Sanctuary Best of Botswana and Victoria Falls Holiday

Inspirational safari to Zambia and Botswana

The 'full monty' safari, see two of Botswana’s most game-rich wildlife reserves as well as the mighty Victoria Falls, all whilst staying in luxury Sanctuary Retreat's properties.

You will start in Zambia at Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma, 12km upstream from Victoria Falls. Try rafting the mighty Zambezi River, visit a local school and village or head out on a walking safari. To finish your trip in style why not take a spectacular helicopter flight over the Falls. Next is Sanctuary Chilwero Lodge at the edge of the magnificent Chobe National Park. Chobe supports the largest concentration of elephants in Africa enjoyed from sunset cruises along the Chobe River. Next, the Okavango Delta splitting your time between 2 different camps, Baines and Chief’s. Fill your days with game drives or, water levels permitting, you can float along the Delta in a traditional Mokoro dugout canoe.
