Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Countries Visited

Botswana , Zimbabwe

  1. Day 1
    Into the Okavango Delta, Botswana
    From Maun Airport, take a safari transfer flight over vast, virtually uninhabited swaths of northern Botswana to a remote corner of the famed Okavango Delta. Here in the private Abu Concession, famed for its elephant herds, the intimate Seba Camp offers 8 stylishly-appointed tented rooms, all with private decks. Upon arrival at Seba, you can join fellow guests in the lounge, go for a refreshing plunge in the pool or take in the sweeping vistas over the surrounding riverine forest and a perennial lagoon that attracts a wide variety of big game.
    Meals D
  2. Day 2
    Okavango by land
    Morning, afternoon and night time game drives take you deep into the surrounding forests and grasslands interlaced with waterways. Led by General Tours certified, expertly trained safari guide, you’re likely to encounter fierce predators like lion, spotted hyena and the occasional leopard and wild dog. Huge herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra and wildebeest also inhabit the pristine Abu Concession.
    Meals B+L+D
  3. Day 3
    Okavango by water
    With lifelong skill, your safari guide will use his ngashi, a long wooden pole, to steer and propel your mokoro canoe through the narrow channels of the Okavango Delta. Drifting in near complete silence puts you at one with the environment, making it all the easier to spot the animals that come to the river to quench their thirst. Tsessebe, red lechwe, impala and zebra often graze at water’s edge and with 380 species recorded, this pristine sector of the Delta is also a birder’s paradise.
    Meals B+L+D
  4. Day 4
    Onward to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
    Take off from the Abu airstrip and fly to Kasane. From here, General Tours take you overland across the border into Zimbabwe to the Victoria Falls Hotel where adventurers have met and gathered for nearly a century. Later this afternoon, head down to the banks of the Zambezi River. We’ve chartered a boat for a private cruise that begins with sundowner cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a chance to see hippos and crocodiles wallowing in the water as well as elephant and antelope grazing at river’s edge. As the sun sets and stars begin to fill the darkening sky, an elegant 3-course plated dinner will be served.
    Meals B+D
  5. Day 5
    Experience the thrill of Victoria Falls
    David Livingstone was the first European to visit the Falls and named it after Queen Victoria. But locals still call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Smoke that Thunders. As General Tours expert guide takes you along scenic paths through the rainforest alive with birdlife, you’ll hit the best vantage points including a heart-pounding view over the famed Devil’s cataract. And by tour’s end, you might agree that the local name best captures the dramatic spray and deafening roar of the mighty Zambezi River as it plunges more than 300 feet over a mile-wide chasm! The rest of this day is yours to delight in the Edwardian elegance of your hotel.
    Meals B
  6. Day 6
    To Hwange National Park
    This morning’s flight brings you to Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, a 3-million acre expanse of sandy spoils and broad-leafed woodland at the eastern edge of the fabled Kalahari Desert. Your destination is the intimate Davison’s Camp, offering complete privacy with 9 luxurious tents set on the private Linkwasha Concession. This prime southeastern sector of the Park has one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in all of Africa.
    Meals B+D
  7. Day 7
    Explore Hwange National Park
    Boasting over 100 mammal species, including elephant herds and fierce predators, your safari experiences at Hwange promise unforgettable stories and photos you’ll be sharing long after your return home. You’ll track the Big 5 and maybe spot rare White rhino or the surprisingly ferocious honey badger.
    Meals B+L+D
  8. Day 8
    More of Hwange National Park
    Along with game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, bush walks with General Tours expert safari guides promise a rare and genuine connection to Africa. And in between these guided activities, spending time on your private verandah can be equally thrilling as giraffe, wildebeest, reedbuck, impala, and zebra congregate at the Camp’s waterhole.
    Meals B+L+D
  9. Day 9
    Depart Hwange
    Fly to Victoria Falls Airport for total convenience as you connect to any onward international flight.

More Space + Extra Care While Dining

And Always... Alexander Roberts' Distinctive Style

In a Small Group of Never More than 16 Guests or on a Privately Guided Tour for just your traveling party, their experienced guides have the flexibility to adjust your sightseeing based upon local conditions – to avoid times of heaviest traffic and crowding, for example. Alexander Roberts can dine in smaller authentic restaurants, minimize the time waiting in lines, and leave a lighter footprint. You’ll learn the history and stories behind the world’s most iconic landmarks, immerse more deeply in the wonders of the natural world, and delight in genuine cultural engagement not possible in a larger group. It’s travel without a crowd.
