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.

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.  

We offer an exciting selection of optional tours: In our opinion, a helicopter tour over the falls is one of the best ways to experience them. Only from the air can you see the falls in their entirety. We also highly recommend a visit to Elephant Café – it’s an experience of a lifetime and the food is quite simply enchanting! A sunset trip on the Zambezi River will remain etched in your memory forever, and a train ride on board The Royal Livingstone Express will take you back to the colonial era. The choice is yours.

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.

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.

The tropical island of Mauritius is one of the most fascinating islands in the Indian Ocean and an absolute gem if you are travelling with children. The climate is pleasant all year round, and the local people are remarkably friendly and accommodating. The island is surrounded by crystal clear water and beautiful, child-friendly beaches that are protected by a brightly coloured coral reef – making this the perfect place to go snorkelling. Mauritius is blessed with magnificent countryside featuring lush forests, small lagoons and waterfalls that crash down the mountainsides.

The island is ideal for all the family, and there are all kinds of things to see and do both on land and on the water. For example, just 8 km from Flic-en-Flac beach, you will find Casela Nature Park, where you can see giant tortoises, zebras, lions, giraffes, apes and 1,500 birds. You can also try riding a Segway, walk along rope bridges and much more besides.
