Chobe National Park
Chobe National Park is well known for the beautiful Savuti region, a definite highlight on this section of our safari vacation in Botswana. On your Chobe safari, you will experience an incredible array of wildlife and birds. Witness one of the largest elephant herds in Africa and if you are fortunate possibly the annual zebra migration.
Hwange National Park
Hwange National Park boasts a tremendous selection of wildlife and over 100 species of birds. On your safari to Hwange look out for the 105 mammal species, including 19 large herbivores and eight large carnivores. All of the big five are found in Hwange. There’s also a good chance of spotting African Wild Dog in the park.
Victoria Falls has been called many things but is probably best described by its local Kololo name of ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ which translates to “The smoke that thunders”. It is a truly spectacular sight to see as it drops over 100 metres into the Zambezi gorge below. It is the largest waterfall in the world and a must see on a safari to Zimbabwe.
