Start your Botswana tour by leisurely exploring the magnificent Victoria Falls for two days. Choose from a host of exciting optional activities here such as bungee jumping, white water rafting, cruising, etc.
Arrive at Victoria Falls Airport, Zimbabwe, where our local representative will meet you and transfer you to Ilala Lodge, located in the heart of Victoria Falls town.
Victoria Falls is located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. While it is not the highest or the widest waterfall in the world, it is perhaps the largest. The width of the falls is about 1,708m and it is about 108m high, forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The Falls were named after Queen Victoria by David Livingstone, a Scottish missionary who is said to be the first European to see the Falls. The indigenous name – "Mosi-oa-Tunya" literally translates to mean "Cloud that Thunders". Tumbling cascades of water that throw moisture far into the air ensure a cool walk through the bush and breathtaking views of the Fall.
Victoria Falls offers many exciting activities like bungee jumping, white water rafting, boat cruising, and African market shopping. (All optional activities at additional cost and can be organized by the Ilala activities desk)
Ilala Lodge Hotel is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi river, where it is the closest hotel to Victoria Falls. Wild animals often graze on the hotel lawns and restaurant diners can see the spray of the falls in the background while they enjoy some of Zimbabwe's finest cuisine in Ilala's Palm Restaurant. All rooms have en suite bathrooms with separate showers, air conditioning, and other modern facilities.
Enjoy morning and evening game drives along with experienced rangers and trackers to spot the Big Five and a host of other wildlife species at Chobe National Park.
Along the Chobe riverfront, the terrain is that of a typical riverine ecosystem. Away from the river you will find mixed miombo and broadleaved woodland that harbours rich avifauna. Northern Chobe is famous for its huge elephant population and buffalo herds, pukus, kudus, Chobe bushbucks, and hippos as well as diverse bird life. Also spot lions, leopards, wild dogs, giraffes, waterbucks, zebras, and impalas.
Today, you will be driven from your lodge to the Botswana Kazungula border (one hour). After passing immigration, you will meet your guide who will then drive you into Kasane for a three hour boat cruise with packed lunch before heading into Chobe National Park in your 4x4 open vehicle. You will arrive at the camp in the afternoon were you can either relax or proceed on a short game drive and take sundowners near the Chobe river.
The next day, you'll have an early wake up call followed by a light continental breakfast before you leave for your morning game drive. Later, you can relax in camp and enjoy a siesta before heading off again in the afternoon around 3pm. Return to camp for a hot bush shower and a meal under the stars in the evening.
You'll be camping and your camp team will now move with you for the rest of the tour. Your camp will consists of medium sized walk-in tents (3 x 3 m) with built-in floors, mosquito gauze on two door and two windows. It also has a small shaded front verandah with door mats and chairs. All the rooms have beds with mattresses (in a bedroll to keep bedding dust proof when moving camp). Full linen (one pillow & pillow case; sheets, duvet, duvet cover and two extra blankets; bath and hand towels & face cloth) is provided along with toiletries (soap, toilet paper, mosquito repellant, mirror). The camp is equipped with en suite shower (private portable shower, filled on request with hot water by camp staff) and en suite bush toilet (toilet seat over a pre-dug pit with sand).

These waters fan out into the Okavango Delta forming a wetland system of beautiful palm-fringed channels, lagoons and islands that support a wealth of fauna and flora alike.
After nine days of exhilaration, transfer to Maun (three hours) for your connecting flight home.
Requires a spirit of adventure and some degree of fitness, as the trip might consist of many activities or long journeys. These adventures involve walking, trekking, hiking, cycling, rafting, sea kayaking, or driving for long hours, at times for up to six to eight hours a day at a steady pace. The maximum altitude is 3000m, so it requires you to be reasonably physically fit because you may be travelling in extreme weather conditions. The trips are usually 6 to 12 days in duration.
