The 4 Night Victoria Falls and Chobe Safari is an ideal tour for travellers with limited time who want to see Victoria Falls and experience a Chobe safari.

Victoria Falls is a once in a lifetime phenomenon to witness

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 two major Southern African attractions, and this is done by enjoying 3 nights aboard the Chobe Princess Houseboat on the Chobe River. The Chobe Princess 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.
