Victoria Falls and Okavango Delta Journey

Inspirational natural wonders vacation to Zambia and Botswana

This fly-in trip takes you on a journey to the magnificent Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, as well as a safari in the incredible Okavango Delta in Botswana. Amazing wildlife viewing in the remote wilderness of the Delta is the perfect accompaniment to an action-packed few days at Victoria Falls.

Begin in Zimbabwe where you will get to see one of the 7 natural wonders of the world in all its glory. Aside from visits to Victoria Falls, the area offers an abundance of activities from sunset boat cruises and bungee jumping to helicopter tours and white-water rafting. Fall asleep to the sounds of the Zambezi River in your tented suite at Old Drift Lodge. It's then off to combine Machaba Camp and Gomoti Plains Camp in Botswana's incredible Okavango Delta. Both camps are intimate classic safari camps in two different areas of the Delta. The Okavango Delta is Africa's premier wildlife area. The size of the herds and the variety of animal species are spectacular. Highlights include the buffalo and elephant herds and the predatory leopards, lions, and packs of African wild dogs. Explore the area on day and night gamed drives, walking safaris, and mokoro expeditions.
