Details: Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls are approximately 1.6 km wide with a maximum drop of 128 m. They are situated in the Zambezi River on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. They are the widest and most spectacular falls in the world, formed as the Zambezi River drops from a relatively flat plain into a narrow chasm about 120 m wide in a fracture zone in the earth's crust. Numerous islets at the crest of the falls divide the water to form a series of falls. The thick mist and huge roar produced are perceptible from a distance of about 40km, and locals named it Mosi-oa-Tunya ("smoke that thunders"). A 198 m long bridge spans the Boiling Pot, the beginning of a winding gorge of about 80 km in length through which the river flows below the falls. David Livingstone, the British explorer, visited the falls in 1855 and named them after Queen Victoria. The falls are part of two national parks.

Among other animals, the park is home to lions, cheetah, giraffes, many antelope species, warthogs, crocodiles, hippos, baboons and monkeys. It is especially renowned for the enormous elephant herds that roam the planes and migrate to the river in the evenings to bathe and drink.

Accommodation: Shinde Camp

2 Nights, All meals with activities
Shinde is nestled on a lush palm dotted area in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta. Located at the edge of a lagoon, it is surrounded by clear waterways which flow over yellow sands and past palm-fringed islands teeming with birdlife and game. This is a photographer's delight. Its remoteness has ensured that the innocent wildlife has not been subject to the pressures of mass tourism.

The island is especially favoured by members of the antelope family, including the elusive sitatunga whose elongated and splayed hooves enable it to walk on the unstable beds of reeds floating on the water. Well-equipped delta craft may take you on an interesting trip where you will see fascinating breeding colonies of herons, egrets, pelicans and storks. Your guide will arrange walks, show you insects, as well as a wide variety of bird life and game.
Shinde's abundant wildlife and the silent waters of the Okavango combine to make your stay a rare experience indeed!

Details: Animals in the Okavango Delta
The size of the Delta and the circumstance that its water level reaches its peak during the dry season in the surrounding regions has led to the development of an amazing variety and density of animal life in and around the area. To date 71 species of fish, 33 species of amphibians, 64 species of reptiles and 444 bird species have been identified in the Delta in addition to 122 species of mammals.

The Okavango Delta also offers an ideal environment for semi-aquatic animals such as hippos and Nile crocodiles as well as swamp-dwellers like sitatunga, lechwe and waterbuck antelope. Numerous other animals are drawn to the Delta for drinking water. Even those species that can survive for long periods without drinking water, such as the gemsbok, can be found in the area.

Many large mammals, such as elephants, Buffalo and gnus migrate to the Delta during the dry season in the surrounding regions. The density of predators in the Delta increases accordingly, including African wild dogs, hyenas, lions, leopards and other species of big cats. Hundreds of rare bird species populate the wetlands as well.
