Itinerary

Detailed breakdown

Day 1-2: From Namibia to Botswana | 1 Night

Up arrow
Ghanzi, Botswana

Meet your guides in Namibia's capital of Windhoek before beginning your journey with a scenic drive to the Buitepos border, where you cross into Botswana. Once at your destination, Ghanzi Trail Blazers, you can meet with the local San community, join in on traditional dancing, go on a guided tour to learn the local way of life, or take a dip in the old quarry.

Day 2-3: Discover Okavango Delta | 1 Night

Up arrow
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Start your day early as you head to Maun - the gateway to the magnificent Okavango Delta - where you will spend the night at Situtanga Camp. Kick back after a day on the road with a refreshing drink at the campfire and a wholesome meal.

Day 3-5: Camp under a canopy of stars | 1 Night

Up arrow
Makgadikgadi, Botswana

Travel into the heart of the Okavango Delta, the largest freshwater wetland in Africa and a remarkable oasis set amidst Botswana's semi-desert wilderness. You will spend two nights camping, and if the water levels allow, you can look forward to exploring the Delta by mokoro canoe. Guided nature walks take you on wildlife tracking adventures and to meet local people at nearby villages. In the Delta you will find one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife on the continent, with inhabitants ranging from hippo, elephant and buffalo to various species of antelope and a prolific birdlife.

Day 5-6: The salt pans of the Kalahari | 1 Night

Up arrow
Botswana

Today you will continue your travels to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans for a night at Nata Lodge – set among a mangrove of mokolwane palm trees. Summer rains in this region mean lots of good grazing, filling up of the floodplains and pans, phenomenal birdlife and the arrival of massed herds of zebra. Wild dog, cheetah, lion and Kalahari wildlife can be spotted year-round.

Day 6-7: Safari at Chobe National Park | 1 Night

Up arrow

Continue to Thebe River Safaris Lodge located in the Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. The Park is known around the world for its predators, but the elephant population is even more remarkable. Huge herds of these noble beasts roam its floodplains, woodlands and grasslands. Game drives and river cruises present great opportunities to get up close to these gentle giants as they make their way down to the banks of the Chobe River to quench their thirst.

Day 7-8: Adventure at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

Up arrow

Bid farewell to Botswana and enter Zimbabwe, home to one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World. You will spend the night at A’zambezi River Lodge located on the banks of the Zambezi River in Victoria Falls Town. Known as the adrenaline capital of Africa, the town offers world-class bungee jumping and white-water rafting, pulse-racing canoe trips, and unforgettable gorge-swinging. There are also plenty of activities to keep the more cautious enthralled, with a microlight, helicopter or light aircraft flight over the Falls and a relaxing cruise down the Zambezi River to fully take in these majestic surrounds.

Thank you for all your help in setting up our trip! We had a fantastic time. Nomad took care of us very well! The food, the guides, the truck, everything was great. We saw some amazing things, had some amazing experiences, met some great people! I'll never forget our time in the Delta, especially. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Again, thanks for everything!

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity she posted this on Linked in under Go2africa work experience “Gelle helped us organise a safari tour and an overland expedition on two separate occasions. Her indepth knowledge of Southern Africa never cease to amaze me. Knowing how things work in TIA style in Africa ("This is Africa" - a term I picked up during my time there), she always triple confirms everything for us and is often going out of her way to make sure things run as smoothly as possible. I am very thankful and count myself lucky to have found such a good agent.” November 12, 2012

Today is my first day back in the office and I am depressed to be here. Africa was a stunning experience, with each day and location more amazing than the last. Many highlights: sunrise at Sossusvlei Dune 45 and an adventurous trek on foot to Deadvlei across a rain river created by record rains, the 2 days bush camping in the delta via 2-hour makoro ride (and hanging with the makoro polers for a couple of days), sunset game cruise along the Chobe River, and the awe inspired by Vic Falls, particularly the 1/2 day I spent on the Zambia side. After roughing it camping for so long, it was also nice to end the trip with a nice meal and some beers at the Vic Falls Hotel! Everything went perfectly. No issues with health (although the same could not be said for others in my group), border crossings, safety, or anything. I don't even have mosquito bites or sunburn! Thank you for everything you did to organize my trip, and for answering my millions of questions. I'm excited to line up my next trip as soon as possible- Im thinking a combination of Masai Mara/Serengeti from Kenya and into Uganda/Rwanda to see the gorillas. I'll be in back in touch! Africa is just incredible. Thanks again. Andrew
