Prices From:
US$ 2,720

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Experience the beauty of Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park on this vacation to Zimbabwe and Botswana. Begin at Victoria Falls, where you’ll take in the Smoke That Thunders before cruising the Zambezi River. It’s then into Botswana to head on game safari in Chobe National Park.


This 6-day Zimbabwean vacation takes you to Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park. It features first-class accommodations, small group tours, and is an ideal introduction to southcentral Africa.

Your journey begins in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls, the world’s largest waterfall system and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. On your first full day you’ll hike through the rainforest, feeling the spray of the falls mist your face as you approach its overwhelming torrents, eventually breaking through the bush to see the millions of gallons of water gushing over the falls each second. In the afternoon, embark on the Zambezi Explorer and journey along the Zambezi River, drinking sundowners as you venture along this mighty river and enjoy the sun falling in the sky.

From Victoria Falls, cross the border into Botswana and head to Chobe National Park, a massive game reserve known for its abundance of elephant herds. Staying at Elephant Valley Lodge, situated adjacent to Chobe National Park, you’ll enjoy first-class accommodations as you head on daily game drives in the park and boat cruises on the Chobe River. Venture through the park to see elephant herds crossing the swampy plains or zebra and water buffalo crowding along the banks of the Chobe River.

At the end of your stay, connect back to Kasane to continue to your onward destination.

Day 1

Arrive Victoria Falls

On arrival, you are met by your local representative from Goway and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the morning is spent at leisure to relax and enjoy your surroundings.

The afternoon is spent on a unique elephant experience that is brought to life by the artistic strokes of your fingertips, while surrounded by the African bush. The Manager at 'The Wallow' will meet guests on arrival to talk to them about the elephants and their history. After interacting with the 'models', guests will make their way down to the adjacent waterhole and mud wallow where under the shade of an enormous Mopane tree, they will find a chair and easel - each set up with a fresh sheet of paper. Brightly colored aprons and palettes with bright splotches of paint will also be handed out. Soon guests' white sheets of paper will be transformed into a canvas with a glorious blue sky, sunshine, yellow, brown or green grass and of course elephants. Once finished, guests will go back to 'The Wallow' for a delicious two-course buffet lunch accompanied by a cold beverage rounding off a perfect morning's experience. After lunch guests will be transferred back to their accommodation in Victoria Falls.

Day 2

Private Tour of Victoria Falls

No surprise why Victoria Falls is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World! You'll understand it instantly as you tour the Zimbabwean side, for there are numerous spectacular vantage points along the width of the Falls, and the sight of this astounding gift of nature, simply takes your breath away. Walk through the permanent, beautifully misty rain forest which flanks the Falls, stopping to marvel at the principal sites as it cascades to the depths below: the Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Rainbow Falls, the Boiling Pot, Cataract Island and Livingstone Island. We'll stand and watch, feel and listen to the spray and thunderous noise, as millions of litres of water tumble over the Falls into a series of narrow gorges below. The seventh Natural Wonder of the World puts on the most dramatic show for you, and you'll be privileged to have watched it.
