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.

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.

Mahango Afternoon Game Drive(o)
 -Breakfast

 -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: D6:Mohango Park GD PM)

D7: Divundu - Kongola
Popa Falls(n) • Bwabwata National Park(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 Rundu
 -Observe the balance between humans and nature at the Bwabwata National Park. This area is also known as ‘the people’s park’ as it supports both wildlife and human populations that work together in a mutually beneficial manner, as the local Caprivian community is afforded employment opportunities that in turn help protect Namibian wildlife. The park extends from the Okavango River in the west of Namibia to the Kwando River in the east and is abundant in wildlife including several thousand elephant, buffalo, hippo, various antelope, lion and leopard, while the woodlands are dominated by beautiful African trees such as wild seringa, copalwood and Zambezi teak. Good game viewing is possible around watering holes along the Kwando River, particularly in the drier months as well as Horseshoe, a large perennial oxbow lake with picturesque white-sand beaches. Rare species in the park include red lechwe and sitatunga antelope. (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: D7:Kwando Boat Cruise)

Chobe National Park(n) • Boat trip(o)
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Chobe
 -Chobe National Park is one of the largest in Botswana, famed not only for the highest concentration of elephants found anywhere in Africa but also for having the densest population of game on the continent. This, together with its reputation of offering superb wildlife viewing all year round, makes it a highly popular travel destination. The park lies along the Chobe River and is comprised of four distinct ecosystem – the lush plains and forests of the Chobe river front attracting elephant and vast herds of buffalo; the rich grasslands and savannahs of the Savuti Marsh; the Linyanti Swamps, renowned for prowling predators and large herds of game; and the hot and dry hinterland of Nogatsaa and Tchinga, holding water well into the dry season and attracting a profusion of game between August and October. A high density of predators and the occurrence of many rare antelope species rounds off this spectacular game park. (Not included)

 -Meet and greet at Victoria Falls Airport. Our guide will be waiting for you in the arrival hall carrying a branded sign board.
 -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)
 -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. (Optional rates: D10:Sunset Cruise)

D11: Victoria Falls
Falls: Zimbabwe Side(o) • Transfer
 -Breakfast
 -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.
