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.
Day 2
Day 3
Today is free to enjoy a range of optional adventure activities available at Victoria Falls.
 
These include thrilling adrenalin-filled zip lining, bridge swinging and bungee jumping from Victoria Falls bridge (advance booking of activities recommended).
Day 4
This morning is free to relax at your hotel or explore the small town of Victoria Falls.
 
In the afternoon (16.00) you will be collected from your hotel and transferred on a 1.5-hour game drive through Zambezi National Park to your rustic mobile bush camp situated on the banks of the Zambezi River about 16 miles (25 km) upstream from Victoria Falls.
 
After drinks on the river bank, relax under the brilliant stars of the southern sky and enjoy a delicious dinner cooked over a roaring campfire.
 
Note: Your walk-in tent will be erected for you and camp beds, mattresses, sheets, pillows and duvets supplied. You will also have a camping water basin (filled with hot water in the morning), paraffin lantern and hand towels. There is a portable toilet and hot water shower in camp. Limited beer, soft drinks and bottled water will be supplied, but if you have specific drink preferences you need to bring your own. From April to August (the winter months) the evenings and early mornings will be very cold, so warm clothing is essential. As space is limited, one soft bag per person is recommended.
Day 5
After breakfast cooked over an open fire and a safety briefing (where you will be required to sign an indemnity form), enjoy the 1-hour game drive upstream to our launch point.
 
We then set out in our canoes and spend the day paddling 11 miles (18 km) downstream through gentle grade one and two rapids on the Upper Zambezi - exploring various channels, birding and game viewing along the way. We stop for a picnic lunch at midday, before continuing down the river.
 
In the afternoon arrive we back at camp and transfer to Victoria Falls, where you will be dropped off at your hotel at the end of your canoe safari.
Day 6
Today enjoy the adrenalin thrill of White Water Rafting down the Zambezi River below the thundering Victoria Falls. Prepared to get wet and wild, as you raft through turbulent Grade 5 rapids and the scenic Batoka Gorge.
 
Water levels on the Zambezi River are completely dependent on the rainfall, with the low water season (mid July to end of January) generally regarded as the best time to raft. During this period rafting starts at rapid 1, which is below the boiling pot at the foot of the mighty Victoria Falls, and finishes at rapid 19. As the water levels drop, rocks get closer to the surface and the white water really starts to boil and crash through the gorge, increasing the intensity of the rafting.
 
During the high water season (February to March / May to mid July) the first 10 rapids are not safe to raft so you will start at rapid 11 and finish at rapid 23. White water rafting is usually closed from early April until mid June.
 
Note: $10 river fee payable locally. Wear a swimming costume under comfortable clothes that can get wet and will dry easily, sandals that are securely attached to your feet (not flip flops) & sunscreen. Take a bag with a change of clothes & shoes that will be stored for you, so you can change afterwards. Minimum age is 15 years.
Day 7
Today take a shared 2-hour transfer to the Botswana border at Kasane. After completing immigration formalities, continue to your game lodge 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.
Day 8
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.
 
In the afternoon, enjoy another game-viewing boat ride on the Chobe River.
Day 9
Transfer to Kasane Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
 
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 10
Today is free for independent sightseeing in Cape Town.
 
We recommend you purchase a day pass onboard the convenient Hop-Off Bus, which stops at all Cape Town’s key sights and beaches. The "Red Route" bus stops at the Table Mountain base station, where you can buy a ticket to ascend by cable car and enjoy one of the world’s most famous views. Continue to Camps Bay beach and the many attractions of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Day 11
Early morning collection from your hotel (04.00 to 07.30, depending on the tides) for your 2-hour transfer to the small village of Gansbaai  for Shark Cage Diving to see the great white sharks of False Bay.
 
After a safety briefing, transfer by boat for the 20-minute ride to Dyer Island and Shark Alley for the chance to view the fearsome Great White Sharks which feed on the resident colony of Cape Fur seals. View these surface-feeding predators from the boat or enter the cage with snorkel or scuba equipment.
 
Whales should also be seen in season (July to November) as well as African penguins, seals, dolphins, cormorants and many other bird species. Waterproof jackets and dive equipment will be supplied on the boat, but remember to bring your own towel. Return to shore 5 hours later after a truly exhilarating day at sea, with mid-afternoon return transfer to Cape Town.
 
Note: You will be contacted the day before to finalise your pick up time.
Day 12
At leisure to relax and explore the "Mother City" of Cape Town.
 
Many optional activities are available in this beautiful city. You can visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned (advance booking essential in season) and explore the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
 
You can also take the Hop Off bus (Blue Route) to visit world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens, enjoy a city tour or simply relax on golden Camps Bay Beach. Day tours can also be taken to the winelands of Stellenbosch & Franschhoek.
Day 13
