Are you into safaris, lush nature and camping under the stars? Then this might be just the trip you're looking for. Travelling from Zimbabwe to Namibia via Botswana with plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities along the way, you'll experience the best of Africa's deltas and falls.

Start your adventure at the majestic Victoria Falls. Spend a day checking out the falls and, if you're brave, opt for a bungee jump from the bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Feeling flush? See the falls from above on a helicopter ride. 

Continue through Botswana where the first stop is Chobe National Park, which is home to the largest concentration of African Elephant on the entire continent. Continue to the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta, where you will get the chance to sleep in the African bush. From Botswana you cross into Namibia, where you end your overland safari in Windhoek. But fear not, the journey is far from over! In Windhoek you'll start two weeks of volunteering at a wildlife project.

Victoria Falls One of the largest waterfalls in the world

Enjoy your first day in Victoria Falls and seize the opportunity to enjoy some awesome optional activities, such as wild water rafting, a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls, a swim in Devil's Pool or canoe ride over the Zambezi River. Or explore the town of Victoria Falls with locals markets and shops. If you're feeling brave, throw yourself from a bridge on one of the world's most adrenaline-pumping bungee jumps!

Kasane & Chobe National Park Time to see some elephants

After Victoria Falls, you will enter Botswana. First stop is the town of Kasane, where you'll be camping for the night. Then there's the option of a game drive through Chobe National Park, which is famous for its huge concentration of African elephant. It's also a great place to see hippos and crocodiles wallowing in the water.

Okavango Delta Camp in the African bush

On the way from Kasane you pass through Gweta before going to Maun, the jumping-off point for the Okavango Delta. Here you will have the opportunity to take an optional sightseeing flight over the delta (for an additional cost). You won't be disappointed by the astounding views! A mokoro canoe ride is included, and you'll glide through the streams before setting up camp in the middle of the delta. Enjoy a sundowner with the group by the campfire before going to bed.

D'Kar The heart of Kalahari

Jump back into the mokoro to leave the Okavango delta. It's time to move on, and your next stop is D'kar - the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Catch a glimpse of how the local San Bushmen adapted to the Kalahari Desert on an optional bushman walk. They will teach you about wilderness survival skills in a place that seems uninhabitable - a unique local experience that will leave an impression, for sure.

Windhoek Time for volunteering

Your overland camping safari ends in Windhoek, where you'll meet a new group of people at the Namibia Wildlife Rescue for two weeks of volunteering. This project strives to rescue injured or orphaned animals, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals, warthogs, antelope and baboons, as well as a host of birds, smaller African mammals and farmyard animals.

Spend at least two weeks working alongside volunteers from all over the world. Return flights back to the UK are included in this suggested itinerary, but you can opt to stay longer at the volunteer project. Or continue you onto South Africa for more safari adventures.
