Upon arrival to the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport meet your Safari representative and head straight to Victoria Falls, the world's largest sheet of falling water! Take a guided tour of the area before departing for camp on the Zambezi River.
*Please note that the falls are seasonal and almost completely disappear in November and December.
Transfer back to the airport this morning to catch a light aircraft flight to the Linyanti Concession. Fly over the Kazangula border, a point where the four countries of Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia meet. Stopover in Kasane for an impressive river cruise in Chobe National Park. This area is ripe with non-predatory animals such as buffalo, giraffe, elephant, hippo, zebra, impala, and white rhino. After the cruise, depart Kasane by air to the private Linyanti concession. Arrive to camp in time to freshen up and enjoy dinner.
The Linyanti's perpetual waters attract herds of wildlife that walk well-worn game paths to quench their thirst in the dry season. Predators follow in their footsteps providing diverse and exciting game viewing. The area’s range of habitat includes riverine, savannah, forest, and plains, and offers travelers a diverse safari experience available in few other, if any, destinations. Spend time on traditional game drives, and keep your eyes peeled for the rare roan and sable antelope, plains game and of course their predators, the lion and leopard, with the endangered wild dog as an incredible bonus.
Return to the airstrip in time for a flight to the Santawani Concession. Spend the next 3 days exploring the concession on a mix of day and night game drives, nature walks, and seasonal canoe rides. Birders will be thrilled with the area’s variety of winged species. The Santawani Concession is one of the most diverse areas in northern Botswana which seldom disappoints when it comes to producing fascinating wildlife experiences. Move through the Mopane forests in search of large herds of elephants, different types of antelope, kudu, tsessebe, wildebeest and zebra. Because the waterway attracts so many animals it is a natural allure for predators as well. Keep an eye out for a lion crouching in the tall grasses, spotted hyena, wild dog, and if you are really lucky you may even see a leopard.
Jao Concession is a wetland habitat offering Mekoro, boat trips, guided walks and game drives all year round. Here you will find one of the most densely populated areas of sitatunga and red lechwe. Wildlife concentrations depend on the water flow and volume, thus changing from season to season, but all the large animals can be found in the area including elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo. Jao concession is also birders paradise with exceptionally large concentrations of the endangered Wattled Crane, Slaty Egret and Lesser Jacana. Enjoy meals in the lofted dining room of your camp, giving you unparalleled views of the delta.
Depart Jacana Camp for the airstrip and take a light aircraft flight to Maun, where you will continue with your international flights.
