EXTEND YOUR STAY
The most popular extension to the 'Classic Explorer Safari' is a few days at the magnificent Victoria Falls (from a logistical point of view it would be best to START in Victoria Falls and then transfer by road to Chobe to begin the safari):
The world-famous falls, known locally as "Mosi oa Tunya" (The Smoke that Thunders), were seen by David Livingstone in 1855 and named after the reigning monarch. Victoria Falls is the largest single sheet of water in the world, over 100 metres tall, and over one mile wide. We recommend a stay in a luxury tented suite at The Elephant Camp; please ask for details.
