    Chitabe Camp, Chitabe Lediba or Tubu Tree Camp L/D

    Chitabe Camp is a luxurious tented camp built on one of the most beautiful islands in the Okavango Delta, in a private area which is bordered on three sides by the Moremi Game Reserve. The camp is located in a diverse area incorporating mopane woodlands, acacia, floodplains and the perennial delta, all of which provide a variety of wildlife. Each tent has twin beds, en-suite facilities and an indoor as well as an outdoor shower. The thatched dining area, lounge and pub are built on raised decks overlooking the surrounding flood plains, and a pool allows guests to cool off from the heat of the day.

    Neighboring the Moremi Game Reserve in the south-east of the Okavango Delta, Chitabe Lediba is small, just right as a private camp for small groups or families. Its two family units have adjoining bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. All five spacious Meru-style tents are built on raised decks and have the same luxurious interiors as Chitabe Camp. En-suite bathrooms complement the outdoor shower "with a view." A dining area, lounge and pool have glorious views over the surrounding floodplains.

    Tubu Tree Camp is a small camp built on the western side of Hunda Island, situated in the Okavango's Jao Reserve. The camp is surrounded by diverse habitats ranging from dry Kalahari sandveld to mopane and riverine forest on the edge of permanent waterways, ensuring diverse and spectacular game viewing. The camp is built in traditional style with tents on raised wooden platforms, allowing great views over the floodplains. Each of the five tents has a private front deck, en-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower. The main dining and lounge areas and pool are also raised on platforms and an outdoor pub area lies under the canopy of a large Marula tree. Website: www.tubutreecamp.com

    Day 3 To Savuti Camp, Duma Tau or Little Vumbura
    Today after your morning game drive and brunch, you will be transferred to via light aircraft to Savuti Camp in the Linyanti Reserve. Enjoy two nights in a tented room.
    Savuti Camp, Duma Tau or Little Vumbura B/L/D

    Savuti Camp is situated in an isolated part of the Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel in northern Botswana. Between 1980 and 2008 the Savute Channel ceased to flow, creating an unusual and productive ribbon of grassland that served as a corridor and feeding ground for a wide variety of herbivores in the surrounding woodland. In 2008, the Savuti Channel once more became a deep, clear waterway harboring hippo and aquatic life with a myriad of water birds.. From the camp's thatched dining area and pub, a plunge pool and large viewing area with fire pit extend outward on raised wooden decks towards the Channel. Website: www.savuticamp.com

    DumaTau (meaning 'roar of the lion') is a ten-roomed luxury tented camp, in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. The camp is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, overlooking a large hippo-filled lagoon on the Linyanti waterways close to the source of the Savuti Channel. The bathroom facilities are en-suite, with hot and cold running water, and each room has an additional outside shower. The main area of camp includes a dining room, pub, lounge, plunge pool and a special guest toilet with a fantastic view. Website: www.dumatau.com

    Little Vumbura is situated on an island in a private concession in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta - in the same region as its sister camp Vumbura Plains. It is a beautiful six-roomed tented camp shaded by the canopy of the ancient Okavango forest. Each tent is large and roomy and has en-suite facilities. A plunge pool and reading area overlook the floodplains and a star deck leads off the dining area. Surrounded as it is by water and lying close to large rivers, water-based activities are a focus with mokoros traversing the floodplains under the guidance of experienced polers.

    Victoria Falls Hotel B/L
    The Victoria Falls Hotel, popularly known as "the grand old lady of the Falls", is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site, and is a member of the exclusive Leading Hotels of the World group. The Edwardian-style five-star hotel, built in 1904, combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquility and seclusion that many guests seek. The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel's private pathway, and "the smoke that thunders" or "Mosi-O-Tunya" in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark. For guests who wish to take in some game viewing, a three mile drive (or walk) brings them to the national park and, guided by professional rangers, they will seek out Zimbabwe's "big five" - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo - and be able to capture their encounters forever, on camera!
