Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek

Stop At: Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport, Namibia
Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your tour leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Windhoek is a tiny capital town but with loads of interesting things to offer. One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall. Here you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance around the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.
Duration: 12 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Hotel Safari or similar:

Day 2: Windhoek to Ghanzi

Stop At: Ghanzi Trail Blazers. Reception, Ghanzi, Western Botswana/Ghanzi, Botswana, Botswana
Depart Windhoek early for a long drive through the eastern part of Namibia, crossing the border into Botswana and travelling into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Ghanzi is the area where San (Bushmen) live who still have the knowledge of an ancient lifestyle and are eager to welcome visitors into their almost forgotten world. In the evening, you can enjoy an optional ancient dance ritual performed around a campfire by the San and if the night is clear, enjoy the sparkling, starry skies for which Ghanzi is famous.
Duration: 12 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Ghanzi Trail Blazers or similar:

Day 3: Ghanzi to Maun

Stop At: Island Safari Lodge, Maun, Botswana
Enjoy a morning walk with the San (Bushmen) as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation to generation before departing Ghanzi and arriving in Maun, Botswana’s fifth largest town, after lunchtime. Once you’ve arrived in Maun you will have the option to get a spectacular birds-eye view of the Okavango Delta from above in a small fixed wing aircraft (weather permitting). Looking down on the Delta from the aircraft, you will have a fair idea of the magnitude of this massive mix of land and water with its intricate system of channels and islands. You might also see families of elephant, giraffe, and herds of buffalo or even hippos from the air. If you skip the flight, you will have the chance to kick back and relax at the lodge.
Duration: 12 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Island Safar Lodge or similar:

Day 4: Maun (Okavango Delta)

Stop At: Okavango Delta, Maun, Ngamiland East Botswana
To ensure the best Delta experience for our clients we have implemented two different styles or means of exploring this unique eco system. Due to the changing water levels in the Delta and dry seasons we will either explore the Delta on a Mokoro(boat) or on a 4x4 open vehicle game drive.

Mokoro: Today you will experience a unique way of travelling into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro. The mokoro is used by local people as means of transport. You will be transferred to the ‘’polling’’ station either with a motorized boat or a 4x4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.

A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people. The mokoro is steered by a ‘’poler” standing at the back, manoeuvring the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.

Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends on the time of year and water levels of the Delta. You will stop for lunch at an island and enjoy a nature walk of a few hours. Then you head back to Maun, again in your mokoro enjoying the last hour or two on the water while the late afternoon sun starts heading for the horizon.

The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May

4X4 Open Vehicle Game Drive in Moremi Game Reserve: Departing from Maun early morning, we are destined for the Blackpools and Xini Lagoon areas in Moremi Game Reserve.

Once past the Buffalo Fence and inside the Delta area, 50km from Maun, we start our Delta experience. You can expect a full day of exploration in the search of wild animals, interesting and varied landscapes in this untamed African bush. Lunch will be done en-route and you will have the opportunity to take exquisite photos as Moremi is well known for teeming bird life, elephants, buffalo, hippo, lion and if you are lucky leopard (including various antelope species).

What makes Moremi unique is that it was the first tribal land to be proclaimed by a local African tribe in 1963 as a wildlife sanctuary.

During the dry season, a congregation of all bird and wildlife species, along with permanent rivers and water holes makes Moremi Game Reserve one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences!

This experience will only be conducted if the water levels are too low for our travellers to have a proper Mokoro Delta experience. The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May.

Africa4us is deeply committed to protecting the environment and we make sure that our tours reflect this commitment. During the years of conducting tours in the Delta, we have experienced that the human footprint being left behind has a negative effect on this extremely sensitive ecosystem therefore, we do not include an overnight experience in the Delta. We believe that our included Delta experience gives one the same adventure with less impact on the environment.


