After your arrival in Maun, take a light aircraft across the Okavango Delta’s maze of waterways to the Xakanaxa area of the Moremi Game Reserve. Spend two nights on a secluded wilderness island and explore the waterways by mokoro (dugout canoe) keeping an eye out for predators and game as you go. Continue your journey by light aircraft across the spectacular vistas of the Delta to Moremi Crossing.

Enjoy game viewing by mokoro or on foot, and search for signs of hippo, crocodile, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, many antelope, lion, leopard and perhaps even wild dog and rhino. Continue into Chobe National Park, famous for its large herds of elephant and wide variety of wildlife. Take a thrilling boat ride along the Chobe River before relaxing with a sundowner and watching as the herds of elephant and antelope congregate to drink. By road and boat continue into Zambia, arriving at the spectacular Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. Try some optional adrenaline pumping activities such as white-water rafting or bungee-jumping, or relax and watch as the sun sets by the Falls before travelling to Livingstone and your onward flight home.
