Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
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 a 1.2-mile-wide basalt lip. Afterward, you may choose to peruse local crafts, including excellent wood carvings, on a pleasant market visit. Then, gain insight into local daily life with a visit to a school and clinic supported by A&K Philanthropy in Nakatindi Village.

Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
DAY 4
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe | “The Smoke That Thunders”

This morning, drive to Zimbabwe to visit awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, which plummet 354 feet to cast up the mist that inspired their original name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (“The Smoke That Thunders”). Afterward, visit an artist’s village, where you have the opportunity to meet local artisans and observe them at work. Enjoy lunch in the town of Victoria Falls before continuing to Chobe National Park in Botswana, where you settle into your lodge for unparalleled panoramic views across islands and floodplains of the Chobe River. This afternoon, set out on a game drive that includes elephants — a staggering 120,000 live in the park — along with impalas, buffalo and possibly lions. Return to the lodge 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.

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
DAY 5
Chobe National Park, Botswana | Chobe River Safari

Set out on a game drive at sunrise to catch the animals at the start of their day, when they are most active. You may even glimpse a leopard returning from the hunt. Later, embark on a Chobe River safari cruise aboard a double-decker boat and watch for crocodiles and hippos, as well as 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 the lodge this evening, revel in the comforts of your luxury accommodations, enjoy a freshly prepared meal and share stories of your day.

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
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, 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, on the lookout for giraffes, hippos, lions and cheetahs.

Sanctuary Stanley's Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodations vary by departure date. See Dates & Prices for details. 
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 driver-guides or enjoy the vistas from your own private viewing deck.

Sanctuary Chief's Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodations vary by departure date. See Dates & Prices for details. 
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.

Sanctuary Chief's Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
