Fly to Kasane for the Chobe River boat cruise. The area is famous for its unique species such as elephant, puku, hippo and large crocodile. Enjoy a light lunch on the boat. We then take a road transfer to Toka Leya Camp, Livingstone.
The grand finale is a guided tour of the Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. At 1 708 metres (5 604 ft) wide, it is the largest curtain of water in the world. We then bid farewell to our adventure and transfer to Livingstone Airport.
