Quick and affordable Victoria Falls & Chobe experience

Visit Livingstone, Zambia, to marvel at the Victoria Falls – or 'the smoke that thunders' – before going on safari and a river cruise in Botswana's Chobe National Park

This journey takes you to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls to marvel at what is the largest sheet of falling water in the world. After a walking tour of this World Heritage Site, you may decide to challenge yourself to one of the many adrenalin activities for which the area has become famous. 

From there you travel to Chobe National Park in Botswana. Watch the African sun set, cruise along the Chobe River alongside huge elephant, hippo, buffalo and crocodile, or go on a 4x4 safari in search of lion, cheetah or the beautiful endangered sable antelope with its curved horns.
