Explore Chobe National Park and visit Victoria Falls and Livingstone.

Combine two unique and moving African experiences on this short, but jam-packed, adventure through Zambia and Botswana. See one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders, the impressive Victoria Falls; it's so massive you'll hear and feel it too. Then move on to the excitement of an African safari in Chobe National Park, where herds of elephants share their riverside playground with hippos, water birds and antelopes. All the while, stay in safari lodges where you can relive each day's events in comfort and style.

Itinerary

Africa's adrenaline capital, Livingstone, is the perfect place to kick off the adventure. Head to the mighty Victoria Falls and admire the columns of spray from this curtain of falling water. Knife Edge Bridge and the forests immediately opposite the falls, on the Zimbabwean side, provide unparalleled views. There are plenty of optional activities on offer as well. Why not inspect the falls from another angle with an exhilarating helicopter flight, or perhaps get the pulse racing with some bungee jumping, canyoning or abseiling.
Travel by car and ferry to reach the Chobe National Park. Nestled in the northern corner of Botswana amid lush forest, Chobe is home to some of the largest elephant populations on the continent - as well as lions and a flurry of birdlife, including the famous African fish eagle. Cruise the Chobe River in the late afternoon to enjoy a golden sunset. Glimpse hippos ambling along the banks and other animals taking a drink along the shore. In the evening, relax with a tasty dinner and retire to the comfort of a safari lodge.
Journey back to Livingstone where our trip ends. Why not take the opportunity to visit the Livingstone Museum to learn more about this dauntless Scottish explorer who was lost for six years before Henry Morton Stanley finally found him, greeting him with the famous words, 'Dr Livingstone, I presume'. Still seeking some adrenaline-inspired action? Then why not pay another visit to the powerful Victoria Falls for more adventure sports and exploration.
