This 11 day adventure sees you traverse the African quadripoint as you collect incredible wildlife & adventure experiences in each of these 4 epic African countries
Where Namibia, Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe come together is the only international quadripoint in existence. This 11 day adventure sees you traverse the African quadripoint as you collect incredible wildlife and adventure experiences in each of these 4 countries. Ticking off the Caprivi Strip, Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls (Zambia and Zimbabwe) in one trip is sure to provide you with more experiences than what should be possible in just over a week in Africa. From floating down the Zambezi River on a sunset boat cruise, dinner on a sand bar, to drifting past hippos in dugout mokoro canoes in the Delta and swimming below the Victoria Falls – you’d struggle to find a more action-packed experience.
Your friendly driver will greet you at the arrivals of Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone, Zambia. You’ll then head 14.6 miles towards the award-winning Tongabezi Lodge and taken to your own private chalets on the Sindabezi Island. A myriad of unique activities and experiences are available over the next two days around the iconic Victoria Falls. From the blood pumping to the scenic, no matter your preference there is an excursion to suit your speed. As long as you don’t mind getting soaked, exploring the trails around the falls by foot is a great way to understand the local geology. If you’re lucky enough to have your visit land on a full moon, you can venture into the park at midnight to find an astonishing lunar rainbow cast in the spray
Transfer after breakfast across the border to Zimbabwe. Traversing the Zambia-Zimbabwe border provides an opportunity to cross the famous bridge with a fantastic view over the Victoria Falls. Arrive at your next luxurious accommodation, the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel. This prestigious 5-star hotel is Zimbabwe’s grandest and oldest luxury hotel. Check into your classic guest room with views of the expansive gardens. On day four you will enjoy a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi River. Spend 2 hours floating upstream witnessing pods of hippos in the water and elephants on the river banks.
The opulent Edwardian hotel was built in 1904 and overlooks the Batoka Gorge. Centrally located with the Victoria Falls just 10-minutes walk. Hear and see the spray of the Falls from the wide verandahs of the hotel, while you sit and sip on a cold beverage. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World.
Walk into the quaint town and try out a local dish at one of the restaurants. We recommend the popular eatery situated on the old station platform. A good selection of dining options at the hotel is on offer with internationally trained chefs. Not to be missed is a lunch at the Lookout Cafe.
Today, you will be transferred to Victoria Falls International Airport for your scheduled 20 minute light aircraft flight to Kasane International Airport, Botswana. On touch down, a lodge representative will meet you and accompany you through Namibia immigration across the Chobe River. Let’s leave the conventional behind. We’re reinventing the safari and taking to the water. Much like its well-regarded cousin to the south, the Okavango Delta, the Caprivi strip strikes an alluring balance between road and river safari styles. This wetland lodge is located where two rivers meet and is at very tip of Namibia. In the middle of the Chobe River during this boat transfer, is the exact place where the African quadripoint is located.
This boutique lodge is located in the Kasika Conservancy of the Zambezi region in Namibia. Spacious open plan luxury villas lead out private wooden decks with sunbathing areas with unrestricted views over the Chobe River. Enjoy relaxing in the library, lounge or sitting on the river’s edge.
The elephants know all of the top spots. That’s why today we’re following them to one of their favorites: Moremi Game Reserve. Moremi sits in the heart of the Okavango Delta and covers 3,900 square kilometers of floodplains, swamps, and mopane forest. Not only is Moremi Game Reserve one of the most biologically diverse areas on the continent, it was also the first game reserve to be established by local residents. Visitors to the park bolster Botswana’s legacy by contributing to Botswana’s commitment to environmental protection. Without exception, Chief’s Island is one such place where tourism and conservation intertwine. The largest dry island in Moremi, Chief’s rises out of the floodplains acting as a dry retreat for animals escaping the flooded swamp. The pure density of wildlife, not to mention the incredible scenery, allows for one of the most exceptional game viewing opportunities in Africa. Not surprisingly, Chief’s Island also houses some of Africa’s most exclusive lodges. Sanctuary Chief’s Camp is your home for the next two days; your launchpad and entry point into this vast ecosystem. The camp does not compromise elegance for effectiveness and is widely recognized for its influential rhino conservation project.
If the Okavango Delta is an outdoorsman’s paradise, Moremi Game Reserve is his muse. Today is dedicated to exploring the intricate, twisting loops and overgrown trails of Chief’s Island. Start by game vehicle, traversing bumpy roads and secluded nooks in search of antelope and predators hidden in the thicket. But to truly experience the delta, there is one mode of transportation that trumps the rest: navigating the narrow pathways of the floodplains by mokoro. Mokoro paths trace routes carved by elephants and hippos wading through the tall grass. At water-level you can truly immerse into the delta’s environment. Guests can also dig deeper into Chief’s Camp’s efforts to protect critically endangered rhinos in Botswana. The camp’s intensive rhino relocation project has been successful in increasing rhino numbers.
Today, you will bid the great Okavango Delta farewell. After a full trip of memories, you will have time to enjoy a final breakfast in this idyllic location before packing up and heading on a light aircraft flight to Maun. From Maun International airport fly to your destination of choice.
