Days 2-3: Okavango Delta | Elephant Encounter & the “Big Five”

Fly to Maun and connect with a flight to Sanctuary Baines’ Camp. At Baines’ Camp, five luxurious suites feature four-poster beds that are fully mobile and can be moved out onto a private deck for the opportunity to sleep under star-laden skies. Activities range from year-round mokoro (dugout canoe) rides and night game drives to bush walks, each providing countless wildlife viewing options. You may also interact with a group of semi-habituated African elephants at an A&K Philanthropy-sponsored project, followed by a shaded picnic overlooking a lagoon.

Days 4-5: Okavango Delta | The Predator Capital

Board a flight to Sanctuary Chief’s Camp, set deep in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve. Known as the “predator capital” of Botswana, it offers some of the finest game viewing in the region. Embark on exciting game drives where you may see the lions, cheetahs and the nocturnal leopard, as well as ostriches, antelope, wildebeests and kudu, along with bathing hippos and crocodiles silently patrolling the waters.

Days 6-7: Chobe National Park | Running River

Fly northeast to Chobe National Park to your exquisite lodge above the Chobe River. Take in the scenery from spectacular outdoor viewing patios, where you may glimpse Chobe elephants. The park is home to one of the largest concentration of elephants in Africa — a staggering 120,000. Enjoy a swim in the split-level pool, book a Vichy shower treatment at the spa or grab a book from the library. Your game drives may reveal lions, hippos, crocodiles, warthogs and possibly a colony of carmine bee-eaters. Board a motorized boat for a water safari, keeping an eye out for hippos, buffalo, antelope, waterbucks and lions. Later, embark on a photographic safari cruise aboard a boat with 360-degree swivel seats.

Day 8: Victoria Falls | The Smoke that Thunders

Drive across the Zimbabwe border to visit awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, the roar of the mighty Zambezi yielding up to 120 million gallons of water per minute as it plunges into the gorge. Continue to your accommodations at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma in Zambia, where you stay in a luxury tree house built into the living canopy that lines the bank. As twilight sets in, take a sunset cruise while sipping traditional cocktails.

You also may choose to visit a local village and provide support for the community’s school and clinic, both operating with assistance from A&K Philanthropy.
