Situated 44 km outside Otjiwarango, the CCF Centre was founded by Dr Laurie Marker and is the world's leading organisation dedicated to saving the cheetah from extinction. Loss of habitat, poaching and prosecution by farmers has led to the cheetah being the most endangered cat in Africa. The CCF Centre provides in-depth information about the cheetah, and what CCF is doing to ensure the survival of this species for future generations.

Proclaimed a game reserve in 1907, Etosha spreads over 22 270km2 of saline desert, mopane forests and grassy scrublands. The park's most distinctive feature is the Etosha Pan, once a lake and now a massive white, salty depression that fills with pockets of pools after infrequent rains, attracting up to 1-million flamingos which use the pan as a breeding ground. The rain pools, along with approximately 30 waterholes and springs across the reserve, sustain an abundance of wildlife, including 340 bird and 114 mammal species, as well as some rarities like the Damara dik-dik, the black-faced impala and the Egyptian vulture.

Make your way to one of several waterholes between the rest camps of Okaukuejo and Namutoni to spot Etosha's wildlife, including black-faced impala, gemsbok, kudu, zebra and elephant. You may get a glimpse of lion and black rhino among the mopane thickets, the former keeping a vigilant eye on the proceedings at the waterhole (Optional rates: D4:4x4 Etosha Game Drive Morning)
 -Travel to Rundu
 -Admire intricate woodcarvings in Rundu. This town is the capital of the Kavango Region and located along the southern banks of the Okavango River, acting as a gateway to the Caprivi and a link for neighbouring African countries to the port at Walvis Bay. As such, it is a hub of trade and industry and includes a number of amenities such as banks, shops and service stations. The town is also a good place to pick up mementos of your African travels as it features a large open market, and adjacent to that, a woodcarvers market. Here, Namibia's most skilled woodcarvers make and sell their woodwork and other artefacts that are snapped up by visitors and proudly displayed the world over. Slow down to admire the picturesque river frontage of the town that is also known to showcase some spectacular sunset vistas. (Suggestion not included in rates)

D5: Rundu - Divundu (208 km)
Mahango Afternoon Game Drive(o)
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Divundu
 -Note the beauty of the flora and fauna on an afternoon game drive in the Mahango Game Reserve. This unique region sets itself apart from the country’s mostly dry and sandy landscape, showcasing a flowing river, well-fed waterholes, and thickly fronded riverine vegetation. Shaded by statuesque trees such as the Zambezi teak and willowy wild syringa, the reserve’s woodlands are verged by grassy plains that in turn give way to reeds and water grasses that thickly cover the wetlands. Within this habitat numerous species of wildlife can be found, the most common being elephant, warthog and antelope. The many fruit-bearing trees attract both fruit and insect eating birds that mingle with various wetland species in a pretty and tranquil environment. As your afternoon game drive concludes, look out for hippos slowly making their way from the river to graze under an illuminating moon. (Optional rates: D5:Mohango Park GD PM)

D6: Divundu - Kongola (251 km)
Popa Falls(n) • Boat Cruise(o)
 -Breakfast
 -Listen to the cascading of water at Popo Falls. One of the highlights of the western Caprivi is the Popo Falls, a series of beautiful white water rapids that cascade gently and melodically down quartzite ledges. The falls form part of the Okavango River and cover a breadth of over one kilometre before descending down four metres of rocky outcrops into the Okavango riverbed. They are located at the entrance of the Bwabwata National Park, with many campsites gracing their shores and splendid scenic beauty all around. Popo Falls can be accessed by foot and offers a breath of fresh air as well as an opportunity to observe the flora and fauna that thrive in and around the life-giving water. (Suggestion not included in rates)
 -Travel to Kongola
 -Drift along in silent serenity on a boat cruise on the Kwando River. With its origins in the highlands of Angola, the 730 kilometre long Kwando River is the life-blood of the Caprivi region, providing sustenance for local people who pole along its course in traditional dug-out canoes. The river is also a source of food and water for vast herds of elephant and hippo, crocodiles, and large numbers of red lechwe, as well as a haven for upwards of 430 bird species. Rare wattled cranes, slaty egret, Stanley’s bustard and rosy-throated longclaw are but a few of the magnificent species to appreciate as you cruise through the water channels in a flat-bottomed boat. Look out for broken reeds along the river banks as these are signs of recent elephant presence, and there are good opportunities for finding sitatunga, a rarely sighted water-loving antelope. (Optional rates: D6:Boat Cruise)
 -Overnight at the Camp: Camp Kwando (Tented Chalet - Bed and Breakfast)

