A scheduled Air flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone Airport and the majestic Victoria Falls - a 'must' for any visitor to Africa, but unfortunately the Zimbabwean Town of Victoria Falls has become a bustling, noisy and a rather unpleasant location, which is fine for those privileged enough to be isolated by the five star luxury of the Victoria Falls Hotel, but otherwise is a place to avoid except when visiting the Falls themselves.
We have chosen Chundukwa Tree Lodge for our guests seeking a more sympathetic environment "far from the madding crowd". Within easy reach of Victoria Falls (30Km) and set on the banks of the Zambezi on the Zambian side of the river, it is a highly personalised Camp, accommodating a maximum of 8 persons in individually designed and easily accessible chalets.
During your three night stay you and your party will have extensive opportunities to explore the Falls. The more adventurous can partake in white water rafting, bungi jumping or even surfing the rapids. The world famous 'Flight of the Angels' is well worth doing. You will also go out on safari in the Livingstone National Park and visit the Falls, accompanied by your personal Guide
After three nights at Chundukwa Tree Lodge, you will transfer by car and Ferry to Kasane in Botswana (approx 60minute), where you will board a light aircraft, flying over the spectacular Okavango Delta to Delta Camp ( a flight time of 1hr 20mins).
Delta Camp is one of the original luxury lodges built in Africa, and is frequented by the cognoscenti wishing to get as close to nature as possible. The Camp is very protective of the environment, using only natural materials in the construction, ensuring that all waste is taken out of the Delta and prohibiting any motorboats from spoiling the natural sounds of the Okavango.
Overlooking the Boro, one of the main waterways of the Okavango, Delta Camp is imaginatively built from locally-sourced natural materials. Your private 'reed' bungalow has the "most comfortable beds in Africa" - (at least according to our many guests who have raved about Delta Camp), electric lights, showers with continuous hot water, and flushing toilet. It is hard to imagine surrounded by this comfort that you are in fact 65Km into the bush!
Your safaris from Delta Camp will be the most interesting during your holiday. You will explore the intricate and stunningly beautiful waterways of the Okavango Delta by mokoro, a dug out canoe poled by your personal Guide. This is a truly magical experience, allowing you to view the abundant bird-life at very close range. Floating through beds of water-lilies, watching antelope, zebra, giraffe and perhaps the occasional cheetah, your memories of Delta Camp will remain with you for ever.
Walking Safaris are also featured at Delta Camp. Even the most satiated safari-goers will tell you that tracking and viewing wildlife on foot is 'the only way to go!' Accompanied by your personal experienced and qualified Guide, you will, in all safety and security, become part of the African landscape.
From your four night stay at Delta Camp, you will take a light aircraft flight into Maun and then a 2 hour drive to the Makgadigadi Salt Pans in the Kalahari Desert.
Here you will be accommodated in rustic luxury walk-in tents under a canopy of indigenous trees. As at Delta Camp, your rooms have every comfort including hot water showers and flush loos.
Makgadikgadi Camp offers one of the most intriguing views of Africa, totally different to any other African destination. Your safaris will be on four wheel 'quad' motorcycles, and will take you deep into the pans where you will be able to visualise life as it existed tens of thousands of years ago. The pans are littered with prehistoric artifacts, left by an ancient civilisation that once lived on the shores of what was the largest lake in the world.
Makgadikgadi is also home to huge herds of zebra and flamingos who feed off the algae found in the pans, and which is responsible for their pink colouration.
From Makgadikgadi you will return to Maun to transfer to an Air Botswana Flight to Johannesburg Airport, arriving around 18.00 hrs. A short transfer to the conveniently located Metcourt Laurel at the Airport, for a brief overnight stay before boarding your flight to Bazaruto the following morning at 10.00am.
Upon arrival at Vilanculos on the coast of Mozambique, you will met and after completing Immigration formalities, transferred to the Falcon of Bazaruto by seaplane, and experience in itself!
