Itinerary

07 Apr 21

Victoria Falls – Chobe National Park

Upon arrival travel west along the Zambezi Valley road to Kazangula, where you will complete border formalities and cross into Botswana. From there, it’s just a short drive to Chobe Safari Lodge, which is located on the bank of the Chobe River just outside of the National Park. After settling in and enjoying lunch, there will be time to relax until mid-afternoon when you’ll take a game drive in the park. You’ll almost certainly see elephants drinking at the waters' edge, and keep your eyes open for the park’s large herds of buffalo too. You will return to the lodge for dinner just after dusk. Accommodation at Chobe Safari Lodge is usually in rondavels – comfortable individual circular thatched units with private facilities and balconies. The lodge bar is a great place to enjoy a drink at the end of the day and dinner is often served outside with a smorgasbord of options. The lodge pool is also the perfect place to wash off the heat off the day or safari dust. Accommodation: Chobe Safari Lodge or similar (L/D)

08 Apr 21

Chobe National Park

Full day of wildlife exploration. Begin with a morning game drive to see the animals at their most active, followed by some time back at the lodge for relaxation during the hottest part of the day. Then, in the late afternoon, you’ll take a boat trip out on the Chobe River. Chobe National Park is archetypal big-game county, where huge herds of buffalo and elephants are matched by the size of the lion prides. An estimated 70,000 Kalahari elephants roam the park and are the largest known subspecies of elephant in the world by size. You may also see zebra, impala, wildebeest and giraffe. The bird life on the river can be truly spectacular with sightings of saddle-billed storks, malachite kingfishers, fish eagles, goliath herons and beautiful bee-eaters. Elephants will often congregate to drink and play in the river, and there are good hippopotamus numbers too. Tonight return to the lodge for your final evening and perhaps enjoy a drink as you look out over the waters of the Chobe River. Accommodation: Chobe Safari Lodge or similar (B/L/D)                              

09 Apr 21

Chobe Nation Park – Victoria Falls

This morning you’ll enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the lodge before being collected at 8am for a transfer back to either Victoria Falls township or Victoria Falls Airport, where your tour will end on arrival at around 10am. (B)
