Saint Louis Zoo designed especially for adventurous families.

Your journey begins with a visit to Victoria Falls, one of the wonders of the world, best viewed from Zimbabwe on the shores of the Zambezi River. The Falls, said to be the largest in the world, thunder day and night to create a garden oasis filled with fantastic wildlife. This experience is a photographer’s delight, with a multitude of views of the falls, the powerful river and amazing African birds and mammals.

Your adventure continues in Botswana, a fabulously wild and relatively

unpopulated country, dominated by the Kalahari desert, its seasonal water sources and its vast salt pans. From the Savute marshes, and the lush, riverine ecosystem of Chobe, to Okavango’s palm tree islets, and the desolation of the Nxai Pan, this is a land of contrasts. Savannah grasslands and forest glades chain-linked by ox-bow river loops, lily ponds and winding watercourses and heat-seared salt pans stretching to the horizon provide habitat for an amazing diversity of animal life.

The Chobe National Park is famous for the multitude of elephants that concentrate on the Chobe River during the dry season – renowned to be Africa’s greatest concentration of elephants. Chobe, the second largest national park in Botswana, hosts two of Africa’s legendary safari areas, Savuti and the Chobe River. From May thru November, when the seasonal waterholes out in the

endless mopane woodlands to the south become dry, the game

migrates in enormous numbers onto this waterfront area. The sheer quantity of elephants in particular is staggering and the absolute highlight is to sit in a boat and watch the herds snorkelling their way across the river to the open swamps to the north.

The Okavango Delta is Botswana’s most famous and popular safari destination. It is a unique wetland system - one of the largest inland deltas in the world. An Okavango Delta safari offers a diversity of wildlife which includes predators, antelope, birds and fish. From the air, the rich mosaic of land and water looks like a perfectly constructed puzzle, but it is on the spectacular waterways, that you will discover why so many safari enthusiasts make the Okavango Delta a type of annual pilgrimage. Originating in the distant highlands of Angola, the Okavango floodwater actually arrives into the delta during the dry season, May through Oct, causing prodigious quantities of game to migrate inwards from the otherwise parched Kalahari Desert. At this time of year, there is no better game viewing in Africa. Almost all of Okavango is divided into vast private concessions, where visitor numbers are strictly limited and the camps can generally only be accessed by light aircraft.

optional extension to Nxai Pan, you are in for a real treat. The desert-like environment of Nxai Pan makes for a stark contrast with the waterworld of the Okavango Delta. Your adventure will take full advantage of all the diversity of landscape and wildlife this region of Africa has to offer.

Trip Activity Level: This is an easy trip. There will be occasional walking at camps with optional ranger-led treks, but overall no physically taxing activity. Most wildlife viewing will take place from the comfort of a vehicle or small boat.

Escorted by Alice Seyfried,

Fred Saigh Curator of the Children’s Zoo Director, Center for Conservation in Forest Park.

To the north of the Okavango Delta lies the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, a 125,000 hectares area of pristine wilderness and Botswana’s most least known wildlife area. Fed by the Kwando River, the Linyanti Swamp is the heart of the reserve and is the attraction for the tens of thousands of elephants, one of Africa’s largest elephant populations, and other animals that concentrate during the dry season. Linyanti is an absolutely superb safari area, with dry gameviewing on a par with that of nearby Okavango. The Linyanti River and marshes are complemented by the contrasting dry woodlands inland. Lagoons and rivers abound with papyrus and phragmites grasses lining the shorelines. There are many varied habitats within the Linyanti, including marshes, waterways, riverine forests, dry woodlands and open grasslands thus maximizing the diversity of all kinds of animals.

