Stay close to the Falls to begin with, but still close enough to visit the Falls with complete ease, then venture into Botswana for 2 nights staying on the banks of the majestic Chobe River.
Spend the first 2 nights just 8 minutes from the majestic Victoria Falls. As one of the closest hotels 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 Cresta Mowana Lodge, a short drive from the Chobe National Park where 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 also spectacular.

Arrive into Victoria Falls Airport. After you have gone through Immigration, collected your luggage and cleared Customs, you need to make your way into the Arrivals Hall where your driver will meet you. You will then be transferred to Ilala Lodge.
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 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.
