Please Note that the below itinerary is for the camping version of this tour. The accommodated itinerary may be slightly different. Please contact us if you are interested in the accommodated tour’s itinerary.

Day 1 – Botswana – Ghanzi

Today we travel east and make our way to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. Starkly different to the Namib Desert after which
Namibia is named, the Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this
harsh environment and this afternoon we will enjoy an informative guided walk with the San community. Tonight we enjoy a dance evening that
provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.

Day 3 – Okavango Delta Excursion

The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and
lagoons is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station (approximately 1 hour transfer) where we
will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which
open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by
mokoro through the channels back to the poling station. While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be
spotted in this pristine wilderness area, including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra.

across the northern reaches of the Makgadikgadi Pans. On arrival at Nata Lodge, you have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon guided game
drive to the Makgadikgadi Pans, which forms the breeding ground for a host of water birds including pelicans and flamingo in their thousands.

distance to Victoria Falls. Today you will have the opportunity to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls at your leisure, also known by the local name of
“Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders). While much of today is dedicated to viewing the mighty Zambezi River as it drops into the Batoka
Gorge below, the bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline in the
afternoon. For the more relaxed traveller there are craft markets and coffee shops on offer as well.
