On the first day of your Best of Victoria Falls and Chobe safari package, you can fly in from Johannesburg or Cape Town directly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. After a private road transfer to Old Drift lodge, you’ll have some time to settle in and explore your surroundings.

Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River, lies Old Drift Lodge. The lodge boasts luxury accommodation overlooking the pristine Zambezi National Park, a mere 7 kilometers from the mighty Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Old Drift Lodge is nestled within a wild paradise frequented by elephant, buffalo, herds of sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala.

The main lodge area has 360 degree views, North facing onto the Zambezi & South facing onto a water hole. A 7 kilometre stretch of river flows between the camp and the town of Victoria Falls, making Old Drift Lodge the closest lodge within the National Park to Victoria Falls.

The highlight of your first day will definitely be the sunset cruise along the Zambezi River with access to the luxury deck and your choice of sundowner as you watch the natural show, as the light fades over the untouched landscape.

Stock up on a good breakfast just before you embark on your guided tour of Victoria Falls. First stop, the falls! This massive sheet of falling water and the spray that it produces is mesmerizing, to say the least. One of the largest waterfalls in the world, you will be taken through its rich rainforest to learn about its flora and fauna. Listen to the thundering water as you feel the mist of the spray around you.

Go on a scenic walk through the tropical rainforest and stop at the “Big tree” a giant Baobab, ideal for some memorable photographs. Next up is a visit to the Vulture Culture center where you can learn more about these fascinating and often overlooked scavenger birds of prey.

In the afternoon, put your feet up and relax. Or, you can make use of the hourly courtesy shuttle to Victoria Falls city center. Perhaps wander down to the local craft market where you can bargain for the iconic local soapstone carvings, masks, jewelry and Batik fabric.

In the evening you will be picked up and taken to an ethnic restaurant for a traditional dinner in a BOMA. Live traditional entertainment will be provided creating a memorable cultural experience. Maybe you will even be brave enough to try a Mopane Worm.

After breakfast, say goodbye to Zimbabwe as you catch your private road transfer to the Chobe National Park in Botswana. After the border crossing, enjoy a scenic drive through the Chobe National Park. En-route, keep a lookout for buffalo, giraffes and elephant as well as many other types of wildlife.

You will be spending two nights at Ngoma safari Lodge located in the Chobe Forest Reserve just 3km from the Chobe National Park (a region renowned for its outstanding wildlife, in particular the famous Chobe Elephants, and home to more than 75 mammal and 450 bird species), Ngoma Safari Lodge commands awe-inspiring views over the Chobe River and floodplains.

In the late afternoon cruise down Chobe River with a drink in hand and watch the African sunset. The river is filled with big pods of hippos and some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa.

Expect a massive dose of adventure. From safari cruises along the Chobe River to 4×4 game drives scouting for elephants (of which there are plenty), buffalos, lions, hyena and even African wild dog if you are lucky.

The birdlife is also excellent, from ubiquitous fish eagles to a myriad of herons and waders. Be sure to keep your camera fully charged throughout your stay, as there is always something to see around every corner. The Chobe truly is a mecca for wildlife-lovers.

There will also be some time to relax, perhaps have a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or unwind on the game viewing deck with a good book.

After a good night’s sleep, you will awake to a vibrant, fresh breakfast with a freshly brewed pot of hot coffee. Enjoy your last breakfast on the deck as you take in the scenery surrounding the marina one last time.

You will be taken back to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, where you can catch your flight out. If you feel 5 days is not quite long enough, you can easily combine this Best of Victoria Falls and Chobe Safari Package with another experience. Perhaps a few days in the Okavango Delta
