Day 1 | Tuesday
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Departing Windhoek we travel north through extensive cattle farming areas and bushland to the Etosha National Park, famous for its vast amount of wildlife and unique landscape. In the late afternoon, once we have reached our camp located on the outside of the National Park, we have the rest of the day at leisure.
Overnight at Mokuti Etosha Lodge.

Day 2 | Wednesday
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
The day is devoted purely to the abundant wildlife found in the Etosha National Park, which surrounds a parched salt desert known as the Etosha Pan. The park is home to 4 of the Big Five – elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. Game viewing in the park is primarily focussed around the waterholes, some of which are spring-fed and some supplied from a borehole, ideal places to sit and watch over 114 different game species, or for an avid birder, more than 340 bird species. An extensive network of roads links the over 30 water holes allowing visitors the opportunity of a comprehensive game viewing safari throughout the park as each different area will provide various encounters.
Overnight at Mokuti Etosha Lodge – Breakfast.

Day 3 | Thursday
KAVANGO REGION
After breakfast, we travel north-east towards Namibia’s lush Kavango region. En route, we stop at Hoba Meteorite, the world’s largest known meteorite. We continue to Rundu, known for its rich selection of hand-made wooden crafts. With its magnificent woodlands and perennial rivers, the Kavango region contrasts sharply with the rest of Namibia. Large swathes of tall woodland, riverine forests, floodplains and reed-lined channels dominate the area. This is also the area where you will see many of the traditional huts and homesteads still in popular use today. At our lodge, we can enjoy an optional Sundowner boat cruise on the Okavango River.
Overnight at Kaisosi River Lodge – Breakfast.

Day 4 | Friday
BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast, we follow the route of the Okavango River into the Zambezi Region. Most of Namibia is arid; however, this area is lush, the soil rich and the wildlife plentiful. It is a lively hotbed where one can see subsistence and cattle farming and the well-known traditional wood carvings. From the banks of the Okavango River directly at the footsteps of our lodge, we have a magnificent view onto the Popa Falls. Our lodge is situated on the banks of the Okavango River and close to the Mahango National Park where the following two nights are spent along the lush vegetation. Our rooms overlook the uninhibited Buffalo Park across the river. We can enjoy an optional late afternoon boat cruise on the Okavango River.
Overnight at Shametu River Lodge – Breakfast.

Day 5 | Saturday
BWABWATA NATIONAL PARK
After an early breakfast, we travel into the Mahango National Park. Being Namibia’s smallest but most densely populated National Park, the visit will be rewarding in terms of wildlife and bird watching. The Mahango Game Park has a high number of elephants, as well as fair numbers of antelopes which are scarce or not seen in other parts of Namibia. These include the roan and sable antelope, tsessebe and the red lechwe. The park is also home to several sitatungas. The Mahango National Park is an excellent destination for bird watching with over 400 species to be spotted.
Overnight at Shametu River Lodge – Breakfast.

Day 6 | Sunday
MUDUMU NATIONAL PARK
We depart the Mahango National park and travel across the Zambezi Region, to the lush woodlands of the Kwando River. Hundreds of elephants, large Buffalo herds and numerous antelopes roam these majestic riverine woods. With over 400 species of birds, this area counts as one of the best birding hotspots in the whole of southern Africa. Our lodge is the only accommodation located in the national park. Here you can participate in optional nature drives or boat cruises.
Overnight at Lianshulu Bush Camp- Breakfast.

Day 7 | Monday
CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast, we travel across the border to Kasane, a small and bustling town on the edge of the Chobe National Park, before crossing the Chobe River on a short but scenic boat transfer to our luxury lodge right on the edge of the river. Discover the wonders of this magical destination. At the very tip of Namibia’s Zambezi Region, the exclusivity and style of this boutique lodge is unparalleled. Here wildlife roams freely in profusion and diversity. In the afternoon embark on a guided Chobe River sunset cruise along the national park to experience the multitude of game species found along the banks of the Chobe River.
Overnight at Chobe Water Villas – Breakfast, lunch, dinner and activities.

Day 8 | Tuesday
DEPARTURE
Today we take part in a game drive through the Chobe National Park or any other activity offered by the lodge’s activity centre. Enjoy the sunrise before departing on an open game drive with lodge rangers, exploring the national park and see the forage of wildlife along the Chobe River. Return to the lodge for breakfast served on the terrace overlooking the river. For guests departing to Victoria Falls, a transfer takes you across the border. Guests joining the Botswana Highlights will partake in a guided excursion to Victoria Falls on foot. Afterwards, visit a craft market where we can purchase or look at handmade crafts of the local inhabitants. We return to Kasane, where the remainder of the day is at leisure.
