Stunning Chobe Safari With Victoria Falls Add On

Discover the wonders of a Chobe safari, after a thrilling experience with Victoria Falls. This short five-day safari provides a sublime introduction to Southern Africa, offering a range of experiences in a land of natural excess. Experience the romance of sunset cruises on the Chobe River, the abundance of elephants and giraffe, plus dreamy views onto the falls.

Victoria Falls: One of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls has the largest curtain of falling water anywhere on the planet. You hear it before you see it and getting soaked by spray is part of the experience.

Chobe Safari: Maybe you can imagine what it is like to see an elephant. How about 100 elephants? What about 100,000 elephants? More elephants live in Chobe than anywhere else and on a Chobe safari you’re completely surrounded by the pachyderms.

Take a sunset cruise and marvel at so many of them congregating at the water’s edge. Enjoy fascinating game drives in an open safari vehicle, with buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, and a superb variety of birds. Experience the romance of the Chobe River on a sundowner cruise, as hippos emerge onto the banks.

Travel Tip: May to September are the ideal months for a Chobe safari. Game viewing is at its peak and it will be peak flow at Victoria Falls.
