This is our most luxurious trip for a solo explorer – and it’s also great value! Travelling from Victoria Falls to Chobe to Savute to the Okavango Delta, you will stay at sumptuous properties that do not charge a high single supplement. There may be a higher level of luxury available from lodges owned by Wilderness Safaris, Great Plains, and &Beyond, but these come with a higher price tag to match! All our properties are super-comfortable and provide access to exceptionally good game-viewing areas.

You will begin at Waterberry Lodge, a property on the Zambia side of Victoria Falls. Waterberry has a beautiful riverside location and a very friendly atmosphere! Next, you will stay at Chobe Game Lodge, which offers excellent accommodation within a wildlife-rich region. Savute Safari Lodge is your next stop – this comfy property provides great game viewing as well as visits to the local San rock paintings! And finally, you will travel to Camp Okavango, a water-based camp situated on a remote island.

On the first day of your trip, you will fly out to Livingstone and transfer by road to Waterberry Lodge. This friendly property is situated on the Zambia side of the River Zambezi and boasts amazing views of the river from its communal spaces. You can look out for animals not only in the water, but also on the opposite bank, within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park! The Lodge also has a viewing deck, as well as a fire-pit and a swimming pool. Guest accommodation consists of just seven cottages, dotted around Waterberry’s grounds. Each is constructed from brick and thatch, and features a lovely veranda. The comfortable interiors include air conditioning, mosquito nets, and elegant furnishings. Activities at Waterberry comprise ‘in house’ and ‘external’ options. If you stay close to the Lodge, you can enjoy river cruises, birding, fishing, and village visits. Head out to Victoria Falls, and an impressive selection of wet-and-wild watersports becomes available, as well as animal encounters in the national park and scenic flights in a helicopter or a microlight!

On Day 3, you will transfer by road to Chobe Game Lodge, in the north-eastern corner of Chobe National Park.

You will stay in a Standard River-view Room, with the possibility of upgrading to a River-view Suite if you wish. Both options are comfortable and tastefully furnished, with a private deck. Activities on offer include game drives and river cruises. Chobe contains the biggest elephant population in Africa, so sightings of the grey guys are common here!

On a lower level, you will find two fire-pits and an additional deck featuring a rim-flow swimming pool! Your accommodation will be one of 11 safari suites. These suites certainly have the wow factor, each with a luxurious bedroom that flows out through sliding doors onto a private deck with spectacular views!

A stay here provides a nice relaxing end to your trip!
