Wings Over Botswana - A&K

Fly deep into the wilderness of Botswana's remote Okavango Delta, a hidden oasis in an otherwise water-starved land. Travel by light aircraft to this area that is teeming with wildlife. View huge herds of elephant in Chobe National Park, take a sunset cruise down the Zambezi River and observe the thundering waters of the famous Victoria Falls in Zambia.

During your stay, you may interact with a group of semi-habituated African elephant and have a shaded picnic overlooking a lagoon, with the elephant nearby.

Day 5: Okavango Delta

Chief Âs Camp Fly to Chief Âs Camp, which is set deep in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve.

Day 6: Okavango Delta

Chief Âs Camp Game drives are an opportunity to spot leopard, cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena and a large resident pride of lion. Your specially designed safari vehicle is customized to offer exceptional views. This area is renowned for its large concentration of elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, giraffe, impala and of course, predators. Add to that the 400 species of bird life and you have the best gaming experience that Botswana can offer. Both white and black rhino  the latter among AfricaÂs fastest-disappearing species  can be seen here.

Day 7: Okavango Delta/Chobe National Park

Chobe Chilwero After breakfast, fly northeast to Chobe National Park, covering diverse landscapes ranging from teak forests to floodplains and marshlands.

The lounge and dining room connect to spectacular outdoor viewing patios, and a range of spa treatments offer the perfect ending to a full day out in the bush.

Day 8: Chobe National Park

Chobe Chilwero Begin your day shortly after sunrise with a game drive that offers an opportunity to spot animals searching for breakfast. This afternoon, embark on a river cruise by a motorboat customized for a water safari.

Day 9: Chobe/Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Livingstone, Zambia

Sussi & Chuma Bid farewell to your lodge. Drive across the Zimbabwe border to visit awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, its roar yielding up to 120 million gallons of water per minute.

Continue to your accommodations at Sussi & Chuma in Zambia, where you stay in a luxury tree house, built into the living canopy that lines the bank. An on-site spa provides revitalizing treatments, while an elevated lounge offers a place to unwind. As twilight sets in, take a sunset cruise, savoring AfricaÂs beauty while sipping traditional cocktails.

Day 10: Livingstone

Sussi & Chuma This morning embark on a guided walking tour of one of the great natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls. At times, the water flow can be up to 120 million gallons per minute and the roar of the falling water can be nearly as awe-inspiring as the view. The rainforest that veils the edge of the falls, the rising spray and the thundering roar of the water pounding against the ragged rocks all make for an unforgettable experience.
