VICTORIA FALLS

7th wonder of the world!

Click for activities

The Victoria Falls – Now in it's 150 millionth fantastic year - Reaches Its zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight. .

The Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe - the largest sheet of falling water in the world and significant worldwide for its exceptional geological and geomorphological features and active land formation processes with outstanding beauty attributed to the falls i.e. the spray, mist and rainbows.

David Livingstone, was the first European to see the Victoria Falls in 1855. The Scottish explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view the falls, and he named them Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria.

Known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya or "the smoke that thunders" because of the spray made by the mass of water dropping 100 meters below in the gorges. 50 Years later, missionaries and traders settled in the small Zambian town of Livingstone and the railway bridge over the Zambezi was built.

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK & CHOBE RIVER

Safari in spectacular Chobe!

The Chobe National Park established in 1968 covers 11,700 square kilometers and is situated in the northern most part of Botswana. Park stretches from the tip of northern Botswana to the fringes of the Okavango Delta. It has a wide range of distinctive landscapes, from the emerald floodplains of the Chobe River to the sweeping grasslands of the Savuti Marsh and skeletal leadwood trees in the Savuti Channel.
Encompassing swamps, floodplains and woodlands it is the third largest Park or Reserve in the country after Kgalagadi Transfontier Park and the largest of them all the Central Kalahari Game reserve.

With such varied environments and habitats there’s a magnificent array of wildlife. A profusion of palatable grass species attracts a variety of herbivores, including wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe, and tsessebe. The puku is found, as is the endemic Chobe bushbuck. Predator sightings are good, with leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and large prides of lion that hunt elephant. From servals to side-striped jackals, the list is endless.

All that said, Chobe is most famous for its elephant and buffalo populations, both of which can herd in mammoth proportions. With an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 elephants, these gentle giants constantly surround you. In the dry season the Chobe River sees thousands lining the banks and crossing the water. Boat trips at this time provide excellent photograph opportunities.

The Chobe River forms its northern boundary and in the extreme south-west it borders the Moremi Game Reserve. The riverfront is a markable wildlife area due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. Most wildlife activity occurs along the banks of the river - especially during the drier winter months (May – October) when animals congregate at the river to quench their thirst. The spectacle of all the animals coming to drink and frolic at the water's edge is a sight t behold! Birding enthusiasts will find the riverfront a fantastic destination at this time with more than 400 species of birds, including migratory species and numerous birds of prey.

Chobe River House Boat

Water safari days!

Cruising along the Chobe River with a fresh cocktail in your hand, watching an orange-glowing sun sink slowly below the horizon... this experience is so much more than a river cruise! It is a magical experience, where you can get extremely close to very relaxed wildlife.
This 45 meter long luxury boat cruises gently down the river, with amazing views over the Caprivi Strip on one side and Chobe National Park on the other.

This luxury vessel has three floors with fourteen cabins on the first and second floor. Spacious, modern, beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and spa-like bathroom – just to name a few characteristics. There are ten cabins with a small private balcony and four larger master cabins. Cabins are twin or double, en-suite with a toilet and shower. There are fans and shutters to keep the cabin cool. All the main areas are on the top floor (for the best views), air-conditioned and protected by mosquito screening. Simply nestle yourself into one of the cozy nooks, glimpse at game through a telescope, order your favorite drink at the bar, or dip in the plunge pool with a 360°-degree view. And let’s not forget the culinary delights, served on board. From a creamy bowl of warming porridge in the morning, to a decadent white chocolate parfait at night: dining here is a treat. The well-trained kitchen staff effortlessly combines local flavors with culinary delights from the west, creating mouth-watering dishes, suited for true gourmet palates.

When you wake up and peek through the curtains, you will see elephants, hippos, birds - all indulging in the fresh waters of the Chobe River. Once on board, flexibility is key. Feel like venturing out in a smaller boat, or trying your luck during a tiger fishing trip? It’s all possible. Leave the ‘mother ship’ by hopping on a smaller, yet comfortable, tender boat to get even closer to the wildlife. You can also lean back and relax all morning on the viewing deck to the background sound of rippling water. It is all about finding your own flow.

You will cruise along one of the most game-dense areas of Africa. During dry season, islands along the riverbank of the Chobe river stay green, attracting wildlife from all over. From tender boats, enjoy water-based safari activities, full of elephant watching (Chobe is home to one of the biggest elephant populations in the world!), spotting rare birds, buffalo herds, prides of lions, hippos lolling about and much more. Like fishing? Tiger and bream fishing tours are offered in season. Go on a tour to a local village to see more of Botswana’s rich culture or sign up for a game drive into Chobe National Park (at an additional cost). Activities are in the mornings and afternoons, with a delicious lunch in between during the hottest hours of the day (and perhaps followed by a siesta?). After the afternoon safari activity, sundowners, dinner and amazing African skies are served. The boat is moored in Namibian waters every evening, to provide you with the most spectacular views of the African sunset. Yes, this truly is smooth sailing in style!

ACTIVITIES
Activities include: Water-based safaris with motorboats, fishing, birding, cultural tours and Boabab land outing.
