6 Days – Victoria Falls & Botswana

See the Big 5 in the second largest game reserve in Africa

Raft the rapids of the Zambezi River, visit a local orphanage in the town of Victoria Falls, and enjoy the wildlife of Chobe National Park! This six-day jam-packed tour through two beautiful African countries will show you the most exciting parts of Zimbabwe and Botswana. 

Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is certainly the largest waterfall of its kind, standing at 108 metres high and stretching 1,708 metres long. The first time anyone experiences Victoria Falls typically leaves them speechless. During our stay in the town, we explore the Victoria Falls rainforest, a truly special photographic moment, as well as visit a local orphanage, where we cook dinner with the ‘mamas’ and play games with the children.

After saying goodbye to Victoria Falls, we drive across the Botswana-Zimbabwe border and spend a few epic days on safari in the bush of Botswana. Did you know? Chobe National Park has the world’s largest concentration of African elephants, which you will definitely experience for yourself on a boat cruise and safari through the game reserve.
