8 Days Okavango & Chobe Trail (North) - Camping (NJV)

8 Days Okavango & Chobe Trail (North) - Camping (NJV)

Countries Visited: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe.

On our camping tours you will be staying in two-man dome tents. We supply a mattress and you supply your own sleeping bag. The accommodated tours stay in traditional huts, permanent tented camps and hostel-style rooms.

Included are three hearty meals a day, (unless otherwise specified). Vegetarians are easily catered for and they're always impressed by our varied menu. Our guides can produce miracles on a camp-stove. Special dietary requirements can be catered for, but only by special request. In East Africa it is more difficult to cater to certain requirements.

Day 1 Botswana - Palapye:

We depart Johannesburg heading north to Botswana. After border formalities we continue towards Palapye, previously known as Phalatswe, where we'll spend our first night. Palapye is located on the banks of the Lotsane River.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner.

Day 2 Khama Rhino Sanctuary - Maun:

This morning we visit the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, a community based wildlife project, established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhino. We arrive in Maun in the afternoon and prepare for the Okavango Delta. As our transport is in small planes the limit on personal luggage is a maximum of 10kg, for most people this means repacking! Do not forget your cameras! In the late afternoon there is sometimes time to visit a local Crocodile Farm.

Optional Activity: Crocodile Farm

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Day 3/4 Okavango Delta:

We leave the truck in Maun and take transit in to the Delta on a large 4x4 vehicle. During high water we may also take boats. We then join the local people of the Delta and finally set up our bush camp for the next 2 nights. During our time in the Delta we enjoy the best nature has to offer. We go on nature walks and If possible will explore the Delta by mokoro. The Delta is the world's largest inland delta. The Okavango River has no outlet to the sea, so it empties into the sands of the Kalahari Desert, irrigating some 15,000 square km's. This is a truly spectacular and unforgettable experience where wild animals are not familiar with people.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Day 5 Gweta:

We leave the Delta behind us and travel east to Gweta, which is located halfway between Maun and Nata, near the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The area is also full of Baobab trees, these large trees are often extremely old and there are many local fables in which they play a part.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Day 6 Kasane - Chobe National Park:

Today we head north to Kasane, on the banks of the Chobe River. Apart from being the 2nd biggest National Park in Botswana, Chobe NP is renowned for its high population of migratory elephants. The afternoon is spent game viewing on a river cruise, into the renowned Chobe NP. This is an excellent opportunity to view some of Africa's spectacular wildlife. If you did not see enough animals already there will be time tomorrow morning for an optional game drive in the Chobe NP.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Day 7 Zimbabwe - Victoria Falls:

On arrival in Victoria Falls we have time to plan the next day's adventure activities before we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls National Park and experience the thundering of the mighty Zambezi as it drops over 100m in to the gorge below. The local Batoka tribe named the Victoria Falls 'Mosi-o-Tunya' which translated means "The Smoke that Thunders". In high-water season the plume of spray rising from the Falls can be seen for kilometres.

Optional Activities: Chobe NP Early Morning Game Drive, Zambezi Sunset Dinner Cruise.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch.

Day 8 Victoria Falls:

Although your tour officially ends after breakfast, most people will spend the day White Water Rafting, a not-to-be-missed experience of a lifetime! Vic Falls offers many exciting activities so we recommend you add a post-tour night here.

Optional Activities: White Water Rafting, Bungee Jump, Walking with Lions, Elephant Excursion, Dinner out.

Meals: Breakfast.

Important:

Local Payment:

The local payment is a USD cash portion of the tour payment that needs to be paid directly to your guide in Africa. This payment covers fluctuating expenses such as flights, National Park fees, entrance fees ect & also ensures that we have a reliable amount of hard currency on each tour. Our local payment is not a kitty, your food & accommodationare included in the tour price. All local payment amounts are subject to change without notice. Changes are very rare & are normally due to a sudden or unexpected price increase by a local service provider or National Park.

Single Supplement:

All of our tours are priced on twin share accommodation. The single supplement is not compulsory on our camping tours but if you want your own tent you need to pay the single supplement. If you are booking one of our accommodation tours alone you have to pay the single supplement. There are a maximum of 4 single supplements available on all tours.

Health:

All people who join an adventure tour need to be in good health. Medical facilities are not always available. If you have a specific medical condition it is compulsary for you to advise us before departure. Malaria is a real concern in many areas of Africa, especially during the rainy season. Our advice is simple, prevent getting bitten by using an insect repellent and use an effective prophylactic. Speak to your doctor before selecting your Malaria medication. Please ensure you have the relevant vaccinations. Proof of innoculation is required on certain tours.
