Unforgettable 3 Country Fly-In Safari
From $ 5950.- per person sharing
Botswana is a wild country, an untouched country - and one of the politically most stable and safest countries in Africa. The incomparable tranquillity of a mokoro trip in the world heritage site of the Okavango Delta will inspire you just as much as the silent ride in a hot-air balloon over the plains in Zambia. Zambia – aah Zambia…. the name alone will make people swoon and become unashamedly ecstatic. Experience the unspoilt nature of Africa’s finest environment, go on game drive in the magnificent Kafue National Park and witness the huge herds of buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and elephants by yourself.
The Hwange National Park, located on the western border to Botswana, impresses with its unique scenic variety. Travelling on an adventurous path, you pass countless dams and water holes. Besides massive buffalo and elephant herds, one often comes across large herds of Sable and Roan antelopes, both species are rare and endangered in Africa.

Early arrival in Johannesburg and flight to Maun - Botswana.
Upon arrival in Maun, a Wilderness Air plane will take you to the Jao Camp. Jao Camp offers visitors the ultimate delta experience in the heart of the Okavango. The nine spacious and beautifully designed tents offer a private bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. Let the day end with a glass of wine or a gin & tonic in your hand on your private veranda.
Day 2 - 3
Depending on the time of the year, you can choose between game drives in open terrain vehicles or trips through the numerous canals and waterways of the delta in the dugout (Mokoro). Jao's position, close to lagoons and still in the middle of the Kalahari, means that you can enjoy both water and country experiences. Nestled among glorious African ebony trees overlooking lush waterways is the spa area, that invites you to relax while having a facial treatments and manicures or listen to the sounds of the African bush during a massage.
Day 4 - 5
From Jao a small aircraft brings you to the Savuti Camp. Savuti Camp is located in the private Linyanti concession on the Savuti canal, known as an unusual watercourse, which only sporadically leads water. For many years, the canals were dry before the water began to flow again in 2008. However, as part of a natural cycle, the canal is now dry again. The Linyanti region offers a variety of wild animals, but is mainly known for the large elephant population. Especially in the dry winter months the herds reach an enormous density. Animal species such as sable and roan, giraffes, lions, leopards, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, black-backed jackals and wild dogs are often encountered. You explore the area on game drives in open safari vehicles.
Day 6 - 8
Once again, a small plane will take you to Kasane. From there a minibus will bring you across the border to Zambia. At the airport in Livingstone, the next flight to Kafue awaits you. The Busanga Bush Camp lies in the heart of the Busanga Plains, a huge mosaic of expansive grassy savannah landscapes that stretch to the horizon. The luxurious tents are hidden on an island lined with fig trees. From the lounge area, the view glides over the seemingly endless plain. The Busanga Plains are known for their enormous lion prides. But cheetahs, wild dogs and leopards are often seen around the camp as well. During the dry season, zebras, buffalos and sable antelopes come together and form gigantic herds to avoid the predators. Enjoy the most exclusive balloon trips in the whole of Africa. Hover silently and sublime over the savannah and the huge herds, watch hippos playing far down and fly eye to eye with an eagle. A luscious champagne breakfast awaits you as soon as you get out of the hot-air balloon. You will stay 3 nights in Busanga Bush Camp.
Day 9 - 10
In the morning, you leave Kafue in a small aircraft and fly via Livingstone and Victoria Falls to the Davison's Camp in Hwange. The secluded Davison's Camp is located in the private Linkwasha concession, one of the most abundant natural areas in the Hwange National Park. The classic, African camp with its eight tents overlooking an open plain and a waterhole is well hidden in the shade of trees. Wild animals that are often found in this area include lions, large elephant herds, buffaloes, cheetahs, leopards, spotted hyenas, giraffes, sable antilopes, gnus, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck. In the summer, wildebeest, zebra and eland are found in abundance on the open plains, while elephants are gathering in enormous numbers around the waterholes. Hwange National Park was proclaimed about 80 years ago, and still offers its visitors one of the densest concentrations of wild animals in Africa. There is no better way to experience this park than to walk with an experienced, skilled safari guide taking you through the African bush.
Day 11 - 12
From Hwange, you fly to the Ruckomechi Camp located in Mana Pools Nationalpark in Kariba. The Ruckomechi Camp is based in a large private concession in the heart of the Mana Pool National Park on the banks of the mighty Zambesi River.
