Itinerary

Days 1 – 3: Moremi Magic

Scheduled flight from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport to Maun Airport in Botswana. Fly by shared charter to the Moremi Game Reserve & Camp Moremi for 3 nights on a full board basis.

The Moremi Game Reserve protects much of the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s greatest wildlife destinations. You’ll fly in by shared charter from Maun Airport, touching down in the Xakanaxa region, long famous for the quality of its game viewing. Hosted by the ever-friendly staff at Camp Moremi, you’ll explore the area on morning and afternoon game drives as well as by mokoro, the delta’s traditional canoe, steered by a local guide. Elephants, lions and hippo are among the heavyweights here but you’ll also be on the lookout for leopard, wild dog and rare antelope such as sable and roan.

Days 4 – 6: Land of Giants

Charter flight to Savute Safari Lodge in the Chobe National Park. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis.

It’s a short flight from Moremi to Savute, the central region of the Chobe National Park. It’s a much more open and drier landscape here, dominated by local waterholes and the Savute Channel. You’ll be collected at the airstrip and taken to Savute Safari Lodge, its luxurious chalets overlooking the channel itself. It’s prime big game country here and the focus is on game drives with expert guides. Predators are something of a Savute speciality as are the area’s bull elephants, enormous grey battleships that roam Savute’s woodlands. In summer, birthing impala herds and a zebra migration adds to the drama.

Days 7 – 9: The Smoke that Thunders

Charter flight to Kasane Airport on the Chobe River & an overland transfer across the border into Zambia & Tongabezi Lodge on the Zambezi River, upstream from Victoria Falls. Spend 3 nights on a full board basis.

You’ll reach Tongabezi Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River via shared air charter and overland transfer across the border into Zambia. Regarded as the discerning traveller’s choice of accommodation at Victoria Falls, Tongabezi is home to superb river-facing suites and boasts an idyllic, secluded setting a few miles upstream from hustle and bustle of the waterfall. Book yourself a massage and a private dinner before heading off to explore – not for nothing is Victoria Falls known as Africa’s Adventure Centre and you have everything from white-water rafting, bungee jumping and elephant-back safaris to choose from.

Days 10 – 12: A Private Big 5 Safari

Transfer to Livingstone Airport & a scheduled flight to Nelspruit, near the Kruger National Park. Overland transfer to Savanna Lodge, set in the Sabi Sands Private Reserve adjoining the Kruger. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis.

A flight to South Africa and an overland transfer from Nelspruit Airport take you to the welcoming atmosphere of Savanna Lodge in the Sabi Sands. A collection of privately-run game reserves adjoining the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sands delivers Africa’s best Big 5 game viewing in an exclusive setting with the added advantage of being able to offer spot-lit night drives and guided walks too. You’ll enjoy tented chalet accommodation at Savanna, a well-appointed timber and thatch lodge with a pool, landscaped gardens, a gym and plenty of comfortable chairs overlooking waterholes.

Days 13 – 15: At the Heart of the V&A

Overland transfer to Nelspruit for your scheduled flight to Cape Town where you’ll be met and taken to the Victoria & Alfred Hotel at the V&A Waterfront for 3 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

The Mother City is your final destination on this Grand Tour and you have prime position at the super-safe V&A Waterfront. The V&A Hotel lies at the heart of it all, a short stroll to the Robben Island Ferry, Two Oceans Aquarium and every shop and restaurant you could need. Take your time to settle in and plan the next few days – there is the Boulders Beach penguin colony and Cape Point to fit in as well as a trip up Table Mountain and, depending on the season, shark-cage diving and whale watching too. Be sure to sample some of the Cape’s wines on a trip to the Winelands or visit the city’s museums and historic districts on a walking tour.

Day 16: The Journey Ends

Overland transfer to Cape Town International Airport for your onward connection.

After breakfast at the V&A you’ll be transferred to Cape Town International Airport for your onward connection.

Reviews

Exceptional service ensuring a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended

Attention to detail & service provided was first class, from our very first email to the last day of our trip. Walter went above and beyond to ensure that we were notified of any changes, even up to our last day with a change to our flight time, at short notice. The safari was so much more than expected, from the rustic to the exceptional, every camp was different in it’s own way and our highlights are hard to single out just one as each camp was great.

The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

Faultless service, attention to detail and quality of accomodations.

The communications and service from Walter was excellent, and we were continuously fully informed. The information package and book received on arrival were excellent. We felt that we had been allocated carefully selected lodges at each camp and every detail met or exceeded our expectations.
The safari tour was wonderful, and a particular feature was the variety offered at each location which combined perfectly

Trip of a lifetime: Five countries, six camps, Vic Falls, Big Five plus more game

In June/July 2016 we undertook a trip to Southern Africa to fulfill a lifelong intention. We stayed at six camps, safari style, and had a great time. All of our expectations were met or even exceeded. For example, we never expected to see honey badgers or sitatunga, given the secretive nature of those species, but we did! All travel arrangements and connections worked smoothly, which is astonishing since we had several dozen transfers and meeting points; all of the connecting personnel were prompt, professional, and welcoming.

Best experience ever!!

They provide us the most taylored and customized honeymoon possible! everything was much better than we expected. We loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and everyone made us feeling so incredibly special and gave us a unique insight. Over our game drives we managed to see all the big five plus some!!

Experience of a lifetime and wonderful service!!

Our extended family (16 travellers, including 8 children under ten years of age!) went on a wonderful safari adventure curated and organised by Walter Kohrs of Safari Online. It could not have been any better than we experienced. From our time in Cape Town, to visiting Victoria Falls, all the way through Zimbabwe and finally wrapping up at the amazing Chobe Safari Lodge, all the locations chosen by Walter were amazing.

His attention to detail, willingness to fine-tune and excellent responsiveness (over a period of several months!) could not have been better. He took time to visit us personally upon our arrival in South Africa, with lovely gift-packs and shared a wealth of advice, recommendations and tips. I cannot recommend Safari Online (and Walter Kohrs in particular) any higher. Absolutely amazing.

Absolutely Perfect

I was already last year in South Africa and Zambia organized by Safari Online. It was a absolutely gorgeous trip. Everything was perfect. This was the reason I booked this year in May and June an new trip to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. I got everything I expected. It was a dream again. I know I´m coming back.

We had a wonderful holiday with no hitches, perfectly planned for us and so professional.

Though we live in Australia, Safari online made planning for our family holiday so easy. Walter understood our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. The holiday was everything we wanted it to be and so much more. Every camp was ideally suited for our family and we loved each day, every early morning and evening game drive. Thank you to Walter for his attention to detail and his friendly, professional and caring manner. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will talk about forever.

Outstanding experience!

We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
