Day 1 Victoria Falls/Chobe River, Botswana: Travel by road across the border to Botswana (approx 2 hours) to Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River. After time on board to settle in, depart by tender boat for a sunset cruise in search of big game. This is the perfect time of day to make the most of that golden glow of the African sunset by getting some iconic shots of the animals as they gravitate towards the river before night falls. Return to the Zambezi Queen for a welcome drink and delightful dinner. Finish off with an espresso or nightcap at the bar before retiring for the night and nodding off to the sounds of Africa in the distance.
Day 2 Chobe River: Morning activities include water-based safaris, a village tour on the Namibian side of the river, bird watching or fishing.
