The casual visitor to Botswana could be excused for seeing the country as kilometre upon kilometre of flat, desolate scrubland with little or no surface water – closer inspection however will reveal what is arguably Africa's finest wildlife destination. A country the size of France, over a quarter of Botswana's land is set aside exclusively for nature conservation. Our tour will take us through the vast Kalahari where we will walk with the local Bushmen people, then to the north - into the magnificent Okavango Delta where we will travel by boat and in dugout canoes (mokoro) with local Bayei tribes people to our private island in the heart of this unique natural wonderland – home also to a multitude of Africa's fauna and flora. We then explore the renowned national parks in fully equipped open 4x4 vehicles - depending on the season, our route will follow the game migrations. We will spend a night under the stars in the vast Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, will enjoy a game viewing boat cruise on the mighty Chobe River, and finally, will visit "The Smoke that Thunders" - Victoria Falls. Clients may opt to then fly out from Victoria Falls or enjoy the journey back to Johannesburg traveling south overland. These tours offer the adventure traveler, photographer, birdwatcher and naturalist the ultimate natural paradise.

BOTSWANA 16 DAY ACCOMMODATED

DAY 1: JOHANNESBURG - KALAHARI

Our adventure starts on departure from the GREENFIRE LODGE JOHANNESBURG at 06h30. Making our way through the north west of South Africa with scattered mountains all around, we aim to cross the Botswana border near Lobatse. On completion of customs and immigration formalities, we cross into Botswana and the vast Kalahari Plains that stretch as far as the eye can see. We will cover quite some distance today before arriving at our accommodation near the village of Kang. Once we have checked into our accommodation, we will enjoy a short walk out into the bush. Tonight we enjoy a catered meal while our guide explains what to expect in the days to come. MEALS: LUNCH AND DINNER OWN EXPENSE DISTANCE: 720 KM ACCOMMODATION: KALAHARI REST LODGE INCLUDED HIGHLIGHTS/ACTIVITY: - BORDER CROSSING AT LOBATSE BORDER POST - SHORT WALK AFTER CHECKING IN TO OUR ACCOMMODATION - SCENIC DRIVE THROUGH SOUTH AFRICA AND THE KALAHARI DESERT

DAY 2: KALAHARI BUSHMEN

Waking up to a spectacular Kalahari sunrise, we enjoy our first cup of coffee and a sumptuous breakfast before continuing to the frontier town of Ghanzi. Ghanzi is home to some of the last traditional Bushmen that make a living in this harsh desert environment. It is here that we will enjoy learning about the wilderness from these fascinating people. Our experience will include an educational bush walk led by true Bushmen to give us insight into their daily lives and teach us how they survive in these arid conditions. We overnight in comfortable accommodation on a vast tract of land owned and managed by the local people. MEALS: B L D DISTANCE: 258 KM ACCOMMODATION: DQAE QARE SAN LODGE INCLUDED HIGHLIGHTS/ACTIVITY: - GUIDED BUSH WALK LED BY TRUE BUSHMEN/SAN

DAY 3 - 5: OKAVANGO DELTA

The Okavango, a massive river spilling its contents into the Kalahari sands, creating one of the world's only true inland delta's and a unique ecosystem that supports a huge variety of animal and plant life. The sight of a nervous Lechwe pounding across a flooded plain, the Jacana striding delicately amongst the flowering lilies, the Bee Eater diving to prey on an unsuspecting insect, and of course the familiar cry of the African Fish Eagle - all combine to create one of nature's masterpieces. We begin our journey into the Delta near the panhandle, gliding through the papyrus lined channels by motorboat to our exclusive wild island. We spend three nights here in true wilderness, exploring the area on foot and by mokoro. There will also be time to simply relax and to absorb the remoteness and serenity of the area. Clients will not only learn more about the animals and plants from the local guides but will also interact and have the opportunity to learn more about the people and their way of life in this isolated wilderness area. MEALS: B L D; B L D; B L D DISTANCE: 390 KM ON DAY 3 ACCOMMODATION: TWIN-BEDDED TENTED UNITS ON PRIVATE ISLAND OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES: - SCENIC HELICOPTER FLIGHT OVER DELTA INCLUDED HIGHLIGHTS/ACTIVITY: - MOTORBOAT TRANSFER INTO THE OKAVANGO DELTA - PRIVATE ISLAND - GUIDED GAME WALKS IN THE DELTA LED BY LOCAL MOTSWANA GUIDES - MOKORO TRIPS IN DELTA - SUNSET HIPPO CRUISE

This afternoon we arrive in the 'tourism capital of Botswana' - Maun. We will spend some time stocking up on basic supplies before we travel the short distance out to the DRIFTERS MAUN LODGE to freshen up and enjoy a catered meal.

DAY 7 - 10: FLEXIBLE GAME RESERVE SCHEDULE

We enjoy a scrumptious breakfast at the lodge while preparing for the game viewing portion of the trip and undoubtedly one of the highlights of the tour. Traveling in our well-equipped 4x4 vehicle/s we head into true wilderness, passing remote villages along the way. We spend five days in the national parks following seasonal game migrations on extensive morning and afternoon game drives. An example of our route could be: starting with Moremi we spend the first night near the well-known Third Bridge. Drift off to sleep to the howl of the hyena or the earthy roar of a lion, and even the deep grunt of a half-submerged hippo. We then head on north via Xakanaxa to camp near North Gate. This area is generally excellent for game viewing and we will conduct afternoon and morning drives along the wetland areas. Then on up to Savuti, the area offers a multitude of game drive options and a very active game area (keep the fruit well hidden from the roving elephant, and the meat from the prowling hyenas). The vegetation is constantly changing, from open plains, palm trees and marshland, to dense Mopane woodlands and Acacia scrub. Depending on the conditions in the national parks we might also venture into the Central Kalahari Game Reserve or the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. During this part of the journey, a support vehicle will travel ahead of the group to setup a fully serviced camp in pristine, remote, private sites where there is no sign of man's existence - we leave each site in the same condition, nothing but footprints are left behind.

This afternoon we enjoy an extensive boat cruise within Chobe National Park, gliding close to the banks we hope to approach these animals from the river for close up viewing.

Vic Falls is also home to a multitude of adventure activities such as an aircraft flip over the falls or a boat trip on the Zambezi River, white water rafting or bungee jumping, but allowance must be made for the extra expense.