MONDAY, AUGUST 22 Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Today’s highlight will be a morning tour of Victoria Falls. Designated a protected World Heritage Site, it is one of the few waterfalls in the world where one can witness up close the spectacular sight of over 550 million litres (145 million gallons) of water barreling down a 2/5 km (1.5 mile) wide precipice. The Victoria Falls are situated on the Zambezi River, which flows between Zimbabwe and Zambia, but Zimbabwe has always been the most popular access point. The force of the water sends a spray up into the air that can be seen from a 30 km (19 mile) distance. Due to its formation, excellent viewing of the Falls is possible from many angles, making for great photographic opportunities. An afternoon game drive will feature the amazing diversity of wildlife found on the shores of the Zambezi. After a warm day in the sun and the exhilaration of our game drive, a traditional Boma dinner, a delicious spread cooked on a big open fire under the stars, is the perfect end to our day.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23 AND WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24 Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Chobe National Park, Botswana

Transfer by vehicle this morning to the Chobe National Park, the second largest national park in Botswana covering some 11,700 square kilometers or just over 4,500 square miles. Chobe has some of the largest concentrations of game found on the Africa continent, including over 120,000 elephants. The park is surprisingly diverse, as it has the perennial Chobe River as its northern border, and it touches the Linyanti marshes to the west, is home to the well-known Savute Channel and connects with the Moremi Wildlife Reserve to the southwest.

You will stay at the Chobe Game Lodge, the only property in the northern section of Chobe National Park. Located a mere 100 kilometers (62 miles) west of Victoria Falls, in the riverine woodlands of the Chobe National Park, the luxurious

Chobe Game Lodge overlooks the perennial Chobe River

and Caprivi floodplains. Chobe’s wildlife is both abundant and diverse. It is home to possibly the largest concentration of elephant in Africa, and during the dry season, these herds along with large herds of buffalo, congregate along the fertile flood plains of the Chobe River. Guests are also likely to have excellent sightings of lion, wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable and roan antelope.

Guests will enjoy their meals at the terrace restaurant, overlooking the Chobe River or in the nearby Boma, an outside reed-walled eating area underneath large mahogany trees on the banks of the Chobe River. Facilities at the lodge include a well-stocked curio shop and wildlife reference library. The stylish Thwene bar overlooks the floodplain for

wildlife viewing. Outdoor terraces include seating and a large swimming pool. Broadband Internet access is available for guest use.

Safari activities at Chobe Game Lodge are tailored to suit individual requirements. Game drives are conducted in open four-wheel-drive vehicles, normally early mornings and late afternoons under the leadership of qualified guides. Excursions on the Chobe River are conducted in small, shallow draft and highly maneuverable boats, perfect for morning or sunset cruises. Guests can also enjoy the sunrise and sunset cruises aboard the Mosi-oa-Tunya river boat, which often provides spectacular wildlife viewing and is an excellent setting for enjoying the African sunset. Stargazing, garden and river walks as well as walking safaris in the nearby Kasane forests are available for interested guests. A gym, beauty and spa treatments and business center are also available for guest use.

Chobe Game Lodge B,L,D

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25 AND FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 Chobe/Northern Okavango Delta

This morning depart Chobe from the airport at Kasane via light aircraft to Kwara Camp, operated by Kwando Safaris.

Kwara Camp is set overlooking a secluded lagoon in the

northern Okavango Delta. This region offers a contrasting experience, as its location allows access to the permanent waterways of the Delta as well as expansive dry land areas, admired for their quality game viewing. Kwara Camp accommodates a maximum of 16 guests in eight traditionally styled tents on raised decks, each offering superb views of the lagoon. Towering African ebony and mangosteen trees ensure that the camp is always cool while the hundreds of birds add to the feeling of serenity in one of the Okavango’s best kept secrets.

Kwara Camp offers, within the exclusive concession in which

it is located, a wide variety of activities. In addition to game drives, both day and night, the camp offers game walks and mokoro trips, as well as power boating and fishing (spinning equipment is provided but fly fisherman need to bring their own equipment). You will have two full days to make your choices and enjoy the best that Kwara Camp has to offer.

