Victoria Falls (Zambia) and Botswana
the month: South Africa
A "trip of a lifetime" filled with the excitement, thrills and
adventure is what the DavidTours [DavidTravel] trip to Southern Africa is all
From the moment you step off the plane in Cape Town at the beginning
of your 15-day tour you'll be pampered and greeted with a warm
The tour begins in Cape Town with a stay at the Table Bay Hotel, a
wonderfully luxurious leading hotel of the world. The staff
will greet you with a warm reception and with vivid descriptions of
things to come.
The next day will entail touring throughout the city on a bus tour
that will give you a look at the buildings and neighborhoods and a
trip to Table Mountain for spectacular views. Visiting a
Township clearly shows the difference in lifestyles existing
throughout the country and enriches your understanding wonderful and
Touring wine country, seeing seals, penguins and other exotic animals
and birds in their natural surroundings, visiting the southwestern
most tip of South Africa, Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, will
only be a few of the points of interest in the first few days.
What follows are four perfect days on photo safari at Mushatu Private
Game Reserve in Botswana. This is the largest piece of private
land in Africa! Here, expert guides and rangers will lead you on a
trip into the wild where you will see lions, leopards, elephants,
giraffes, and hundreds of other thrilling sights every day.
From before the sun comes up, until late into the night, the
day is filled with excitement. Here in the bush you'll stay in
cabins (air conditioned and heated), dine under the sun or stars, and
explore across dry riverbeds and plateaus. You will be thrilled
with an unparalleled sunset at the top of a mountain overlooking the
vast South African plain.
A short flight will take you to Chobe National Park and a stay at the
small, refined and beautiful Chobe Savanna Lodge or Chobe Chilwero
Lodge. Much of the great game view will be by boat along the
river with sundowner cocktails.
Only about 2 hours from Chobe is Victoria Falls in Zambia, where you
will stay at the Royal Livingstone, a new top rate hotel with
exquisite room overlooking the banks of the Zambezi River. From
the deck you'll be able to see elephants, alligators, hippos and the
river scene. Fine dining either indoors or outdoors, a superb
bar and lounging room, and an exotic gift shop are only part of what
there is to enjoy at the world-class hotel. The staff is
cordial and ready to serve your every need. It is a rare and
special treat to spend 4 nights here. Trust us, you will thank
DavidTours [DavidTravel] for this itinerary.
This part of the trip will be perhaps the most memorable. The
sight of Victoria Falls spilling millions of gallons of water each
second over its rim will be an unforgettable sight. Seeing it
for the first time from a railway and vehicular bridge while crossing
the Zambezi River was magical. You will see even more of its
majesty the next day with a mile wide scene of breathtaking views and
permanent "smoke" caused by the water spraying back up into the air
100 feet above the falls. Its permanent multiple rainbows on
sunny days truly make Victoria Falls one of the Seven Wonders of the
A highlight of the Victoria Falls experience is a jeep trip to the
river gorge, a picnic luncheon by the river, a jet boat ride up the
rapids, a helicopter ride over the, and then a boat trip up the
Zambezi River at sunset where cocktails and hor d'ouvres are served.
Who could imagine a more fantastic day?
Johannesburg is another world of hustle and bustle. The Grace
Hotel, a Small Luxury Hotel of The World, with all of its deluxe
amenities and service, will serve as your base of operations for one
night. Trips to the bars and clubs, shopping or just enjoying
the sights of the sprawling city all will provide you with hours of
An optional add-on includes a bus ride to The Palace of the Lost
City, a Leading Hotel of The World, and further safari. There
will be plenty of time to rest here and relax from the fast-paced
days that will have just passed. The fabulous "Palace," with
all it's rich and opulent adornments will leave a lasting impression
on you until you are drawn to return to Southern Africa.
Perhaps the best part of DavidTours [DavidTravel] experience is that you get to
meet the local gay and lesbians that will embrace you with warm
conversation and an insight into this miraculous continent of
wonders, contradictions, joy, and hope.
You will return home with gifts and a head filled with wondrous,
unforgettable experiences and the true treasure of having been on a
DavidTours [DavidTravel] trip.
