Itinerary

Day 1Victoria Falls

Arrive at any time.

Tonight, head out with your CEO and group to further explore together in Victoria Falls. Sip a drink at Shearwater Village after your welcome meeting. Sit back, relax, enjoy the rushing sound of the falls, down a beer, and get to know your fellow travel mates as the adventure begins.

Exclusive Inclusions:

Your Welcome Moment Meet Your CEO and Group| Your First Night Out Moment Connect With New Friends

Day 2Victoria Falls

Get close and personal with one of the largest waterfalls in the world on this free day in Victoria Falls. Feel the strength of the water splashing your skin on the observation deck as you take in the sound of tons of water thundering over the edge of the falls in the distance and make your day as relaxing or hair-raising as you like.

For the adventurous we recommend going whitewater rafting, taking a scenic helicopter flight over the falls (epic selfies anyone?), or taking the plunge (literally) while bungee jumping with Victoria Falls in sight. (Oh man... just thinking of that makes our heads spin and our palms sweat!) Not looking to turn your hair gray today? Either way the choice is yours, but remember you’re here now so why not escape those comfort zones?

Day 3Victoria Falls/Kasane

Buckle those seat belts and as the mist from the falls leaves the air cross the border from Zimbabwe into Botswana. Waste no time and choose to take a wildlife viewing boat cruise along the fertile lands of the Chobe River, or choose to hop on a wildlife safari drive in an open safari vehicle in Chobe National Park (it’s your best bet to see hippos, crocodiles, and elephants wallowing in the water). Then relax and unwind at camp with your group, telling stories, singing songs, and just enjoying one another's company in this serene country.

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch

Day 4Kasane/Gweta

Rise early to the sounds of nature around you and travel south with your group to Gweta.

“I bless the rains down in Africaaaaa” ahh we can just hear it now... (and it has never sounded so good!) because surely someone is bound to play this song as you drive through the verdant lands between Kasane and Gweta. Turns out Toto knew what they were talking about because the rains in Africa are no joke. Rain brings life to the pans awakening the dormant fish and aquatic shrimps from the mud. The surrounding grasslands also teem with life and are home to many antelope, which attract a wide variety of predators. Keep your eyes focused as the world passes you by and then reward yourself with a group toast as you camp under the stars shining through the branches of ancient baobab trees.

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 5Gweta/Maun

Wake up to the image of the sun rising behind huge baobab trees and watch as the light turns the landscape varying shades of pinks, oranges, and reds. You can’t help but feel completely isolated from the rest of the world in the middle of nowhere... savour that moment. Then it’s time to hit the road to Maun where the adventures continue! Set up camp, unwind with your friends or opt to take to the air and book a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta for a bird’s-eye view of the fertile lands at your feet. Search for wildlife as you soar through the sky and feel the rush of excitement in your veins.

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch

Day 6Maun/Okavango Delta

Today is going to be busy, but fun! Travel to the Delta then dive right into some nature with a wildlife walk. The cool thing about being on foot is that you will get to learn about tracking the animals and gain insight into their movement patterns and behaviour more than if you were just in a vehicle.

Explore the Okavango delta in a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) to do some birdwatching on the way to our basic bush camp for the evening. Set up camp, and simply unwind with a sundowner around the campfire. Cheers!

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 7Maun/D'kar

Kiss the shores of the Okavango Delta goodbye and hop into a mokoro with your friends on the way back to Maun. Search for wildlife in the reeds along the river as you make your way back towards civilization. Zoom through the western part of Botswana to D’kar; the heart of the Kalahari. Catch a glimpse of how the local San Bushmen adapted to the Kalahari Desert on an optional bushman walk. They will teach you about wilderness survival skills in a place that seems uninhabitable.

Then as the day comes to an end enjoy the warm hospitality of the San Bushmen as the group will be staying at the G Adventures-supported Dqae Qare San Lodge & Camp. The best part? You are making a difference in the lives of these people just by enjoying your time at this camp. So sit back allow yourself to become immersed in their history and culture with dance and storytelling around a campfire (can you say best camping spot yet?) as the stars light up the sky above.

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 8D'kar/Windhoek

Stretch those legs, wave farewell to the San Bushmen, and hop in the Lando headed for Windhoek. Laugh, reflect, and listen to each other's stories as you cross the border into Namibia. Check another country off those travel lists and choose to grab one last meal with your travel fam before heading home.

Not ready to leave Africa just yet? (Yeah, we don’t blame you) talk with your CEO about extending your adventure and get to know Namibia or beyond!

Meals included:

Breakfast | Lunch

Victoria Falls Whitewater Rafting - From $1009.00
