Below is an example of a Botswana Self Drive Safari.
All itineraries can be tailormade to suit the clients requirements, interests and budget
DAY 5,6 & 7 : CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Today you will drive north to the famous Chobe River and National Park. Chobe National Park, in northwest Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. By size, it is the third largest park of the country, after the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Kgalgadi National Park, and is the most diverse. It is also the country's first national park.This afternoon you can enjoy a sunset cruise on the Chobe River.An early start the following morning takes you on an organised Game Drive into Chobe National Park. The afternoon is free and at leisure. Optional extra game drives and boat cruises are available.
DAY 8 & 9 : VICTORIA FALLS (ZAMBIA OR ZIMBABWE)
Finally after your extensive game viewing journey it is a short drive to Victoria Falls. You can camp on the banks of the Zambezi River. Guided tours to the Falls are available but it is also very simple to visit by yourselves and the maps provided at the entrance provide all the information you will require. We highly recommend taking a sunset cruise on the Lady Livingstone as a perfect way to end your trip. (due to the sometimes difficulty in the Botswana/Zambia border crossing, it is possible to organise a scheduled transfer)There are many optional activities available in the area ranging from bungee jumping, elephant rides, sunset steam train trips, white water rafting and helicopter trips. All these can be booked in advance by your tour consultant.
DAY 10 : TOUR ENDS
Flights from Zambia depart from Livingstone Airport. Flights from Zimbabwe depart from Victoria Falls airport
