All Inclusive Overland Tour

6 Day Maun to Victoria Falls Overland Tour

Join the Maun to Victoria Falls Overland Tour, traversing one of the last true wilderness conversations in the world, the Okavango Delta, as well as Chobe National Park and the majestic Victoria Falls.

*The Maun to Victoria Falls Overland Tour is available in camping and accommodated variations.

Enjoy a journey through Botswana on our Maun to Victoria Falls Overland Tour and see all the amazing highlights. Leaving Maun, we set off for the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometers. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. Polers guide your mokoros through the waterways and nature walks will fill your days.

We make our way to Chobe National Park where we will spend the afternoon viewing game from the comfort of a river boat. Chobe National Park is undoubtedly the country’s most beautiful and popular nature and game reserve. It has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, making it an ideal location for African safaris and its the third largest park in Botswana, after the Central Kalahari game Reserve and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

After this we make our way to Victoria Falls where you can view the largest sheet of falling water in the world or partake in a myriad of activities on offer.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Cross the water-channels of the Okavango Delta by mokoro
  • Search for the Big 5 in the Moremi Game Reserve
  • Enjoy a game cruise on the Chobe River
  • Free time in Victoria Falls to join in on the many activities on offer

Day 1 Okavango Delta
The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons, is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station (approximately 1 hour transfer) where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the mooring station. While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be encountered in this pristine wilderness area including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra. Those guests who have pre-purchased the 2-night package – will be flown into the Delta this morning and will re-join the group on the morning of day 6. Please speak to your consultant for a copy of the programme for your Okavango Delta Excursion.

Child Policy on Tour on Overland Tours
We do accept children on our tours and for 2020
The following age policies will apply:
8 Years: No children under 8 years of age
8 –9 Years: Children between the ages of 8 –9 years will be accepted to travel on a request basis only.
10 –15 Years: Tours will accept a maximum of four children between the ages of 10 to 15 years on any tour without requesting permission from clients. If more children want to join a tour once the maximum has been reached, this will be allowed on a request basis.
17 –18 Years: Guests of this age may travel with us with a letter of permission from their guardian; they do not require a parent to travel with them.
Any traveler between the ages of 8 –16 must be accompanied by a parent, unless specific authorization had been obtained from Getaway Africa.
Due to our alcohol laws in South Africa –No children under the age of 18 are permitted to partake in activities involving wine tasting.
Age restrictions may apply to certain items listed in the respective tour activities. It is important that you are aware of these restrictions prior to confirming children on tour.

Travelers over 65 yrs of age
65+ Years: Guests 65 and older will be required to complete a medical questionnaire and return to us before we will be able to confirm their participation in the tour.

Accommodation on tour
We have done all that we can to keep our fantastic low prices on these tours so the accommodation is not luxury but you can expect 2 –3 star twin / double accommodation and the majority of it is en-suite. In some places, we also make use of permanent safari tents which are considered "accommodation". We have selected accommodation that is in line with the areas we visit so there is a good variety. It is important to note that general accommodation standards are higher in Southern Africa than they are in East Africa. Please bring along your own towel as these are not always provided.

Single Travelers
If you are interested to share a room with the same-sex guest, we will charge you the single supplement upfront and if successful in pairing you up, will refund your single supplement upon completion of the tour.

Medical Insurance
Medical insurance is compulsory and you will be asked for your policy number before embarking on tour. Please make sure that your travel and medical insurance covers cancellation as well as being airlifted in case of a serious illness or injury as our tours often travel a long way from good hospital facilities. If credit card insurance is taken out, this often does not provide sufficient cover therefore a separate travel insurance policy is recommended

Pre/Post tour Accommodation and Transfers, and Onward Travel
We are more than happy to assist with booking accommodation and transfers for you before and after your tour. The properties that we use are generally at the tour departure point and we offer this service to make life easier for you. We offer a good value for money transit from Vic-Falls to Johannesburg which you can add to your tour.

Do not book your onward travel or flights on the day your tour is scheduled to end (unless the last day of tour does not involve any traveling and ends after breakfast). We could be running late for a number of reasons. This also puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on your fellow travelers and guides and turns the last day of tour into a rush. Getaway Africa will not be held accountable if you have booked flights out on the last day of tour and you are not able to get to the airport on time.

Visas - very important!
As visa requirements vary considerably depending on your nationality, please contact the various embassies or visa service agencies to re-check visa requirements at least four weeks prior to departing for your tour. Please note that visas are the responsibility of the traveler and that Getaway Africa will not be held responsible for clients being denied entry should they not be in the possession of the relevant visas.

Should the adventure tour you are joining be re-entering a country, be sure to have a multiple entry visa that enables you to re-enter the country.

Arranging VISAS is not our specialty and due to this we do not always have the most updated information as these regulations change regularly. We suggest that you contact Relocation Online who will be able to provide accurate information or alternatively check with the local embassy. www.relocation-online.com

Traveling in our purpose built Overland Trucks
The transportation on tour is a major component of all our tours. These tours are road trips and incorporate long drives, bumpy roads and possible mechanical problems, also, digging your truck out of mud is sometimes a considered a highlight.

We have the newest and most modern fleet around. While there are similarities between our vehicles, our camping/accommodated trucks have 24 seats and additional packing space for camping equipment. Ideal for small or large groups, we also have a club area, ideal for playing cards or socializing. Our camping and accommodated tours are not city to city coach liner trip and there is no air-conditioning or toilets on these trucks

Participation and Interaction, what's expected of you
Although we do most of the work, the nature of these tours is not that of a beach holiday. A little assistance from the group can make a real difference as it means that the guides have more time for you and more time to make the tour amazing so getting involved definitely enhances the tour experience. This is an adventure, not a holiday.

All camping & accommodated overland tours are limited participation tours and what we would like your assistance with is:

  • Assist with washing up duties
  • Offer your help with the food preparation if time is pressing
  • Loading and unloading the truck
  • Loading and unloading your own bag
  • Help keeping the truck and cooler box clean (it is your home after all for the next days and weeks)
  • Help setting up camp
  • Putting up and taking down your tent. The first time is a challenge, thereafter it’s a breeze!

Your tent and camping equipment and kitchen utensils are provided on your tour so please take care of our equipment, as anything broken or lost on tour cannot be easily replaced.Our guides do all the cooking, however you are welcome to ask the guides if you are keen to share your culinary skills with the group.
