Day 1
You will be met at Victoria Falls Airport and transferred to your hotel near the mighty Zambezi River.
 
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, but they are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
Note: As there is no lifting equipment at the airport, you will be carried on and off the aircraft using an aisle chair. Accommodation is also not fully accessible & very limited.
Day 2
Today we visit the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest, which offers magnificent views.
 
Afterwards you may wish to visit Elephants Walk, a small crafts complex across the road from The Kingdom hotel, where you can see talented local artists and sculptors at work and support them by buying one of their items. Alternatively you can participate in various optional activities, such as a helicopter flight over the falls or an elephant interaction.
 
In the late afternoon enjoy a 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 the rainforest, as those on hire are well used. On the Zambezi cruise you will need to be lifted into the boat, so this excursion is only suitable for manual wheelchairs. There is no accessible toilet on board.
Days 3 To 4
At leisure to relax at your hotel in the town of Victoria Falls on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
 
Many optional activities are available in this small town, where adrenalin seekers come to participate in adventure activities such as canoeing down the Zambezi River, white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), abseiling and bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
Day 5
Today transfer 2-hours to the Botswana border at Kasane. After completing immigration formalities, connect with your onward transfer to your game lodge situated near 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 a boat ride on the Chobe River, which is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life. 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. Afterwards dine in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide
 
Note: If you are unable to negotiate steps, you will need to be lifted down to the jetty and onto the boat. As such this holiday is not suitable for guests over a certain weight limit or power chairs.
Day 6
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with a lodge ranger.
  
Chobe National Park 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.
 
Bird life along the river is also plentiful and you can hope to see a Fish eagle, Tawny eagle, African openbill stork, Maribou stork, Sacred ibis, Pied kingfisher, Cattle egret, Great Egret, Spur-winged goose and much more, including Botswana's national bird - the glorious Lilac-breaster roller.
 
In the afternoon, enjoy another game-viewing boat ride on the Chobe River.
   
Note: You need some upper body strength for this safari, as you will need to be lifted into the front seat of the game viewing vehicle and into the boat. Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives.
Day 7
Today enjoy two more game activities in Chobe National Park.
 
Activities on offer vary by lodge, but usually include fishing on the Zambezi River, addition game drives in Chobe National Park or boat rides on the river, which gives you a completely different wildlife perspective. Some lodges offer excursions to a Namibian village across the river to see their culture and way of life, with immigration formalities at both Kasane and on the Namiban side.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way – including the spectacular Southern Cross.
Day 8
Transfer to Kasane Airport for your flight home.
