NOTE
Arrival in Maun and transfer to the lodge
Your driver will meet you at the airport in Maun and escort you to your lodge. In the evening we meet as a group and discuss tomorrow. Until then, you can explore the beautiful area around your accommodation on your own or take a look at the city.

Overnight at the Island Safari Lodge in Maun
Drive: 15 km, 30 min
1st highlight: Safaris in the Okavango Delta
Starting in Maun, we travel along the southwestern side of the delta to the "Pan Handles". The Okavango Delta is the only inland delta in the world: the annual fresh water flood is distributed over 15,000 km² of sand in a network of lagoons and canals. We drive over the western flood plains to our lodge.

2nd highlight: Mokoro canoe tour
The Mokoro is a traditional dugout canoe that offers space for 2 people each. It is steered by the "Poler" at the rear, which maneuvers the boat up the river with a pole. On this scenic journey we have endless opportunities to take photos of the colorful bird life and the animal inhabitants of the delta.

3rd highlight: wilderness hike
During our ride on the mokoro, we stop for lunch on a small island and from there take a longer walk in the nature. With a little luck we will discover endangered species such as rhinos, cheetahs, African wild dogs and lions in this unique nature reserve.

Overnight in the Guma Lagoon in the Okavango Delta
Drive: 320 km, a total of 4.5 h of driving time on roads partly riddled with potholes
1st highlight: boat trip over the "Pan Handle" to Seronga
We climb the mokoro canoes again and let us float over the Okavango Pan Handle. We see the beautiful birds and watch the tiger fish swimming in the water. These are considered to be the most important fish in the region and are known for their fearsome, tooth-reinforced mouth.

2nd highlight: Safari in the Moremi Game Reserve
Chiefs Island is the largest land mass within Moremi and was the best hunting ground for the local tribes only a few years ago. We spend a few days here on safaris and explore elephants, hippos, buffalo, lions and other animals.

Overnight in the Elephant Pools Lounge
Drive: 150 km, 4 h driving time with a total travel time of approx. 10 h
Highlight: Visiting the Makgadikgadi Pans - full day
The shimmering salt flats of Makgadikgadi appear as gleaming white, endless plains. With the start of the rainy season, the landscape changes dramatically. While thousands of zebras and other wild animals move into the now nutritious grassy landscape, huge flocks of pink flamingos land in the shallow water of the plain.

Overnight at Nata Lodge
Drive: 320 km, 4 h driving time with a total travel time of 5 h
1st highlight: Safari in the Chobe National Park
The Chobe River is a famous part of Botswana's flora and fauna and will be the focus of the next 2 days. It flows leisurely along the northern border of the Chobe National Park and attracts some of the largest herds of elephants in Africa.

2nd highlight: sunset cruise
We use the evening and drive off again to watch elephants drinking and splashing in the water of the river. In the light of the setting sun, this fantastic spectacle seems almost like a dream.

Overnight in Thebe River Safaris
Drive: 300 km, 4 h driving time with a total journey time of 4.5 h
Highlight: Victoria Falls - all day
These majestic waterfalls are among the 7 wonders of the world. The species-rich rainforest, which is poured by the "mist" of the falls, surrounds the area and offers the colorful diversity of birds a wonderful home. Here you have numerous opportunities to spend your days: for example, with white water rafting, bungee jumping or simply a relaxed exploration of the Waterfalls and rainforest.

Overnight at Shearwater Explorers Village
Drive: 70 km, 1 h driving time with a total journey time of approx. 3 h
