Many of us who have been on many safaris know that feeling of wanting to get out the vehicle and stretch your legs and burn of some of some of that incredible food you have in the camps. This safari allows you to do just that. You will begin your trip by flying into the Makgadikgadi Pans national park for a 3 night stay in Camp Kalahari, this semi-arid desert environment has an incredible diversity of wildlife amongst a number of activities to keep you more than busy. From here fly north into one of the best game viewing areas Africa has to offer, Khwai. As well as walking and mokroing here the chances of seeing large predators such as wild dog, lion and leopard are very high as well as huge population of elephant. You will be staying at the incredible Khwai Tented Camp. To finish of you trip fly north west to Victoria falls in Zimbabwe for 3 nights at Victoria Fall Hotel. This is the perfect finish to any safari perfect for adrenaline junkies who like bungee jumping, white water rafting and even gorge swinging, or you may just like some down time and to wander around this natural wonder of the world.
