Itinerary

Days 1 - 2: The Delta Panhandle

After arriving at Maun Airport you will fly by shared charter to the far northern Okavango Delta. Kadizora Camp lies on grassy floodplains close to the delta’s Panhandle, offering 4X4 game drives, boating and canoe safaris. Guests can also enjoy a unique delta experience at Kadizora – a hot air balloon flight over the Okavango Delta. Unavailable at other camps, this is an excursion not to be missed.

Days 3 - 5: Discover the Khwai River

A shared charter flight takes you to the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta and Machaba Camp. A newly established tented camp with a classically colonial feel, Machaba focuses on game drives. Its location in a private concession means night drives and guided walks too. This is one of Moremi’s best game viewing regions and expert guides will search for the area’s famous leopards and wild dogs. Elephants and antelope move across the floodplains in front of camp, and guests can enjoy amazing sightings from the comfort of their luxurious suite.

Days 6 - 8: Hill-top views at Savuti

Flying by shared charter to the Chobe National Park, it’s not long before you see Chobe’s Savuti region below you, a swathe of grassland studded with isolated rocky hills. It is on one of these hills that Ghoha Hills Savuti Lodge sits and from where you’ll enjoy panoramic views. You can also look forward to sensational game viewing: Savuti is a land of lions and hyenas, enormous bull elephants and summer herds of migrating buffalo and zebra. Bushman rock art adorns the hills, adding an intriguing human aspect to this primeval landscape.

Days 9 - 10: A Royal Victoria Falls Experience

A short flight to Kasane is followed by a road transfer across the border and into Zimbabwe. Your destination is Ilala Lodge Hotel, set within sight of the mist rising from Victoria Falls. One of the most popular hotels in the area, The Ilala Lodge is within walking distance of the falls and boasts an extensive list of facilities.

Day 11: The Journey Ends

After a last Ilala Lodge breakfast, transfer overland to Victoria Falls Airport for your onward flight. If you wish to extend your time at Victoria Falls, just let us know.

Above expectations

Excellent communications and service. We dealt with Sabrina and she is awesome. The safari tour was amazing, i can highly recommend going to Elephant Plains. Its a very special place run by awesome people.

Werner
They kept us fully informed and updated throughout planning, travel, etc.

It was excellent all around. Everything worked out well. An experience of a lifetime! The game viewing rides were fun and very informative.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

I have a severe intolerance to chemical products such a fabric softener. This can create difficulties when you travel. But the team at Safari Online made sure that all the destinations on our itinerary met our unusual demands. Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

All very close you would not believe how close you get to the wildlife. We are so happy that this was organised for as we have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari on line. Would recommend Safari on line to organise your holiday.

Perfect

We are six older but experienced travellers who usually do our own planning. Luck led us to Safari Online and Walter. His ideas proved spot on. First to Batonka in Victoria Falls, then the Eco lodge In Savuti and finally Ngoma Safari Lodge. Each was different and special in their own way. The game drives from the lodges were wonderful, each of our guides Ren at Savuti and Kenneth at Ngoma were informative and experienced. If there was game to be found they found it.
Throughout our planning Safari Online have been helpful, always answering emailed questions, no matter how basic, straightaway. We’ve had probably our best ever holiday in years of travel, everything went smoothly. Pickups and transfers were on time. Staff in all the places we stayed were friendly and helpful. I can’t think of one adverse remark except maybe seeing a lion that wasn’t asleep, though I think if it could have been arranged Walter would have done so.

A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Working with Walter was a great experience. He listened to us and helped us build a vacation that exceeded all of our expectations. We really appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail.

Dan (USA)
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional.  Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Neena
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.
