From the widest cascade of water on Earth, Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls; to the pools, pans, and plains of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, and mahogany forests of Chobe National Park

This brilliant tour in Zimbabwe and Botswana is bookended by one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Victoria Falls, twice as wide and twice as deep as Niagara, where 600 million litres of water per-minute crash over the Zambezi cataract. From here we drive to Botswana’s Chobe National Park, home to the world’s largest population of elephants.

The wild and wonderful Okavango Delta is the setting for the Dinare concession, at the edge of Moremi National Park. The first reserve in Africa established by local people, to preserve the wildlife, this paradise is visited by numerous bird species; hippos, elephant herds, plains game and predatory big cats. Combining land-based game drives with ‘mokoro’ canoe safaris, the tour is a tale of two seasons, the lush landscapes of January to May, and the dry May to October, when animals gather at waterholes in Chobe and the Delta.
