Victoria Falls, Botswana & Cape Town

Waterfall, safari and city. Discover the three highlights of southern Africa in one tour: the mighty Victoria Falls, the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the wonderful metropolis of Cape Town.

Choose this tour because…

This tour combines three of the absolute highlights of southern Africa: the mighty Victoria Falls on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, a safari in Botswana’s amazing Chobe National Park and vibrant, scenic Cape Town in South Africa. Water, safari and city break in one and the same holiday.

Before even landing, you may be lucky enough to catch your first glimpse of one of the world’s largest waterfalls. It probably looks most like a cloud rising from the ground, and that’s not far wrong. The spray from the waterfalls often rises several hundred metres into the air. You will have ample opportunity to explore the area around Victoria Falls before heading to Botswana.

In Botswana, you will spend three nights just outside the stunning Chobe National Park, which is home to the largest number of elephants in the world. Chobe is a fantastic safari destination, as you have traditional safaris on land in the national park and the possibility of water-based safaris on the Chobe River. The wildlife is rich and diverse.

The tour rounds off in beautiful Cape Town, where you have the option to buy a variety of excursions, all depending on what you want to see and do. Option of extending the tour to include a beach holiday in Mauritius.

Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Departure from the UK

Today is departure day, and you fly to Zambia with stopover(s) on the way.

Day 2: Arrival Victoria Falls

On your arrival in Livingstone, Zambia, you are picked up from the airport by our local partner and driven to your hotel. You will spend three nights on the banks of the Zambezi.  

Days 3-4: Experiences at Victoria Falls

The days at Victoria Falls are spent at your leisure. However, we recommend that you book a couple of excursions from home as they are extremely popular, and in some places there are limits to the number of participants on the tours. 

It goes without saying that a walk around the waterfalls is a must. We particularly recommend the walk on Knife Edge Bridge from which you get a unique view of the waterfalls. During the rainy season (around November–April), you should be prepared to get pretty much soaked through on the walk. But the air temperature is warm, so it’s actually fun to feel the forces of nature at such close quarters!  

There is a lot to see and do. The area is a veritable activity mecca offering a wealth of experiences.  

Optional tours
Day 5: Transport from Victoria Falls to Chobe National Park in Botswana

You will be picked up from the hotel and set off on the drive to Botswana, which takes around 4–5 hours, depending on the waiting time at the border crossing in Kazungula. Kazungula is a small village located right on the banks of the Zambezi River where no fewer than four different countries meet: Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. You will head from Zambia into Botswana, and a local ferry will take you across the river. You have to walk into Botswana yourself, and you will be asked to step on a mat (with your shoes on) containing a chemical that cleanses your shoes of any contagious diseases (for plants and animals). It’s a somewhat slow, but very African experience!  

You will spend three nights in Kasane, the main town at Chobe. 

Day 6: Chobe National Park

Today, you will experience the national park. This day features a relaxing boat ride on the river, where you have excellent opportunities to get up close to hippopotamuses, in addition to a completely traditional game drive on land.  

Sustainable tourism is a focus area of the Botswanan government , so you will experience unspoiled, exciting nature with fantastic and abundant wildlife. In Chobe National Park, you are in with a chance of seeing buffaloes, elephants, lions, cheetahs and leopards. Keep an eye out for the incredible bird life on this tour as well – including Botswana’s gorgeous national bird, the lilac-breasted roller. 

In the evening, you are back at the lodge, where dinner awaits you. 

Day 7: Chobe National Park

Today is spent at your leisure. Perhaps you would simply like to relax by the pool and enjoy the view of the river? It is also possible to buy optional excursions to the national park, both from home and at the lodge.  

Day 8: Kasane – Cape Town

Departure from the hotel to the airport after breakfast. Unless there is an elephant in the road (a not uncommon problem in Kasane!), it takes about 7 minutes to drive to the airport. 

From here, you will fly to Cape Town in South Africa, where our local representative is waiting for you at the airport. You will be driven to the hotel where you will spend the last four nights of your African adventure. 

Days 9-11: Cape Town

The days you spend in Cape Town are at your leisure, and there is plenty to see and do here. 

Cape Town is located at the foot of the beautiful famous Table Mountain, from which you can enjoy the view of the Cape of Good Hope, wine country and the dark blue Atlantic Ocean with Nelson Mandela’s prison island, Robben Island. A visit to Robben Island is on the list of “must-dos” in Cape Town.  

The central place for all visitors to Cape Town is the area around the Waterfront, where you can easily spend a whole day browsing in shops, watching entertaining performances, drinking coffee, laughing at the lumbering seals and eating ice cream. 

Cape Town also offers a host of historical sights, fascinating buildings, interesting museums and lots of good restaurants.  

Day 12: Departure day

The time has come to say goodbye to South Africa. You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the airport, from which you fly to the UK, with connecting flight(s) along the way. 

Day 13: Arrival back home

You land in the UK after an exciting and eventful holiday.
