Delta and Chobe Safari

Delta and Chobe Safari is one tour that gives you a feel of the 3 countries Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Windhoek the capital of Namibia is embedded with history from pre-colonial era to present day Namibia. As you drive down to Gobabis the view of the semi-desert Namibia is quite clear with landscape ever-changing. As you head through the Central Kalahari, you have wildlife in its natural state of existence. A stop to learn about the famous Khoisan tribe in Ghanzi is an eye opener on how life is still possible in the bush.

The Kalahari desert quickly fades as it is engulfed by the Okavango Delta and a complete change of vegetation. Delta and Chobe safari is a contrast of the desert and delta lying side by side.

Special transport can take you to the open veld of the Chobe and the water channels of the Okavango. 4×4 open safari vehicles will take you across Savuti and Moremi while the wooden canoe cuts through the reeds and tall grass of the delta. The two support an enormous variety of wildlife which is Africa’s pride. When you are done with land safari through the Chobe national park, you still have the river safari through the Chobe river which merges into the Zambezi river in Kasane. The peak of the tour is the magnificent Victoria Falls. It’s the greatest waterfall in the world with a charming effect that goes beyond what you have dreamt of. Enjoy Delta and Chobe safari for the desert, the delta and the waterfalls after long days of game viewing.

Overview

Delta and Chobe Trails is a two-way tour that can start from Victoria Falls and ends in Windhoek. Road trips in Africa are exceptional in the sense that you cut across wild areas and see wildlife in their natural state. From Namibia to Botswana enjoy the semi-desert of Namibia as slowly but eventually land in the Central Kalahari. The Kalahari sands still support vegetation that gives life to livestock and wildlife. Yet it is also home to the Khoisan tribe who still finds life easy in the desert. The Okavango Delta has a buffer zone of 22 000 ha and is one of the biggest inland deltas in Africa. Bordering the Okavango is the Moremi game reserve, a veritable paradise for animals of all kinds. Far from the reeds and grass of the Okavango the Savuti and Greater Chobe extends into the Kalahari desert but with vast herds of buffaloes and elephants that feed mostly on the butterfly tree. On the other end of the Delta is the Chobe river which supports most wildlife on the northern half of Botswana. Your tour ends with the view of the mighty Victoria Falls. It is a World heritage site and surely one of the seven wonders of the world not to be missed.
