Travel from the Kalahari towards Maun, arriving around lunch time. In the afternoon, opt to get a sneak peek of the Okavango Delta from above on an hour-long flight in a small plane. See a variety of wildlife and marvel at the vast delta basin. You can pre-book the Okavango Delta Flight extra on the checkout page, or through your Global Connection Officer or travel agent.

Day 4 Maun/Okavango Delta
Enjoy wildlife walks, a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) and birding on an overnight excursion into the Okavango Delta.
After leaving some luggage in Maun, we hop into safari vehicles and travel for about an hour to a river before pairing off and sitting down in mokoros, traditional dugout canoes, that take us deep into the delta. After a couple hours in the mokoro, we arrive to our basic bush camp in time for lunch. Set up tents and get used to the surroundings. ?In the afternoon, set off on a wildlife walk. In the evening, count the shooting stars, sing with the locals or just unwind with a sundowner around the campfire.?? The polers will join us around the campfire tonight and usually love to sing and dance… join in! (B, L, D)
Day 5 Okavango Delta/Gweta
Camp under ancient baobab trees.
Enjoy the sunrise on an early wildlife walk then return to Maun, first by mokoro, then safari vehicle, and arrive around lunch time. Pack up the Lando, then hit the road to ancient baobab trees of Gweta. We will arrive to our campsite mid- to late afternoon. Have a walk around, take pictures of the baobabs, swim in the pool and enjoy a proper shower after the night in the bush. (B, L, D)
Day 6 Gweta/Kasane
Opt to embark on a wildlife-viewing boat cruise on the Chobe River or take an open safari vehicle wildlife safari drive inside Chobe National Park.
Journey to the area of Chobe National Park, home to the largest elephant population in Southern Africa.

Day 8 Victoria Falls
Opt to visit Victoria Falls, go whitewater rafting, or take a helicopter flight over the falls.
Victoria Falls is a great base to see both natural wonders and take part in some exciting activities.
