Day 1 – 2: Kruger National Park

Departing Johannesburg at 06:30am we head into the world famous Kruger National Park. We visit the northern part of the park and stay in the Letaba area of the reserve. We enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in our safari vehicle and hope to spot lion, elephant, rhino and other animals in this icon of wildlife conservation.

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (1 breakfast/ 2 lunch/ 2 dinner), entrance to Kruger National Park and morning & afternoon game drives

Day 3: Great Zimbabwe

Entering Zimbabwe at the Beit Bridge border post, we travel to the town of Masvingo and the Great Zimbabwe Monuments. The well preserved ruins are some of the oldest and largest stone structures in Southern Africa and were built during the 11th to 14th Centuries. We explore on foot and wonder at the mysteries of these ancient stone structures and the civilization that built them.

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (1 breakfast/ 1 lunch/ 1 dinner), entrance and guided tour of the Zimbabwe Ruins

Day 4 – 5: Matobo National Park

Moving on to Bulawayo, we arrive in the late afternoon and set up our camp on the outskirts of the park, before enjoying a sundowner and an evening around the campfire.
The following morning we head into the Matobos National Park with a local guide to visit the core of the Matopos Hills, an area of granite koppies and wooded valleys. On our open vehicle game drive we visit World’s View and the historical site of Cecil John Rhodes’ grave and discover the unusual rock formations characteristic of this area. As part of our visit we take a guided walk to track and hopefully find endangered white rhino, as well as other wildlife, and view bushman rock paintings.

Day 6 – 7: Hwange National Park

Named after a local Nhanzwa chief, Hwange National Park is the largest Park in Zimbabwe occupying roughly 14 650 square kilometers and is located in the north-west corner of the country. It is famed for its large elephant population. Our camp is in the game management area that borders the park, and we explore the park with our local guide, on a full day game drive in an open 4WD game viewing vehicle

Includes: Meals (2 breakfast /2 lunch /2 dinner), entrance fees, full day game drive in open 4WD game viewing vehicle

Day 8 – 9 : Victoria Falls

We camp for 2 nights in the town of Victoria Falls. We enjoy a spectacular walk through tropical vegetation to the very edge of the “Mosi oa Tunya” or “the smoke that thunders” – Victoria Falls. There are opportunities to white water raft on the mighty Zambezi River, bungi jump or take a “flight of angels” (own expense).

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (2 breakfast), entrance fees to see the Victoria Falls

Day 10: Chobe National Park

Entering Botswana, our camp is situated in the town of Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River. The 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 “sundowner” cruise where we hope to see a large number of elephants and other wildlife as they quench their thirst at the end of the day.

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (breakfast / lunch / dinner), Chobe N.P entrance fees & sunset cruise on Chobe River

Day 11: Gweta

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (breakfast / lunch / dinner)

Day 12 – 14: Okavango Delta

After an early start we depart for Maun where we will then 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 mekoro (dugout canoes). Being gently poled through the network of channels is an experience not to be missed. 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. We will camp wild on remote islands in this amazingly dynamic environment and enjoy bush walks, bird watching & swimming in the clear waters. Camping with our local guides we learn more about their lifestyle and culture. We return to Maun in the late afternoon of day 14 and have time for an optional (own expense) game flight over the Okavango, which will reveal a different aspect of the delta.

Accommodation at: Wild Camping – basic ablution facilities (2 nights) and Camping – good ablution facilities (1 nights)
Includes: Meals (3 breakfast / 3 lunch / 2 dinner), entrance to Okavango Delta, Mokoro excursion, morning and afternoon game walks with local guides

Day 15: Khama Rhino Sanctuary

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

Accommodation at: Camping – good ablution facilities
Includes: Meals (1 breakfast / 1 lunch/ 1 dinner) entrance fees and afternoon game drive.

Crossing back into South Africa, we make our way to Johannesburg where the tour ends in the late afternoon.

Please note that although Sunway has all the correct paperwork the Beitbridge border crossing into Zimbabwe can take a long time, which can make for a particularly long day.
