Arrive in Johannesburg this morning and connect to the scheduled flight to Victoria Falls. Your hotel is so close to Victoria Falls that you might even hear the crash of millions of gallons of water into the river below. Later this afternoon, experience the river with a Sunset Cruise.

Day 2 Victoria Falls (B)
Your stay starts with a visit to the "smoke that thunders", spectacular Victoria Falls. The Falls are over 5,500 feet across and more than 300 feet high. Each minute, more than 150 million gallons of water form an amazing "wall of water" as they crash to the gorge below. Later, you'll visit a nearby village for an up close look at local life. Tonight, a treat awaits as you enjoy a boma dinner.

Day 3 Victoria Falls-Okavango Delta (BLD)
A road transfer takes you from Victoria Falls to Kasane in Botswana. From here, join a light aircraft transfer over this wetland paradise to your choice of camp deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Later, choose from land-based or (if available) water-based game viewing activities.
Day 4 Okavango Delta (BLD)
One of the highlights of a stay in the Okavango is the excellent bird-viewing. Pels Fishing Owl, reed cormorants, house darters, kingfishers, fish eagles and much more dot the reeds along the water-line. Why not take a mokoro excursion and glide quietly through the water observing wildlife along the way.
Day 5 Okavango Delta (BLD)
The Okavango Delta represents the extreme contrast of a water-filled world in an otherwise arid desert. With luck, you might spot the water-adapted red lechwe and greater kudo. Of course, predators are around so be on the lookout for leopard and hyena as well.
Day 6 Okavango Delta-Cape Town (B)
This morning a light aircraft flight takes you back to Kasane, from where you travel by road to Victoria Falls to take the flight to Cape Town. Upon arrival in South Africa's beautiful harbor city, you will be met and transferred to your luxurious hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
Day 7 Cape Town (B)
Today enjoy a tour of the Cape Peninsula. Travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and spend time exploring the rocky coastline. Take the funicular ride to the lighthouse at Cape Point and enjoy the magnificent views. Visit Boulders Beach to see the African Penguin before returning to Cape Town.
Day 8 Cape Town (B)
Today's moving sightseeing takes you to District Six where you learn about the effects of apartheid on the city and its people. You'll have a chance to stop at a local "shebeen" (pub) as well as get up close to see the differences in housing and the progress that has been made since apartheid was abolished. After lunch on your own, continue the journey as you take the ferry ride to Robben Island, the infamous prison that housed Nelson Mandela for more than 18 of his 27 years in prison.
Day 9 Cape Town-Depart (B)
The day is at leisure today until your transfer to the airport for your homeward-bound flight.
