Tour Itinerary

Private lodge tour

On this short 5-day safari, you will experience two highlights of Southern Africa: The mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and the impressive Chobe National Park in Botswana. You will visit a very special corner of the world, where large elephant herds roam the wilderness and where water thunders down rugged cliffs at a gigantic waterfall. We offer this short safari on a “comfort” and “standard” basis – both following the same itinerary, but taking you to different accommodations. You can combine this short trip with a self-drive or guided safari in Botswana or Namibia.

You receive a friendly greeting from your transfer driver upon your arrival at the Victoria Falls airport. After a short drive, you reach your accommodation, and you have the rest of the day to spend at your leisure. You could use the time to visit the Victoria Falls (optional). With an impressive width of over 1,7 Kilometres, the Victoria Falls is one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Its waters’ crash down approximately 110 Meters, creating an amazing natural spectacle. At times, when the water level is particularly high, the spray mist created by the falls can reach up to 30 Metres and is visible from a distance. Little surprise then that the Victoria Falls is also referred to as “Mosi oa Tunya” which literally means “the smoke that thunders”. You spend the night at The Elephant Camp (Comfort) or Pioneers Guest Lodge (Standard).

If you preferred relaxing from your travels yesterday and did not get to visit the imposing Victoria Falls, then today you have enough time to do so and more. Especially for the adventurers at heart, Victoria Falls has a lot to offer. Often referred to as the “Africa’s Adventure Capital”, at the Victoria Falls you can bungee jump, go white-water rafting or take a flight in a helicopter or a microlight aeroplane over the beautiful Falls. Or perhaps you would like to simply take a relaxing walk through the luscious rainforest located next to the Falls? You can also go on a lovely sundowner boat cruise on the Zambezi River or explore the small town of Victoria Falls and visit the wood carver’s market (all activities optional). In the evening, you spend another night at The Elephant Camp (Comfort) or the Pioneers Guest Lodge (Standard).

After a relaxed breakfast, today’s journey on your Chobe and Victoria Falls tour takes you across Zimbabwe’s border with Botswana.
