ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to Ghanzi, Botswana
(Ghanzi Trail Blazers or similar)(600km)

Our tours leave from Windhoek. You will be collected between 07:30 & 08:00 from anywhere within the capital as we embark on our long journey. We will use the Trans-Kalahari Highway. It is a very good road, although somewhat monotonous. You will have sufficient time to enjoy the landscapes of Kalahari. Warthogs, baboons, antelopes (including kudu) and birds of prey may be seen along the road. After completing the immigration formalities at the border post we continue into Botswana to our night camp in the Kalahari Desert. Most likely there will be a clear night and as the campfire fades we will be able to lean back in our chairs and marvel at the sight of millions of stars in the sky while we listen to the sounds of both small and large creatures out there in the dark.

Included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Ghanzi to Guma Lagoon
(Guma Lagoon Campsite or similar)(450km)

Situated in the northwestern area of the Okavango Delta, the Panhandle is a stretch of the Okavango River that follows a more-or-less straight course for approximately 70 kilometres before entering the wetlands. This deep channel serves as the main water source feeding the delta, while the surrounding woodlands and the river's shallow waters teem with a myriad of birds.

Early start and away towards greener pastures. We will arrive at our night camp in the early afternoon after having changed to 4-wheel drive during the last part of the trip in order to make it through the sand. Our guides and their assistants will prepare a tasty dinner and soon enough it is time to go to bed and fall asleep to the sound of night birds and perhaps one or two hippos out there in Botswana's Okavango delta.

Activities: Okavango Delta

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activities

Day 3: Guma Lagoon, Botswana
(Guma Lagoon Campsite or similar)

Today we will be awakened by a cacophony of birds, where different species succeed one another as it gets lighter. After breakfast we will move out into the delta, first by motorboat and then by canoe – mokoros. Standing in the mokoros, skillfully balancing, our polers will take us through the shallow, clear water out to one of the many islands. We will travel through lush vegetation on narrow stretches of water alternating with open water areas. We might see an elephant or two on one of the islands nearby. If we want to, we may stop for a swim at a suitable place. We will go ashore an island and enjoy a nature walk with our guide. Here we might come across some of the animals that live in the delta, including red lechwes, warthogs and elephants. Before dinner we return to our camp and a night's rest after a day full of adventures.

Activity: Okavango delta excursions with mokoro boats.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 4: Okavango Delta to Mahango Game Reserve, Namibia
(Mahangu Safari Lodge Campsite or similar)(200km)

Today we will leave Botswana and return to Namibia. We will drive to the Mahango Game Reserve, where we will enjoy a game drive and try to spot the beautiful sable antelope that occurs here. With some good fortune we might also be able to see other species that we haven't seen before on our safari, such as buffalo and roan antelope. Our night camp will be on the Okavango River with its rich bird life.

The Mahango Game Reserve is characterised by woodlands, vast floodplains and the Kavango River. It is home to a reported 99 species including a large number of elephants, lion, leopard and a variety of antelopes including the red lechwe, sable and roan. This park is an excellent destination for avid bird watchers boasting over 400 species and provides the perfect spot for visitors to catch a glimpse of crocodile and hippo in the Kavango River.

Activity: Magango Game Reserve Game Drive

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 5: Mahango to Bwabwata National Park, Namibia
(Namushasha River Lodge Campsite or similar)(250km)

Our night camp at Namushasha River Lodge is situated on the Kwando River in eastern Caprivi. The area surrounding the Kwando River is known for its protected game reserves, national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. It offers excellent game viewing with the perennial waters of the river attracting plentiful wildlife including large herds of elephant, hippos, crocodiles, red lechwe, turtles, zebra, impala, spotted-necked otters and over 400 species of bird.

Activity: Boat ride on Kwando river in afternoon

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 6: Chobe River Front, Botswana
(Chobe Safari Lodge campsite or similar) (270km)

This morning we will depart for Botswana to the Chobe Safari Lodge campsite. We aim to arrive just in time for an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe river.
The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, renowned for its diverse and abundant game viewing opportunities. This section of the park is best known for its dense concentration of wildlife including elephant and hippo populations, but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them. A visit to this area guarantees close encounters with an array of African wildlife.

Activity: Chobe Boat Cruise

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 7 & 8: Chobe to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls)
(Victoria Falls Rest Camp or similar)(100km)

This morning we will depart for Victoria Falls. We will cross the border into Zimbabwe where we will arrive at our camp at lunchtime. After setting up camp we will have lunch and then visit the magnificent Victoria Falls. We will stay 2 nights at Victoria Falls. The first afternoon we will go on a dinner cruise on the Zambezi. Dinner will be included. The second night dinner is not included. There will be time for extra activities including white water rafting, bungi jump, elephant back rides and many more. Please do talk to your guide for more information.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch (Day 7)
Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (Day 8)

Day 9: Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) to Rundu
(n'Kwazi Lodge or similar)(680km)

This is the last day of our time at Vicoria Falls. At this stage, you can choose whether to end your safari or return to Windhoek with the guide. For those continuing back to Windhoek, you will spend a night at n'Kwazi Lodge, near Rundu, overlooking the Okavango River.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10: Rundu to Windhoek
(750km)

After breakfast we check out and hit the road back to Windhoek, a long drive that will allow you to go through all the amazing pictures you have taken, and to decide on any last minute souvenirs. Once you are in Windhoek, later in the afternoon, your guide will drop you off at your accommodation. We want to thank you for booking a tour with Blue Crane Safaris and hope to see you on our next venture.
