The best game viewing in the region is across the border in Chobe National Park in Botswana which is only a 2 hour drive from Victoria Falls. It is one of the greatest game reserves in southern Africa and famous for the number of elephant that live there. The Chobe River flows lazily through the Caprivi flood plains and provides a haven for huge herds of buffalo and elephant, zebra, wildebeest, lechwe and impala which are followed closely by predators including lion, hyena, the elusive leopard and the odd pack of the now rare wild dog. The bird life in particular is exceptional.
Travelling to Chobe includes passing by the point where the 4 countries of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia meet. The Safari starts with a morning game viewing cruise on the Chobe River with tea, coffee, drinks and light snacks being served on board. Large flocks of birds, big pods of hippo and very large crocodiles are all around. After disembarking, lunch is then taken at the Chobe Safari Lodge, which overlooks the Chobe River and the flood plains beyond. In the afternoon, open safari vehicles are used for a game drive into the park. The game drive meanders its way back to Customs and Immigration, before crossing the border and then transferring back to Victoria Falls at approximately 18H30
