Classic Botswana with Victoria Falls

Incredible wildlife and plenty of adventure

Explore two iconic destinations in style. Known as “The smoke that thunders” by locals, Victoria Falls is an enthralling spectacle, and you’ll stay at a luxurious lodge in Zambia that’s set away from the crowds. Game drives, sunset cruises and a tour of the Falls are included at no extra cost.

From here head to Botswana, Africa’s premier safari destination, for more adventure, such as walking safaris, boat safaris, game drives, mokoro excursions, and hot air balloon rides. Stay in exclusive camps on remote private concessions and look out for creatures great and small, from tiny malachite kingfishers to large elephant herds and rare antelope.
