Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) in the local Kololo language is aptly described as one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a must see for any visitor to southern Africa.

The package includes a sundowner cruise onboard the African Queen on the Zambezi River, a guided tour of Mukuni Village and 3 hour game drive. There is also an abundance of other activities you can book including walk with the lions tour, elephant back safaris, white water rafting, river cruises, helicopter rides, bungee jumping, jet boating, hiking, canoeing and fishing. If you would like to include any of these activities please contact us for a quote.

Chobe National Park is 11,000 sq km in size and is home to Botswana’s most varied wildlife. Your lodge is located on the riverfront strip along the northern tier of the park and this area contains the largest concentration of wildlife. Chobe is famed with having the largest concentration of elephant in Africa but also have large herds of buffalo and regular sightings of lion, wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope.
