Itinerary in detail

1

Arrival in Chobe National Park

Take off in a small plane from Maun today to reach Chobe National Park, home of Africa’s largest elephant population. Get a birds-eye view of its sprawling grasslands and wildlife before touching down at your home for the next two nights: Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge. Head out on an afternoon game drive, take a dip in the pool or wildlife-watch from the hide – the Savute area is famous for its prides of lion, which can often be spotted from the lodge. Overnight at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge.

Things to do:

2

Chobe National Park

Venture into the park on a game drive this morning and keep your eyes peeled for lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas and giraffes, as well as the real stars: the elephants. Embark on another game drive in the afternoon or visit the San Bushmen paintings, thought to be more than 1,500 years old. Alternatively, grab the binoculars for some birdwatching – more than 250 species reside here from December to March. In the evening, enjoy an out-of-this-world dining experience featuring signature African dishes paired with fine wines. Overnight at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge.

Chobe National Park & Moremi Game Reserve

Take to the skies from the camp’s airstrip this morning as you make a beeline for the Moremi Game Reserve, set within one of the world’s greatest wildlife destinations – the Unesco-listed Okavango Delta. The Moremi area is known for its diverse landscapes and wildlife, with deep waterways and floodplains meeting open savannah and Mopane forests. Settle in at Belmond Khwai River Lodge, located on its own private concession just across from the reserve. Relax at the spa, unwind by the pool or head out on a night drive to see its nocturnal creatures come to life beneath the stars. Overnight at Belmond Khwai River Lodge.

Things to do:

Moremi Game Reserve

Venture out on a game drive this morning or head off on a guided walking safari along the river for close encounters on foot. The reserve is home to several rare species, including the endangered wild dog, the swamp-dwelling sitatunga antelope and the red-coated lechwe. If you’re feeling adventurous, soar above the clouds on an optional helicopter flight with a difference – there are no doors, so you can capture these lush, wildlife-filled scenes without obstruction. Overnight at Belmond Khwai River Lodge.

Things to do:

5

Moremi Game Reserve & Okavango Delta

Fly to another part of the delta today, taking in its glittering network of lagoons, channels, and islands from above. Your destination is Belmond Eagle Island lodge, set on its own private island with just 12 tented rooms – each with their own plunge pool. Head out on a mokoro trip in a traditional dugout canoe, venture off on a motorboat cruise or see the river bathed in red on a sunset barge trip. Guided walking safaris and fishing excursions are also available, and the lodge is another hotspot for birdwatching. Overnight at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge.

Things to do:

6

Okavango Delta

Continue the water adventures today or take it up a notch with a horseback and heli safari that will have you flying over the delta before saddling up for a horse ride. Expect to see wild dogs, elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos as you plod your way through the delta. Alternatively join an excursion to the nearby village of Nxhoga. Here you’ll get to meet some of the elders, chat with the children and browse the market while learning about local trades including basket-weaving, hut-building and fishing. Overnight at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge.

Things to do:

7

Okavango Delta & Cape Town

Wave goodbye to Botswana this morning as you fly to Maun for your next adventure: Cape Town. On arrival, transfer to Mount Nelson Cape Town, one of Belmond’s most famous properties, set in the shadows of Table Mountain. Unwind by the pool, visit the spa or head into the city. Overnight at Belmond Mount Nelson Cape Town.

Things to do:

8

Cape Town

Spend the next few days exploring the best of this captivating city – a melting pot of cultures where world-class restaurants and wineries meet galleries, beaches and a slew of historic sights. Choose from a wealth of local optional experiences, like the My Cape Town City Tour or don retro leather jackets, goggles, bandanas, and helmets to whizz along the Cape Peninsula in a 1950’s sidecar. Overnight at Belmond Mount Nelson Cape Town.

Things to do:

9

Cape Town

Explore the city at leisure today or choose from one of several optional excursions, including the My Cape Peninsula Tour.

Kayaking with penguins at Boulders beach or a fish and chips lunch at Houtbay’s Seal Island are further options on this tour. Overnight at Belmond Mount Nelson Cape Town.

Things to do:

10

Cape Town

It’s the penultimate day of your tour today, so head back into the city, relax at the hotel or take an optional excursion into the Cape Winelands. An optional private helicopter tour, with a 5-star gourmet lunch in the country’s oldest wine region, is an experience to remember. Leaving Cape Town, you’ll enjoy spectacular aerial views of Table Mountain before cruising across the stunning winelands. Then choose to dine at either the Waterford Wine Estate in Stellenbosch or Mont Rochelle in Franschhoek – both highly recommended. Overnight at Belmond Mount Nelson Cape Town.

Alfred & Daniel Heatly

Upon leaving university, Daniel blindly placed a pin into a map (we kid you not!) to select South Africa as the first destination he ever travelled to. This was the beginning of a 23 year love affair with African travel. Subsequent adventures have taken him to Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, meeting new people and discovering new experiences along the way.