Duration: 4 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Island Safar Lodge or similar:

Day 5: Maun to Elephant Sands

Stop At: Elephant Sands, Farm PP1, Nata Ranches, Nata, Botswana
Set out for Elephant Sands, which is close to the Botswanan village of Nata. Elephant Sands is famous for its watering hole, voted as one of the top ten watering holes in Africa. Here you can expect to see animals such as wild dogs, different antelope species and of course elephants that walk through the campsite searching for fresh water. This will probably be the closest you will get to these wild animals on foot. With luck on your side, you may have the wonderful and unique experience of sitting in front of your tented room, watching elephants and other animals come and go to quench their thirst at the

watering hole while you sip on a sundowner yourself.
Duration: 12 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Elephant Sands or similar:

Day 6: Elephant Sands to Chobe River (Kasane)

Stop At: Thebe River Safaris, plot 706 Presedant Avenue, Kasane, Botswana
Continue to the small town of Kasane, which is adjacent to the Chobe National Park & Chobe River. Relish the views during your included afternoon sunset boat cruise. Take your own sundowner with you as you look for wildlife on the banks of the Chobe River. Game such as elephant, buffalo, kudu, bushbuck, hippo, giraffe, and sable are commonly seen along the river edge, and it is a birdwatcher’s paradise during the summer months. (You have an opportunity to go on an optional photo safari at your own expense, however, you would forfeit the included afternoon sunset boat cruise).
Duration: 12 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Thebe River Safaris or similar:

Day 7: Chobe River (Kasane) to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Stop At: Victoria Falls Zimbabwe
Today you will have time to do some of the action-filled activities that the area offers. Bungee jump or gorge swing off the Victoria Falls Bridge that links Zambia and Zimbabwe and have a different view of the Victoria Falls at the same time. This bridge is constructed to carry railway, road, and foot traffic. For an adrenaline activity, closer to the Zambezi River, choose a half day or full day white water rafting adventure. Many of our groups opt to spend their final evening together aboard a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River with game-viewing, beautiful scenery, and an open bar. We recommend that you book an extra day or two post-tour to make the most of your stay.
Duration: 12 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Phezulu Lodge or similar:

Day 8: Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls)

My wife and I just completed the 8 Days Okavango Delta & Vic Falls Accommodated Adventure with Africa4us. It is a 3-star tour where you live in relatively comfortable huts/tents/resorts/camps on a group tour and therefore can visit especially Botswana at a relatively affordable

Dear Niels, What an honor for us to receive your review on a dream coming true to Visit Botswana, a country close to our heart. Thank you for informing us about the safety deposit box, USB ports, and other valued comments. These important issues are taken care of as we speak. Many thanks for helping us, to stay on top and grow with you. Your suggestions are valued by us and seen as very important. You have experienced from Windhoek Namibia, a country where 80% is seen as desert (not all arid but still desert), to Botswana in the Kalahari Desert. Two countries where you really had the honor of ruffing it up premium style. Thank you for a beautiful attitude toward the very special Ghanzi where bushman is still willing to share with us the way their ancestors used to live. I cannot agree with you more on how special Elephant Sands is with its perfect mud hole to help the elephants with the important task of covering themselves with mud to prevent parasite illnesses. This being one of the reasons for elephant deaths all around the world. As you know elephants drink on average a hundred and fifty liters of water per day. Not an easy task in the desert to provide this scarce commodity, still, Elephant Sands contribute water successfully to these animals that literally come in 24/7 all year round. Other animals rarely come in, as the Elephants dominate the area, and as mentioned it is a mud hole for a specific purpose and water for these animals is provided via other means. Another valued point in your review is the morning game drive in Kasane. We are still fortunate in Africa to be able to go to relatively big natural areas where we can hunt animals with our eyes, and when seeing them, experience bliss like we cannot experience it in a zoo. Wishing you could see more of them in their natural habitat, but as you know, animals do not stick to an itinerary. Again, thank you for your reviews and attitudes towards this amazing adventure, we are looking forward to seeing you in Africa again. Safe travels Africa4us
