Besides visiting the famous Victoria Falls the following activities can be arranged on own expense: Boats Cruise, Scenic Flight (Microlight, Helicopter or Plane), Wild Water Rafting or Bungee Jumping.
Days 3-4 – Nxai Pans
We cross the Zambezi into Botswana early in the morning on the Kazungula Ferry to get a head start for the 6-7 hours drive to Nxai Pans. After setting up the camp we go on an evening game drive to enjoy the sunset in the amazing landscape of the dry grass pans. Possible sightings in the area may include: Wildebeest, Zebra, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and a large variety of birds. On the second day we go for more game drives in the area and visit Bane's Baobab at the edge of Kudiakam Pan. The evenings in the camp are spent by candlelight under the endless clear night sky.
Days 5-7 – Okavango Delta
A scenic flight takes us from Maun airport straight to Ntswe Island , deep in the Okavango Delta. After arrival we are greeted by the friendly team of Gunn's Bush Camp and settle into the 2-men-dome tents set on their own platform overlooking one of the Okavango channels. The camp offers Mokoro-Trips (traditionally dug out canoes) and game walks. The second night is spent camping on our “own island” deep in the untouched wilderness of the delta, accompanied by skilled poler guides. Here we experience nature in its purest form, gliding along the Okavango channels in a mokoro or exploring the little islands by foot. Possible wildlife sightings may include: Hippo, Crocodile, Elephant, Buffalo , Zebra, Giraffe, Lion and a variety of Bucks. In the morning of the third day we return to Gunn's Bush Camp and spend the afternoon at leisure.
