Your adventure starts with a scheduled Flight from OR Tambo (formerly Johannesburg) Airport to Livingstone Airport, where you will be met and transferred to Chundukwa River Lodge, some 25 kilometres from the Victoria Falls, in the peace and seclusion of the Zambian side of the Zambezi River.
The Lodge accommodates just 10 guests, and overlooks the Zambezi River.

During your two night stay you will have the opportunity to explore the Falls. The more adventurous can participate in white water rafting, bungi jumping or even surfing the rapids. The world famous ‘Flight of the Angels’ is well worth doing.

After two nights at Chundukwa tree Lodge, you transfer to Kasane, in Botswana (approx. 90 minute drive), for Garden Lodge, which overlooks the Chobe River, and is adjacent to Chobe National Park. You can enjoy daily game drives into the Park (famous for its elephant population), and river cruises.

From here you take an 80 minute light aircraft flight deep into the Okavango Delta, and land at the private airstrip for Oddball’s Enclave, where you will meet the Guide who will be looking after you during your stay.

Oddball’s offers a setting which seems to offer an endless panorama not only of the Delta’s primeval landscape, but of the dawn of time itself. Overlooking the Boro, one of the main waterways of the Okavango, Oddball’s Enclave has just six meru-style tents with en-suite facilities – the enclave has its own Host and Cook to provide a truly personalised experience.

Your safaris from Oddballs Enclave will be the most interesting during your holiday. You explore the intricate and stunningly beautiful waterways of the Okavango Delta by mokoro, a dug out canoe poled by your personal Guide. This is a truly magical experience, allowing you to view the abundant bird-life at very close range. Floating through beds of water-lilies, watching antelope, zebra, giraffe and perhaps the occasional cheetah, your memories of Oddballs Enclave will remain with you for ever.

Walking Safaris are also featured at Oddballs Enclave. Even the most satiated safari-goers will tell you that tracking and viewing wildlife on foot is ‘the only way to go!’ Accompanied by your personal Guide, you will, in all safety and security, become part of the African landscape.

Following your three night stay at Oddballs Enclave, you take a light aircraft to Maun, to transfer by Air Botswana to Johannesburg, where you will transfer to the Metcourt Laurel Hotel just 5 minutes from the Airport for a brief overnight stay prior to taking your flight to Vilanculos, Mozambique. From here there is a light aircraft transfer to the Falcon.

The Falcon of Bazaruto is undoubtedly a beautiful and unexplored destination, characterised by its wildlife, turquoise waters and idyllic beaches, all carefully protected as a Natural Reserve.

Bazaruto Lodge is situated in a bay on the north side of the Falcon. This setting offers a unique combination of beauty, safety and relaxed informality that make it the ideal spot for nature lovers as well as those who want to practice diving and other water sports.

Accommodation consists of 26 thatched roof “A” frame Bungalows sited amongst luxuriant tropical gardens and overlooking the Ocean. Each Bungalow offers twin or Queen double beds, private bathroom and outside shower, air-conditioning and fan, tea and coffee making facilities and mosquito nets over all the beds.

Here you can relax, take in the sun or partake in the numerous activities available. Deep sea fishing, diving, snorkelling and salt-water fly fishing are available direct from the Lodge.

Your 6 night stay at Bazaruto Lodge will leave you both relaxed and exhilarated. You will return to Johannesburg Airport
