Cape Town, Botswana and Victoria Falls safari

This romantic safari or honeymoon combines three highlights of Southern Africa – four days sightseeing in Cape Town, voted one of the top cities in the world. Here you stay at a luxurious five star resort hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Then you head to Botswana for 6 nights on safari in the Okavango Delta with both land and water-based game viewing at two luxury safari lodges. Finally you chill out on the banks of the Zambezi river for 2 nights at Victoria Falls. Spend your days lazing by the pool or sipping cocktails but, if the mood takes you, there is a huge range of adventure activities on offer nearby at Victoria Falls such as white water rafting, canoeing on the upper Zambezi, elephant back safaris and much more.

We have only arranged airport transfers in Cape Town. Leaving you free to decide whether you want to hire a rental car for a few days (very easy!). Or take a tour from a wide range on offer.

Note: this is a sample ‘honeymoon’ safari. So its easy to add in additional nights at Victoria Falls or anywhere else in the itinerary….

Day 5

4 nights Okavango Delta, Fully Inclusive

Today you are transferred back to Cape Town Airport to board your scheduled flight to Maun in Botswana, via Johannesburg (flight not included in this tour price but quoted separately).

On arrival, you take a short charter flight for the short 20 minute hop to the Okavango Delta.

The Okavango Delta, the jewel in the middle of the Kalahari Desert, is Africa’s largest and most beautiful oasis – an isolated, lush green paradise with some of the richest wildlife in the world. This exceedingly beautiful maze of waterways, lagoons, vast grassy plains and palm-fringed and wooded islands is home to crocodile, hippo, elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, giraffe, wild dog, rare antelope and around 400 bird species. But wildlife is just one of many elements that combine to make the delta a treasure house. It is the brooding quietness of the waterways, the plaintive cry of the fish eagle, the malachite kingfisher reflected in the waters and the scent of the water lilies, which will stay with you forever.

Okavango Delta safari

Nxabega Safari Lodge lies in a private Delta concession on the western border of the Moremi wildlife reserve. The lodge has been beautifully hand crafted and designed so that its open-plan dining room, lounge, wildlife reference library, and expansive sundecks all offer unobstructed views over the endless floodplains of the Delta. Beautiful details such as burnished teak floors, huge wooden bowls full of chillies and a solitaire game made from local vegetable ivory pods add a signature style to Nxabega.

You have a choice of daily activities including meandering along the floodplains and channels by mokoro – an experience not to be missed. Or you can track big game on foot or open 4×4-safari vehicle. The main lodge has a sitting and dining area and there’s a plunge pool for cooling off during the warm days.

You can also choose to upgrade these nights to the luxurious Xaranna Tented Camp for an additional supplement. Contact us for a quote.
