This trip begins at the spectacular Victoria Falls, before continuing to two wildlife-rich safari areas – the Linyanti and the Okavango Delta! We use a thrilling mix of luxury camps offering both land- and water-based activities.

Your journey begins at Tongabezi, a lavish hideaway located 20 kilometres upstream from Vic Falls, on the mighty Zambezi river. After a couple of nights here, you’ll travel to the Linyanti Reserve, specifically to Savuti Camp. This is a classic safari camp on the banks of the Savuti Channel and within a private concession. Next up, you’ll stay three nights at Little Vumbura Camp, a YZ favourite that’s situated on a private island within the Vumbura Concession in the Okavango Delta. The final property of the trip is another island camp, this time Chitabe, which is found within a private concession in the Delta’s south-eastern region.

During your time at Tongabezi, you’ll enjoy both on-site activities, such as relaxing in the camp’s bar, spa, and pool, and all the fun of the Falls – guided tours, cruises, watersports, and more! You could even get your safari started early, with an expertly guided game drive in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Once you’ve arrived at Savuti Camp, the wildlife appreciation begins in earnest, via vehicle and walking safaris, boat trips, and star-bed sleep-outs. Little Vumbura also offers guided game drives and walks, in addition to mokoro excursions, hot air ballooning, and even helicopter rides! And things to do at Chitabe consist of day and night vehicle safaris, guided walks, and helicopter trips.
