Day 6-7: Okavango Delta - Belmond Eagle Island Camp
Belmond Eagle Island Lodge Botswana safari
Return to the airport for your scheduled flight to Maun, where you will board a light aircraft and continue to Belmond Eagle Island Camp.

Offering an unrivaled water-based safari, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has just reopened in November 2015 with a totally new look and feel, following a ten-month closure and almost total rebuild. The fresh new tented guest accommodation, restaurants and lounges reflect the region’s natural beauty and the adventures of early explorers.

Located in one of the delta’s most pristine natural locations with a myriad of waterways, palm-treed islands, and vast flood plains. The camp offers a choice of game viewing by mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) or motorized sundowner cruises in the surrounding lagoons, walks and helicopter safaris.
A scenic helicopter flight over Botswana is one of life’s big adventures. Surprisingly, you may hover just a few feet over great herds of zebra as they continue to graze, completely unconcerned. Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is the only camp in the Okavango Delta that boasts a permanently based helicopter, allowing every one of our guests the opportunity to experience this once in a lifetime adventure.

Day 8-9: Moremi Wildlife Reserve - Belmond Khwai River Lodge
Belmond Khwai River Lodge relaxing on safari
Overlooking the vast Khwai River floodplains and beyond, Belmond Khwai River Lodge offers morning, afternoon and after-dark night-vision game drives in open Land Cruisers.

A cultural visit to the local village can be arranged, as well as guided safari walks along the Khwai River.

If you wish to enjoy a little pampering, arrange an indulgent massage and body wrap in the spa or in the privacy of your own tent.

Day 10-11: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe - The Victoria Falls Hotel
Victoria Falls Hotel accommodation - Deluxe Suite
Transfer by light aircraft to Vic Falls and by road to the historic Victoria Falls Hotel.

In the afternoon you’ll enjoy a private guided walking tour of Victoria Falls followed by a magnificent sundowner cruise on the mighty Zambezi River.
