Dramatic Botswana

Summary Of The Route and Costs

This 7 day itinerary showcases some of the most dramatic highlights, from the majesty of Victoria Falls to the marooned islands of the Okavango Delta and the pristine wilderness of the Central Kalahari.

Beginning at the thundering Victoria Falls, you’ll stay in an intimate lodge within easy reach of the Falls and all its attractions and activities. The Elephant Camp is nestled on a ridge between the Masuwe River and the Zambezi gorges, giving guests an uninterrupted view of the breath-taking spray that swells above the Victoria Falls, hence it's local name of Mosi-oa-Tunya - 'The Smoke that Thunders'.

Then you’ll continue to Pom Pom Island, an unspoiled private wilderness deep in the Delta. The Delta is the world’s largest inland wetland area, comprising of nearly 16,000 square kilometres of lagoons, island and channels. This great quantity of water attracts a huge number of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffes, hippos, kudus, predators such as lion, hyena and leopard, and endless birdlife. Morning and evening game drives in the company of a qualified guide will give you the opportunity to view all the big game and night life of this environment, or a mokoro trip is a fantastic way to also experience the wonders of the Okavango Delta.

Finally, you’ll pay a visit to the Central Kalahari, where you’ll stay in a safari lodge with truly incredible views from the ridge of an ancient sand dune, an unusual experience in a land as flat as Botswana. Enjoy nature walks with Bushman trackers, game drives, and late night star gazing onto the Milky Way as silence envelops you in this desert wonderland.
