- Some of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa are found in the Savute (sometimes spelled Savuti) area.
- Situated in the famous Chobe National Park on the border of the Okavango Delta, Savute is best known for its channel, which mysteriously fills up and dries up periodically, seemingly unrelated to the rainfall.
- Savute supports the greatest concentration of the king of all beasts – the lion.
- The landscape of Savute is strikingly different from the lush Chobe riverfront, with an almost desert-like feeling.
- Spend two nights at Savute Under Canvas.
- Adventures include twice-daily game drives in semi-open 4x4 vehicles with guaranteed window seat.
- includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers (excluding premium brands), teas and coffees.

Days 5 to 6: Selinda
- After breakfast, you will be transferred by light aircraft to Selinda Airstrip.
- The Selinda Reserve is a 320 000 acre (129 500 hectare) private wildlife sanctuary in northern Botswana.
- The famous Selinda Spillway, which links the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando wetlands and rivers, meanders through the area.
- Abundant wildlife is attracted to the vast floodplains and grasslands along the river, with large numbers of elephant and vast herds of buffalo congregating around the Zibadianja Lagoon in the dry winters.
- Predator viewing is also exceptional, including lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.
- Adventures include walking safari and canoeing.
- Game drives are offered, but game drives are a supplement to other activities (walking and canoeing) as opposed to the emphasis.
- Your stay includes three meals daily, alcoholic and no-alcoholic beverages (excluding imported and premium drinks).
- Accommodation is in selous style tent with a private open-air en suite 'bustani' bathroom including a flush toilet, double basins and hot and cold water bucket shower.

- Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees.

Days 9 to 10: Victoria Falls
- After breakfast you will be driven to Victoria Falls River Lodge, clearing customs and immigration en-route.
- A World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles and the stuff of legends, romance and myth.
- Long before the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone 'discovered' the Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, 'the smoke that thunders'.
- Livingstone named them for his queen.
- Today, the village rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting.
- Victoria Falls River Lodge boasts panoramic African sunsets with seven spacious luxury tents are set right on banks of the mighty Zambezi.
- Two game activities per person per day (a choice of either a morning / afternoon game drive in the Zambezi National Park, or a sunrise / sunset river cruise); snacks and drinks will be included on the game drive or river cruise.
- Your stay at Victoria Falls River Lodge includes meals, local beverages and high tea.
