This short overland tour starts in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and finishes 6 days later in Maun, Botswana. Cruise the Chobe River to delight in the park’s large herds of elephant that concentrate in and by the Chobe River particularly during dry season, accompanied by other wildlife. Then to Maun for a mokoro safari in the Okavango Delta, a vast wetland teeming with animals and birdlife!
Included:6 nights camping, Meals: Breakfast x 7; Dinner x 6
Minimum age is 18. Average age of the passengers is between 18 – 39 but if you are an open minded person more at age and you don’t mind climbing daily in and out the overland truck you are more than welcome to join!
We arrive into the Falls a few days before departure and can stay on either side of the Falls of the Zambezi, either in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe or Livingstone, Zambia. Some passengers will have travelled down from East Africa on the truck and will be heading onto Botswana with us. It is a great idea then to arrive in early if you can and meet up with everyone, and as well join in as many of the activities as you wish. There is an airport on both sides of the Falls and we can book a taxi transfer through to our camp from either airport. In Livingstone we would recommend Jollyboys Backpackers if you want some time there, and in Victoria Falls we can book rooms at Shoestrings Backpackers where the group currently camps.
Victoria Falls – Maun
Early morning on day of departure.
On our first day we leave the mighty Victoria Falls behind us and enter Botswana.
We arrive at Kasane by midday and arrange our game viewing options in our first game park, Chobe National Park, a park blessed with abundant game and particularly with large herds of elephant. We take a river cruise on the Chobe River, as well as game drives deep into the park. The cruise allows us to enjoy views of elephant, crocodile and hippopotamus as well as of the other game drawn to the river, daily access to water being an essential to many species, particularly in dry season. Zebra, buffalo and many different antelope species call Chobe home too. The concentration of prey also attracts predators and the area is
known to have lion, leopard and cheetah.

We now take a three day safari into the wilds of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, the traditional dugout canoe of the Delta boatmen. In our mokoros we are poled deep into the Delta by trained guides, a truly relaxing way to travel and to spot the rich bird life and unusual flora of the Delta, as well as elephant, hippo, crocodile and the special sitatunga and lechwe. Our camp for the night is on one of the small islands in the Delta. During our time here we can also take guided game walks, swim in the clear waters, take a sunset mokoro ride and perhaps even learn the difficult art of poling. After your safari in the Delta we have one final night relaxing at the camp in Maun.
