Arrive at Johannesburg on the first morning, where you will remain in transit for the connecting Air Botswana flight to Kasane.  When you touch down in Kasane our staff will be on hand to transfer you to your Lodge for your first night’s stay in Botswana at Chobe Chilwero Game Lodge. You will have time to settle in and freshen up before lunchis served and you then depart for your first game viewing activity. This will either be a game viewing cruise on the Chobe River or a game drive into the Chobe National Park. Return for dinner at the Lodge, where you will stay on full board for 2 nights.

The next morning you will have another game viewing activity before breakfast. You have the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy the pool and try some treatments in the tree top spa, before lunch and the afternoon game viewing activity.

The following day will have the same routine but after breakfast you will depart for Kasane airport where you will take a short flight to the Savute Safari Lodge. This stylish property overlooks a large floodlit waterhole where you can watch animals from the deck or from your room. The Savute Reserve is renowned for its lion population.  Your 2 night stay will be on full board with drinks included.

From Savute you will be flown into the heart of the Okavango Delta to a beautiful camp on the lagoon, Xugana Island Camp. Set on a large lagoon, this isolated Lodge has only 8 rooms. Each room overlooks the water and has a small private deck. From Xugana you can enjoy motorised and mokoro(canoe) safaris as well as walking safaris on nearby islands. In the evening dinner is served on the patio overlooking the lagoon and is followed by drinks around the fire, seronaded by the nearby hippos! You will spend 2 nights at Xugana on full board with drinks included.  Your days will consist of 2 game viewing activities and the rest of the day to relax by the pool or around the Lodge.

From Xugana you will be flown the short hop back to Maun for your return flight to Johannesburg. From Johannesburg you will catch the afternoon flight onto Mauritius.You will be met at Mauritius airport and transferred to your hotel ‘The Residence’ where you will spend the next 6 nights on an all inclusive basis.

The Residence Mauritius is considered as one of the jewels of the international hotel scene. Its mile-long beach of immaculate white sand fringed by tropical gardens; its refined and nostalgic decor inspired by turn-of-the-century plantation houses; its butler service; its exotic and delicate cuisine... are just some of the ingredients which have contributed to the hotel's success.

 The hotel has 3 restaurants to choose from as well as a bar, a spa and a swimming pool. There is a watersports centre offering sailing, snorkelling and scuba diving amongst other activities. 

On your final day return to the airport for your flight home.
