custom touring in victoria falls & botswana
15 March 2022: We are excited to confirm and share the news that travellers no longer need to produce a PCR test to enter Botswana if they are fully vaccinated – a great step in the right direction for travel!
IF AFRICA IS CALLING, LET VICTORIA FALLS & BOTSWANA FULFIL YOUR DREAMS
VICTORIA FALLS is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar and creates a magnificent spray of water visible for miles – hence the local name ‘mosi oa tunya’ meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’.
Victoria Falls can be accessed via Victoria Falls airport in Zimbabwe or Livingstone airport in Zambia. Your package would include transfers from either airport to your hotel or lodge in either Victoria Falls town or Livingstone. Include a private or shared tour of the Falls and a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River. Optional activities include a microlight or helicopter flight, canoe safari, river boat safari or tiger fishing. These can be booked in advance with the tour or you may want to decide once you arrive.
Botswana remains a true wilderness destination, unspoiled by mass tourism - suitable for the first time safari traveller and the seasoned safari enthusiast.

CHOBE is an area famous for its abundance of elephants, a variety of predators, herds of buffalo and possibly even roan and sable antelope. In the rainy season (Nov – Apr) the game is less concentrated at the river as the wildlife spreads throughout the greater area of Chobe National Park due to availability of surface water from nearby pans. This assists the vegetation on the river banks to recover from the massive herds attracted to the area in the dry months. The summer rains bring beautiful wild flowers, exquisite scenery, impressive bird life and an abundance of young animals usually born around November/December. The spectacular Chobe sunsets alone are worth a visit.
THE OKAVANGO DELTA is one of the world's largest inland deltas situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world - the Kalahari basin. This oasis in the middle of the desert is a rich yet fragile ecosystem, providing a life source for an incredible variety of wildlife. A wealth of species have adapted to the contrasting conditions created by living in the harsh Kalahari desert which is transformed annually with the arrival of the delta flood waters originating in Angola.