The daily safari routine usually involves an early morning wake up call, and a gathering around the fireside for piping hot tea and coffee, a bowl of sumptuous porridge and freshly baked muffins. As well as the clean early morning air and dazzling sun rise, an early departure greatly increases the chances of unusual sightings, as the majority of mammals are active at the beginning and end of the day when temperatures are lower.

Game drives are undertaken in custom designed Toyota game viewing vehicles seating no more than six guests at a time in two rows of three. The use of only two rows ensures that guests are never so far from the front of the vehicle that they are unable to hear the guide or tracker’s interpretation, even while driving. Guests are guided by a two person team of professional guide and tracker - a special feature of the Kwando Safaris wildlife experience. The two person team enables the guide to communicate points of interest and the complex interrelations that exist throughout the natural world, while the tracker ensures no sightings or tracks are missed.

The evening/night drives are a Kwando Safaris specialty. The drive starts in the late afternoon as the sun’s rays are dipping to the west and the day’s heat is declining. After a leisurely pause for the traditional sundowner, and as the African day is transformed into a soft colorful evening canvas, the night drive begins. The mystery unfolds as the creatures of the night, especially the predators, are revealed by spotlight, often unexpectedly.

Walking in Africa’s wild areas is the only way to truly appreciate the natural environment. While game viewing from a vehicle allows one to see more animals as you traverse much greater distances and get much closer to animals safely, there is nothing as awe inspiring and humbling as observing wild animals on foot. Many smaller species of plants and insects, tracks and signs are all easily missed when in a vehicle. The slow pace of the walk and interpretative skills of your guide will open your eyes to a new and fascinating world.

Game walks are not hikes; they are slow comfortable strolls meant to provide you with a chance to experience the wilderness at a natural pace. Any walk can be combined

with a game drive or mokoro and the length of walk can be adjusted to suit your personal desires or level of fitness. The boat experience is a soothing tonic, a contrast to the vigorous efforts of searching for mammals from a vehicle or on foot. Sit back and while away the hours, stopping to gaze at a multitude of spectacular birds and bathing elephants and enjoy the vistas of the river systems. However, don’t be surprised should the peace be shattered by the snort of a territorial hippo warning the boat of his presence! Double-decker boats are used to provide a better vantage point and offer a wonderful position to enjoy the waterways and their varied inhabitants.

The mokoro or traditional dugout canoe is surely the

definitive Okavango Delta experience. The complete stillness of an early morning, disturbed only by the sound of the water dripping from the ‘ngashe’ (wooden pole used to move the canoe), and the eerie call of the fish eagle echoing across the water, is a sublime experience. The mokoro was designed to move across areas with low water levels by the indigenous peoples who inhabited the Delta and who explored the waterways and floodplains in search of food. Today, these same mokoro provide an opportunity to glide through this varied and unique habitat using the traditional skills handed down through the generations.

The Okavango is recognised as an excellent fishing destination for both fly fishing and traditional spin fishing. However, not many people are aware of the amazing fishing that can also be experienced on the Kwando River. Species that are targeted by sports fisherman are several tilapia (bream) species (including the olive bream or nembwe, red breasted tilapia, purple faced largemouth and three spot tilapia), sharp tooth catfish, African pike and the mighty tiger fish.

Kwara Camp B,L,D

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27 AND SUNDAY, AUGUST 28 Northern Okavango Delta/Linyanti Marshes

Depart by charter flight from Kwara Camp to arrive at Kwando’s Lebala Camp. Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’ in Setswana and the scenery is dominated by vast plains with scattered palms and tree islands backed by wooded savannahs. This wild expanse contrasts with the casual understated elegance and luxury of the camp itself. Lebala Camp is situated in the south of the Kwando concession, adjacent to the head waters of the Linyanti marshes that form the boundary between Botswana and Namibia. The perennial and southerly flowing Kwando River disappears into the vast marshland before emerging as the Linyanti River. The triangle formed by this vast wetland is home to the Mamili National Park in Namibia.

