This 10-day Victoria Falls-Botswana African Adventure has been created especially for you to encompass everything one could want in an African Safari of this type and, if you desire, to fit in perfectly with plans to continue on to Cape Town South Africa which we can arrange for you. It combines a visit to the majestic Victoria Falls, Game Drives in National Parks, including the Okavango Delta in Botswana where one can expect to see wildlife from the land and water including Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Leopards, Zebras, Gazelles and Hippos as well as hundreds of species of birds.

Day 1: Today you will arrive at Livingstone Airport from your African arrival destination of Johannesburg Tambo International Airport (Note: the flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone is not included in pricing as it is probably less expensive to include it as part of your international ticket.) Upon arrival at Livingstone and clearing customs and immigration you will be met by a representative of Infinite Safari Adventures and driven to Tongabezi Lodge where you will then take a short (approx. 30 minute) boat ride to Sindabezi Island (FB including non-premium drinks, lodge activities and laundry service), Tongabezi’s island retreat in the middle of the Zambezi River. With all the creature comforts you can ask for (including a bathtub outdoors!) Sindabezi will feel like an escape from it all. Here you can relax in your private island paradise. This award winning eco-friendly camp, whose owners give back to the local community, boasts just 5 thatched cottages.
Day 2: Wake up to birds singing and perhaps elephants coming to the river to drink. Make your way to visit Victoria Falls one of the natural wonders of the world and “discovered” by Dr. David Livingstone.
