Vic Falls, Okavango, Kruger to J'burg - Itinerary

Day 1  We leave our Victoria Fall in the morning on the 2nd day of the trip. We recommend you arrive in Victoria Falls at least the day before the trip departs; if you're there with a few days to spare there's lots to see and do around the Falls. With grade 5 rapids to raft over and the spectacular sight of the massive wall of water torrenting over the falls, with the mist rising 100’s of feet into the air above.

Day 2 We cross the border to Botswana. Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River and Chobe Game Park. We game drive in the evening to see elephants and hippo on the riverbanks.

Day 3  An early start and a stunning drive through arid land on the edge of the Kalahari Desert.

Maun is a dusty outpost community and the centre for the Okavango Delta on the edges of the Kalahari Desert. The Okavango is the world's largest inland delta. Here the Okavango River empties to form a swamp in the Kalahari Desert, a park where thousands of animals live on the waterways and islands. The animals your most likely to see if you take the optional trip in the Delta are; hippos, zebra, giraffe, elephant antelopes and crocodiles.

Day 4  Into the Delta. Up early and it’s off walking with the guide, a unique chance to see game on foot; elephants, herds of grazing zebra and pods of hippos.

For the trip into the Delta pack; an overnight bag, food, cooking and camping equipment and you’re off. A short truck ride to the dugout canoes, called Mokoros and you punt out into the delta along reed lined waterways. The guides find an island for the night and set up camp. For those not going into the Delta; relax by the pool or visit town.

Day 5  In the Delta. Try learning how to pole your mokoro, or try to catch a catfish; the guides make it look so easy.

Day 6  Back to Maun. A last swim in the clear water before heading back to the truck and campsite for a shower and cold drinks. Time permitting you could take a scenic flight over the Delta from Maun.

Day 7  We leave Maun for Palapye; a long drive though the bush lands heading southeast

Day 8  We cross into South Africa and head east to the Blyde River Canyon. A long deep canyon on the northern edge of the Drakensberg Mountains.

Day 9  We take the Panorama Route, we stop God’s Window viewpoint and the small town of Graskop, before camping in Kruger National Park.

Kruger National Park is one of the largest parks in Africa; you should see the big 5 here. On the border of Mozambique. Its great for day and night game drives, with lots of; elephants, lions, hippos, buffalo and still rhino.

Day 10  We spend the day looking for game in the park.

Day 11  We head towards Johannesburg and the end of our trip. There is a lot to do in J’burg so we suggest you allow yourself a few extra days there to look around.
