Anya’s Amazing Victoria Falls and Botswana Safari

6 Days

Victoria Falls Botswana Safari – 2 nights Victoria Falls | 3 nights Chobe

Overview

Anya, did myself or Tyler ever email you regarding our trip? It’s been so long I can’t remember if we did. We had the most amazing time ever!

Everything went well so very pleased. I could honestly tell you that it was one of the best experiences in my life and I owe it to your perfect planning.  I have nothing but absolute praise for you and Pembury Tours. There is nothing I would change about the trip. Muchenje & Elephant Camp were the best lodges we ever stayed in. The staff was very attentive. The rooms were very luxurious. We enjoyed the game drives (inclusive the Big 5). Food was excellent (especially the braai by the waterhole). The transfers went smoothly.

Thanks very much for organizing our vacation.

Upon arrival in Johannesburg, you will be met off your International Flight by one of our representative who will hand over your travel documents. You remain in transit to connect with your direct flight to Victoria Falls. You are met at Victoria Falls Airport upon arrival and are transferred to your hotel for your two night stay.

Flying time: Johannesburg to Victoria Falls – approx. 1½ hours

Transfer time: Victoria Falls Airport to Hotel – approx. 20 minutes

Besides being one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is the unchallenged adventure capital of Africa with more than 50 activities available.

At 1708 metres wide, Victoria Falls is the most expansive curtain of water in the world and drops more than 100 metres into the sheer Zambezi Gorge. Straddling the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, these Falls and the Zambezi River are the central points in an area of spectacular scenic beauty: from the Falls themselves to the broad, picturesque course of the Zambezi River upstream, the rainforest adjacent and the stark jagged gorge downstream, the power and timelessness of nature’s forces are evident throughout.

The Falls’ local name, Mosi-Oa-Tunya – “the Smoke that Thunders” – more accurately defines the essence of the place: the rising, shining spray that can be seen 30km away. This vapour has the effect of adding moisture in the form of humidity to the air in the “splash zone”, so that a unique, small rainforest ecosystem clings to the edge of the Falls, providing a toehold for no less than 70 shrub and 150 herbaceous species, as well as trees such as pod and Natal mahogany, ebony, Cape and strangler fig and Transvaal red milkwood. There are two National Parks in the vicinity: the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe and the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park in Zambia, which means that herds of big game such as elephant and buffalo, as well as smaller species and even predators such as lion persist in the area.

This morning you are met and transferred by road to through the Kazungula Border through to Kasane Airport. Upon arrival at Kasane Airport, you are met by your lodge ranger and transferred by road through the Chobe National Park to your lodge in the Chobe National Park/Chobe Forest.

Upon arrival at your lodge, you have time to settle in before departing on your first afternoon game activity in the Chobe National Park

Transfer time: Victoria Falls to Kasane Airport – approx. 1 ½ hours (excluding border crossing)

Chobe National Park on Botswana’s north-west border is a pristine wilderness of open plains, baobab trees, ancient woodland, swamps and flood plains and is home to the greatest concentration of game in the entire southern African subcontinent. One of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe River forms the Park’s northern boundary. The Chobe riverfront area is most famous for its large herds of elephants and buffalo, which come down to the river in huge herds to drink during the dry winter months. During this season, one may see hundreds of elephants at one time.

Other species include waterbuck, lechwe, puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying Predators: lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa’s premier venues for bird Safaris. A highlight of Chobe is taking a river cruise, which allows you to get up close with hippo, crocodile and a mindboggling array of water birds. You also get really close to animals that come down to the river.

This morning is an early start. You will be transferred by road through the Kazungula Border to Victoria Falls Airport. Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you make your way to connect with your flight.
