A safari for those who are looking for something different. Our overland tours are lead by our CEO Will Fox who has worked extensively throughout Africa for the last fifteen years. We travel from South Africa to Northern Botswana and on to Zimbabwe and the magnificent Victoria Falls, with return flight to Johannesburg. Along the way you will visit the Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe National Park and much more. This overland tour is for those who wish to enjoy travelling in Africa where the journey is as important as the places you visit. We travel in specially adapted air conditioned 4x4 vehicles with roof top tents, and mix camping in remote locations with game lodge accommodation. Northern Botswana has more Elephants than any other African location together with free roaming big cats and plentiful plains game.
Our next overland safari departs from Johannesburg on the 13th of May 2018 when the weather is normally ideal for this form of travel and for visiting many of the locations. Safari

Day 7&8: Moremi Game Reserve: Khwai Community Camp

Driving in this area is mainly on sand roads, which limits the distances we can reasonably achieve each day. With this in mind we will stop over en-route to the Chobe National Park at Khwai Community Camp in the Moremi game reserve.
Moremi wildlife reserve combines mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. It is the great diversity of plant and animal life that makes Moremi so well known. The Khawa River is well known for wildlife and offers some of the best viewing in Southern Africa.

Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
You can take a guided walk to see the falls, but our advice is to walk the Vic Falls footpath under your own steam. The path from the entrance gate is clearly marked an you can read about the salient points on the info boards inside.
