DAY 3:
Livingstone | Nakatindi Village Visit

Begin with a guided walking tour of Victoria Falls from the Zambian side. Get a closer view of the mighty Zambezi River, as it cascades over the edge of an impressive 1.2-mile-wide basalt lip. Afterward, peruse the local crafts, including excellent wood carvings, on a pleasant market visit. Then, return to camp for a Chef’s Table experience offering you a taste of traditional Zambian fare.

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

This morning, drive to Zimbabwe to visit awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. The incredible falls extend more than a mile across and plummet 354 feet to cast up the mist that inspired their original name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders). Afterward, enjoy lunch at the famous Victoria Falls Hotel and join a historical walk through its storied halls. Built in 1904, and expanded and refurbished several times in the ensuing century, the hotel still exhibits the charm of the colonial era. 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 thrilling game drive that includes elephants — a staggering 120,000 live in the park — along with impalas, buffalo and possibly lions. Return to camp to relax in the comforts of your luxury accommodations and enjoy a freshly prepared meal. Later, drift to sleep, serenaded by the sounds of Africa beneath a blanket of stars.

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 even glimpse a leopard returning from the hunt. Later, embark on a Chobe River safari cruise aboard a doubledecker boat and watch for crocodiles, hippos and elephants that come down to drink and play in the water. The park’s beautiful wetlands also lure a wealth of birdlife to the region and you may glimpse any of the 460 species that either live here or migrate through, including raptors, vultures and waterfowl. When you return to camp this evening, revel in the comforts of your luxury accommodations, enjoy a freshly prepared meal and share stories of your day with fellow guests.

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 (dugout canoe) ride on the delta or a nighttime game-viewing drive, made possible on this private reserve. The next morning, after breakfast, 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. Be on the lookout for giraffes, hippos, lions and cheetahs.

DAY 8:
Okavango Delta | Predator Capital

Fly across the Okavango Delta to your next amazing safari camp, where you enjoy incredible game drives in or around the Moremi Game Reserve. Widely acknowledged as the “Predator Capital of the World,” this area offers some of the most exciting game viewing in Africa and is one of the best places in Botswana to see the country’s “Big Five” — lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo — drawn here from surrounding regions by the lush delta. Predators include cheetahs, spotted hyenas and, at the very top of the food chain, large resident prides of lions. White and black rhinos are also found here. This afternoon, take advantage of game viewing activities led by experienced driverguides or enjoy the vistas from your own private viewing deck.

DAY 9:
Okavango Delta | Remarkable Game Drives

Depart on another spectacular early morning game drive. Beyond predators, the Okavango Delta draws large concentrations of elephants, buffalo, red lechwes, giraffes and impalas. Enjoy a seasonal mokoro ride for a rare safari opportunity across deceptively quiet marshlands alive with crocodiles, bathing hippos, birds and tiny red reed 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. After a full day of game viewing, return to your camp to relax and enjoy a farewell dinner.
