Overview

Our most popular combination tour will take you on a round trip from Johannesburg to the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls and Kruger National Park
The Delta, Chobe & Kruger combination tour starts and ends in Johannesburg. We make our way into the Kalahari. Here we will spend time getting to know the fascinating San people. We make our way to Maun, gateway to the Okavango Delta. We embark on our exploration of the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s great wilderness areas. There you will become an expert at “poling” your mokoro (a dugout canoe) through the waterways. Heading North we visit Chobe National Park for a game viewing boat cruise. We arrive in Victoria Falls where the available activities are limitless. Board the truck for your two day transit to Johannesburg and the start of your Kruger tour. Experience the thrill of being on safari, observing the big five as well as zebras, giraffe and rhinos and be inspired by an authentically African atmosphere. Our return journey to Johannesburg takes us via the scenic Panorama Route where we will visit God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels and Blyde River Canyon. Blyde River Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and it is a must see on everyone’s travel itinerary, and the viewpoints overlooking the Blyde River and Klein Drakensberg escarpment won’t disappoint.

After lunch we will join our San guides for a guided walk that will introduce us to the many secrets of their survival in the Kalahari Desert. The nomadic San are hunter-gatherers that have passed down a rich knowledge of the plants and animals that play such an important part in their lifestyle.

This morning we embark on our exploration of the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s great wilderness areas. This unique and unusual ecosystem sees the annual flood waters of the Okavango River fan out into the sands of the Kalahari Basin. The seasonality of the flood waters lends the Delta its ever changing character. While water levels may fluctuate the tranquillity of this wilderness area remains constant.
