For those wanting a trip where it is all about 'location location location', then this package is for you. Stay close to the Falls to begin with, but still close enough to visit the Falls with complete ease, then venture to the only lodge situated within the actual Chobe National Park iself, offering unrivalled access to the network of roads and river frontage.
Spend the first 2 nights just 8 minutes from the majestic Victoria Falls. As the closest hotel to the Falls, the spray makes for a perfect backdrop during your stay. On your full day, enjoy a guided tour of the Falls as well as a sunset boat cruise along the mighty Zambezi River.
Your next 2 nights are at Chobe Game Lodge - Botswana's premier venue for guests looking for a perfect base to explore Chobe National Park and the Chobe River. Owing to the location of Chobe Game Lodge inside the Chobe National Park, early morning game drives set off as soon as the Park opens, giving you the best chance of tracking predators while they are still active. The afternoon drives depart the lodge in the late afternoon, only returning at Park closure time after sunset, thus maximising the time you spend enjoying those special sightings.
Chobe's wildlife roams in abundance and diversity, so as well as seeing the largest concentration of elephant in Africa, you may also get to encounter buffalo, lion, leopard, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope. The birding is spectacular.
No Chobe safari is complete without experiencing the beauty of the Chobe River and its incredible wildlife by boat. The riverboats are specifically designed to ensure each passenger can take in the magnificent Chobe views in complete comfort from anywhere on the boat.
All of the boats at Chobe Game Lodge are solar-powered safari boats - a clean and quiet way to enjoy a boat safari. Several of the game viewing vehicles are silent, CO2 emission-free electric vehicles designed to further enhance your Chobe safari experience.

Wild animals are often seen grazing on the hotel lawns as the National Park borders the front of the property. Diners can see the spray and hear the thunder from the Victoria Falls while they enjoy al-fresco dining under the starry African skies in the evenings.
Today enjoy a morning tour of the Falls from the Zimbabwe side. A knowledgeable guide will take you on an unforgettable experience through the Victoria Falls rainforest, a journey that not only affords a view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World but provides a great deal of interesting facts about the geology, wildlife and history of Africa's most famous landmark.
This afternoon you will be collected for your afternoon sundowner cruise on the mighty Zambezi River. Relax with a sundowner and snacks as you gaze out onto the banks of the river, and have your camera ready to capture one of the most amazing sunsets in Africa.
This morning, you will be transferred to the border post between Zimbabwe and Botswana, where you will complete the border formalities and cross into Botswana.

Your days will be spent exploring the Chobe National Park from open 4x4 safari vehicles and boat cruises along the Chobe River, led by a professional guiding team.
