt for a sunset wildlife safari drive or bush walk in the area. Watch elephants drink from the camp's watering hole at night.
Enjoy the sunrise in the delta before travelling back to Maun by mokoro. Stop in Maun, pick up your luggage, have lunch, and continue to Nata. (B, D)
Day 6 Nata/Kasane
Travel to Kasane. Opt to embark on a sunset boat cruise or photo wildlife safari on the Chobe River.
Travel to Kasane outside the gates of Chobe National Park, home to the largest elephant population in Southern Africa. Opt for an Chobe River Sunset Cruise or Evening Photo Safari on Chobe River. For photography enthusiasts, this place is heaven with hippos, elephants, and crocodiles all living by the river. You can pre-book the Chobe River Sunset Cruise on the checkout page, or through your Global Connection Officer or travel agent. (B)
Day 7 Kasane/Victoria Falls
Opt for an early morning safari on the Chobe river, before crossing into Zimbabwe. Choose to enjoy a visit to Victoria Falls, or try a helicopter flight over them.
Pre-book the Morning Photo Safari on the Chobe River at sunrise for one last chance to see the "big five". Cross the border to enter into Zimbabwe and continue on to Victoria Falls, arriving in the early afternoon. This is a great base to see natural wonders and take part in some adventure activities. Opt to get up close (and wet from the spray) while visiting the immense Victoria Falls, raft the whitewater of the mighty Zambezi, or, for the more adventurous, bungee jump with Victoria Falls in view.
