Day 3: Livingstone, Zambia | First Look at Victoria Falls

Day 4: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe | The Smoke that Thunders

Drive to Zimbabwe to once again visit awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. Plummeting 354 feet, the falls cast up the mist that inspired their original name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders). Continue to Chobe National Park in Botswana and settle into your lodge for expansive views across the Chobe River. This afternoon, set out on a game drive that includes elephants — 120,000 live in the park — impalas, buffalo and possibly lions. Return to camp, relax and enjoy a freshly prepared meal. Later, drift to sleep beneath the stars, serenaded by the sounds of Africa.

Day 5: Chobe National Park | Magnificent Watering Hole

Set out on a game drive at sunrise to catch the animals at the start of their day, when they are hungry and hence most active. You may see hippos, crocodiles, leopards or even a colony of carmine bee-eaters. Later, embark on a Chobe River safari cruise and watch for elephants that come down to drink and play in the water. Back in camp, relax in your luxury accommodations and sit down to a gourmet dinner this evening.

Days 6-7: Okavango Delta | Wetlands Wildlife

Fly to your vast private concession in the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. The afternoon is yours to enjoy at leisure with a choice of game-viewing activities, such as a seasonal mokoro (dug-out canoe) ride on the delta or a nighttime game-viewing drive, made possible on this private reserve. The next morning, continue with your choice of activities. Set off on a thrilling, guided game drive in a customized 4x4 vehicle or a bush walk in the company of an armed, expert guide. You may also choose to interact with a group of semi-habituated African elephants at an A&K Philanthropy-sponsored project, and conclude your visit with a picnic in the shade, near the gentle giants.

Sanctuary Baines' Camp   |   Meals: B L D

Day 8: Okavango Delta | Predator Capital

Fly to the newly renovated Sanctuary Chief’s Camp, in the Mombo Concession of the vast Moremi Game Reserve. This area is considered the “Predator Capital of the World” and is home to the “Big Five.”

Day 9: Okavango Delta | Remarkable Game Drives

Depart for early morning game viewing, and then take a seasonal mokoro ride, gliding across deceptively quiet marshlands alive with crocodiles, hippos, birds and frogs. If you opt for an afternoon game drive, listen for roaring lions on the hunt or spy nocturnal animals as they start out for the night.
