6 day Victoria Falls & Zambezi Queen River Cruise Victoria Falls • Zambezi Queen • Chobe River

Day 1: Victoria Falls On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure. Ilala Lodge (2 nights) Day 2: Victoria Falls Day 2 is at leisure. Ilala Lodge is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi River, and is geographically the closest hotel to the magnificent Falls. Declared a World Heritage Site and voted one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls are within easy walking distance for guests, as is the town centre. Ilala Lodge is also the perfect spot from which to embark upon a voyage of discovery in one of Africa’s favourite tourist destinations. Historical sites, culinary experimentation and a host of activities in pristine natural surroundings are all within your reach. (B) Day 3: Zambezi Queen Transfer to the Zambezi Queen, where you will be served lunch or snacks (depending on arrival time). Once all the guests have boarded in the late afternoon, weather permitting, there will be an opportunity to go in search of some big game by tender boat. The golden glow of the African sunset provides the perfect opportunity to get some iconic shots of the animals as they gravitate towards the river before night fall. Return back to the Zambezi Queen and freshen up before a welcome cocktail with the captain on the upper deck. After a safety briefing, make your way to the dining room where you’ll be served a delectable 3-course dinner along with an excellent choice of paired wines. Finish off with an espresso or nightcap at the bar before retiring to the night sounds of Africa in the distance. (BD) Zambezi Queen Riverboat (3 nights) Day 4: Zambezi Queen Opt to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee or take a more leisurely approach. In the morning, you have a choice of activities, depending on the type of holiday you’re searching for. Perhaps you want to enjoy a water-based safari or a village tour on the Namibian side of the river. Or perhaps you’d prefer a spot of bird watching or fishing instead. You may even decide

to simply remain on board as the luxurious Zambezi Queen glides past the banks of the Chobe River. After lunch on board, enjoying a unique vantage point to spot wild animals and drink in the expansive views. Join your guide for a water-based safari on a tender boat where you can get up close to an array of wildlife, including some of the 120,000 elephants for which the Chobe is well known. After a delicious dinner, settle down for a restful and tranquil night in your luxurious suite. (BLD) Day 5: Zambezi Queen After a hearty breakfast, head off to experience those activities you didn’t manage to fit in on day 4: enjoy a water-based river safari by tender boat, go bird watching or go fishing for tiger or bream. Return for lunch on board and some relaxation time before the afternoon activities start. In the evening, you’re in for a treat. Enjoy a traditional African dinner served with festive African singing and dancing – you can even join in the festivities if you feel like it. (BLD) Day 6: Victoria Falls Enjoy a morning cruise during breakfast as you do your last bit of animal spotting and take some memorable pictures. Bid the crew a reluctant farewell and then make your way via boat to the Namibian Immigration Office. Once you’ve had your documents stamped you’ll be transferred via boat to the Kasane Immigration Office where you’ll have your documents stamped once again before entering Botswana. Transfer back to Victoria Falls Airport for your homeward flight. (B)
