Victoria Falls for 2 nights followed by a 2 night stay in the 'Elephant Capital of the World' - the Chobe National Park in neighbouring Botswana. Being so close together, it is no surprise that these 2 highlights are a popular combination for so many guests coming to this area.
Victoria Falls is one of the 7 Wonders of the World, the sheer noise of the Falls as they cascade over the edge into the deep gorge is deafening, and the misty clouds of spray can be visible from over 30 km away - hence it's local name, Mosi-Oa-Tunya - "The smoke that thunders".
Enjoy 2 nights here staying at the VICTORIA FALLS SAFARI LODGE
Then have 2 unforgettable nights on safari in the Chobe National Park, the 2nd largest National Park in Botswana. The Park is most famous for its elephant population, and today is home to an estimated 100,000 elephants - which is believed to be the highest concentration of elephants to be found anywhere in the world.
But it is not only elephants that live here in huge numbers - hippos are plentiful, and float lazily in the Chobe River during the day, emerging at dusk to graze along the river banks.
Large herds of buffalo, zebra and lechwe (a type of antelope) are also common sightings, as are lion, hyena and cheetah.
As well as morning or afternoon guided game drives, take a sunset boat cruise down the Chobe River and view the wildlife as they come down to the waters edge to take a drink.
