Okavango Experience

Johannesburg to Victoria Falls

Basix overland tour with Intrepid

Travel through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe and experience the Okavango Delta

Enter an aquatic wonderland on this adventure through south-east Africa's iconic waterfalls, rivers and inland waterways. Marvel at the crashing white water of Victoria Falls, the unique, sprawling Okavango Delta and the tranquillity of the natural waterholes in the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. Pack a camera and an eye for adventure because these lush pockets of wilderness will reward travellers with exciting animal encounters, awesome photography opportunities and sweet memories to last a lifetime.

Why you'll love this trip

  • Support local conservation by visiting the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, the only place left in Botswana where both black and white rhinos reside

  • Camping on a remote island in the heart of the Okavango wilderness is an experience you’ll never forget. As night falls, the sounds of the African bush are like nothing else

  • Get acquainted with the fine art of 'poling' as you ride a traditional dugout canoe through the lush waterways of the Okavango Delta

  • Explore the magnificent Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, some of the largest salt flats in the world. These mind-bending plains make for some magical photography

  • Go wildlife-spotting along the river at Chobe National Park, home of the world's highest concentration of African elephants

  • With two nights at Victoria Falls, you'll get a proper view of this thundering spectacle, with additional time for optional adventures

Is this trip right for you?

  • Camping out in the Okavango wilderness means digging a bush toilet and going without a shower. For most travellers this is a small price to pay for such a gorgeous remote island location.

  • The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth any loss of sleep.

  • Purpose-built overland trucks allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. This means they don't have air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot.

  • The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land.

  • This is a participatory camping trip, so team spirit is key. You'll be helping out with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning.

  • As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
