Overview

Introduction

Nothing will prepare you for the awesome power and spectacle that is Victoria Falls or the beauty and majesty of the vast herds of elephants and buffalo in Chobe, Botswana. The Falls are the world's largest sheet of falling water. As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, and the Zambezi River which feeds the Falls are also the natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It goes by two official names; Victoria Falls and Mosi-oa-Tunya which translates as The Smoke that Thunders. Its spray can be seen 40kms away and the sound rumbles through the basalt cliffs of the gorge into which it plummets. Not only are the Victoria Falls in Zambia, and the Chobe in Botswana beautiful, they’re also the location of some of the most memorable experiences you’ll ever have.

Itinerary

+ Day 1

After a mid-morning flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone in Zambia, you’ll be met at the airport by a tour representative and transferred to your hotel, a mere 5-minute walk from the Falls themselves. All guests have unlimited access to the Victoria Falls. After checking-in, you will discover the fabulous experiences already in store for you. This part of Africa has so many adventures and delights that you may decide to reserve a place on other experiences as well. As you settle in, you can choose to relax and unwind in the expansive pool, lounge on the deck, enjoy a delicious light snack, or stroll the beautiful grounds. Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy the gardens. You may meet zebras, buck or even warthogs!

+ Day 2

This morning, on a guided tour, you will discover the Victoria Falls and experience much the same as explorer and missionary, David Livingstone must have when he, the first European to see the Falls, encountered them. Nothing could have prepared him for their stunning, almost overpowering beauty. They are the largest sheet of falling water in the world at 1,700m across, 108m high and the Zambezi River pours over at a rate of 935 cubic m per second. No wonder he said, “…scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight." Along the edge of the opposite side of the Falls is the rain forest, a narrow stretch of almost mystical beauty that thrives purely because of the volume of spray from the cascading water. Apart from flowers, trees and ferns that are endemic to this stretch of rainforest, you may catch a glimpse of shy bushbuck and other animals within its green and lush heart. After shopping in the local market, you will return to the hotel to relax before floating luxuriously along the Zambezi River on a scenic 2-hour sunset cruise and discovering a whole new, lazy charm about the Zambezi River, one that is quite different to the power of the Falls. While you enjoy a feast of snacks and drinks, you will enjoy the unforgettable sight of an African sunset. There’s nothing like it anywhere else. You may also enjoy sight of elephant, drinking along the shore or even swimming across the river, hippo poking their eyes and snouts above the water to watch you pass by. Once back at the hotel, the evening is at your leisure.

+ Day 3

There’s nothing like the birdlife of Africa to make rising early an absolute joy, and you’ll need an early start today for your Chobe National Park experience. Chobe is in Botswana and it’s important to arrive at the border post just as it opens. What’s so special about Chobe? This famous national park covers a huge range, 11,700 square kms of the spectacular Northern Kalahari, unlike anywhere else on earth. It’s the perfect place to go on safari, and that includes the Chobe Riverfront, along which your safari begins. A leisurely three-hour game-viewing cruise on the Chobe River is the perfect way to experience the timelessness of the African bush and its animals. On the river you can see the abundant birdlife from Goliath herons to delicate waders and the African skimmers whose fishing skills are truly something to see. There are also the massed pods of hippos, the rugged and seemingly prehistoric crocodiles, as well as the imposing yet maternal herds of elephant and the nervous, yet beautiful antelope that drink from the Chobe River. After lunch, you will explore the park beyond the river in a 4x4 safari vehicle with an experienced guide. Beautiful wilderness, open grasslands, lush flood plains and dense woodlands means that there is habitat for almost every kind of African animal that makes its home in Southern Africa. Prides of lions are common and the mighty herds of buffalo and elephant are among the largest anywhere. Returning to your hotel, where you will have dinner and the evening at leisure, your dreams will be filled with the majesty that is Africa at its finest.