The camp itself is comprised of eight custom designed tents, with unique mosquito net walls, allowing an unobstructed flow of cooling breezes and stunning views. Each spacious tent is built on a raised teak viewing deck, laid out with maximum comfort and privacy in mind. The tents have

(5)

an entrance foyer with a reading and writing area, en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs, washbasins, flush toilets and luxurious double outside showers with hot and cold running water. Each secluded tent is set back among the trees and has its own sundeck. The endless vistas from the large windows and deck across the vast plains, make Lebala Camp one of the finest wilderness camps in Africa.

The wetlands and flood plains around Lebala Camp offer a wonderful variety of wildlife with excellent sightings of elephant, hippo, lechwe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, kudu, tsessebe, roan, sable, buffalo and the ever present predators: wild dog, lion, cheetah and hyena.

After dark, spotlights are switched on and the game drives expose our guests to nocturnal sightings of rare and elusive species such as leopard, Selous mongoose, spotted genet and aardwolf. Nocturnal bird species that are encountered include Natal nightjar, pennant winged nightjar and a large variety of owls.

Mouth-watering fare is prepared by our chefs and served in the open-sided dining room. After dinner there is a wonderful campfire around which to sip a coffee or enjoy a nightcap. As you drift off to sleep, you will often hear hippo grazing out of water near your tent. In the warmer months, feel free to take a refreshing swim in the Lebala Camp pool. Lebala has a staff complement of 22 to cater to our guests. The camp balances understated elegance with untamed Africa to perfection.

Lebala Camp B,L,D

MONDAY, AUGUST 29 AND TUESDAY, AUGUST 30 Linyanti Marshes/Maun/Gabarone/Johannesburg/ Washington, DC/ St. Louis

Say good-bye to the wilds of Botswana as you begin your journey home from Africa. Your morning charter flight from Lebala Camp takes you to Maun, Botswana. Transfer to your flight to Johannesburg, South Africa with a stop in Gaborone. Fly Johannesburg to Washington, DC and then on to St. Louis.

OPTIONAL ExTENSION:

MONDAY, AUGUST 29

Linyanti Marshes/Maun/Nxai Pan

Fly to Maun and transfer to your flight to Nxai Pan. The Nxai Pans were once part of a great lake that covered central Botswana-which included the Okavango Delta, Makgadikgadi and Lake Ngami. The pan is a fossil lakebed about 40 square kilometers (about 25 square miles) in size. The landscape is covered by grassland and dotted with clusters of umbrella acacia trees and mopane woodlands in the north. During the rains from November to April the pans become covered in

grass which is the landscape very similar to the Kalahari.

Nxai Pan Camp is located on the western edge of the fossil

pan from which the camp takes its name. The camp faces east over the open grasslands of the pans and accommodates a maximum of eighteen guests in thatched units specially designed to provide a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the year, when seasonal temperatures can fluctuate from below freezing to well over 45 degrees Celsius (over 113°F). Excellent game viewing is possible from the comfort of your rooms as the water hole in front of the camp draws a multitude of mammal species. You will spend the next three days at Nxai Pan Camp.

Nxai Pan Camp B,L,D

TUESDAY, AUGUST 30 AND WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31 Nxai Pan

By July virtually all of the migratory species should have left Nxai Pan, travelling north and west towards more reliable sources of water. Game viewing at this time of year therefore concentrates on the relatively sparse resident game and the struggle for survival in the arid desert surroundings, which should provide sufficient interest for more experienced safari visitors.

Activities offered at Nxai Pan are game drives, day trips to the famous Baines’ Baobabs and Khama Khama Pan, star gazing, as well as nature walks with Bushman trackers.

Nxai Pan Camp B,L,D

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 AND FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 Nxai Pan/Maun/Gabarone/Johannesburg/Washington DC/St. Louis

Depart this morning from Botswana as you fly from Nxai Pan to Maun by light aircraft. Depart Maun to Gabarone and then to Johannesburg. Settle into your flight from Johannesburg to Washington, DC and then on to St. Louis.
