Day 1: Windhoek - Capricorn
After arriving at Hosea Kutako International Airport, 40km outside Windhoek, we will welcome you and take you to town. After a short sight seeing tour you get the chance to do some shopping and have a relaxing lunch while we finalise the last formalities of the tour.

On the way we make a stop over at a small holding to taste some wine, cultivated in the Otavi Valley. Just before Grootfontein we look at the biggest meteorite known to man. 50 km north of Grootfontein we set up our camp at Roy's.
Day 3: Roy's Camp Tsumkwe/Sikereti
At Tsumkwe we see Bushmen and pass by some of the few traditional kraals left to them. In the Kaudom National Park we do some game viewing and a bit of sand driving. This is not a place to enter without an experienced guide to navigate the harsh terrain, as this is a remote and difficult area to drive through. In the rainy season it can prove even more difficult.
Day 4: Tsumkwe/Sikereti Aha Hills
After an early breakfast we break our camp to depart for Botswana. We drive to a beautiful group of mountains the Aha Hills, where we experience a typical African sunset. We do a short walk around the campsite, where we will stay for tonight. A traditional African dinner is served around the fire.
Day 5: Aha Hills Drotskys Cave
After breakfast we depart for Drotsky's Cave, deeper into Botswana. A very beautiful cave with lots of pillars, and old dolomite caverns. To our personal feeling, this cave is far more beautiful than Cango Caves (South Africa) as this is still untouched and rugged.
Day 6: Drotskys Cave - Tsidolo Hills
After breaking up our camp we will drive through open savannas deeper into the Kalahari on our way to Tsidolo Hills. Age old bushman drawings, estimated 100 to 4500 years old as well as roughly 400 sites can be seen today. This area got declared as a world heritage site in 2001.
Day 7: Tsidolo Hills - Camp Kwando
Today we depart for the border post that will take us back into Namibia and the Caprivi stripe. On the way we will have a game drive through the Mahango Game Park and lunch at the Popa Falls at the Okavango. After driving through the beginning of the Caprivi to the Kwando River we will put up our camp at Camp Kwando. Here we can do a sunset boat cruise on the Kwando River.
Day 8: Camp Kwando - Victoria Falls
We get up early to drive to Victoria Falls. On our way we pass through the Chobe National Park and do some game viewing en route. After arriving at Victoria Falls we do a tour along the falls and the rest of the day is spend at leisure. We have a nice sunset at the Chobe Safari Lodge.
Tonight we overnight in a small private Pension.
Day 9: Victoria Falls - Chobe
After breakfast we visit a local craft market and leave for our next campsite in Botswana. Arriving around lunch time we put up our camp and have a relaxing afternoon. Today we enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River, rounded off with a super sunset over the floodplain of the Chobe River. The area hosts a wide variety of game that can be seen from the boat as we sit back and relax.
Day 10: Chobe
Today we depart for our wilderness campsite on the banks of the Chobe river. A game drive into the Chobe National Park takes us to our campsite. Elephant, Buffalo, Lion and many more can be seen on the way.
We set up our camp inside the park and experience nature at its best.
Day 11: Chobe - Savuti
After breakfast, we depart in a southerly direction to Savuti. We do some game viewing on the way. Here the lion is known to even bring down small elephants. The roads can be very muddy and wet during the rainy season, in dry season very dusty and sandy. Tonight we put up our camp deep in the bush of Savuti.
Day 12: Savuti - Moremi
We head for Moremi Game Reserve where the day is spent game viewing. Our camp for tonight is Xaxanaka, a small island. In the rainy season Hippo's, Lion, Elephant and many more game can be seen in the area. Many travelers regard the Moremi Game Reserve as the most spectacular and beautiful Game Park in southern Africa. It covers more than 1000 square kilometers of grassy flood plains in the north-eastern corner of the Okavango Delta. Apart from savannah, the terrain includes winding waterways where Hippos bath and play.
Day 13: Moremi - Ghanzi
Early morning we depart on our way towards Maun. We enjoy lunch in the Botswana way and drive on towards Ghanzi. Near Ghanzi we visit the Bushmen of the Inner Kalahari.
