Namibia, Chobe and Vic Falls Tour (10 Days)

10 days Namibia, Chobe and Vic Falls Tour Map

10 Day Namibia, Chobe, and Vic Falls Tour is a well priced scheduled safari tour; that visits 5 National Parks in Namibia and Botswana; ending at the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Experience the fantastic scenery, wildlife, and cultures in Namibia and Botswana. This tour spends quite a bit of time in the Zambezi Region / Kaza Transfrontier Park. This used to be called the Caprivi Strip. This 280-mile long panhandle of Namibia has lush vegetation due to it being surrounded by 4 major rivers; namely Chobe, Kwando Linyanti, and the mighty Zambezi. The Zambezi Region shares its borders with 4 countries; Angola, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

There are five protected areas in the region and in all of them you’ll find big game; including water-loving species such as hippo, crocodile, sable, waterbuck, reedbuck, and buffalo; which are largely absent from the rest of Namibia. Additionally, the entire eastern Caprivi is a bird-watchers paradise with over 430 species; nearly 70% of Namibia’s total number of bird species has been recorded here.

You can compare the wildlife in the relatively dryer Etosha; to the different wildlife along three major rivers in the Zambezi and Chobe area. This safari is Africa at its most pure.
