Day 1 UK/Johannesburg

Fairlawns Hotel & Spa


Day 3 Johannesburg/Okavango Delta
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to Maun where you will take a light aircraft transfer to Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp. Set among ebony and sausage trees, Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is located on a 260,000 acre private concession in the renowned Okavango Delta.  The natural wonders of the area constantly change over the seasons from lush green when the rain flows down the Angolan highlands, to dry savannah when the neighboring Kalahari Desert tightens its grip on the terrain.

Day 4- Okavango Delta
There is nowhere like the Okavango Delta. This vast web of waterways is fuelled by annual floods that slip across the Kalahari like a many-fingered hand, bringing life to the arid earth. Fly in, to stay at Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp, a clutch of just eight colonial-feel safari tents dotted amid ebony and sausage trees. Take game drives, watching out for buffalo, elephant, giraffe and lion; be punted through papyrus-draped channels in a traditional mokoro canoe.

Day 5 – Okavango Delta / Chobe Chilwero
Time permitting, there may be chance to enjoy an  eraly morning game drive before transferring to the airstrip for a light aircraft flight to Kasane.  Flying times is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. You’ll  arrive in the land of the elephants. Chobe National Park is home to perhaps Africa’s greatest concentration of the charismatic creatures, and the Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero Lodge, nestled on an escarpment gazing over the Chobe River, is an elegant base.

Day 6 Chobe National Park
Wake as the bush wakes, to head off on early game drive, looking for those abundant elephants, as well as masses of buffalo and birds. The open-top, view-unrestricted vehicles will make you feel more immersed in the wilderness, while boat safaris on the Chobe River offer close-ups of crocs and hippos, and the most magical sunset spot.

Day 7 – Chobe to Livingstone
This morning you bid farewell to your camp staff as you depart Chobe and travel by road to Victoria Falls, crossing the border into Zimbabwe.  You are then driven to the majestic Victoria Falls.

Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma is built on a dramatic bend of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, twelve kilometers upstream from the world-famous Victoria Falls.  Named after Dr. David Livingstone's faithful friends Sussi and Chuma, the lodge is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Zambezi amidst jackal berry trees and phoenix palms, providing unrivalled views and exclusivity. Accommodation is in twelve Sussi tree-houses, connected by wooden walkways.
