Days 3 – 5: Okavango Delta
Travel along the Caprivi Strip to reach Popa Falls where the Okavango River enters the Delta.

Days 10 – 11: Chobe National Park
Incredibly rich in game due to the Chobe River providing water all year round, large herds of elephant are frequently seen walking to and from the river. There are many predators, such as lions and leopards, due to the high density of herbivores in this area.
