After your arrival at the Windhoek International Airport, you will start you Namibia Tour by driving to Windhoek. Spend the day at leisure – you might want to go on a city tour.
Windhoek is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Namibia. Notable landmarks are: Parliament Gardens, Christ Church and the Tintenpalast.
You will depart for the Etosha National Park after breakfast and drive via Okahandja, Otjiwarongo, Otavi and Tsumeb, a mining town, to the eastern part of the Etosha National Park.
Tsumeb is the largest town in Oshikoto region in northern Namibia. The town is the site of a deep mine (the lower workings now closed), that in its heyday was known simply as "The Tsumeb Mine" but has since been renamed the Ongopolo mine.
You may want to spend the day with game-viewing in the Etosha National Park.
In the vast arid space of Northern Namibia lies one of Southern Africa’s best loved wildlife sanctuaries. Etosha National Park offers excellent game viewing in one of Africa’s most accessible venues. Zebra and springbok are scattered across the endless horizon, while the many waterholes attract endangered black rhinoceros, lion, elephant and large numbers of antelope.
Today you will drive through “Africa” – your journey leads you to the northern border of Namibia via the Ovamboland. Here you will drive past many small villages along the road and free roaming cattle will cross the streets. The lodge is situated on the banks of the Kavango river – so you might want to go on a boat cruise in the afternoon.
After enjoying your breakfast on the river bank, you will drive along the Trans-Caprivi-Highway to the lodge near Divundu. You might want to visit the Popa Falls today or just relax at the lodge.
Near the little town of Divundu, lies one of the highlights of the western Caprivi, the Popa Falls. They are actually rapids rather than waterfalls. The rapids are particularly impressive in the dry season at lower water levels.
Explore the Mahango National Park which is characterised by its forests, a broad flood plain, magnificent baobab trees and the great variety of animals. With over 300 species of birds, it has been designated an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International. It has very rich diversity of mammal species; 99 species are reported, including elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hippopotami.
You should depart rather early today whilst driving via Kongola to Katima Mulilo, passing through the Caprivi Game Park which is a generally flat landscape except for some dunes covered with vegetation. Then you continue via the Ngoma Bridge boarder post to Botswana and drive to Kasane. Already in the afternoon you can join one of the activities the lodge has to offer.
Day 8 and 9
Enjoy exploring the Chobe National Park or visit the famous Victoria Falls on a day trip.
Chobe National Park, in northern Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. The park is widely known for its spectacular elephant population: it contains an estimated 50 000 elephants, perhaps the highest elephant concentration of Africa, and part of the largest continuous surviving elephant population.
The Victoria Fall, or Mosi-oa-Tunya, is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water.
As from today you will go on an unforgettable fly in safari to explore the vast areas of the Okavango Delta. You will fly from Kasane to the Savute Safari Lodge. Already in the afternoon you will join on of the great activities offered by the lodge.
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is a very large, swampy inland delta formed where the Okavango River reaches a tectonic trough in the central part of the endorheic basin of the Kalahari. All the water reaching the Delta is ultimately evaporated and transpired. The flood peaks between June and August, during Botswana’s dry winter months, when the delta swells to three times its permanent size, attracting animals from kilometres around and creating one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife.
Enjoy the day at the lodge and partake on the activities offered.
This is the home to many mamal species such as the African bush elephant, African buffalo, hippopotamus, lechwe, tsessebe, sitatunga, blue wildebeest, South African giraffe, Nile crocodile and many more. Notably the endangered Cape wild dog survives within the Okavango Delta, exhibiting one of the richest pack densities in Africa.
During the day, you will get a flight transfer from one camp to next. Also, there, you will join many exiting activities offered.
Moremi Game Reserve is a Game Reserve in Botswana. It rests on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and was named after Chief Moremi of the BaTawana tribe. The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, which create some startling and unexpected contrasts.
This day is filled with activities, but you can also relax at the camp.
The Moremi Game Reserve,presents insights and views even for the most experienced of travellers. It is home to nearly 500 species of bird (from water birds to forest dwellers), and a vast array of other species of wildlife including Cape buffalo, Angolan giraffe and many more.
After enjoying another good breakfast under the African trees, you will be transferred by flight to Maun, from where you will depart back home.
