Unique selling points
Victoria Falls is one of Africa’s natural wonders and a must see for any serious traveller to the region. Chobe, Savuti and Eastern Caprivi have unique ecosystems varying from riverine forest and wooded thickets to lovely river frontage in Eastern Caprivi , Chobe and Zambezi rivers, which lend itself to boat based game viewing, tiger fishing and even lodges set on islands within these magnificent river systems.
Best time to travel
Victoria Falls is a year round destination, it can flood in the summer months with high levels of mist, but still spectacular. In the dry months it still flows over the edge into the gorge below, but is also beautiful sight. Chobe, Savuti and Eastern Caprivi can be hot inbetween October and April, but the game viewing is still good.
