It was a lovely daytrip. We flew through immigrations on both the Zambian and Botswana side. I was in doubt about whether there would be charges at the boarders which there were not. The game drive was so nice and the driver was the nicest man. He definetly had our best interest at heart and did his best to find as many animals as possible. We saw elefants everywhere and a lot of hippos and crocodiles. The lunch offered was the most delicious buffet! Fruits, vegetables, meats and ice cream ;) All in all a great day, that I would be happy to repeat.

Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.

Guide, Simon was excellent. He was informative and easy going, with an excellent sense of humour. Victoria falls is a spectacular scenery in itself, and visiting towards the end of the rainy season makes one to appreciate nature's forces.

Velmi příjemná a obohacující plavba po Zambezi, výborná atmosféra, spousta informací, skvělé občerstvení. Viděli jsme z poměrně velké blízkosti mnoho zvířat i ptáků, průvodci byli velmi vstřícní.

Very good visit to the falls on the Zambian side. Very friendly guide with good explanations. We were lucky to have a rainbow and the water level at the falls was very strong.
