Day 1: Arrive to Victoria Falls

Arrive in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and meet your transfer into Victoria Falls town. Ideally situated in Victoria Falls, the boutique Ilala Lodge is actually the closest hotel to Victoria Falls. A secluded setting overlooking green lawns (with periodic grazing wildlife) and the bordering lush National Park vegetation, Ilala Lodge has views of the “smoke” or mist of Victoria Falls. The rest of the day is free to explore the grounds of the hotel. 


Day 2: Explore Victoria Falls

After breakfast, head out to explore Victoria Falls with your guide.  This two hour tour of the Fall is a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell give you a humbling feeling that this is truly one of nature's supreme masterpieces. As you walk through the rainforest, your guide will teach you the history of the Falls and point out the surrounding flora, fauna, bird and wildlife. Return to your hotel for the afternoon.

Early evening, board a boat for a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River.  Sunset is not only a great time for some spectactular views but the perfect time to see animals and birds emerge in the cooling evening temperatures.  Enjoy some gourmet snacks, wines and spirits on board while you spy on hippos and crocodiles. Return to your hotel for dinner.

Please note the flow of the falls varies depending on season. 

Day 3-4: Camp Kuzuma

After breakfast on Day 3, transfer to Camp Kuzuma located in Kuzuma Forest Reserve. While at Camp Kuzuma, you will partake in three exciting scheduled safari activities daily. 

Camp Kuzuma’s game drive is the ideal occasion to spot the the wild animals of Botswana. The game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon, as wildlife is more active during the cooler hours of the day. A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness, including breeding herds of elephant, leopard, lion, spotted hyena, giraffe, large buffalo herds, roan antelope and sable to name a few.  In addition to game drives, bird watching, guided bush walks, spa treatments, cultural tours, and fishing trips can be arranged.


Day 5-7: Chobe Game Lodge

On day five, transfer to one of the iconic lodges in the Chobe area: the Chobe Game Lodge. It is the only safari lodge situated within the Chobe National Park, making it the perfect location to explore one of Africa's greatest parks. While at Chobe Game Lodge, you will partake in two scheduled safari activities daily.  On your own time be sure to take advantage of the raised boardwalk running a large length of the river, a wonderful viewpoint to watch elephants, hippos, crocodiles and lion coming down to drink.
