DAY 1 - 3
Hwange National Park
You will start this trip by meeting your driver guide who will transfer you to Hwange National Park, where you will meet your guide from Somalisa. You will be staying in a luxury tented camp. Over the next few days you will put yourself in authentic African safari. Morning and evening game drives allow you to capture excellent photos of large elephant and buffalo herds, as well as great chances of seeing lion, leopard, cheetah and a multitude of other plains game and bird species. During your stay you will also visit the Painted (wild) dog center run by volunteers.
DAY 4 - 6
Hwange To Mythical Lake Kariba
Today you will set off for the following 2 nights into the Okavango in a traditional Makoro (a dugout canoe) with your camping equipment and guide. The Makoro rides are combined with bush walks for better game viewing. Oddballs Makoro Trail is one of the greatest wilderness adventure camping trails of the world.
Hop into the boat with an experienced boatman, a mine of knowledge on the waterways and the wildlife, as he punts you through the delta. Amazing game sightings and endless water are seductive and you will fall in love with the magic of the delta. Watch the sunrise, enjoy a delicious bush brunch and a dinner under the starry sky. A sundowner stop on a small, unexplored island will bring a close to your unique adventure – pure Africa.
It is home to a large variety of game from Big Five (excluding the Rhino), hippopotamus and crocodile, as well as giraffe and antelope including the rare lechwe, tsessebe and sitatunga. The delta is a birding paradise with over 450 species.
