Tour Overview

The Okavango Delta is the safari zone you wouldn’t want to miss. Navigating the water channels on mokoro (wooden canoes) passing by grazing elephants and hippos is such a dream but reality. Before then you would have seen much Pilanesberg National Park and Marakele National Park. The Tour ends in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Tour highlights

Pilannesberg National Park – This park in the Northwest of province has a good population of lions, leopards, black and white rhino, elephants and buffalo. The near extinct brown hyena has been spotted here as well as the fleet-footed cheetah. Birds poulation is also significant.

Marakele National Park – In the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, a transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa. Its famous for the cape vulture, the rare reedbuck, mountain reedbuck, tsessebe and eland among other animals.

Okavango Delta – Its a place of larsh islands of reeds and flowers with an excellent population of wildlife far from human settlements as its not easy to live in the Delta. You will be way inside the delta where you can only navigate on mokoro, the common means of transport here whee no cars can make it.

Chobe National park – On the side of the end of the delta is the Chobe national park with the Chobe river flowing across attracting huge herds of elephants and buffaloes for the source water. The Chobe safari has proved to be one of the best you can have in Africa safari.

Victoria Falls – World heritage site and Zimbabwe’s best Tourism attraction center. Its the amazing waterfalls for most visitors and yet Victoria Falls has a more Game drives, boat cruise and white water-rafting that you can experience while you are here

Itinerary

Once you are done for the check-inn and the briefing by your Guide, you set off to Pillannesberg in the Northwest province. In the afternoon you go on your first game drive in the national park. The safari customized vehicles for game drive will be used for easy viewing of game.

 

You start your day earlier for game drive in the Pilannesburg national park and aim to be out of the park by mid day. You drive for 2 hours to Thabazimbi where you will go to the Marakele national park for another sunset safari drive usually starts at  16:00 hours.  

Today you leave South Africa through the Grobbler’s gate as you make your way into Botswana. You overnight in Serowe a town in Botswana. The drive is long but also enjoy the warm dry weather of Botswana as this side is still in the savanna

You drive further inland Botswana to the Okavango Delta, the largest inland Delta in Africa. Maun meaning ‘a place of reeds’ is a small town just outside the Delta and serves as the gateway to the Delta. Today you have the afternoon to take scenic flights over the Okavango Delta and later in the evening you prepare your backpack for your excursion in the Delta.

Your excursion in the Delta starts in the morning today. You have a transfer by 4×4 vehicles a couple hours drive to the mokoro poler- point. The delta here is only accessed by the poler driven mokoro which refers to the ‘ wooden canoe’. There are  few remote villages for tribes that have always lived here. The polers mostly are from these villages and will navigate your way to your campsite through the reeds, grass and shallow waters but sometimes deep as well. 

Your campsite is a modern tented with stuff working there who will welcome you and show around and of course outline the ground-rules. This is way inside the Delta surrounded by water, wildlife could come as close to the campsite but you are always safe. You will have guided walks as part of the activities.

The mokoro ride back the way you came will take you to the pick-up point where you will be transferred to the lodge in Maun. Enjoy the Delta and also have an optional late afternoon activities in Maun or an opportunity to do shopping.

We leave Maun to Nata today through the Xai-Xai national park. The Makgadikgadi salt pans will be visible as you drive through the now Savanna region with predominant butterfly trees, baobab trees and acacia trees. At your campsite there you will have a sunset drive to the salt pans or you can take a walking tour with local guides.

Victoria Falls is Zimbabwe’s busiest small tourist town where tourists from the North and South converge. Its a real wonder of the World and forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. A short walk from your campsite and you are already on the entrance of the Victoria Falls national Park. Enjoy the thundering and deafening sound of the Zambezi river as it plunges to a depth of 108 metres. 

There is a lot of activities to do in Victoria Falls. The other side of Victoria Falls is on the Zambian side and activities can as well be booked from here.
