Routing:

Already on your first day you will leave civlisation and the big town of Johannesburg behind. Crossing the Limpopo River on your second day you will leave South Africa and enter Botswana. You will pull in at the Khama Rhino Reserve, a research station around the last Black Rhinos in Botswana.

Following the virtually endless salt pans of Makgadikgadi you will eventually arrive at the famous grove of the massive Baines Baobabs. On the way and depending on seasonal rains you may be able to watch Africa's third largest migration of Blue Wildebeests and Zebras crossing the Boteti River.

Ultimately and amidst the mighty Kalahari you will reach the lush and animal rich Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world and best to be explored by a "Mokoro" (local dugout canoe) or with a scenic flight from the air.

We carry on North and enter the Nature Reserve of Moremi, will follow the Kwhai River and continue to Savuti marsh known for its large pride of Lions before we arrive at the banks of the mighty Chobe River. The entire region is home to the highest concentration of Elephants in Africa with more than 45.000 animals.

Another crowning highlight of this Safari will be the legendary Victoria Falls dividing Zimbabwe and Zambia. Here the fearless can experience the great Zambezi River on a white water rafting trip down the rapids.

Our turning point is reached and compass now swivels South again for Nata with its huge bird sanctuary and flamingo retreat on the edges of the salt pans. Our last station on this safari will be the Tuli Block Wilderness Area prominent for its high density of Leopards and a guided game drive at night will give you again a totally new experience on this journey.

On this Safari you visit the probably remotest and untouched Game Reserves in Africa. Large Lion prides, herds of Elephants and Buffalo, from close range and without fences, Hippos, Giraffes and many other species and a never seen before bird life. Float in a canoe through the river arms and reeds of a delta and listen to the sounds of Hyenas at night.

Many sections of this Safari are only accessible with a well prepared four-wheel drive vehicle and supply points are often a long way and days away from each other. You will experience nature, predators and big game never ever as close as on this expedition.
