Today we fly by light aircraft to the water-filled paradise of the Okavango Delta to Shinde Camp where we
will spend 2 nights. Located in the northern region of Okavango Delta. Shinde is regarded as the best
all-around camp. Newly appointed accommodation at Shinde Camp are on a twin-bed basis and consist of
fully enclosed Meru tents with en suite shower and toilet. The perfect balance between authentic and luxury.
Shinde is nestled on a lush palm island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta. Located at the edge of
a lagoon, it is surrounded by clear waterways, which flow over white sands and past palm-fringed islands
teeming with birdlife and game. This is a photographer's delight. The island is especially favored by
members of the antelope family, including the elusive sitatunga whose elongated and splayed hooves
enable it to walk on the unstable beds of reed floating on the water. Shinde's abundant wildlife and the silent
waters of the Okavango combine to make your stay a rare and unique experience.
After breakfast on your last morning at Shinde Camp we connect with our light air craft to our next camp set in
the Savuti region of the Chobe National Park .
This area is well known for its prolific predators including Lion and Leopard. There is also an opportunity to
view Cheetah and African Wild Dog, two of Africa’s most endangered predators. The drama of this region is
played out amongst the hills that dot the landscape and the dry Savuti channel and marsh. The open feel of
the area reminds us of an Africa of old. Elephant bulls, older than the country itself, lumber from water hole to
water hole, in search of much needed moisture. Night time brings on the calls of the nocturnal animals - the
roar of Lions send us to bed with the excitement of the days ahead.
After breakfast we connect to light air craft transfer to Kasane. From Kasane Airport we transfer by road to
the Victoria Falls where we will spend two nights at The Victoria Falls Hotel. A visit the falls is a must and the
hotel boast a private pathway to the entrance. Entry fees are around USD 25 per person and can be settled
directly at the gate . For almost 100 years, visiting members of Royal families, international and local
statesmen, and celebrities worldwide, have preferred to stay at The Victoria Falls Hotel, where they are
assured of privacy and care. An atmosphere steeped in history, combining the charm of the old with the
comfort and convenience of today. It is one hotel that can truly claim to be unique.
During the late 1940's, the Solent Flying Boat service, offered by Imperial Airways, became one of the more
interesting ways to travel to Africa. This service flew from Southampton, England to Johannesburg, South
Africa. The Solents landed and were serviced on a beach of the Zambezi above the Victoria Falls.
This stopover became known as the "Jungle Junction" and was soon the favourite stop on the route, as all
passengers disembarked and stayed at The Victoria Falls Hotel. Breakfast and dinner buffets with Makishi
dancers and an indigenous choir entertain travellers each night.
