4 NIGHT VICTORIA FALLS & CHOBE GETAWAY

VICTORIA FALLS, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar and creates a magnificent spray of water visible for miles – hence the local name ‘mosi oa tunya’ meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’.

CHOBE is an area famous for its abundance of elephants, a variety of predators, herds of buffalo and possibly even roan and sable antelope. In the rainy season (Nov – Apr) the game is much less concentrated at the river as the wildlife spreads throughout the greater area of Chobe National Park due to availability of surface water from nearby pans. This assists the vegetation on the river banks to recover from the massive herds attracted to the area in the dry months. The summer rains bring beautiful wild flowers, exquisite scenery, impressive bird life and an abundance of young animals usually born around November/December. The spectacular Chobe sunsets alone are worth a visit to the area.
