Let the Victoria Falls charm you with its natural beauty. Visit one of the world’s 7 Natural Wonders and take a sunset cruise down the Zambezi, tour the Victoria Falls Rain Forest Park and overnight at the A’Zambezi River Lodge.
Day 1 : VICTORIA FALLS AIRPORT – A‘ZAMBEZI RIVER LODGE
A driver will be at the Victoria Falls Airport to welcome you to this piece of Africa to reach the comforts of the A ‘Zambezi River Lodge after a quick 30 min. At dusk, join the sunset cruise to float along the Zambezi River as the sky is set afire with the setting sun. Listen as the calls of the nocturnal animals begin to punctuate the air and keep an eye out for wildlife at the water’s edge. As the last rays of light begin to fade, return to A ‘Zambezi Lodge for a peaceful evening or try their African-fusion cuisine (own expense) as you dine beneath a glittering star-studded sky.

Day 2 : VICTORIA FALL RAINFOREST PARK
After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, your local guide will collect you for a tour of the Victoria Falls Rainforest Park. Visit the ‘Big Tree’ of Victoria Falls – a massive prehistoric baobab standing proud as a symbol of life in African culture. Wind your way through the lush forest as your guide shares stories and points out wildlife. There’s something magical about this place; untouched with secrets just waiting to be found. The first glimpse of the falls is unparalleled. During rain season, pictures just can’t describe the dramatic curtain of water gushing over the cliff’s edge (wet season is usually Dec to Mar). Clouds of mist can be seen and sometimes even heard from miles away, making it is easy to understand why the Kalolo-Lozi people named it “the smoke that thunders”! The spray from the tonnes of falling water is so dense that it rains in every direction. Raincoats are provided but do wear comfortable clothes as it most likely will get wet. It is only from the air that you can fully appreciate the incredible size of the falls and the awesome power of the water as it carves into the deep zig-zagging gorges.
You’ll also have the option to join the optional ‘Flight of Angels’ helicopter flip (own expense). “A scene so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” – as famously described by the African explorer David Livingstone. The 13-minute flight offers the ultimate photo opportunity as you swoop above the falls. A quick jaunt above the mighty Zambezi ends off the flight and a guide can take you back to your hotel, or head off for a 4×4 game drive and bush dinner option in the Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve (own expense).
The ±3hour game drive takes you through the teak forests, past the brilliance of the lakes and across the basalt plains. Keep your eyes open for members of the Big 5, and try and spot some of the rarer creatures of the abundant bird-life of the reserve. Local drinks and snacks are provided during the game drive, followed by a 3-course bush dinner including local beverages. After dinner, a driver will return you to your accommodation.
