Days 1-2: Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is a town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, with spectacular views and a reputation as the adventure capital of Zimbabwe. Get soaked by the powerful sheet of spray rising from the thunderous Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, or choose to partake in some wild adventure activities or simply take in the falls from all angles.

Accommodation: Camping (1 night, with facilities)

Day 2: Chobe National Park

Travel to Botswana and embark on an afternoon cruise along the Chobe River. Try to spot wallowing hippos and basking crocodiles before watching the sun melt into the horizon over the grassy plains. There's plenty of time in the Chobe National Park to spot the magnificent elephants this reserve is famous for. With a diverse range of ecosystems, a humungous number of elephants and the largest concentration of game found in Africa, Chobe National Park is safari heaven.

Accommodation: Camping (1 night, with facilities)

Day 3: Maun

After an optional early morning game drive, make the journey to Maun. It is a small town in Botswana that's the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Despite its touristy veneer, it still retains its rural feel.

Accommodation: Camping (1 night, with facilities)

Day 4-6: Okavango Delta / Maun

Full of animals, islands and unforgettable scenery, the Okavango Delta is the world's largest inland delta and is best explored by mokoro (dugout canoe). With donkeys competing with cars on the streets and cattle sellers operating alongside Delta tour operators, Maun has more on offer than the spectacular Okavango Delta. Spend the night camping on a remote island surrounding by the sounds of nocturnal life.

Accommodation: Bush Camp (2 nights, no facilities), Camping (1 night, with facilities)

Day 7: Khama Rhino Sanctuary

Dedicated to saving the endangered black and white rhino population and helping improve the area's animal numbers, Khamo Rhino Sanctuary's young yet beautiful park is flourishing with wildlife. The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is not only a great way to see a huge number of animals up close on a game drive, it is an inspiring place that also helps the local community.

Accommodation: Camping (1 night, with facilities)

Days 8-9: Soweto / Johannesburg

Return to South Africa and jump on a bike to explore Soweto, an infamous Johannesburg neighborhood that is the heart of this city, and learn about its tumultuous history. It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums. Spend time in the museums, restaurants and parks of this vibrant city before bidding farewell to this incredible southern African adventure!
