Detailed Itinerary:

D1: JOHANNESBURG

We’ll meet up at the hotel at the end of the morning and depart by coach towards Soweto, which came to the world's attention in 1976 with the Soweto Uprising, when mass protests erupted over the government's policy to enforce education in the Afrikaans language rather than English. It has been estimated that one-third of Johannesburg’s population lives in Soweto. All eleven of South Africa’s official languages are spoken here. It is a community of extremes: on the one hand there is abject poverty, and on the other hand there is extraordinary wealth in the suburbs such as Diepkloof Extension and Selection Park. We’ll have lunch before setting out on a panoramic tour to discover Freedom Park and the unique atmosphere in this well-known neighborhood. We’ll have dinner and spend the night at a four-star hotel.

D2: JOHANNESBURG - KASANE - ARRIVAL AT LODGE - SEDUDU ISLAND

We’ll fly from Johannesburg to Kasane, Botswana. You’ll be transferred from the airport to CroisiEurope's four-star lodge where you'check into your rooms before enjoying lunch. We'll see Sedudu Island and its marshes, overflowing with abundant wildlife such as hippopotami, water buffalos and crocodiles. We’ll have dinner and spend the night at the lodge.

D3: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

In the morning, we’ll leave for a visit to the local school to meet the teachers and students. This will be a truly unique face-to-face experience that will enrichen your travels. We’ll return to the lodge for lunch. Enjoy some free time this afternoon to take advantage of the activities proposed at the lodge or spend the time relaxing under the trees or by the pool.
After dinner tonight, let a local storyteller entrance you with the mysterious legends of the region. We’ll spend the night at the lodge.

D4: IMPALILA ISLAND

This morning, join us for a trip to an authentic village to discover the culture and customs of the area. We’ll meet the locals and learn about traditional Namibian houses, as well as a baobab tree thought to be over 2,000 years old. After lunch at the lodge, join us for some activities delving into local customs. Dinner will be served under the stars this evening, a truly wonderful way to experience the African skies. We’ll spend the night at the lodge.

D5: CHOBE RIVER (Embarkation Day) - CRUISING ON THE AFRICAN DREAM

This morning we’ll leave on an early water safari to try to catch more than a glimpse of the big five. We’ll have lunch in “floating restaurant” in the middle of the river and feast on some local delicacies. You’ll then be transferred to board our luxury ship, the African Dream. Enjoy lunch after a welcome cocktail. Our first nature and wildlife cruise will be to observe the different species along the Kasai Channel. Afterwards, we’ll return to our private mooring in the heart of the Chobe River. We’ll have dinner and spend the night onboard.

D6: CRUISING ON THE AFRICAN DREAM

We’ll journey out on our safari today in Jeeps equipped exclusively with misters for the comfort of our guests. We’ll explore the splendid park that is home to more than 1/4 of the total elephant population in Africa. We’ll have lunch before spending the afternoon cruising to the Zambezi River, marking the border between Zambia and Namibia. In the afternoon, we’ll leave on small motor boats for a water safari in search of the larger animals. You’ll enjoy a unique, up-close experience with the wildlife that lives on the banks from just a few yards away. We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board.

D7: CRUISING ON THE AFRICAN DREAM

We’ll spend the day cruising to Kabulabula. The Chobe National Park has a myriad of swamps, flooded plains, lakes and rivers, making this cruise the ideal and most-adapted way to set out on unforgettable tours. Along the entire route, you’ll discover some of the richest pockets of wildlife in Africa, including zebras, water buffalos, antelopes and an abundance of birds. We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board.

D8: VICTORIA FALLS (Disembarkation Day)

We’ll leave by coach for Victoria Falls and on an exceptional lunch cruise at the foot of the falls. This afternoon, we’ll leave for a tour on foot of the falls in Zimbabwe, where the views are among the most exceptional in the world. We’ll also see where the Zambezi River plunges over the cliff to become the tallest waterfall in the world, creating the “smoke that thunders.” Tonight we’ll enjoy a “Boma” dinner with traditional dance and music. We’ll spend the night at a four-star hotel.

D9: VICTORIA FALLS

Optional early morning excursion: Soar over Victoria Falls in a helicopter or walk with lion cubs. End of our services.
