“Excellent trip - really enjoyed it”
Anna's review for another Explore tour
5 - Excellent
“The staff were helpful and courteous throughout. Even though the first hotel was dire (none of the electric sockets worked in the rooms and the hotel was pretty shoddy) I cannot fault the staff. The last hotel and the beach were great. Several of us would have liked to have an extra night or two at this hotel in order to wind down and enjoy the facilities!”
Mark's review for another Explore tour

“Great country bought to life by a legendary leader”
Select Tour Version:
Arrive in Livingstone and check-in to your hotel. Often referred to as the adventure capital of Zambia, Livingstone offers a variety of land, air and water-based activities in the surrounding area.
Accommodation
  • Simple lodge
Visit one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, known locally as The Smoke that Thunders. The Zambezi River plummets over a sheer cliff wall spanning more than 1,600m and drops approximately 100m into the abyss below. Like David Livingstone before us, we become aware of the falls long before we see it. Plumes of water vapour rise like smoke into the sky creating small clouds, all accompanied by a deafening roar.

This afternoon is left free to take advantage of the many activities that Victoria Falls offers including an optional half day game drive into Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park to search for white rhino, trying out whitewater rafting on the Zambezi, enjoying a scenic helicopter flight over the falls or perhaps experiencing a cultural village trip. Alternatively you may want to take advantage of the more sedate attractions such as the National Museum or the Railway Museum (or to give it its full title, The Zambezi Sawmills Locomotive Sheds National Monument!)
Meals
  • Breakfast
Accommodation
  • Simple lodge
Leaving our lodge this morning, we take a local boat across the Zambezi River and base ourselves just outside the Serondela area of the Chobe National Park. During our stay in Kasane, there will be time to enjoy a late afternoon game drive into Chobe National Park.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Accommodation
  • Simple lodge
The northern Chobe area of Serondela is the heart of elephant country. Up to 35,000 elephants live here, the largest number in any African park. On our game drive this morning we hope to watch huge herds in and around the great Chobe River, which also teems with hippo and crocodile as well as a variety of fish including the tiger fish (freshwater barracuda). This afternoon our mode of transport switches to a boat as we take to the water and view the wildlife from a different perspective. The Chobe River is one of the Zambezi's main tributaries, and home to an abundance of wildlife. The area is also famed for its beautiful scenery and magnificent red and gold sunsets.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Accommodation
  • Simple lodge
Taking advantage of an early start this morning, we head west via the Caprivi Strip in Namibia, to reach our houseboat on the waters of the Okavango River where we arrive in the mid afternoon. The mighty Okavango is the third largest river in Africa and its delta area covers 16,000 square kilometres of crystal clear channels, a myriad of ephemeral lakes and ever changing islands. The river flows south east from the Angolan highlands over 1,000 km away, taking up to 6 months to reach the delta area which floods on an annual cycle.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Standard boat
During our time on the river, there will be an excellent possibility of seeing game as we cruise past submerging pods of hippos, while crocodiles bask in the shallows and on the riverbanks. Birdlife in the area is prolific and local fishermen are often seen aboard their traditional dugout canoes, known locally as mokoros. We include a boat trip to experience the areas of the Delta that are harder to reach, cruising into channels where hippos and crocodiles are usually sighted. We return to our houseboat in the golden light of the late afternoon where we can enjoy a traditional 'sundowner'. This is a home away from home where you can enjoy the surroundings of this part of Africa.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Standard boat
Leaving our houseboat this morning, we make our way to the intriguing Tsodilo Hills. The San Bushmen believe that this was the site of the first creation and so it is considered a holy and sacred place. The area has an astonishing 3,500 rock paintings over 350 different sites which all celebrate this event. There are four mountains that jut out of the expanse of the surrounding land and the San Bushmen believe that the bigger rock, the male, has a wife and child, but that he left his wife for a younger wife who now lingers in the background. After our visit here we drive to the town of Maun, located on the southern reaches of the Okavango Delta and the gateway to the Moremi Game Reserve.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Lunch
Accommodation
  • Standard hotel
We drive into the Moremi Game Reserve and to our camp. Tucked into the north-eastern sector of the Okavango Delta, Moremi is thought to be the country's most beautiful game area and is rated as one of Africa's greatest wildlife sanctuaries. It covers an enormous wilderness area composed of permanent swamps, islands, forest and dry land. Exceptional though the geography of the Delta may be, it is the amazing wildlife of the waterways that draws many visitors and we plan to do a late game drive this afternoon before our first night's camping experience.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Simple camping
With a number of game drives planned for today, we get the chance to experience one of Africa's most natural and unspoiled wonderlands in the park with hippo, crocodile and a great variety of birds all seen in the Delta, as well as the elusive sitatunga antelope. This place is an ornithologist's paradise with fish eagle, kingfisher, heron, stork, egret, weaver and bee-eater all regularly seen.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Simple camping
We spend our time on game drives in search of the wildlife of the region, with the larger mammals like elephant, giraffe and zebra being spotted on the flood plains as well as predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Simple camping
We take a leisurely drive back to Maun with the afternoon free for optional activities or just to relax at our hotel. Tonight allows for a cultural evening where we can sample hand made crafts directly from budding artisans, enjoy folklore stories from a local storyteller around a crackling fire and meet local children as part of a grassroots project that builds life skills.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Dinner
Accommodation
  • Standard hotel
Your trip ends today in Maun after breakfast. Depending upon the schedule of your flight, you may wish to spend some additional time relaxing before heading back home. Please note, game is less plentiful over departures in December plus the Victoria Falls has less volume of water travelling over falls.
