16 nights

DAY 1
Fly overnight from London via Johannesburg to Maun

DAYS 2 to 4
Fly on deep into the OKAVANGO DELTA to a private concession on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve, an area rich in wildlife and with prolific birdlife. From Pom Pom Camp game viewing along palm-fringed channels, lagoons and the islands is by mokoro, boat and vehicle.
The attractively designed camp has nine spacious safaris tents under thatched roofs, one of which can accommodate four people.

DAYS 5 to 7
Fly on to Kasane in the north of the country where the lawns of Kubu Lodge extend down to the banks of the Chobe River. The comfortable individual chalets are set on platforms under the trees with views of the river.
The property is on the doorstep of CHOBE NATIONAL PARK, renowned for its vast herds of elephant and buffalo. As well as taking traditional early morning or afternoon game drives into the park, game viewing can also be by boat on the river. It is also possible to go fishing and try your luck for a tigerfish or bream while watching resident crocodiles and hippos with elephant, buffalo and antelope coming to drink.

DAYS 8 to 10
It takes only about an hour and a half to drive across the border into Zimbabwe and to the Victoria Falls Hotel. This old-style colonial hotel is the closest to the VICTORIA FALLS which are within easy walking distance, as is the thriving and busy town where adrenaline activities such as white water rafting and bungy jumping as well as more sedate ones like elephant back and horse-riding safaris can be arranged. The Falls can also be viewed from the air on a Flight of Angels by plane, helicopter or even microlight!

DAYS 11 to 13
Another transfer on a good road will take you into the heart of HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, a magnificent area with a variety of terrain resulting in very rewarding game viewing. There is a water hole in front of Somalisa Camp and you will be almost within touching distance of elephants as they drink! Guided walks and traditional game drives are led by passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush.
The camp has breath-taking views of the savannah plains from its location on an acacia island at the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain. While this is an authentic bush camp, the six tents and the main area are all elegantly furnished and it is a wonderful spot in which to relax.

DAYS 14 and 15
Your last stop on this amazing safari is to the south of Bulawayo in the MATOPOS, an area of spectacular granite masses known as whalebacks and castle kopjes. Thousands of years ago the !San bushmen recorded their lives on the walls of caves and on the granite surfaces and the whole area is now held in reverential awe by the local communities. The wooded valleys and hills of the MATOBO NATIONAL PARK support diverse flora, prolific birdlife and some game - both black and white rhino can be tracked on foot and there is a high concentration of leopard.
Within the park and cleverly tucked away in an ancient bushman cave, Camp Amalinda nestles amongst the huge boulders. Views from the nine thatched rooms, the lounge and dining room are exceptional and even the bar and sun loungers by the large pool have views over a waterhole and down the valley. Take time to enjoy the mystical spirituality of the Matobo Hills and a soothing massage in the Heritage Spa!

DAY 16
Fly from Bulawayo via Johannesburg overnight to London

What About?

Extend your trip to include the GREAT ZIMBABWE ruins at Masvingo. Said to be the largest stone structure ever built south of the Sahara, it has a long history with many rulers inhabiting it since the first stones were laid in AD1100. The strange carved soapstone birds found there have given Zimbabwe its national symbol. Accommodation would be at a charming guest house - Norma Jean - which overlooks nearby Lake Mutirikwe.
