The 4 Night Victoria Falls and Chobe Safari is an ideal tour for travelers with limited time that want to see Victoria Falls and experience a Chobe safari. The Chobe National park of northern Botswana and Victoria Falls are quite close to each other, so it just makes good sense to combine these to major Southern African attractions, and this is done by enjoying 3 nights aboard the Pangolin Voyager Houseboat on the Chobe River. The Pangolin Voyager is officially located in Namibian territory but to access the boat we take you through Botswana territory (the town of Kasane), and then you enter Namibia by boat via Impalila Island.
Day 01 - Johannesburg to Victoria Falls
Today you board your flight at the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg for the Victoria Falls Airport in Zimbabwe. On arrival at Victoria Falls, you will be met and transferred to the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, where you will spend the next (1) night on a bed & breakfast basis in a waterhole facing room. Situated on a slight rise, the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has commanding views of the neighbouring Zambezi National Park. This 72 roomed lodge is just 4 kilometers from the falls itself, and offers guests a fine way to enjoy a pre or post safari visit to the Victoria Falls.
In the afternoon you will be collected for a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River including drinks (beer and wine) and light snacks.
