DAY 4

VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE | “THE SMOKE THAT THUNDERS”

Drive to Zimbabwe to join your private guide on an awe-inspiring exploration of Victoria Falls. Plummeting 354 feet, the falls cast up the mist that inspired their original name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders). Continue to Chobe National Park in Botswana and settle into your lodge for expansive views across the Chobe River. This afternoon, set out on a river cruise or game drive that includes the opportunity to see elephants — 120,000 live in the park — impalas, buffalo and possibly lions. Return to your lodge, relax and enjoy a freshly prepared meal. Later, drift to sleep beneath the stars, serenaded by the sounds of Africa.

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK, BOTSWANA | MAGNIFICENT WATERING HOLE

Set out on a game drive at sunrise to catch the animals at the start of their day, when they are hungry and hence most active. You may see hippos, crocodiles, leopards or even a colony of carmine bee-eaters. Visit the village of Kasane, to see how the Dipetsana Women’s Bike Shop, a project supported by A&K Philanthropy, benefits the local community. Later, embark on a Chobe River safari cruise and watch for elephants that come down to drink and play in the water.
