From huge herds of migrating herbivores to the interconnected waterways of the Okavango Delta and the awe-inspiring sight of Victoria Falls, this itinerary presents Africa on a scale seldom seen on other safaris. Following the beginning of the rainy season, the safari starts in the usually dry and arid Nxai Pan National Park, now transformed with the arrival of vegetation that blankets the area. After witnessing the migration of zebra, wildbeest and other species, you'll then travel to the Okavango Delta to look for elephants, lions, Cape buffalo, a profusion of birdlife and many other animals that call this sprawling wetland home. Your journey will then end at Victoria Falls - the largest waterfall in the world when taking into account its combined width and height - where you'll be able to partake in a number of activities against the backdrop of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
