Journey from Victoria Falls through the Savute Channel to the Okavango Delta, the ‘Jewel of the Kalahari,’ by air, 4x4, foot and dugout mokoro on this ten-day nature and wildlife-rich African expedition.
10 days/ 9 nights
Night 1: The River Club or Toka Leya Camp
The River Club is a sunlit bubble of comfort and hospitality that lies in dappled shade overlooking the Zambezi River, 18km upstream from the world-famous Victoria Falls. Each chalet has one side completely open to the river, so that there is an uninterrupted vista of the shining Zambezi and glorious African sunsets from both bed and bathtub. Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands is Toka Leya Camp, consisting of 12 spacious en-suite safari-style tents. Wooden walkways snake between the units and main area, limiting our footprint on this pristine area.
Nights 2 to 4: Linyanti Adventurer Camp
Our dome tents are well ventilated with a mini veranda and individual hand basins for each guest outside at the tent. Stretcher beds, bedrolls with crisp linen, duvets and pillows, towels and amenities (soap, shower gel and conditioning shampoo) are provided. In addition, there is a shared bedside table, coir mat (inside) and a 12v reading light provided. The tents are large enough to stand in and move easily. The camps aim to provide simple camping comfort that is serviced.
Nights 5 to 7: Khwai Adventurer Camp
Discoverer camps are specifically designed to ensure that old-style camping feel with a clear emphasis on necessary and stylish comfortable interiors, creating a peerless wilderness experience. Discoverer camping aims to bring the guest closer to nature, by means of a lively campfire, hurricane lanterns, wide-ranging activities and a warm atmosphere complimenting the comfort and added luxury of the camps visited.
Nights 8 & 9: Mokoro Trail Camp
Nestled in a magnificent riverine forest, Xigera Camp epitomises the region: a tranquil true Okavango Delta experience. Xigera Camp feels like a place apart, a blue-green bubble in which birds sing and baboons bark, people laugh and glide by on mokoro. Each tent looks out over water that idles dreamily past, undisturbed by the urban cacophony of modern living.
