PROGRAM

DAY 1

Departure.

DAY 2

Welcome to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)! After a long flight we are transferred to a comfortable hotel. Once rested we take a hike along Victoria Falls (depending on the arrival time in Zimbabwe we might move the hike for the next day). We stay in Victoria Falls overnight.

DAY 3

Once we’ve eaten breakfast there is a variety of optional attractions to choose from: a hike along Victoria Falls, the world famous rafting, a walk with lions and elephants, bungee, hang gliding, a helicopter trip or a visit to Zambia.

DAY 4 & 5

After an early breakfast we leave the hotel and move to Hwange National Park, the biggest wildlife reserve covering the area compared to the size of Belgium. We stay here for two days. The park is greatly diverse, which gives us the opportunity to explore enormous areas of bush, marsh, countless rushes and ponds that when heading South slowly transfer firstly into steppes and then into desert and semi-desert areas of famous Kalahari. The number and diversity of species, herds and flocks that live here is astonishing. The park is known to have the biggest amount of mammals among all African national parks. Elephants themselves constitute an astonishing number of 20-75 thousand (the number varies as the reserve is not fenced and animals can freely move outside its borders).

DAY 6

Once we’ve eaten the breakfast we move to Botswana. We stay in Kasane, the biggest town in the region with characteristic for Botswana chaos in architecture. We admire the sunset from the boat on the Chobe River. The night we spend in Kasane.

Today after eating the breakfast we move to the South of Botswana, to the area of Makgadikgadi Pan. The giant Makgadikgadi salt pan is the bottom of a lake, which is said to have witnessed the presence of first people on Earth. Just imagine, if in fact it’s true the trip to this place is like a journey to the roots of our civilisation. We spend the night at Planet Baobab.

DAY 8 & 9

We move further to Maun. Our goal for today is experiencing safari the in Moremi Game Reserve, one of the wildest and purest places in Africa, just after Okavango Delta, the biggest delta among all inland rivers. The Okavango River used to have its end in Lake Makgadikgadi in the North part of present Botswana. The Okavango Delta is inhabited by numerous bird species as well as other animals that thrive on great amounts of water and luxuriant nature there. Nevertheless, the region is known for both dry and wet periods, which results in the fact that area good for vegetation sometimes is bigger and sometimes smaller, with the possibility of floods. We spend the night in ….

DAY 10 & 11

After breakfast we move to Namibia, to the area of Ngepi. We stay at a lovely Ngepi Camp, known for its pool in the Okavango River, stylish bar and other attractions. Next day we visit the Mahango Game Reserve where besides beautiful animals (especially antelopes) we can admire huge baobabs. We spend the night in Ngepi.

The area is also a part of KAZA, Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, the Program created by the Ministries of Environmental Protection of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Angola and Zambia. It will be the biggest environmental protection area that will allow animals to freely relocate between the parks.
