11 Day Kruger, Botswana and Vic Falls

Day 1

Johannesburg – Nkambeni Camp

Leaving Johannesburg we head towards the Lowveld and our camp situated within the border of the famous Kruger National Park. On our way we pass through the southern section of the picturesque Panorama Route –famous for its breath-taking vistas. Our camp for the next two nights is a short drive from the Kruger Park Gate and has some interesting local residents that include hippo, giraffe, zebra and impala.

Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2

Nkambeni Camp

Today we explore the amazing Kruger National Park. Covering 19 485km2-60 km wide and over 350 km long, this conservation area has more than 146 mammals, 500 bird, 114 reptiles, 33 amphibian & 49 fish species. 23000 different types of plants have been recorded. We spend the day driving around the park keeping an eye out for these. There is the option of doing a night drive looking for a few of the nocturnal inhabitants or upgrading to a small vehicle for the game drive at an additional cost.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3

Nkambeni Camp – Polokwane

Today we leave the Lowveld and head on the long, scenic drive to Polokwane. Along the way we stop off at some of the best scenery in South Africa, including the ever striking Blyde River Canyon and God’s Window. The many viewpoints of the Canyon, afford us excellent photo opportunities. Polokwane, capital of impopo, is the largest metropolitan complex in the north and a major economic centre. Its proximity to the neighbouring countries of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Swaziland, as well as its convenient distance from the Kruger National Park and Magoebaskloof, makes it a perfect gateway and good destination in itself. We set up our tents on the lush green grass of our campsite located outside of the city before enjoying a dip in the lovely swimming pool.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4

Blydepoort – Palapye

After a quick replenishing of our stocks we begin our journey north toward Botswana. The small town of Palapye is situated about halfway between Francistown and Gaborone (Botswana’s Capitol). This popular ‘stopover’ town for those en route to South Africa, is well known for the Morupule Colliery coal mines which supplies Morupule Power Station, Botswana’s principal domestic source of electricity.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

Palapye – Maun

Maun is the starting point for travel into the Delta and it is from here that we set off to explore the Okavango Delta. Tonight we prepare our provisions and packs for our overnightnight excursion. We suggest bringing along a smaller daypack on your trip as this can be used to pack the supplies needed for this short excursion. Your trip leader will brief you fully on what is needed, and what to
expect prior to your trip to the Delta.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6

Maun – Okavango Delta

Here we have the opportunity to take the included overnight excursion into the Delta. After an early rise, we pack our expedition vehicle and from Maun we drive north for a couple of hours to reach the mokoro poler’s station. The Delta region is studded with many local villages where many families live in a traditional way. Some of the villages are very remote and can only be reached by the traditional mode of transport –the Mokoro. Mokoros are dugout canoes manoeuvred through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. At the Mokoro station, we meet our ‘Polers’ and pack our supplies before heading out into the waterways. After a couple of hours along the waterways, we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango.

On arrival you will meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay.  A brief introduction to the camp will show you your dome tent with twin beds and a
bush en-suite bathroom–long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Relax in the tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the Delta in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Optional Activity: Overnight Delta excursion

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8

Maun – Nata Region

We leave this beautiful part of Botswana behind us this morning as we depart to the lush campsite called Elephant Sands.

Your crew will provide you with more information.

Day 9

Nata Region – Chobe National Park
