Luxurious Travel of Zimbabwe and Botswana|
Zambezi National Park:
Known for the famous Victoria Falls, Victoria Falls town lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls with South Africa wildlife tours
. It is a lovely tourist town which is easy to explore on foot and which offers a wide range of activities from the challenge of white water rafting and bungi jumping, to the awe-inspiring elephant back safaris and sunset cruises. The Victoria Falls are one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth - a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar and creates a magnificent spray of water that can be seen for miles - hence the local name 'mosi oa tunya' meaning 'the smoke that thunders'.
Arrive at the lodge and check in. Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park. The luxury tented lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, just minutes from the Victoria Falls. Each en suite tent has been decorated in earthy hues and offers a freestanding bath, sitting area, indoor and outdoor shower and a private viewing deck where one can sit and watch the exceptional wildlife. Some of Africa's most amazing animals are right on the doorstep. Elephants, hippo, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala and even the occasional big cat can be viewed in the park Overnight at Victoria Falls River Lodge.
Zambezi National Park - Chobe National Park:
After a leisurely morning breakfast, you will be transferred from Victoria Falls to Kasane Airport by road and light aircraft to Savute Elephant Camp, in Chobe National Park where you will stay for 2 nights.
Chobe National Park, in northern Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. By size, it is the third largest park of the country and is the most diverse. It is also the country's first national park. This wildlife sanctuary also boasts the largest elephant population in Africa. You can see 4 of the Big 5 in Chobe: elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo - but not (or rarely) rhino.
The Savute area offers a harsh and desert-like landscape in the dry season when the wildlife is supported by the now flowing Savute channel. This contrasts dramatically with the rainy season where the seasonal pans fill with water and the Savute Marsh and surrounds are covered with lush green vegetation that attracts an annual migration of zebra and wildebeest, as well as an abundance of birdlife. The Savute Marsh has been the stage for many of the most dramatic wildlife documentaries in Africa. The wide open country and particularly strong prides of lion and hyena clans make for dramatic wildlife interaction and excellent viewing opportunities. The marsh is prime cheetah country and it is not unusual to see wild dog hunting in the Savute in the wet season.
The Savute Elephant Camp lies in the heart of the Chobe National Park, perched on the banks of the Savute Channel. This luxurious lodge consists of twelve twin-bedded canvas tents, well shaded under thatch and air-conditioned which offer respite from the warmer temperatures and feature lavishly appointed en-suite bathrooms and dressing areas by South Africa safari tours
. They also have private viewing decks and comfortable outdoor lounges overlooking. Adjacent waterhole just metres away offer a bird’s eye view of elephant in their natural habitat Overnight at Savute Elephant Camp.Khwai, Moremi Game Reserve:
Following the morning activity, you will be transferred by a light aircraft to Khwai River Lodge where you will stay for 2 nights. Moremi Game Reserve is a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary, encompassing the Okavango Delta. The reserve is un-fenced and its boundaries are defined naturally by river systems. The vegetation is varied, with dry land complemented by permanent and seasonal swamplands, resulting in an excellent diversity of both wildlife and birdlife. Khwai is renowned for its large concentrations of mammals and is ideal as an year round destination for wildlife and predators can regularly be seen in the area.
Khwai River Lodge, situated in the Khwai Concession, overlooks the vast Khwai River floodplains across to the Moremi Game Reserve. The exceptional location of Khwai makes it a regular host to elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard, cheetah and wild dogs. All luxury tented rooms are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. The tent interiors are luxuriously appointed with such comforts as an en suite bathroom, fully stocked mini bar, a four-poster bed complete with mosquito netting, as well as discreet air conditioning Overnight at Khwai River Lodge.
The Okavango Delta is one of the world's largest inland deltas situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world - the Kalahari basin with South Africa tourism
. This oasis in the middle of the desert is a rich yet fragile ecosystem, providing a life source for an incredible variety of wildlife. A wealth of species have adapted to the contrasting conditions created by living in the harsh Kalahari desert. The Xaxaba area is one of the Delta's most pristine natural locations, a region of myriad waterways, palm-tree covered islands and vast flood plains.
Situated on this island of Xaxaba, overlooking a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the delta and surrounded by llala Palms, is the paradise called Eagle Island Camp. The Eagle Island Lodge has twelve luxury tents housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. The tent interiors have an en suite bathroom, four-poster beds complete with mosquito netting as well as discreet air conditioning Overnight at Eagle Island Camp.

Mount Kailash Tour – A Journey Of A Lifetime|
Located in the far west of Tibet, Mt Kailash is one of the holiest places in Tibetan Buddhism, and the destination for millions of devotes every year that comes to walk the Kora around the mountain. Though this trek is one of the most demanding in Tibet, but it is also the most popular among tourists.
There’re a host of things to see & do when you are in this region. Here is what your mount kailash tour package should include:
Mt Kailash Kora:
The Kora is something that it’d be a big miss to miss out on. Although the trek is tough and demanding, it can be incredibily satisfying once you’ve completed it. And there’re sights you wouldn’t want to miss out on the way around the mountain. Starting from Darchen, village, the kora follows the pilgrim’s tracks towards Mt. Kailash to the north.
On the way to Mount Kailash kora, there’s a chance to explore a real, moving Kangkyam Glacier falls from the north face of Mount Kailash. At the tongue of the glacier, one can enjoy exceptional sights of the sheer north face of Mount Kailash.
Placed to the northwest of Mount Kailash are the Tirthapura monastery & its hot springs. Positioned on the reservoirs of the Sutlej River, it’s a renowned place for devotees to come after they’ve finished the kora. They take a dip in the hot springs to relax their body, and then move to the monastery to witness the stone footprints of Guru Rinpoche that are preserved in the prayer hall.
Mansarovar & Rakshastal:
Just south of the Mount Kailash are the 2 holy lakes: Rakshastal and Mansarovar. The lakes, lying close to another, couldn’t be more different. Mansarovar, to the east, is a freshwater lake, with exceedingly rounded seashore. In opposite, Rakshastal is a saltwater lake, with no aquatic plants of fish. Hemispherical shaped, like the moon, it contrasts the spherica “sun” shape of Mansarovar so much that Tibetans call them “brightness & darkness”. The lakes are joined by a small river, which permits the fresh water of Mansarovar to seep into the salty Rakshastal. The sacred waters of Lake Mansarovar are assumed to ease pilgrims of their sins when drank or bathed in. This is probably why kailash manasarovar tour is quite popular among the devotees.
Last but not the least; you should be physically fit to witness all these above-mentioned highlights. Best of luck!
