Day by Day Overview

Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your Tour Leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Windhoek is the capital city of Namibia with loads of interesting things to offer. One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall. Here you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance in the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.

Depart Windhoek early for a long drive through the eastern part of Namibia, crossing the border into Botswana and travelling into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Ghanzi is the area where San (Bushmen) live who still have the knowledge of an ancient lifestyle and who are eager to welcome visitors into their almost forgotten world. In the evening, you can enjoy an optional ancient dance ritual performed around a campfire by the San and if the night is clear, enjoy the sparkling, starry skies for which Ghanzi is famous.

Enjoy an optional morning walk with the San (Bushmen) as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation to generation before departing Ghanzi. Arrive in Maun, Botswana’s fifth largest town, after lunchtime. Once you arrive in Maun you will have the option to get a spectacular birds-eye view of the Okavango Delta in a small fixed wing aircraft (weather permitting). Looking down on the Delta from the aircraft, you will get a fair idea of the magnitude of this massive mix of land and water with its intricate system of channels and islands. You might also see families of elephant, giraffe, and herds of buffalo or even hippos from the air. If you skip the flight, you will have the chance to kick back and relax at the lodge/campsite with bar and pool facilities.

To ensure the best Delta experience for our clients we have implemented two different styles or means of exploring this unique eco system. Due to the changing water levels in the Delta and dry seasons we will either explore the Delta on a Mokoro (canoe) or on a 4×4 open vehicle game drive.

Mokoro: Today you will experience a unique way of travelling into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro. The mokoro is used by local people as means of transport. You will be transferred to the ‘’polling’’ station either with a motorized boat or a 4×4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.

A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people.  The mokoro is steered by a ‘’poler” standing at the back, manoeuvring the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.

Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends on the time of year and water levels of the Delta. You will stop for lunch at an island and enjoy a nature walk of a few hours. Then you head back to Maun, again in your mokoro enjoying the last hour or two on the water while the late afternoon sun starts heading for the horizon.

The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May.

4X4 Open Vehicle Game Drive in Moremi Game Reserve: Departing from Maun early morning, we are destined for the Blackpools and Xini Lagoon areas in Moremi Game Reserve.

Once past the Buffalo Fence and inside the Delta area, 50km from Maun, we start our Delta experience. You can expect a full day of exploration in the search of wild animals, interesting and varied landscapes in this untamed African bush. Lunch will be done en-route and you will have the opportunity to take exquisite photos as Moremi is well known for teeming bird life, elephants, buffalo, hippo, lion and if you are lucky leopard (including various antelope species).

What makes Moremi unique is that it was the first tribal land to be proclaimed by a local African tribe in 1963 as a wildlife sanctuary.

During the dry season, a congregation of all bird and wildlife species, along permanent rivers and water holes makes Moremi Game Reserve one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences!

This experience will only be conducted if the water levels are too low for our travellers to have a proper Mokoro Delta experience. The Delta is usually at its lowest point from December to May.

Africa4us is deeply committed to protecting the environment and we make sure that our tours reflect this commitment. During the years of conducting tours in the Delta, we have experienced that the human footprint left behind has a negative effect on this extremely sensitive eco system therefore, we do not include an overnight experience in the Delta. We believe that our included Delta experience gives one the same adventure with less impact on the environment.

Set out for Elephant Sands, which is close to the Botswanan village of Nata. Elephant Sands is famous for its watering hole, voted as one of the top ten watering holes in Africa.

Cross into Zimbabwe and enjoy a short drive to the magnificent Victoria Falls and its charming little town. The Victoria Falls is not the widest or highest falls but is regarded as the world’s biggest. It produces a breath-taking curtain of falling water as it drops into the gorge below. See why it is considered among one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Today you will have time to do some of the action-filled activities that the area offers. Bungee jump or gorge swing off the Victoria Falls Bridge that links Zambia and Zimbabwe and have a different view of the Victoria Falls at the same time. This bridge is constructed to carry railway, road, and foot traffic. For an adrenaline-filled activity closer to the Zambezi River, choose a half day or full day white water rafting adventure.

Many of our groups opt to book their final evening together aboard a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River with game-viewing, beautiful scenery, and an open bar.

Victoria Falls is the “getting on” and “getting off” hub for people who have booked shorter “legs” of your combo trip. You might lose some of your travel companions and new people might join. You might also have a change of vehicle and adventure crew (Tour Leader and Driver.) Although it might sound a bit daunting, please be assured that your vehicle will be the same standard and your adventure crew are very experienced in dealing with these changes to make it as smooth as possible. All adventure crew is committed to giving the best possible service but because all have their own style, own special recipes, and own passion with regards to culture, fauna and flora, geology etc. having a change of crew will broaden your experience on the trip immensely.

Our last night is spent in Johannesburg – South Africa’s largest city – also known as Egoli or The City of Gold, referring to the gold mining history of this fast-paced city. Book a day or two post tour to make the most of your stay. A visit to Gold Reef City, the amusement park and museum built on an old mine shaft gives you the opportunity to experience a ride on the Shaft of Terror, a vertical-drop roller coaster known as the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Africa due to its sheer 47-metre drop. For the historically inclined there is the ever-popular Soweto tour or just jump on a Hop-On-Hop-Off bus to discover Johannesburg at your own pace.
