Safari details

Day 1 and 2

Victoria Falls

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred from Victoria Falls Airport to your lodge in town. Visit to Victoria Falls this afternoon (if time allows), either on your own or arrange to go with a guide. We recommended taking a sunset Zambezi boat cruise to end the day (optional extra) or to dine at The Boma Restaurant for a taste of the African flavours, action, music and atmosphere.One full day is set aside to enjoy any of the many activities on offer. Overnight at Ilala Lodge (Bed & Breakfast) 

Day 3 and 4

Chobe National Park

After breakfast, and a last morning activity in Victoria Falls (if time allows), you will be collected from the lodge and transferred across the border into Botswana. Your driver will assist with the border crossing which is an experience in itself. Check in at the lodge and enjoy your activities as included (game drives, boating, canoeing (seasonal and water level dependent) & village visit).A chance to see large herds of elephants from up close and plenty other wildlife from an open safari vehicle and the river.This property is located near the Ngoma Gate for entry to the Chobe Riverfront. Very few lodges are located on this end of the park and few people utilize this entry point, creating a more remote and exclusive experience than at the properties around Kasane. Although outside the park, this option is located in a bush setting where wildlife frequently passes through. Overnight at Chobe Elephant Camp (fully inclusive of meals and activities)
