Wilds of Botswana & Victoria Falls

11 Day Package from Johannesburg to Johannesburg

Smoking…we all know it’s bad for you. But what about “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-oa-Tunya,” which is what the locals call Victoria Falls? Seeing them will delight you and will most assuredly be good for you. And no one brings you Victoria Falls like Monograms! Victoria Falls is not the only place you’ll visit on this 11-day vacation. You’ll also go on safari in some of Botswana’s most famous game reserves and national parks. We’ve made it easy for you by arranging your choice of accommodations, most of your meals, game drives, and more. And on safari, we've arranged for you to have experienced Rangers and game trackers with you. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®—someone who is there to help make sure your vacation runs smoothly—in both Johannesburg & Victoria Falls.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Johannesburg, where we can pick you up at the airport and escort you to your hotel. The next day, after an included breakfast, you'll fly to Botswana and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in southern Africa. Here, you will have three game drives in a 4-wheel-drive safari vehicle. Be on the lookout for cheetah, leopard, springbok, gemsbok, the rare brown hyena, and the famed black-maned Kalahari lion. We've also arranged for you to have a guided walk with San Bushmen to learn about their intriguing culture, survival and hunting skills, and extensive knowledge of desert animal and plant life.

Then, it’s off to the famed Okavango Delta. This area features various ecosystems—wetlands, mopane forest, flood plains, and dry savannah woodland—making it ideal for your three game activities here. Have your camera ready for cheetah, hyena, impala, Cape buffalo, and more. We’ll also take you to Chobe National Park, which features some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. You'll have three game activities here consisting of game drives and boat excursions. You may see giraffe, lion, and huge herds of elephant, which are said to be the largest elephants on Earth.

Finally, we will transfer you to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world. Your Local Host in Victoria Falls will help you get settled and feel right at home. We've arranged for you to have a private, guided walk of Victoria Falls, so you can learn the history of the falls and hear about the surrounding flora and fauna. Photos do not do justice to these awe-inspiring falls; you must experience them in person!

And did we mention we've included a cruise on the Zambezi River, where you'll have an opportunity to take photographs of the wildlife—such as hippos, crocodiles, and elephants—and a stunning Africa sunset?

Between the game drives we've included, the hotels and lodges we’ve booked, and the guides and transportation we've arranged, all you have to do is make sure you remember your camera! We've taken care of the rest. Between the time saved, the hassles taken care of regarding where to go and how to get from one destination to the next, and even having locals there to help you spot the game, you've got yourself an unbeatable vacation!
