Zambezi, Chobe & Vic Falls

A superb 5-night safari with 3 nights on the edge of the Zambezi River, 2 nights at Elephant Camp or Old Drift Lodge plus a day trip to Chobe.

Your five-day safari starts at Kazangula from Imbabala Lodge and will take you past the Zambezi and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Parks to finish at Victoria Falls. Kazangula marks the spot where four of southern Africa's prime safari destinations, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia, meet.

Imbabala is where you can "kick your shoes off" and relax for the first three nights. It is a quiet and tranquil spot in a private concession on the upper Zambezi - close enough for the action, far enough for some peace. The lodge is small and unpretentious, well known for its warm hospitality.

Imbabala borders Botswana's Chobe Forest Reserve so the wildlife viewing is excellent. Resident wildlife on the private concession is often joined by herds of elephants from Chobe that cross the borders.  Included in the package is a full day tour to Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Sightings of lion, painted dog, giraffe and kudu add to the scene. Birdlife is also phenomenal especially in summer's "green season" from November to April. Early morning, afternoon and nighttime game drives are part of the daily routine. The days are ended off with river cruises and spectacular sunsets.

The setting changes when you transfer for a two-night stay at Elephant Camp or Old Drift Lodge

Elephant Camp has an expansive private concession above the Batoka Gorge. You'll have the extraordinary opportunity to interact and learn about this herd of orphaned elephants, their history, future and the challenges of elephant conservation. 

Old Drift Lodge is upstream of Vic Falls, overlooking the Zambezi National Parik. Here you'll find a wild paradise filled with a variety of wildlife including elephant, sable, eland, giraffe, buffalo and a wide variety of birds.

The final day entails a transfer to Victoria Falls airport.
