The Experiences – From a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to incredible safari encounters across three of Botswana's best game parks

Your experience begins in Zimbabwe, your gateway to the spectacular Victoria Falls with a guided tour of this incredible site followed by an unforgettable helicopter flight over the falls. Relax with an afternoon cruise on the mighty Zambezi River aboard the African Queen as you spot native wildlife whilst enjoying a selection of drinks and canapés.

Take in incredible animal encounters as you explore three of Botswana's best game reserves and national parks in the comfort of luxury safari vehicles and lodges in the hands of skilled Belmond naturalist guides and trackers.

Your safari adventure begins in Chobe National Park, home to Africa’s largest elephant population, with an estimated 120,000 of these beautiful animals calling the reserve home. Botswana has long been associated with the world’s greatest explorers, including David Livingstone, and you can follow in their footsteps with incredible wildlife experiences. Spend two full days in the Chobe area, taking morning and afternoon game drives. The rich ecosystems of the park lend themselves to an astonishing diversity of flora and fauna, as well as an array of stunning landscapes, and, of course, spectacular wild animals, including lions, tigers, hyenas and more.

Continue to the Moremi Game Reserve, home to some of the world’s most endangered species, including the cheetah, black and white rhinoceros, African wild dog and lion. Located within the larger, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Okavango Delta Game Reserve, Moremi covers about 40% of the Okavango and is the ideal spot for ticking off the elusive Big Five.
