IF AFRICA IS CALLING, LET VICTORIA FALLS & BOTSWANA FULFILL YOUR DREAMS
Victoria Falls is an iconic destination in Africa where you can easily create a holiday on it own with activities and thrills to suit everyone, including day trips into Chobe National Park in Botswana for a wildlife experience. If time allows, combine Victoria Falls with a 4, 6 or 8 day safari in Botswana and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime with memories to last forever. Experience the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, Chobe River safaris, open land rover game drives, cultural experiences, desert camps, water based camps in the Okavango Delta. Family safaris spanning three generations are a favourite of ours in Botswana and we would love to introduce you to the wonder of Africa in this way.
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 of 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.
CHOBE, BOTSWANA 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 to the area.
THE OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA 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.
You may choose to leave out Victoria Falls and focus on Botswana, in which case you would fly into/out of Kasane or Maun, depending on the itinerary. We recommend at least 6 nights in Botswana, divided between Chobe and Okavango. Various accommodation categories are available in lodges and tented camps and all transfers and small aircraft flights are included. Luggage restrictions apply on flights: soft bags without wheels, max 20kg per person, including hand luggage.
