Itinerary

Days 1 - 2: The vast Makgadikgadi Park

After arriving at Maun Airport in Botswana, you’ll transfer to a shared charter flight to the Kalahari. Your destination is Lerro La Tau – Footprint of the Lion – on the edge of the enigmatic Makgadikgadi Park. This elegant lodge sits above the Boteti River, allowing for great game viewing from the comfort of its viewing decks. Professional guides open up the secrets of the Kalahari on game drives and interpretive walks. Between November and May, large herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra pass through the area, attracting predators. Night drives and bird watching complete the picture.

Days 3 - 4: From Desert to Delta

Flying from Leroo La Tau, you’ll soon see the expanse of the Okavango Delta opening up below you. At the heart of the Kalahari, the world’s largest inland delta is a wildlife paradise. You touch down in the Moremi Game Reserve and enjoy a game drive to Xakanaxa Camp. Set in a rewarding corner of Moremi, Xakanaxa’s luxurious tented suites sit under giant trees and overlook a hippo-filled lagoon. Game drives with experienced guides showcase the area’s wildlife. Elephant, buffalo and giraffe are among the heavyweight sightings and Xakanaxa has a name for leopard and wild dog. The bird watching is excellent all year round.

Days 5 - 6: Savute – Land of Giants

The wild heart of the Chobe National Park, Savute has a reputation for its super-sized sightings. Enormous bull elephants are among the signature sightings along with Savute’s large lion and hyena populations, locked in an eternal conflict. Giant baobab trees stud the landscape; eagles and vultures patrol the sky, and in summer great herds of migrating zebra arrive. Enjoy it all from the comfort of Savute Safari Lodge, its chalets set on the flowing Savute Channel. Here you’ll enjoy armchair game viewing and gourmet meals under the stars.

Day 7: The Smoke that Thunders – Victoria Falls

A short flight to Kasane is followed by a road transfer across the nearby border and into Zimbabwe. It’s then an hour’s drive to Victoria Falls and Ilala Lodge, a popular and friendly hotel at the centre of town. A 10-minute walk from Ilala will take you to the falls and the hotel is conveniently located near markets and shops if you want to stock up on souvenirs. If you have time, a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River makes a great end to the safari.

Day 8: The Journey Ends

An overland transfer to Victoria Falls Airport ends this safari but if you want to extend your time at Africa’s adventure capital then simply let us know. Add on a few more days at Victoria Falls and enjoy activities ranging from whitewater rafting and elephant-back safaris to canoe trips and scenic flights. Other popular activities include walking with lions and picnic trips to Livingstone Island, perched right at the edge of the thundering falls.

Reviews

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!

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!

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.

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
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.

Karen (USA)
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.
