Victoria Falls activities (Devils pools & Botswana) questions

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 7 adults and Victoria Falls will be our last stop after a 2 week trip to South Africa in mid August 2012. We are staying at the Illala Lodge for 2 nights which equates to 1 afternoon of activities (we arrive at 13:50), 1 full day of activities, & possibly 1 early morning activity before we depart at 13:15. Based on what I have read, I think these are the activities we would most like to squeeze in if possible:
Self guided walking tour of the Falls
Short helicopter tour of the Falls
Tour of Livingstone Island (& possibly Devil's Pool if water level is right)
1/2 day or full day safari/river trip to Chobe in Botswana
Is it possible to fit all of this in?
Also, we will have been on 8 days of safari in South Africa before arriving at the Falls. And although I don't think it's possible to get "burnt out" on African safaris, will the day at Chobe be worth it? We have heard that the habitat and landscape is different in Botswana and that is why we really wanted to see it. But if it's not that different we'd like to know that.
Any input will be appreciated!
