Full Day Chobe

Activity Description

Full Day Chobe Trip from Livingstone, Zambia. Enjoy game viewing in this iconic park. Chobe National Park is well known for its large herds of elephant that frequent the Chobe River daily. In the dry season approximately 85 000 elephants can be dispersed within the Chobe National Park, where a vast number can be found along the river. Apart from the elephants, Chobe also has lots more to offer; the Park has lions, leopards, buffalo and a whole host of antelope like sable, puku, kudu, eland, roan and many others which you can view. The river is filled with big pods of hippos and some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa.

This tour leaves daily to the Chobe National Park in Botswana. Clients will be transferred to the Kazungula border where their Botswana guide will meet them. They will proceed straight to the morning cruise where they will spend the morning game viewing along the Chobe River. The tour will end at around 12h30 and clients will go to a hotel on the riverbank for lunch. After lunch, guests will board safari vehicles for an afternoon game drive in the Chobe National Park. Following this they will be taken back to the Kazungula Border where they will be met by their Zimbabwean guide for their return transfer to Victoria Falls.

The Flying Fox

Everyone wants to have superpowers, and nine out of ten times their chosen superpower would be the ability to fly. With the Flying Fox, you can finally realize that dream. The adventure begins on a wooden platform, and with your heart racing and palms sweating, you can see wide the gorge and hear the deafening rapids below. With a harness secured, you take your first steps towards that feeling of flight. When your feet leave the platform, the harness turns you into “Superman position”, so that you are horizontally suspended as you zoom through the air. Any fear you may have felt before is whisked away in the wind as you soar between the lips of the gorge above breath taking views. The gentle pace of the flying fox enables you to fully appreciate the vegetation that sprout from the cracks in the rock and climb up the black basalt. The sounds of the rapids churning below mingle with the calls of the birds that fly at what is now eye level. The Flying Fox is perfect for adrenaline junkies. This section of the gorge is 200 meters wide and 120 meters deep and more often than not, it arouses your appetite for the faster, more thrilling high wire activities.
