Travel to Zambia and Tongabezi Lodge – Check out and depart Savute Lodge in Botswana for a late morning flight from the Lodge to Kasane Airport.

From there we cross into Zambia and drive to Tongabezi Lodge.  Since our inception we have understood that a journey can act like truth serum. For a finite space in time the traveller is buffered against what is taken for granted and is able to experience enlightenment, beauty and Technicolor dreams.
