Safari Overview

This classic, well priced safari takes you to two of Botswana's unique regions and ends with a couple of nights in Victoria Falls.

Start off at Africa's largest inland delta and Botswana's latest addition to UNESCO world heritage sites – the impressive, unique and pristine Okavango Delta, which is incomparable with any other destination. Then fly on to the Chobe Riverfront, famous for its vast quantities of all forms of wildlife, where you will enjoy both land and river safaris.

Finish off with a bucket list for many - the Victoria Falls, another world heritage site full of fun activities and of course, the mighty Victoria Falls. In honesty, two nights at each location is not long enough but if you're short of time and it's variety and splendour you are after then this package is ideal. It gets you into the right places at the right price! You can of course add on nights if you want.

Destination Okavango Delta, Botswana
Day 1 to 2

Okavango Delta

Lying in the middle of the largest expanse of sand on earth the Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s most amazing, sensitive and complex environments supporting a spectacle of wilderness and wildlife. Unique as one of the world’s few inland deltas, the placid waters and lush indigenous forests offer a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. The Okavango Delta offers a number of activities for the visitor; game viewing, birding and fishing are all on offer. One can experience this magical world of islands and waterways from land, air and water.

Highlights include the elusive Sitatunga antelope which has found refuge in this pristine wetland ecosystem, while birds such as the African fish eagle, Pel's fishing owl and many others provide a spectacular display.

Overnight: Pom Pom Camp

In the heart of the Okavango Delta within the MATSEBE concession area, Pom Pom Camp is another jewel in Botswana’s crown! Pom Pom Camp is short 20-25minutes scenic flight over Okavango Delta from Maun.

The camp overlooks a scenic lagoon and is quietly nestled under grove shady trees. Here hippo grunt and frolic in front of camp’s permanent lagoon that is surrounded by miles of reeds. In a clear water oasis “makoros” offer you a wonderful means of viewing wildlife as you glide between palm fringed islands.

The camp has 9 large luxury safari tents, all with en-suite showers and flush toilets; the bathrooms are enclosed for privacy, security and importantly offer you a truly unique bush adventure.

In the main thatched building you will find a cosy bar, lounge and table settings for imaginative meals prepared by the safari chefs. Activities on offer at Pom Pom Camp are game drives, night drive, mokoro excursions, boat cruises, game walks and fishing.

This is a camp for the safari traditionalist!

Notes: Day 1 & 2

DAY 1
On arrival to Maun Airport you will be met by one of our representatives and checked onto your light aircraft flight to PomPom airstrip in the heart of the Okavango. After settling into your room and enjoying a bite to eat and possibly a rest, spend the rest of the afternoon with an activity of your choice. This can either be a Makoro cruise, a game walk, a game drive or a motorboat cruise. A night Game Drive is also recommended.

DAY 2
Spend the morning and afternoon doing an activity of your choice. Options are a Makoro cruise, fishing, a game walk, a game drive or a motorboat cruise, in the evening a night drive is also recommended. Your informative guides will teach you about the flora and fauna of the area, which is fascinating!

Activities at Pom Pom

Game Drives
Pom Pom is one of the camps in the Okavango Delta that is able to offer game drives within our private concession area. Morning and evening game drives in the company of our qualified guides will give you the opportunity to view all the big game and night life of this environment.

Fishing
Fishing is also possible at Pom Pom, and our guides will be happy to take you to their secret spots to try for African Pike and a variety of Bream species.

Makoro trips
A Makoro or Mokoro (mekoro plural) trip is a fantastic way to experience the wonders of the Okavango Delta. In the company of a professional poler with vast experience of the Delta, you will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of this unique habitat and learn about the waterways and wildlife.






Destination Chobe National Park, Botswana
Day 3 to 4

Chobe National Park

The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, renowned for its reliable and diverse game viewing. Safaris are conducted both by boat and on land. This section of the park is best known for its elephant and hippo populations but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them.

Overnight: Chobe Safari Lodge

Chobe Safari Lodge is situated in Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River, just a short 10-minute drive to the entrance gate of the Chobe National Park making it an ideal choice.

This popular lodge has 66 bedrooms and 8 rondavels, a large central eating and entertainment area, with an inviting swimming pool. The riverside bar is a great place to enjoy a few drinks before or after your game activities. The bedrooms all face the river and are big and comfortable, with fans and air-conditioning, along with all other necessary amenities. The staff are friendly and helpful and the lodge is well organised. Wild but habituated warthogs, mongoose and monkeys roam freely on the lawns providing endless entertainment from the balcony of your room, while the variety of birds is an absolute delight.

Notes: Day 3 & 4

DAY 3
After a final early morning activity and breakfast at Pom Pom, you will be taken to the airstrip for your flight to Kasane Airport, where you will be met by a representative from Chobe Safari Lodge who will transfer you to the lodge - only 10 minutes away. After checking in you will meet your personal activities advisor who will explain how the game drives, cruises and other activities work, along with the times and places of departure. Lunch, is a delicious buffet spread or you can take a pool snack for the not so hungry.

Freshen up and rest before meeting at the jetty for the Sunset Cruise at 15h00. This is a 3-hour cruise up the Chobe River – you will have a chance to see elephants playing and swimming in the water or simply enjoying the green grass found along the banks. Pods of hippos are dispersed amongst the elephants and you will find yourself not knowing which way to look as the abundance of all species of game surrounds you.

There is a cash bar on the cruise if you feel you would like to enjoy a cold drink as you watch a magnificent sunset aboard the boat before returning to the lodge in time to freshen up before dinner.

DAY 4
An early morning start to the day with a Safari Game Drive departing from the lodge around about 06h00-06h30. The early mornings are the best time to find the cats as they make their way back into the shade for the heat of the day – often after making a kill in the night. Prides of Lions are very often seen on these early morning game drives.

You will return to the lodge around about 09h00 in time for a Full English breakfast which is normally welcomed by all. The heat of the day can be spent enjoying the swimming pool or relaxing in the cool of your air conditioned room.

Once the day has cooled down, make your way to the jetty for a second afternoon sunset cruise. No two cruises are the same and the wildlife experiences are always exciting and rewarding. The sheer abundance and variety of animal and birdlife will keep you fixated. The notorious sound of the laughing hippo, never very far away, will add to the overall magical experience.

**Please note that the above activity schedule is a guideline and you can tailor-make your itinerary with the camp managers onsite, to suit your exact needs.

Destination Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Day 5 to 7

Victoria Falls

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.

Overnight: Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is without doubt one of the most popular places to stay in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The Lodge is situated on a high plateau overlooking the vastness of the Zambezi National Park, giving you the superb feeling of being out in the remote African wilderness, yet a short 15 minute drive takes you into the town centre and the Victoria Falls entrance.

A waterhole, well frequented by wildlife is situated directly below the lodge which can been viewed from most of the bedrooms, the bars, the pool deck, restaurants and lounges. A constant stream of animals coming down to drink provides 24hr entertainment (the waterhole is floodlit at night).

The 72-room Lodge is rich in ambience and offers sublime hospitality. All the bedrooms at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge are en-suite and the sliding glass doors open onto balconies with uninterrupted views of the National park, some rooms overlooking the waterhole. The rooms all have soft natural fabrics and brightly coloured African paintings giving them a wonderful contemporary safari lodge feeling. The staff are warm and personable providing faultless delivery to guests during their stay.
