Day 1
You will be met at Livingstone Airport and transferred to your hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River, near the mighty Victoria Falls.
  
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains and is a magnificent sight.
 
Please note that the Zambian side of the falls dries up in October and November, when it is better to visit the Zimbabwean side.
Day 2
Today enjoy a optional guided walking tour of the Zambian side of the mighty Victoria Falls and enjoy the magnificent views.
 
Afterwards you can participate in many optional activities such as a helicopter flight over the falls, an elephant-back safari or simply relax by the swimming pool and enjoy the facilities of your hotel.
  
In the late afternoon we suggest an optional Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see hippos, crocodiles and abundant bird life.
 
Note: We suggest you take your own raincoat for walking in the rainforest, as those on hire are well used. There is also the option of crossing over to the Zimbabwean side of the falls for postcard views (passport and uni-visa required). This is essential in the dry water season.
Day 3
At leisure to relax at your hotel near the magnificent Victoria Falls.
  
Many optional activities are on offer, such as a helicopter flight over the falls, an elephant-back safari or a game drive in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
 
Adrenalin seekers can participate in many adventure activities such as canoeing in the gentler rapids above the falls, abseiling or white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), or bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
 
You can also take an excursion to view the Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side (passport and univisa required).
Day 4
Transfer 2-hours by road and ferry to the Botswana border at Kasane. After completing immigration formalities, continue to your game lodge overlooking the Chobe River.  
 
Chobe National Park is Botswana’s premier wildlife reserve and is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, where four African countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.  After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling safari drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a ranger.
 
Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, antelope and other river-based wildlife today. Later dine overlooking the river in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
Day 5
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive  into the great Chobe National Park. This region is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life.
  
Chobe is home to vast herds of buffalo and elephant, as well as numerous other species which roam in profusion and diversity. During the dry season, vast elephant herds migrate from both south and north to congregate in their thousands along the Chobe River – the largest concentration of elephants in the whole of Africa! Also hope to see lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting animals before returning to your lodge.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool before enjoying an optional game viewing boat ride on the Chobe River to give you a completely different wildlife perspective. Tiger fishing can also be arranged on the river.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Please note: some lodges provide full day game viewing, combining boat rides with land-based game drives.
 
Day 6
Today transfer to the Chobe River for the ferry to Zambia. After completing immigration formalities, transfer 2-hours to Livingstone Airport for your light aircraft flight to Lusaka and connecting flight to Mfuwe.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to the famous South Luangwa National Park. Check into your lodge in this renowned wildlife wilderness, before setting out in the late afternoon on a bush walk or open top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger. Game is most easily sighted in the dry season from April to October, but the park is at its most beautiful in the first half of the year after the rains of the wet season.
Day 7
South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s most famous wildlife park, covering an area in excess of 5,600 square miles (9,050 square kilometres). Sustained by the great Luangwa River the park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The changing seasons add to the park’s richness, ranging from dry bare bushveld in the winter to a lush green in the summer in this pristine wildlife wilderness.
  
Rise early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view wildlife either on foot or from an open top safari vehicle in this great conservation area. With over 60 different animal species, the concentration of game around the Luangwa River and its ox bow lagoons is amongst the highest in Africa, including four of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard (sadly rhino has been poached to extinction). Also search for zebra, giraffe, antelope and much more, with leopard sightings being particularly outstanding.
 
Birding is also outstanding with over 400 different species, including large flocks of cranes. From late August to October you can enjoy the amazing spectacle of thousands of southern carmine bee-eaters nesting along the river banks. From November numerous migratory birds start to arrive to exploit the feeding opportunities presented during the warm rainy season - including red chested cuckoo, hobbies and birds of prey such as steppe buzzards that travel from as far afield as Russia.
 
After relaxing at your lodge during the heat of the day, in the late afternoon set out on another game activity with your ranger. In the evening relax by the campfire under a balmy African sky and hear the untamed sounds of wildlife all around.
Day 8
After some final game viewing, transfer to Mfuwe Airport for your flight home.
