Day to Day Itinerary

Days 1-2

See the grandeur of Victoria Falls

Arrive at Livingstone Airport where you will be met and transferred to Sussi & Chuma Lodge, an exceptionally luxurious accommodation set on the banks of the Zambezi River. Here you'll spend two wonderful nights in an intimate treehouse, built in the canopy of giant ebony trees.

The lodge has exceptional views of the Zambezi River from its private deck, and you'll be keeping a lookout for the elephants who frequent the lodge's gardens and the river.

There is a wide range of exciting activities to choose from including tours of mighty Victoria Falls and a trip to Samonga village for a cultural insight into the region. There are of course all the adventure activities of Victoria Falls such as bungee jumping and white-water rafting but there're plenty of chances to see wildlife while you're on on canoe safaris, sunset cruises and game drives - and you can even go on an elephant-back safari.

For something more relaxing, visit the lodge's Safari Spa for wellness and pampering treatments.

Days 3-4

Go on a sundowner boat safari

Today you will first be transferred by road and then by boat to cross the border into Botswana. It's then just a short drive through Kasane village to Chobe Chilwero, a superior safari lodge located on the escarpment overlooking the Chobe River floodplains.

Like your previous accommodation, Chobe Chilwero is where you will experience unbridled luxury and comfort. The rooms are sensational and gourmet cuisine paired with superb wines every night.

Head out on a sundowner safari cruise on a motorboat or join a 4x4 game drive in search of Chobe's predators and huge elephant herds. It's classic big game country and at no time more than during the late dry season when the herds are concentrated at the river. The bird watching is amazing throughout the year, and it's a great opportunity to see aquatic wildlife such as hippo and crocodile too.

Day 5

Take your African memories home

Transfer by boat and road back across the border to Livingstone Airport where you will catch your connecting flight back home.
