Detailed Itinerary

Arrival into Victoria Falls Airport, meet your English Speaking Guide and transfer to your hotel.
A World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles and the stuff of legends, romance and myth. Long before the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone ‘discovered’ the Victoria Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’.

Livingstone had named the Falls after his queen. Today, the town rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting.

Lunch at the hotel (own account – depending on arrival time).Rest of day / evening at leisure

After breakfast .Half Day Victoria Falls Tour (Zimbabwe side) starts at 0800hrs.

The Victoria Falls – Now In Its 150 Millionth Fantastic Year - Reaches Its Zenith in About May each year. It's a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature's Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight.

En route, you will be taken past the ‘Big Tree’ where you may stop and take photos.

You will be accompanied through the Rainforest by one of our qualified Guides who will give a brief history of the Falls themselves as well as detailing the flora, fauna, bird & wildlife and other points of interest.

Cruise along the banks of the river and view the spectacular scenery that is nature’s own sanctuary, and home to the “laughing hippos”, the “singing birds” and the “snapping crocodiles”, as you sip on your drink and indulge on mouthwatering snacks.

Enjoy the hospitality of our professional guide and Captain as you relax and enjoy the delicious snacks and chilled refreshments. See the “smoke that thunders” as you gently cruise the upper Zambezi River. Enjoy the myths and legends as our guide shares stories of the local tribes.

Experience the Zambezi River as David Livingstone did and travel through waters once journeyed by him on his way to the Victoria Falls. Observe the aquatic bird life and other resident or migratory species.
