Victoria Falls & Chobe

When David Livingstone first set eyes upon the Victoria Falls in 1855 he wrote in his journal “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight..”, and named the Falls in honour of his queen. The local Leya people call them “Mosi oa Tunya”- Smoke That Thunders.

On this thrilling 7-day tour you will see some of the great highlights of Africa, and also have plenty of time to relax and enjoy just ‘being there’. We fly to Livingstone in Zambia, where we are based at a comfortable hotel, central to a host of local attractions. Activities are many and varied and we’ll enjoy sights of the famous Victoria Falls from the Zambian side, and with a visit to the Zimbabwe side for those who wish. We’ll visit Livingstone town with its lively markets, memorabilia of David Livingstone, and faded remnants of the colonial era, and travel out into the Zambian countryside to the small town of Mukuni, to enjoy some local colour and learn more about the rural lifstyle in Africa. One evening we’ll take a cruise on the Zambezi, with dinner on board. You can choose optional extras such as riding an elephant, helicopter or microlight flights over the Victoria Falls, or even bungee jumping!

We leave Livingstone to drive some 70 kms west along the Zambezi to the Kazungula ferry, near the famous spot where 4 countries meet. Here we cross the river – not on the ferry itself but in small motor boats – and enter Botswana. We stay at a beautiful lodge near the Chobe River. In fact, just spending time at the lodge is a delight in itself – sitting and watching the river and the animals and birds that make their home here. During our stay we take game drives by 4×4 vehicle in the world-famous Chobe Game Reserve, and ‘game cruises’ on the Chobe River, viewing from the boat the herds of elephant and other wildlife that abound. After a relaxing few days we return to Livingstone for our flight home. As usual Landscape Tours will facilitate your travel arrangements so you can relax and enjoy this venture into Wild Africa!

Latest comment (Tour of 5 July 2017)

“Please would you add my name to The Tjomps Rautenbach Fan Club! What an amazing guide he was – everything he did for us Grey Haired old ladies (nearly said Old Ducks) was done with very easy considerate efficiency – nothing was too much trouble for him and never once did he make any of us feel that we were a nuisance when once again he had to help us stagger up some steps or be helped from a boat. He was always one step ahead to get things right to ensure that we were comfortable and having fun. And having fun we did! His knowledge of the country and animals was amazing and I know I learnt a lot.

Congratulations also to whoever put the trip together – it was constructed with just the right amount of interesting things to do plus the right amount of free time as well. The accommodation, particularly at Chobe, was great. I arrived back in Cape Town last night with a big smile on my face feeling totally stress free from having had a brilliant, magical trip which I was fortunate enough to share with some really nice people. So a very big thank you to all at Landscape Tours who organized such an amazing experience – I hope to be fortunate enough to do another Landscape Tour in the not too distant future!”
