Clifton Beach, South Africa

Day 1 to 4 – Cape Town

On arrival into Cape Town, you will be greeted and transferred to your chosen Cape Town hotel for a four night stay.

The V&A Waterfront has a great selection of restaurants, boutique shops and art galleries, and Long Street a wonderful antiques arcade, eateries serving worldwide specialities and a vibrant nightlife.

A cable car ride up Table Mountain is almost compulsory, to soak in the stunning view of the city and Atlantic Ocean, whilst a visit to the spectacular Cape of Good Hope or Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, comes highly recommended. Likewise, spending at least an afternoon on the beautiful beaches in Camps Bay or Clifton.

After breakfast, head to Etosha 13, on the western border of the Okavango Delta. Unlike other deltas, it flows into the Kalahari Desert without reaching the coast, which makes it unique.

The next day is spent exploring the network of water pathways through thick vegetation in mokoros (traditional dugout canoes), discovering a variety of birds and wildlife. We have the opportunity to stop at a secluded island to take a 1½ hour guided walk hoping to spot elephants, waterbuck or other animals living in this water-filled paradise.

After breakfast, we head south travelling via Maun to our camp which is situated in a private concession in the Greater Moremi area. This large area is renowned for its concentration of mammals and it is not unusual to see many different types of wildlife during just one game drive.

Game viewing is seasonal; depending on the time of the year you may see different species in different areas. The best time for game viewing is the end of the dry season or spring from August to November. During this season, in order for us to offer the best game viewing possible, extra driving may be required due to the animals migrating closer to the river. In the summer, birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors.

Leaving the bush behind us, we travel east towards the Makgadikgadi Pans, once a large river fed lake which has become saline and empty. This area incorporates a multitude of salt pans and vast grass plains dotted by palm islands and forms the Great Makgadikgadi which comprises the largest area of salt pans in the world, covering some 37,000 square km overall.

We head off to the Nata Bird Sanctuary in the morning, which offers us the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent view over the Sowa pan, which is part of the Greater Makgadikgadi Pans. A visit to the pans is subject to the road conditions and water levels as well as time constraints. A breakfast pack prepared by the lodge is enjoyed on the road as the journey continues north to Kasane, the gateway to the Chobe National Park.

Chobe, which is the second largest national park in Botswana and covers 10,566 square km, has one of the greatest concentrations of elephant found on the African continent. The afternoon is at leisure to partake in optional activities or to relax by the pool.

Start your morning of day 9 with a spectacular game drive in Chobe National Park. You will return to the lodge for a late breakfast and relaxation until our boat cruise on the Chobe River which starts around 3 pm. Here we can watch elephants, hippos, crocodiles and a variety of birds, making for excellent up close photo opportunities.

Today we make our way across the border into Zimbabwe and onto our lodge located in a private concession near to Hwange National Park, where we will spend the next three nights in this wildlife-rich area. This afternoon you can partake in an optional game drive if time allows.

Over the following two days, we will have plenty of time to explore this vast wilderness on game drives. Hwange National Park is one of Africa’s finest havens for wildlife and is home to massive herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra and has a very large concentration of giraffe. It is also home to many predators and endangered species of birds. There will be a visit to the Painted Dog Conservation Centre to witness the work that is done to protect these endangered species.
