Extraordinary Journeys Offers Exclusive Itinerary Through Africa’s Most Iconic Waterways

September 14, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Leading Safari operator, Extraordinary Journeys, announces its latest exclusive itinerary: Southern African Waters, a week-long exploration of the breathtaking waterways in Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the Zambezi River in Zambia.

The journey will begin in the iconic Okavango Delta, Botswana’s “crown jewel,” which offers incredible wildlife concentrations and unexpected interactions.  For three days, visitors will find themselves in the Moremi Game Reserve among lush flood plains, leadwood and mopane woodlands that define this region and help create a sense of total exclusivity. Travelers will explore the area while based at Khwai Tented Camp, a rustic-yet-modern camp that serves as one of Botswana’s finest examples of sustainable, eco-friendly, and community-driven hospitality.

Alternatively, travelers can opt to spend the first three days of their Botswana journey in the Linyanti Bush Camp, on the border of Chobe National Park.  Located along the Linyanti River and its marshlands, the only source of water in the dry months, Linyanti Bush Camp ensures exceptional year-round wildlife encounters on the ground (on foot and in 4 X 4 open vehicles) and in the water (in mokoro canoes poled by local fishermen). Like Khwai Tented Camp, Linyanti Bush Camp is located on a private concession, enabling both properties to offer night game drives and walking safaris, which are not allowed in National Parks or Game Reserves.

After viewing Botswana’s big game (lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo, and giraffe), guests will travel by light aircraft to Zambia, where they will spend three nights at Thorntree River Lodge. Located on the banks of the Zambezi River, a short distance from the breathtaking Victoria Falls, travelers will find themselves away from the crowds, but close to local experiences, like village visits, which offer a unique glimpse into traditional Zambian culture. Taking advantage of its setting, Thorntree River Lodge’s river-facing infinity pool and sunset river cruises will give guests a chance to take in unique Zambezi River views.

Exclusively for Extraordinary Journeys guests, the Southern African Waters itinerary includes complimentary helicopter flights above the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, as well as complimentary spa treatments at Thorntree River Lodge.

Extraordinary Journey’s Southern African Waters Safari starts at $3,030.00 per person sharing.
