Kruger, Victoria Falls & Botswana
In whichever order you choose combine these three highlights, this is the ultimate African experience. We recommend starting with the Kruger Park in South Africa, where you’ll be tracking the Big 5 in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve – which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and is without a doubt the world’s best place to see leopard and the Big 5. From there, move on to ogling the Victoria Falls in Zambia, where you’ll call Royal Chundu home, before heading off to Botswana, to meander through the Okavango Delta and Selinda Reserve.

Day 1-4: Londolozi, Sabi Sand
From OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg you’ll fly to Kruger Airport and then take a short air hop on a scheduled charter flight into the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve for three magical nights at Londolozi Private Game Reserve, a reserve that sets the benchmark for luxury safaris. During your time here enjoy fine dining and two game drives a day, one early morning and another in the coolness of late afternoon.
You’ll head out in an open safari vehicle with an expert ranger and trackers at the helm to help seek out the big cats of the reserve and the other wildlife that call it home – from a pack of wild dog to a crash of rhino. Listen closely, these are some of the most experienced rangers in Africa… with many stories to tell.
Day 4-6: Royal Chundu, Zambia
Once your Kruger safari comes to an end you’ll be transferred to the Kruger airport for your flight direct to Livingstone on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls. You’ll be met and driven to Royal Chundu. You’ll be staying in our Island Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River, upstream from the magnificent Victoria Falls. During your stay, take a day trip to the Falls, or join us at the lodge on a sunset and sunrise cruise, fishing, canoeing, bird watching, a viluber-royal-chundu/lage tour and an island walk.
Day 6-9: Savute Elephant Camp, Botswana
You will take a cross border transfer from Royal Chundu to Savute Elephant Camp – an exclusive and luxurious lodge in the Savute channel which is in the area that connects the Okavango Delta with the Southern part of the Chobe National Park. You’ll spend three nights here, experiencing the magic of the Delta and seeing incredible wildlife.
Day 9-13: Zarafa Camp
Next you’ll be transferred to Zarafa Camp, for four nights in the private 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana. Zarafa Camp merges discreetly into its wild surroundings with only four tented suits overlooking the remote Zibadianja Lagoon. On game drives, Zarafa Camp’s guides will lead you up close to the lion prides, elephant herds and other incredible wildlife that call this part of Africa home. At the end of your stay you will be transferred to Maun Airport for a flight back to Johannesburg.
