This morning we wake early and game drive north through the park to the Pafuri region. The northern Kruger is

Valley the vegetation changes to forest and birdlife is prolific. We exit the park, late in the afternoon, and overnight at
a lodge just outside the Kruger.

Accommodation: Tented lodge

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

Entering Zimbabwe at the Beit Bridge border post, we travel north to our overnight stop. The following morning we

informative walk with a local guide.

Named after a local Nhanzwa chief, Hwange National Park is the largest Park in Zimbabwe occupying roughly 14 650

river flows lazily along the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park attracting some of the largest herds of
elephant in Africa. A highlight of any trip to the Chobe is the afternoon game viewing cruise where we hope to see
large herds of elephants and other wildlife as they quench their thirst at the end of the day.

We transfer into the delta by open 4WD game viewing vehicle. Our local guides will take us deep into the heart of the
Okavango Delta on Mokoro (dugout canoes) to our pre-erected tented camp. The delta forms as rain water from the
Angolan highlands flows out over the flat Kalahari Desert sands, forming a delicate, green oasis for birds and wildlife.
Our camp is on a remote island in this amazingly dynamic environment and we enjoy bush walks, bird watching and
swimming in the clear waters. Camping with our local guides we learn more about their lifestyle and culture.

expense).

Heading south from Maun, we cross the wide open spaces of the Kalahari Desert on our way to Khama Rhino
Sanctuary. This is a community based wildlife project established in 1992 to assist in protecting rhino and restore an
area formerly teeming with wildlife to its natural state. The reserve provides economic benefits to the local Batswana
community through sustainable use of natural resources. We hope to spot rhino on an afternoon game drive.
