Veteran safari outfitter offers the ultimate safari experience by land and water
GLENDALE, Cali. – Southern Africa is known for amazing landscapes, spectacular game viewing and posh safari lodging. Yet Southern Africa also offers superlative riverboat safaris along gentle waters teeming with endemic wildlife – an option that provides a different perspective on the much-loved overland safari. Award-winning luxury safari outfitter Great Safaris just released a new Safari Cruise and Victoria Falls tour, providing three nights aboard the Chobe Princess Safariboat and two nights at the Victoria Falls Safari Club. This is the ultimate safari experience by land and water.
Travelers will begin their journey aboard the charming and luxurious Chobe Princess Safariboat on the Chobe River, where they will cruise along the banks of Chobe National Park between Botswana and Namibia. Watch for elephants, hippos, crocodiles and birdlife from a private cabin with floor-to-ceiling sliding windows, head to the spacious lounge for a drink, or relax in the open-air dining area and take in the ever-changing landscapes. Guests will cruise during the day then stop at ideal overnight mooring sites, with the wilderness just beyond the dock. All four double/twin cabins offer air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms equipped with modern shower, toilet and hand basin. Guests will have access to smaller tender boats for optional excursions at their leisure such as fishing, photo safaris and game viewing inside the park.
Safari-goers will disembark the cruise vessel and head across the border to the lavish Victoria Falls Safari Club, located less than three miles from the magnificent Falls. This new Safari Club offers stylish, air-conditioned rooms with premium, personalized service – and optional butler service – overlooking beautiful Zambezi National Park, ensuring amazing game viewing without having to leave the main deck. While this is a great place to just sit back and relax, travelers won’t want to miss the half-day escorted tour of Victoria Falls and rainforest. This must-see destination is a playground for nature lovers, boasting thrilling activities such as hiking, elephant-back safaris, white water rafting, game viewing by horseback and much more.
The six-day Safari Cruise and Victoria Falls (Luxe level) program price from $2,295 per person, with individual daily departures available. Itinerary may be taken in reverse, commencing from Victoria Falls.
