see more details >

After a pleasant flight routing through Johannesburg, we’ll meet in Livingstone—a city on Zambia’s southern border that’s brimming with rich history. We’ll check in to the hotel at 2pm and adjust to the time change with an introduction to the countries we’ll be exploring and wildlife we’ll be learning about throughout the trip.

Day 2: Victoria Falls

Rise with the sun and fuel up on a buffet breakfast before traveling via private bus to Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. We’ll spend the day capturing these magnificent falls on camera, spending time in both Zimbabwe and Zambia to catch different angles and try our luck at spotting local wildlife. You’ll have the option to participate in popular activities, such as bungee jumping and gorge swinging from the famous Victoria Falls Bridge. On our way back to Livingstone, we’ll visit a remote Zambian village. Through this unique opportunity you’ll meet local villagers, learn about the tribal culture, and utilize your photography skills to capture the unforgettable encounter. Accommodation: Sussi and Chuma Sanctuary Retreat

Days 3: Botswana Chobe National Park

It’s time to say goodbye to Livingstone as we head deep into the southern savanna. While riding in comfortable private Jeeps, we’ll venture into the wilderness and embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure - arriving at Chobe National Park. We’ll spend the next five days exploring the unfathomable beauty of the Okavango Delta, Savuti, and Chobe National Park; scour the safari for its abundant wildlife, canoe in traditional wood-carved boats through narrow channels, and immerse yourself in the local culture of remote tribes. After busy days, gaze upon breathtaking, fiery sunsets before gathering at your lodge to share your adventures under a sky full of stars. Accommodation: Chobe Chilwero Sanctuary Retreat

Day 4: Chobe National Park
see more details >

This morning you will take a private transfer to your lodge in Chobe National Park. Chobe is one of the most famous safari lands in all of Africa, and is hope to numerous animals. In the afternoon we will board our safari vehicle in search of lion, leopard, hyena, elephant, giraffe, and a host of antelope and bird species. The Chobe National Park is an essential wildlife destination while on safari in Botswana. The floodplains provide a feeding ground for herds of elephants (it is not uncommon to see between 500 to 2000 Elephants on these plains at one time). The combination of wildlife, birdlife, and reptiles along the river's edge is a photographer’s dream, and our two game drives today will give us plenty of time to explore it. Accommodation: Chobe Chilwero Sanctuary Retreat

Day 5: Chobe National Park
see more details >

Imagine seeing more than 500 elephants, thousands of buffalo, and countless other species on a single safari drive or river cruise. Welcome to Botswana’s legendary Chobe National Park, simply the finest big-game viewing place in Africa. The Savuti is a region within the heart of the Chobe National Park that is secretly located away from the peak season crowds at the Chobe riverfront. The area is renowned for its large population of bull elephants and visiting Savuti offers the chance of witnessing the unique interaction of the resident predator species. Embark on game drives to capture the animals against the beautiful light of the Savannah – a memory that is not to be forgotten. Accommodation: Chobe Chilwero Sanctuary Retreat

Day 6: Okavango Delta

This morning we will hop on our private bush plane and head deep into the Okavango Delta, a large inland lake fed by the Savuti Channel. Here you will experience rolling savannah that attract many different animal species – including the main predators such as lion, leopard, hyena, wild dog, and cheetah. During our game drives we hope to see many of these predators who are more active in the early mornings and in the evenings. The inaccessibility of the region offers an unique experience, and being out in the wild enhances the feeling of exhilaration of being so close to Mother Nature. Accommodation: Stanley's Sanctuary Retreat

Days 7: Okavango Delta

Today experience the Okavango Delta like you never have before. The Okavango Delta is one of the most expansive wetland systems in Southern Africa and offers spectacular game viewing and a wide variety of birdlife. Canoe in traditional wood-carved boats through the narrow channels of the Delta, coming up close and personal with hippos, bathing lions, herds of zebra, and extraordinary birdlife. Be prepared for some of the most spectacular scenery and animal encounters you have ever witnessed. Accommodation: Stanley's Sanctuary Retreat
