Day 1-4: Maun – Caprivi strip

Upon arrival in Maun, you will receive your fully equipped 4x4 vehicle and can acclimatize and rest after a long flight, before the journey ‘really’ starts the next day.
Past the western part of the Okavango Delta, the road takes you to Namibia. At the Caprivi-Strip, you have time to visit those national parks that are not yet visited by many, with the Popa falls around the corner - listen to and watch the hippos in the Okavango river.
The tour continues to the wettest part of the Caprivi, a green and lush area, almost delta-like. It is a green area with many birds and other animals such as elephants and water buffalo and the habitat of giant crocodiles.

Day 5-7: Chobe National Park – Victoria Falls

From the Caprivi, the border is crossed back to Botswana, to Kasane, the entrance ‘gate’ to the Chobe National Park. The Chobe River Front offers an overwhelming variety or flora and fauna, several days can be spent here easily and the Chobe National Park is home to over 120 000 Elephants! Explore this amazing park on guided boat cruises along the river or via guided, or self-drive tours through the park.

NOTE: visit the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, a daytrip to this wonder of the worlds is highly recommended.

Day 8-9: Makgadikgadi National Park

Through Nata the journey continues to Gweta from where the vast plains of Makgadikgadi Natinoal Park and Nxai Pan can be explored. The famous Baines Baobabs will let you wonder about mother nature’s amazing forms and durability – like ancient giants resting in an open field. And don’t forget to look up during the night, to witness the clearest and most starry sky – even clearly following the path of the milky way?

Day 10–12: Maun – Moremi National Park – Okavango Delta

From Maun you can explore the Okavango Delta, either by yourself or in an organized activity. Or maybe even spend a night in this wild nature of the Moremi National Park? Very exciting! The wetlands of the Moremi National Park offer an abundance of game. You can also visit the Delta by Mokoro (traditional kanu) or join a scenic flight over the Delta. There is enough to experience, for everyone!
