Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta and Chobe Safari (7 days)


Safari: Botswana, Zambia

Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta and Chobe Safari (7 days)

This three-in-one journey will show you the majestic Victoria Falls, the massive elephant bulls of Chobe and the natural wonder that is the Okavango Delta

Kick your journey off with a visit to the World Heritage Site of Victoria Falls in Zambia. From there you'll visit Chobe National Park in Botswana, exploring by land in a 4x4 safari vehicle and along the Chobe River on a boat cruise that gets you close enough to the big game for good photographs even without a zoom lens. Your final stop is Botswana's Okavango Delta, which in 2013 was declared one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. The area is rich in wildlife in the dry season (May to August), including the Big Five as well as giraffe, sitatunga and lechwe antelope.
