Day 2 Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls – Now in it’s 150 millionth fantastic year - Reaches Its zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight.
Dr Livingstone was the first European to see the Victoria Falls in 1855. Known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya or "the smoke that thunders" because of the spray made by the mass of water dropping 100 meters below in the gorges. Livingstone renamed the falls Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria. 50 Years later, missionaries and traders settled in the small Zambian town of Livingstone and the railway bridge over the Zambezi was built.
After your return from visiting the Victoria Falls, consider one of the many exhilarating activities available:
- Lion encounter
- White Water Rafting
- Bungee jumping
- Explore Victoria Falls town
- Enjoy a majestic afternoon flight over the Victoria falls - The so-called ‘flight of angels’ is undoubtedly the most breath-taking way to see the magnificent Victoria Falls in all their glory, and to get those picture postcard panoramic photos you have always dreamed of. This is also a great way to see the Zambezi River as it leads up to the Falls, as well as the formation of the spectacular gorges that are carved out below.

Day 3.4 & 5 Chobe Game Reserve
Following breakfast, pick up with 1.5 hour road transfer to Chobe, stopping at Kasane immigration point to enter Botswana.Road transfer - 30 mile road transfer from Kasane to the lodge.
Chobe National Park allow game to roam freely, the 11 700 km² (4 500 square mile) reserve is located in the far north of Botswana, bordering on the Chobe River. Chobe is particularly well known for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as the two antelope that cannot be encountered anywhere else in Botswana, the Puku and the Chobe bushbuck.
Covering approximately a third of the eastern portion of the Caprivi, the Zambezi and Chobe flood plains combines permanent waterways with drier areas, creating areas filled with unexpected contrasts and diverse wildlife. The Chobe flood plains are in a constant state of flux, expanding and contracting according to the rainy season. While some parts of the Chobe remain permanently flooded, others only experience high water levels from May to September, when rainwater from Zambia flow into the Zambezi and Chobe rivers.
The camp is situated in the Eastern Caprivi, merely 4 km from the Ngoma border post between Botswana and Namibia, across the river from the world renowned Chobe nature reserve, home to one of the largest concentrations of elephant on the African continent. Sprawled along the banks of the back waters, the lodge flawlessly combines the best of this unique inland flood plain - the peace and serenity of gliding through waterways lined with lush aquatic plants and the excitement of searching for big game through endless miles of green grassland.
Chobe Camp is located on these plains, with its tall mopane woodlands and spreading floodplains fringed with majestic Baobab trees, make it one of Africa’s most scenic wilderness areas. Permanent swamp areas are lush and green, with papyrus and water lilies growing around deep lagoons lined with riverine forest that are dominated by jackal berry, mangosteen and sausage trees. Seasonal swamps, on the other hand, contain a network of small channels cutting their way through papyrus and reed beds to create islands of all shapes and sizes.
Days are spent enjoying game drives, game walks and and canoe safari experiences!
