Day 1
Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park
Your start point is either in Livingstone (Zambia) or Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) where you are picked up from your accommodation and transferred to the border with Botswana. After border formalities you travel the short distance to Kasane. We spend the afternoon game driving in Chobe National Park, following the Chobe River. Chobe is renowned for its huge herds of elephants that migrate between Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and the Okavango Delta.

Day 2
Savuti, Linyanti
Accessible by 4x4 wheel drive only we head deep into south west corner of Chobe National Park to the Savuti Marsh, a relic of a large inland lake fed occasionally by the Savuti Channel. The region is also made up of rolling savannah which attracts many different species of antelope and herds of zebra wildebeest, buffalo and elephant. These in turn attract many predators including lion, leopard, hyena and wild dog.

Day 3
Moremi Game Reserve
Nestled next to the Okavango Delta waters the Moremi Reserve offers unrivalled game viewing. The combination of different habitats from Mopane woodlands to Acacia forests, foodplains and lagoons make this area a stunning place of beauty, enhanced by the diverse array of wildlife found here. Sightings of leopard, wild dogs, cheetah and lion are common as well as elephant, giraffe and zebra. Common night time visitors to camp are spotted hyena and honey badgers.

Day 4 – 5
Maun, Okavango Delta
We continue to Maun, gateway to the Okavango Delta and journey for a day into the ‘Delta’ in mokoros (dug out canoes) and take a game walk in search of elephant, wild dog, buffalo, lion and more. The ‘Delta’ is a huge inland water system dotted with thousands of islands that are a haven for a diverse array of wildlife. This is a unique environment where dry land and water collides.

Day 6 – 7
Makgadikgadi Pans, Kasane,
Victoria Falls or Livingstone From Maun we travel to the Makgadikgadi Pans – vast shimmering salt flats on the edge of the Kalahari basin. Sleeping out under the night sky under a blanket of stars is something. We travel back towards Kasane and transfer vehicles again at the border for our onwards journey to Livingstone or Victoria Falls where this tour ends.

Since 1996 we have been working with the best tour operators in Africa. Our unique relationship with those operators ensures only people who have participated in a trip after making an enquiry for it at AfricaGuide.com can leave a review.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
