  • Day 1- 3:

    One of the seven natural wonders of the world Victoria Falls is a breath taking sight throughout the year especially from the Zimbabwean side. The water cascades over the edge towards you forming huge clouds of spray which give them its local name Mosi-a-Tunya – “The Smoke that Thunders”. Staying at Ilala lodge you are within walking distance of the Falls and all the other attractions that the town has to offer. From bungee jumping to white water rafting and elephant back safaris to high tea at the Vic Falls Hotel…there is something for everyone.
  • Day 3 - 5:

    The transfer from Vic falls to The Chobe is a very easy one by road taking around 2 hours in an air conditioned vehicle. You will be taken to the amazing Mowana Lodge which will be your home for the next two nights. Positioned right on the river Mowana is a fabulous 4* lodge with amazing gardens and a world class spa. Mowana is also the base from which we launch our photo boats making it very convenient for you each morning and afternoon. Each morning and afternoon you will be taken into the Chobe National Park by our expert photo guides on either the photo boat or the unimog. Should you require we will happily lend you one of our cameras and lenses to use and the guides will be on hand to show you how to make the most of each photo opportunity.
  • Day 5 - 7:

    After brunch on day 5 you will be collected from the Mowana Jetty and transferred across the river to The Pangolin Voyager houseboat which is moored on the Namibian side of the Chobe River. The Voyager travels up and down the Chobe River utilising three different mooring points and exploring the further reaches of the Chobe River from Kasane to Serondela. This five bedroomed houseboat is wonderfully luxurious and you will have access to photo boats and other tenders to do as much photography, game viewing and perhaps even some Tiger Fishing during your stay. Meals are taken on the middle deck as we cruise down the river and there is an upper deck with plenty of loungers should you wish to spend some time topping up on that tan with a good book. After brunch on the last day you have the choice of either being transferred back to Victoria Falls or perhaps flying directly from Kasane airport (on the Botswana side) to your next destination.
