Day-by-Day Programme


Places to visit: Johannesburg, Victoria Falls and Chobe. Experience the mighty Victoria Falls on foot - a guided tour through the rain forest where you will be able to view the cataracts. Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Amongst the must-do activities lined up is, bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge and taking a helicopter flight or a balloon trip over the falls. If these two don't work for you, then an elephant back safari in the African bush, white water rafting, canoeing on the Zambezi River or jet boating are the other options.

At Chobe, you enjoy game activities in Chobe National Park and a river cruise on the Chobe River to meet with the hippos. One of the parks biggest attractions is the annual zebra migration. It also boasts one of the largest elephant populations in Africa. Other major animal species are giraffe, impala, hyenas, leopards, wildebeest, kudu, water buck, warthog, jackals and many more. The birds and fish are in plenty here.

 

 

 

Day 1:  Livingstone - Victoria Falls

Depart Johannesburg mid-morning for your flight to Livingstone in Zambia. On arrival at Livingstone Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The local Kololo tribe calls it "Mosi-oa-Tunya" or "The Smoke that thunders". Situated on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, the Victoria Falls occur where the steadily flowing Zambezi river, unaware of what lies ahead, casually approaches the falls, then suddenly plunges down a series of basalt gorges in a breathtaking display of several waterfalls.

Mist and thunder from the falls can be seen and heard from far off. The spray from the falls sustains the rain forest on the opposite wall of basalt and creates an almost constant rainbow visible even by the light of the moon. The falls are best seen from the air, thus activities such as helicopter flights, balloon rides and micro-lighting over the falls are a must do. Other exciting activities available are bungee jumping off the bridge - which also gives a spectacular view down the gorge, canoeing, white water rafting, river safaris, elephant back safaris and many more.

For those who are prepared to brave the tremendous spray of the falls, there are nature walks through the rain forest giving an unparalleled series of views of the falls. Animal lovers are not to be left out. The Victoria Falls National Park and Zambezi National Park provide a home for big game such as elephants, buffalo, lions, giraffe, antelopes, and baboons amongst others. Riverine bird life is also plentiful and the Zambezi is renowned for its variety of fish.

Overnight at the Rainbow Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis.

 

 

Day 2: Victoria Falls

After breakfast you will be taken on a guided walking tour of Victoria Falls that will take you through the rain forest where you are able to view the Cataracts. Enjoy a visit to the local craft market, plus a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River.

Overnight at the Rainbow Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis.

 

 

Day 3: Victoria Falls - Chobe National Park

After breakfast transfer across the Botswana border to Chobe by road to your lodge. After settling in, enjoy an afternoon activity in the Chobe National Park. Overnight at a game lodge including full board and game drives.

Chobe National Park is named after the Chobe River. It is the second largest national park in Botswana and is home to a large animal population and over 450 bird species. It has four distinctly different eco-systems; Serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the extreme North-East of Chobe River area, the Savuti Marsh area in the West, the Linyati Swamps in the North West and the hot dry hinterland in between the other three.

One of its biggest attractions is the annual zebra migration. It also boasts one of the largest elephant populations in Africa. The elephants are migratory and move from the Chobe and Linyati rivers where they concentrate during the dry seasons, to the pans in the southeast section of the park where they disperse during the rains. These elephants are said to have the distinction of being the largest in body size of all living elephants. Their ivory though is brittle and you won?t spot any large tusks on them.

The most popular area is the stretch of the Chobe River from Kasane town to Serondela campsite. Hundreds of hippos and crocodiles gather here. The Savuti region is one of the best-known wildlife places especially for lion sightings. Other major animal species are giraffe, impala, hyenas, leopards, wildebeest, kudu, water buck, warthog, jackals and many more. Its rich bird life includes species such as eagles, kingfishers, marabou storks and bee-eaters. For fishing enthusiasts, Chobe River provides a large variety of edible fish. Game viewing is best during the dry season, April to October when the majority of natural pans have dried up. Animals however are present year round.

Overnight at Chobe Safari Lodge.
