Vic Falls & Chobe Explorer

A one-week safari combining Victoria Falls Safari Lodge and Chobe Bush Lodge in Botswana for a wildlife bonanza

Spend 3 nights at Chobe Bush Lodge in Botswana and 3 nights in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

Chobe Bush Lodge is situated in Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River and shares a border with Chobe National Park. Right on its doorstep is the meeting of four African countries: Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia, making the lodge an excellent getaway location. 

Included in your 3-night stay at Chobe Bush Lodge is breakfast and buffet dinner each day, game drive, boat cruise, 2-hour private boat ride and a Namibian village walk.

Continue your trip with a stay at the comfortable, convenient and brightly ethnic Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. Overlooking the Zambezi National Park, this lodge is situated just 4km upstream of Vic Falls. The lodge itself enjoys uninterrupted views over a well-frequented waterhole and beyond to the Zambezi National Park. Buffalo, elephant, warthogs and various antelope plus a myriad of birds are regular daily visitors. Sunsets are spectacular.

Enjoy a complimentary sunset cruise on the Zambezi River and a guided tour of the Falls.

    • Chobe River cruises have to be one of the finest game viewing experiences in Africa. With over 80 000 elephant in the park alone they are a very frequent sighting. Hippo, water birds, buffalo, crocodile and puku are also viewed from the river. 
    • Private cruises, led by expert guides are available throughout the day to suit your individual needs.
    • Fishing for the legendary Tigerfish and several species of Bream not only provides an exciting fishing experience, but excellent game viewing (crocodile, hippo, elephant, buffalo) and birding as well. Equipment is provided, and a knowledgeable guide is on hand for all expeditions. Fishing is done by boat positioned near banks and mid-river rocks.

    • The Victoria Falls are at their lowest level around November/December and at their peak level in April/May. White water rafting is not available during very low or very high water levels.
    • It is difficult to photograph the Falls successfully at peak levels due to the amount of spray!

    Tips and notes
