The Four Corners Experience stretches from the Ngoma border post, through Chobe National Park in Botswana to the mighty Victoria Falls that are shared by two countries, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Along the way travellers will have glimpses of the Zambezi River before reaching the Chobe River as it merges with the Zambezi at the confluence. Seeing the abundant wildlife of the area come to drink at sunset on the banks of the Chobe River is one of the best experiences southern Africa has to offer.
The final destination on this experience is the famous Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya (‘the smoke that thunders‘), Africa’s biggest spectacle of water and a sight not to be missed. Anyone with a passion for wildlife, birds and fishing will return home with a thousand pictures and wealth of memories to share. The main attractions that form part of this experience include Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls and the Four Corners Baobab on Impalila Island.
Impalila Island offers fantastic birding which includes the highly sought-after Pels fishing owl and, if you are really lucky, the crested guinea-fowl. The eastern floodplains have many grassveld species, including the rosy-throated longclaw, and many water birds are found in the malapos (pools) during the rainy season and after the Zambezi and Chobe River waters recede. Specials in this area include slaty egret, rufous-bellied heron and coppery-tailed coucal.
