Overview

Experience endless adventure in Victoria Falls, sundowners on the Chobe River, Okavango Delta mokoro trips and tribal San dancing before arriving in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.
The Delta & Chobe Trail Adventure Tour starts in Victoria Falls, also known by the local name of “Mosi-oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders), where you will discover an array of adventures. We travel to Chobe National Park where we join a game drive and watch the African sunset from the comfort of a river cruiser, expect a close encounter with hippo and elephants. The Chobe National Park can be divided up into four sections, making it a true rarity and an explorer’s paradise. We enter one of the world’s most unique wilderness areas, the Okavango Delta in Botswana where we follow the hippo trails in dugout canoes (mokoros) and take nature walks to discover the islands. Exploring the Okavango Delta is a must for any tourist visiting Botswana. While the programme of activities is flexible to accommodate the seasonal changes, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an endless list of activities. We make our way to Ghanzi where you’ll be entertained with local tribal dancing from the San Community before ending your tour in the capital and largest city of Namibia, Windhoek. All you have to do is book this tour and join us on an adventure of a lifetime!
