2 nightsVICTORIA FALLS

On arrival at the international airport in Livingstone, you’ll be met by our guide for the most breathtaking introduction to Zambia: Victoria Falls. You'll spend two nights at Thorntree River Lodge, a tranquil, laid-back lodge upstream of the mighty "smoke that thunders". Why not experience Africa's adrenaline capital first-hand with a bungee jump or white water rafting trip, or take things a little easier with a guided trip to the falls or a canoe ride along the Zambezi river.

3 nightsLINYANTI

The next day, you’ll embark on a light aircraft from Livingstone and soar over the spectacular, expansive landscapes of Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. Landing in Kasane, a magical boat safari down the Chobe River awaits you, with huge herds of elephant, hippo, and crocs to spot on your journey. This extraordinary boat ride will have you feeling like one of the old colonial explorers, with nothing but staggering wildlife surrounding you. From here we’ll whisk you off to the private Linyanti Concession, with the Linyanti Bush Camp as your bolt-hole for the next three nights. You may find yourself feeling as though you’ve stepped back in time as you look out over the sweeping plains and head out on game drives to see the incredibly rare puku and wild dog.

Moremi Game Reserve

3 nightsOKAVANGO DELTA

The next stop on your luxury safari is the Khwai Concession, the lesser-explored pocket of the Okavango Delta which is right beside the Moremi Game reserve and known to have some of the best game-viewing in Africa. Perched on an island overlooking the floodplains, your tented camp really conjures that pioneering spirit. Exploring a mixture of forest sprawling plains and wetlands, you’ll observe an abundance of large game including elephant, buffalo, lion, and the elusive roan antelope. In the evenings, immerse yourselves in nature as you sit around the crackling fire, and listen out for the distinctive call of the Verreaux’s Owl. Here you'll stay at the semi-permanent Khwai Tented Camp

Okavango Delta

3 nightsOKAVANGO DELTA, XIGERA

After enjoying some more activities in the morning, you’ll fly over the shimmering waters and pulsating wildlife haven of the Okavango Delta towards Xigera. You’ll find your camp nestled amongst riverine forest across from a seasonally flooded lagoon, and everyday wake up to a cacophony of chirrups, grunts, and warbles, before a mesmerising day on the water. Together with your expert guide (many of whom are skilled photographers, so they can help you capture that perfect shot) you’ll weave through the delta in a mokoro canoe, and have the chance to see spotted necked otter, and rare birds such as the Pel’s fishing owl and wattled crane; then heading further afield in a motorboat, you’ll also come across lions, elephants, and the spotted hyena. From here, we’ll transfer you back to Johannesburg where you’ll catch your return flight home.
