Tanzania vs Vic Falls/Chobe - Where should we go?

Jump to last reply

We've been thinking about and planning this trip for several months and now it's time to make some decisions. We thought we had absolutely decided to go to Tanzania but were also hoping to have a side trip to Vic Falls. We're working with 2afrika and they designed a special trip to the Falls which includes Tanzania, but it just about doubled the cost for only one actual day at the Falls that we decided to just skip it.

Then I saw that 2afrika offers a trip to Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park for the same cost and number of days as the Tanzania trip. So now we're kind of torn between the two. I hope that some of you experienced travelers can advise us.

We are especially wanting to see the animals. I understand Chobe has lots of elephants, but would we see as many different animals and quantities as we would at Ngorongoro or Serengeti? In your opinion, which trip would be a better Africa experience for first time visitors?

I haven't heard much said about Victoria Falls? Is it not wonderful worthwhile experience? I read where some people suggested that it wasn't safe? Any thoughts there? Also if we switch and go Victoria Falls/Chobe, is it still OK to go in February? Or is that not a good time of the year?

Thanks for your help. We will need to make a decision by next week.
