Day 1
Upon arrival at OR Tambo (Johannesburg) International Airport you will be met by an Island-Safari.com representative who will hand your tickets to you and assist you with check-in for your scheduled flight to Livingstone. Check-in time for International flights is two hours prior to departure.

Upon arrival of your flight at Livingstone Airport you will be met by your driver and transferred by road to Stanley Safari Lodge.

Stanley Safari Lodge is located on a hill overlooking a spray of the Victoria Falls, and bordering the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. The lodge has superb chalets, each individually designed and built in traditional African materials and offering some of the best sunsets in the world. Stanley Safari Lodge offers 7 spacious and comfortable cottages with 2 members of staff for every client. A highly personalized service is offered at the lodge, with focus on individual attention.

Accommodation varies from double rooms to the honeymoon suite, which has its own fireplace and plunge pool. Each of the cottages is individually designed, decorated with local materials and all rooms are entirely different, catering for the discerning traveller. All the cottages have their own private garden and dining area and the open-sided design gives views across the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park to the Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls.

The main house provides a restaurant with French style cuisine but if you wish you can also dine under the stars on the lawn or in the privacy of your own cottage. The lodge can organise a full range of activities such as horse riding, bush walks, trips to the Victoria Falls, game drives, river boarding, fishing trips, bungee jumping, helicopter flights above the Victoria Falls and fishing and sun downer trips with a beautiful view over the mighty Zambezi. A lunch cruise or a sunset cruise is a more relaxing way to enjoy the beauty of the Mighty Zambezi River

Only 3 km from Stanley Safari Lodge is the 800-year old traditional village of Chief Mukuni, 'Monarch of the Victoria Falls'. Stanley Safari Lodge offers guests an opportunity to visit the neighbouring traditional village, which is over 800 years old. Evenings can be spent sampling wine from the cellars or unwinding by the hearth, with the matchless African skies providing an unforgettable backdrop. Guests here can enjoy the sights and sounds of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River on a peaceful and serene setting away from the crowds.

Two overnights at Stanley Safari Lodge in a standard double cottage with private en-suite facilities inclusive of all meals, local drinks, house wines (not premium wines, champagne and liqueurs), laundry service, Livingstone Airport transfers, a guided tour of the Victoria Falls and a sunset cruise.

Other activities and other transfers are not included.

Day 6
This morning you will be transferred to Kasane Airport by your guide in time for your scheduled light aircraft charter flight to Mapula.

Mapula Lodge is situated in the remote North Eastern area of the Okavango Delta, outside the National Park. All the activities and adventure safaris at this Botswana safari lodge, allow you to witness and experience the beauty of Africa.

Accommodation is in 10 well appointed luxury Chalets, each with en-suite facilities (bath and shower) and each overlooking the lagoon in front of the Lodge. The attention to detail and use of local craftsmanship in the construction of the Chalets is particularly impressive and attractive.

Facilities in the Lodge include a small swimming pool and sun deck and a well stocked bar. Game viewing is particularly good in this area. Hippos live in the lagoon opposite the lodge, and the trees around the Lodge are home to a huge variety of birds.

Being in a permanent water area, Mapula Lodge can offer year round water activities, especially important during January - May when water levels in the Okavango can become too low to allow the use of the traditional mokoro.

Three Overnights at Mapula in a standard twin chalet with private en-suite facilities inclusive of all meals, all local brand drinks, teas/coffees, snacks, game-viewing and laundry.

Day 9
A transfer today, to the airstrip in time for your scheduled light aircraft charter flight to Moremi Crossing.

Moremi Crossing is a new tented camp, set on a palm-fringed island, which overlooks the Okavango Delta's famed Chief's Island.

Accommodation is in 16 simple, yet comfortable, tents. The Camp has been designed in a fully eco-friendly manner, and used the latest in solar and waste disposal technology. The main building has a large open plan deck (built on different levels) that has a spectacular view over the Boro River and onto Chief's Island. Dining room, bar and lounge are covered by a large thatched roof that hugs the tree line

In addition, there are a number of small private lounge areas, which allow for comfort, privacy and space. From here there is a shaded decked area that leads to the pool. The entire camp is also shaded by magnificent llala palms, ebony, mangosteen, sausage and giant fig trees. Activities are aimed at being personalised, and guiding is of a high level. Half or full-day activities are on offer.

Guests can enjoy a mokoro excursion (traditional dug-out), where you glide along the channels of the delta, with their papyrus lined banks. Mokoro excursions are subject to water levels and are usually only available May - November. Should you wish to do a full day trip, you get to combine the water excursion, with short bush walks, and a delicious picnic lunch.

A bush walk is the best way to explore the wilderness, under the guidance and education of your own personal guide. Bush walks can be enjoyed independently of the mokoro excursion. If you are feeling a little more adventurous, there you might enjoy a night or two camping out in the 'bush'. Your mokoro is packed with basic equipment and food, and your guide will find an island to set up camp.

The camp also boasts small motor-boats, which allow for cruises on the Boro River itself - once again water levels permitting. You can enjoy drifting along a lagoon, and watch the sun set.

Two overnights at Moremi Crossing in a standard twin tent with private en-suite facilities inclusive of all meals, snacks, teas and coffees, local brand beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) laundry service, all game-viewing activities and park fee - Mokoro Excursions, Sunset Cruises, Game Walks and Fishing
