After breakfast discover why the Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World as we explore it on a guided excursion. This dramatically beautiful event is accompanied by a deafening roar and fine spray that arcs up into the sky, giving the falls its local name: Mosi-oa-Tunya – the “Smoke that Thunders”. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure or participate in other optional activities.

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Today we travel to the Chobe National Park, where wildlife roams freely in profusion and diversity. It is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa, while other game consists of large herds of buffalo, puku, lechwe, bushbuck, and kudu. Other major species such as lion, leopard, wild dog, sable, and roan antelope are encountered in many areas of the reserve. In the afternoon embark on a guided Chobe sunset cruise along the national park to experience the multitude of game species found along the banks of the Chobe River.

GREATER MOREMI REGION
We travel via Maun towards the concession bordering the Moremi/Khwai reserve to the east, an area that we will explore in detail over the next days. En route to our camp, we have the opportunity to already keep our eyes open for game species, but can also marvel at the untouched traditional lifestyle of the Botswana people that inhabit the area. Once at our camp, we have the rest of the day at leisure and can relax in the pristine nature that surrounds the camp.
Overnight at Tuskers Tented Camp – or similar Tented Camp – Breakfast and dinner.

MOREMI GAME RESERVE
After an early breakfast, we leave camp for extensive morning and afternoon game drives through the Moremi Game Reserve in search of predators and a range of other animal species such as elephant and antelope. The Moremi area is unequalled in scenic beauty and hosts an excellent quantity of birds, animals, and plants. The park covers about one third of the entire Okavango Delta and with its giant mopane forests, contrast beautifully with the wide open spaces of the Khwai floodplain.
Overnight at Tuskers Tented Camp – Tented Camp – Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Day 7 | Monday
We again head out in open game viewer vehicles for a full day game drive through the Khwai Concession or Xini Lagoon (pending on current water levels), one of the world’s most famous game concessions. Together with the Moremi Game Reserve this area covers more than 4871km² of pristine wilderness, and its varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways, and thick forest. This diversity supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, all these attracting lion, cheetah, leopard, and packs of wild dog into the open grasslands. The birdlife is prolific and includes most of the 550 bird species recorded on the Botswana national bird list.