D7: Kongola
Game Drive(o) • Kwando Cultural Village
 -Breakfast
 -Be captivated by wildlife and unusual landscapes on a game drive. Located just outside the Mudumu National Park and on the banks of the Kwando River, Camp Kwando offers a variety of locations for a game drive. Cruises along the river will introduce you to stunning birdlife, large numbers of elephants and sightings of antelope such as reed buck, lechwe and sitatunga, as well as picturesque riverine scenes. Mudumu displays a remarkable landscape where snaking rivers, marshy reed islands and flat tracts of land without any natural elevation make game viewing relatively easy. Abundant with wildlife, but not frequently visited due to its remote location, the park offers a peaceful and rewarding safari. Game viewing also takes place in Mamili (Nkasa Lupala) National Park, a watery wonderland of wildlife-rich islands, river channels and wetlands home to elephants, lions, crocodiles, several species of antelopes, buffalos and hippos. (Optional rates: D7:Game Drive)
 -Dance with the medicine man at Kwando Cultural Village. This interesting settlement is situated just adjacent to Camp Kwando on the banks of the Kwando River and takes you on a tour of a re-created traditional village. The villagers are mostly staff from Camp Kwando who will give you fascinating insight into ancient traditions that have been fiercely protected by their people over the centuries. The village is built in typical tribal style utilising reeds, mud and other naturally available products. Besides observing the aspects of everyday life you will also be given demonstrations on various tribal fishing and hunting techniques and watch a performance by the local healer, or ‘Medicine Man’, as he employs various dancing methods to ward off illnesses and cure problems.

Accommodation at the lodge is all river facing and is surrounded by lush gardens that themselves are home to an abundance of wildlife such as warthog, squirrel, mongoose, vervet monkeys and fruit bat. Of course with so much wildlife around, game drives rate as a top activity but the camp also offers scenic boat cruises down the Chobe River and sightseeing cruises to Sedudu Island.

11:09-Transfer from Hwange to Victoria Falls
 -Arrival at Victoria Falls, one of the most famous landmarks in the world and visited by thousands of tourists every year, yet the town of the same name remains small and filled with plenty of old-world frontier charm. Victoria Falls town is bright and friendly and a great place to browse craft markets and collect souvenirs of your African travels as you take some time to absorb the atmosphere and pick up a greater sense of the African cultures and the rich history that have shaped the Victoria Falls over time. Wildlife lovers may need to look no further than right in front of them as animals are known to roam the streets with cheeky baboons hanging around in the trees and occasionally even an elephant or two strolling across the road to the nearby Zambezi River. (Suggestion not included in rates)
 -View one of the world’s natural wonders on a visit to the Zimbabwe side of the Victoria Falls. This enormous sheet of falling water was first discovered by David Livingstone in 1855, although it had been known to the local people for much longer than that. It is shared by two countries, Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south. Around two thirds of the falls are located on the Zimbabwe side and this country is also considered to have more classical views of the mains falls with footpaths leading you to breathtaking viewpoints such as Devils Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the very popular Rainbow Falls. The sights from here are considered some of the best on the planet while the sheer force of the tumbling water is a sensory treat as water plunges and tumbles, sending sprays of mist up into the skies.

D13: Victoria Falls
Flight: Falls by helicopter(o) • Township tour(o) • Cruise: Sunset
 -Breakfast
 -Marvel at the wonder of natural forces with a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls. Your 12-minute adventure will get your heart racing and your eyes captivated on the scenes below as you take to the skies and begin your flight over the Zambezi River. This river is the fourth longest in Africa and surrounded by pristine wilderness that is especially beautiful to observe from above, with many islands and channels through which the crystal-clear water winds its way. The Batoka Gorge, lying just below the Victoria Falls, showcases stunning, deep chasms that cut into the earth before you arrive at the highlight of your trip, the falls themselves. This flight is often referred to as ‘the flight of angels’, and as you float through the misty spray and rainbows created by the thundering falls you will feel as if you are indeed in heaven. (Optional rates: D13:Flight: Falls by helicopter)
 -Pick up the friendly vibe of the local Zimbabwean people on a township tour. From your hotel you will be driven to two townships near Victoria Falls town where a large portion of the local community lives. As you walk the streets you will have the opportunity to chat with the people and browse the colourful fruit and vegetable stalls that are scattered all around. From the local grocer to community schools, churches and jovial taverns, you are free to explore and photograph them all as you learn more about the rich cultural and ethnic history of the area. (Optional rates: D13:Township tour)
 -Soak up the beauty of Africa on a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. The immense, calm waters of the Zambezi River lend themselves to leisurely boat cruises amongst the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding wilderness. From your lodge you will be taken to the jetty and begin your sailing journey upstream from the Victoria Falls. As you peacefully drift along the river you can admire the splashes of colour that the setting sun paints in the sky as well as watch the wildlife that congregates along the river banks in the coolness of the evening. Your wondrous cruise is rounded off with aperitifs and snacks served on board the boat.
