This 2-day overnight safari is perfect for those visiting Victoria Falls on a short visit who still want to experience the African Bush. Stay overnight in the Chobe National Park with your guide and his crew. Enjoy an animal packed viewing adventure without ringing phones, internet access or cable TV. Simply enjoy the night sounds, open fire cooked meals, served under the stars in a private bush campsite.
Day One (L/D)For those guests coming from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) you will meet at 8:30am at the Kazungula boarder post. From there your Botswana guide will assist you through the immigration formalities. A short briefing will instruct you on some pertinent facts such as safety, and some regional information. At 9:30am guests will board a boat and commence a 3-hour gaming cruise into the Chobe National park. The river cruise is considered one of the highlights of the trip, as one gets the opportunity to get up close and personal with fantastic birds, hippos, crocodiles, and of course elephants and African buffalos that make their way down to the river for the water. The boat cruise ends at 12:30pm and a sumptuous buffet lunch follows at the Chobe Safari Lodge (or similar). There is an opportunity to do some last minute shopping in Kasane, as there are no shops within the Park. An afternoon game drive follows and this is the best time to see Chobe’s large herbivores making their way to and from the river. This drive will take you to the camp shortly before sunset for drinks around the camp fire and dinner. Day Two (B/L)Rise and shine, wake-up early with a cup of hot and refreshing tea or coffee. After a quick continental breakfast head off on an early morning game drive. This time of the day is best for finding the big cats and other nocturnal animals while they are still active and hunting. If luck is on your side you will even find them eating their previous nights` kills. Around mid to late morning return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and the opportunity to take a refreshing bush bucket shower. When the day starts to cool off, break camp and leave out the on the last game drive. You'll be dropped off in Kasane at 4:30pm (for those of our guests staying in Botswana) and in Victoria Falls or Livingstone at 8:00pm
