Okavango & Vic Falls
in Botswana & Zimbabwe
This trip is the epitome of adventure! It’s glamping at its most authentic and it allows you to be truly immersed in the wild environment around you. The Okavango is famous for its exquisite watery-wonderland scenery and abundant wildlife – hippos, elephants and gorgeous birds will greet you on the waterways, while lions, red lechwe, leopards, and hyenas are common sightings in Moremi. The best part of a glamping safari? Hot bucket-showers, dinner under the stars, and coffee in your cosy tent at sunrise! Enjoy two nights in a lovely lodge before heading to Africa’s adventure capital – Victoria Falls. This is a fun town with plenty on offer. From white-water rafting and river cruises, to bungee jumping and eating out – you’ll have to decide how to fit it all in! What’s a mobile safari?

Your guide will then take you for a 2 -3-hour late afternoon walking safari where you’ll learn about this fascinating landscape and the animals that inhabit it. Arrive back at camp and enjoy dinner around the camp fire. Spend the evening under the stars listening to your guide’s stories of the bush.
