We loved the boat and game drive. We were on the smaller boat and it was great because we could get closer to shore and get a closer look at the animals. Our guides were great and stopping for us and giving us enough time to take pictures. The lunch was delicious too, good veggie options.
Fantastic day trip from Victoria falls. Every thing went like clockwork. Fantastic guides, spotted numerous wart hogs, baboons, elephants and a giraffe, and that was only on the journey to the border. The border experience was interesting in itself.Fabulous road safari in open side 4x4 and amongst other interesting animals and birds including fish eagle and vulchers , we spotted a pride of lions and the crème de la crème got 12 foot away from a leopold, which apparently is quite rare! We have fabulous photos!The buffet lunch was brilliant at the Chobe lodge and the river trip exciting, 9 of us in a small boat really exciting, we saw numerous hippos, crocs, bird life, cape buffalo, impalas and other wild life too much to mention. You get a bit wet from the spray but that only adds to the excitement, and they provide waterproof capes.On our way back to the hotel we stopped by the road and encountered a herd of 15 elephants, a full family! we also saw mongoose.A fantastic trip well worth every penny, cannot recommend enough
one must do day. what a great experience, we saw even swimming elephants, lots of them crossing the river, the boot is confy and shady, we watched a lot of great big animals coming to the freth water and the island, also the hotel with lunch was luxurious and with fantastic wooden architecture. the boarder formalities went quickly and easy
The morning river cruise was fantastic. We saw elephants cross the river. Baby elephants used their trunks as snorkels!What we missed was a look at the hippos. There were lots of them around but after we spent too much time with the elephants, we had no time for the hippos.The afternoon game drive was a disaster. The Toyota pickups used were not up to the job. We floundered around in deep sand and finally both trucks became hopelessly stuck.Another tour with a Toyota Land Cruiser came along and pulled us out.By then we were late and the border was about to close. No time for a bathroom break and we made a wild dash for the border. We got there five minutes before the border closed and we would have been stuck for the night.It certainly was an adventure but not quite what we had in mind.
We were not sure about booking this tour while spending 3 days at Victoria Falls. This tour ended up being one of the highlights of our 3 weeks vacation in South Africa and Zimbabwe. If you have a few days in Victoria Falls, do not miss this tour. If you are in the planning stages of your trip, include an extra day in Victoria Falls so that you can do this tour. You won't regret it. Wildlife viewing here is fantastic. The tour is extremely well organized, and it is the perfect length.
For one day you couldn't ask for more. We got close up and personal with elephants, hypos, and many more animals. The ability to do both water and land tour was nice variety. While on the water we got to see so many types of birds. If you have an available day in Vic Falls I highly recommend this one day safari.
