Victoria Falls & Chobe - 5 days

This itinerary is an example of how you can combine Vic Falls and Botswana, however all our tours are tailored by our travel experts based on your preferences, travel dates and budget.

The legendary Mosi-Oa-Tunya or “The Smoke that Thunders” stretches over 1.5km as it plunges over 100m into the Zambezi gorge below. Victoria Falls is a must-see for travellers to Southern Africa, and so easily combined with the wildlife viewing in the Chobe region of Botswana being only 90 minutes’ drive away. Famed for having the largest concentration of African elephants in Africa – estimated to be around 30 000 animals – Chobe National Park is the best place to witness these majestic animals.
