Victoria Falls – 3 days

ZIMBABWE

Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River is one of Africa’s most iconic destinations and deservedly on many bucket lists. That awe-inspiring vertical drop of 108m into the chasm below and the mist spray curtain during the full flood that can be seen and heard from afar make for a truly unforgettable experience. Its local name is ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, which means ‘the smoke that thunders’.

Just wandering the streets of this quaint town is a special experience as you negotiate for souvenirs, dodge warthogs (and elephants!), hang out with locals and sample a range of restaurants and bars. But of course, most people go to Vic Falls for the adventure activities, which never fail to enthral ALL visitors - regardless of age and appetite for danger

Three days of non-stop action at Africa’s adventure capital - the ideal for a short break or add-on to another safari

Where does one begin to describe the awe and thrill of Victoria Falls? The Falls are undeniably the main attraction, and there is little doubt why. Twice the height of Niagara Falls, this is the world's largest uninterrupted sheet of falling water, displacing 500 million litres of water per minute (the equivalent of 200 Olympic-sized swimming pools). Shared by the two countries, Zimbabwe and Zambia, protected within two national parks, Mosi-oa-Tunya NP and Victoria Falls NP, this is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

It’s also an adventure centre of note. You could stay for ages and enjoy a different activity every day, from bungee jumping, gorge swinging and white water rafting, to helicopter and microlight flights (a.k.a the flight of angels), sunset boat and steam train cruises, horse riding, game drives, canoe trips, and so much more.

During your stay on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, walk across the bridge to visit the Zambian side, which offers an exhilarating walk across the ‘Knife-edge Bridge’, a close-up view of the ‘Boiling Pot’ (a scary whirlpool at the base of the falls) and, for the really adventurous, a dip in the famous ‘Devil’s Pool’.

And Victoria Falls is ideally located to combine with wildlife safaris to Botswana’s Chobe and the Okavango Delta, Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools, Kariba and the nearby Hwange NP and Zambia’s Kafue, South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi.
