Victoria Falls and Chobe

BOTSWANA + ZIMBABWE

This brief safari delivers two southern African hotspots

Victoria Falls - Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) - is one of Africa’s most iconic destinations and deservedly on many bucket lists. That awe-inspiring vertical drop of 108m into the chasm below and the mist spray curtain seen and heard from afar during the full flood - the stuff of legends.

And then there is Chobe - Botswana's most popular national park and a favourite safari for that 'big river' feel

Two of Africa’s most popular safari meccas – Victoria Falls & Chobe River

VICTORIA FALLS

Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.It’s also an adventure centre of note. You could stay in Vic Falls for ages and enjoy a different activity every day, from bungee jumping, gorge swinging and white water rafting, to helicopter and microlight flights (a.k.a the flight of angels), sunset boat and steam train cruises, horse riding, game drives, canoe trips, and so much more. Here is a detailed list of activities on offer.

During your stay on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, walk across the bridge to visit the Zambian side, which offers an exhilarating walk across the ‘Knife-edge Bridge’, a close-up view of the ‘Boiling Pot’ (a scary whirlpool at the base of the falls) and, for the really adventurous, a dip in the famous ‘Devil’s Pool‘.

Just wandering the streets of this quaint town is a memorable experience as you negotiate for souvenirs, dodge warthogs (and elephants!), hang out with locals and sample a range of restaurants and bars.


CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

The Chobe River waterfront near the town of Kasane attracts massive herds of elephants and buffaloes in the dry season, offering fantastic photographic opportunities as they bathe and drink in the late afternoon sunlight.

Wildlife includes four of the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo – only rhinos are absent), many antelope species (including the only population of puku in Botswana), zebras, giraffes and good populations of cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs, as well as a plethora of smaller species such as serval, aardwolf, pangolin, aardvark and bat-eared fox. Birding in northern Chobe can be rewarding, with over 450 species.

You will be met on arrival in Zimbabwe by one of our representatives and escorted to your road transfer. Again at the end of your safari, you will be met at your road transfer drop-off point and escorted to your departure flight or other arrangements.
