Experience Botswana's premier safari areas along with the heart-stopping natural grandeur of the Victoria Falls.
Guests are met and welcomed at any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria and transferred to O R Tambo International for a flight to Maun in Botswana and from there a light charter connection into the heart of the Okavango Delta. This is where your luxury Okavango with Chobe and Victoria Falls safari begins.
Safaris in the Okavango Delta are characterized by extraordinary scenes which visitors will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere on the continent. From herds of water-loving lechwe splashing across the waterways to riveting encounters between predators and their quarry, your twice daily safari activities are sure to secure some incredible sightings.
A last morning safari in the Okavango Delta is followed by a charter flight to Kasane, where guests are met and transferred to Chobe Game Lodge. The lodge sits on a hill overlooking the Chobe River. The Chobe National Park is the second largest national park in Botswana and is 10 566 square kilometers in extent. It has one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife found on the African continent.
Guests spend two nights at Chobe Game Lodge on a full board basis. Two game activities are conducted daily by experienced rangers and trackers. The game activities consist of either open 4x4 game drives in the national park or enjoying water-based game viewing from a boat on the Chobe River.
A last morning safari in Chobe is followed by breakfast, after which guests are transferred to Botswana's border with Zambia. After crossing the Zambezi River, which forms the border between these two African countries, a short drive leads to the town of Livingstone. The town was named after the famous British explorer and is on the Zambian side of the mighty Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls. These Falls have inspired and awed explorers and poets alike and are one of the world's seven natural wonders.
The morning is devoted to visiting the Falls section of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The name translates to ‘the smoke that thunders’, which is the name the locals have bestowed upon the Victoria Falls. The national park offers perfectly placed observation points from which to enjoy the falls. A visit during the dry season may include the added appeal of strolling over to Livingstone Island for a unique (and adrenalin-inducing) perspective of the Falls. If time allows, have a gander around the local curio market before returning to your overnight accommodation.
In the late afternoon, a sunset cruise is enjoyed on the mighty Zambezi River. Traditional cocktails and snacks are served aboard the river boat. The sight of the sun setting over one of Africa's most impressive natural arenas will surely be remembered for a lifetime.
A last glimpse of the thundering Victoria Falls is followed by a transfer to Livingstone Airport and a flight to Johannesburg, where guests will be met and transferred to any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria after memorable Okavango with Chobe and Victoria Falls safari.
