6 Days Stanley & Livingstone’s Africa Tour Package from $2880/-

STANLEY & LIVINGSTONE’S AFRICA
6 days from USD 2 880

A unique safari to Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia, with Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park, including an exclusive safari cruise on the Chobe River onboard the most luxurious river cruise vessel in Africa, the Zambezi Queen!

This tour gives you the opportunity to explore the Victoria Falls from both the Zimbabwean side and the Zambian side. Also, the tour offers you ample time for safari experiences in one of Africa’s absolutely greatest national parks, Chobe. You will explore the African wildlife in the mornings and in the afternoons – on both land and river based excursions. It is difficult to get any closer to the real Africa in a more comfortable and relaxing way!

Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Day 1: Arrival in Victoria Falls: Welcome Dinner
Arrive at Victoria Falls International Airport (Zimbabwe), arrival is usually in the early afternoon.

Immigration procedures for Zimbabwe: most nationalities qualify for a visa granted at the point of entry into Zimbabwe, on payment of the visa fee. A double or multiple entry visa costs between US$75-130, depending on nationality. For a group needing to purchase Zimbabwe visas on the spot, it usually takes about half an hour to 45 minutes to get though immigration (but be patient, if the flight is full, it might take an hour – the airport is very small!). After immigration, meet and greet, done by Albatros’ Victoria Falls staff.

Transfer to Victoria Falls Hotel, the classic “Grand Old Lady” of the Falls. A Welcome Drink and canapés/snack will be offered and served on the terrace with stunning views of the Victoria Falls bridge. Later enjoy a welcome-dinner at the Jungle Junction Restaurant.

Transfer time from Vicotria Falls International Airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.
Note: We can also arrange a transfer from Kasane International Airport. Albatros also can offer very good deals on Air Botswana, flying directly from Johannesburg to Kasane (and return) on Monday, Wednesday, Fridays. From Kasane International Airport there is approx. 1 hours drive to Victoria Falls.

Day 2: Vic Falls to Chobe National Park: Tour of the falls, evening game drive
In the morning, after breakfast, we do a guided tour of the Falls. This tour normally takes about 2 hours and takes you through the rainforest and to the major view points.

Depart Victoria Falls and drive to the Botswana-border. The last 10 km after immigration to the Chobe Marina Lodge in Botswana, we usually change to open safari vehicles. The border is easy. If we have all the details of clients (i.e. passport no, expiry, full name, nationality, DOB) we do a manifest and it will be 15 minutes on the Zimbabwe side. For Botswana, immigration can be a bit slow, but it usually does not take more than 30 minutes.

Check-in at Chobe Marina Lodge around lunch time. Welcome drinks and lunch, with time to relax before an afternoon game drive in Chobe National Park (including sundowner drinks). The safari game drives in the Chobe National Park are done in 10-seater open safari game drive vehicles and offer excellent game viewing opportunities, actually some of the best in Africa! It is possible to see nearly all the major species: giraffe, elephant, zebra, impala, tsessebe, roan, sable, wildebeest, kudu, buffalo, waterbuck, warthog, eland and accompanying predators including lion, hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox – and possibly (rare though) even leopard, cheetah and wild dog.  In the evening, everything starts moving, the predators wake up and get ready for the nights’ hunt, all Chobe’s buffalo and elephants move towards the river by the hundreds (or rather thousands) and when it’s getting really dark, we turn on our search light to catch the shiny eyes in the bush and the wildlife moving around.

After the game drive, dinner at Chobe Marina Lodge.

Today, your transfer drive (Victoria Falls – Chobe) will be approx. 3 – 3½ hours, depending on the border and immigration procedures.

Day 3: Chobe National Park: Safari game drive and Chobe River Safari Cruise
We will drive out on a safari game drive in the early morning, and we will go to different places – of course taking into consideration where the game is to be found! There is a big difference between morning and evening safaris: The morning offers the best chance of seeing the wildlife feeding and drinking at the water holes and the river. The chilliness, scent and light of the dew-covered morning savannah is absolutely incredible!

After breakfast, check-out and transfer (in open safari game drive vehicles) to Kasane to embark the Zambezi Queen. The river-transfer to the Zambezi Queen is done by smaller tender boats (The Queen is equipped with 5 of these). We usually make a genuine river safari out of this first transfer, too. Possibly really close encounters with hippos and crocs…fantastic to experience the great difference in land and water based safari! Upon reaching the boat around noon, check-in and Namibia-immigration procedures on board (works smoothly, we have our “own” Albatros immigration officer coming on board), and lunch.

Later in the afternoon we depart for water based game viewing. Return to the Queen in the early evening for dinner.

Day 4: Zambezi Queen: Safari game drive or boat based game viewing. Optional cultural village tour
Choose between a half day safari game drive OR game viewing from the boat. (Depending on what you have chosen to do the day before, you may prefer to stay at the Queen and relax). Return to the Zambezi Queen before lunch, when the boat departs down the Chobe River. Arrive at the overnight spot in the midst of the afternoon. Later depart for water based game viewing or a cultural village tour.

Return to the Queen in the early evening, for a (weather permitting) boma-dinner.

Day 5: Chobe to Victoria Falls: Farewell Dinner
In the early morning and during breakfast, the Queen moves up the river towards its home base at Kasane.

After breakfast, transfer to Victoria Falls OR Livingstone International Airport for onward travel.
