Witness one of the world’s most striking natural attractions Victoria Falls. As well as a cruise along the Upper Zambezi River - where you’re sure to spot wildlife as the sun goes down, take a guided tour of the falls and learn more about its history as you watch the long, crashing streams flow. However, a range of optional extras is also on offer for further exploration of this African jewel, such as rafting, kayaking and a scenic helicopter ride.

As the mighty Zambezi River runs on its westwards course - it created a natural boundary between the neighbouring nations of Zimbabwe and Zambia as well as has etched a series of dramatic gorges over aeons of time. At its high water peak, the plume of spray can be seen from 50 kilometres away - but doesn't even begin to compare with the drama of seeing the falls up close and personal.

Ideally situated right in the heart of Southern Africa’s greatest wildlife area - you don't want to miss out on Victoria Falls. Africa has plenty of magnificent sites waiting to be discovered - but as the “Adventure Capital of Africa”, Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya “the smoke that thunders” should top the list.

Activities at the Victoria Falls includes; Chobe day trip from the Victoria Falls. Explore an abundance of wildlife, fly fox, gorge swing, fly over the Victoria Falls as the ‘Flight of Angel with helicopter and camp on the sparkling white beaches. Encounter the Victoria Falls Canopy Tour - that offers an amazing views of Zambezi rapids, Victoria Falls Bridge and the spray of the falls as well as enjoy zipline ride. A Botswana and Zimbabwe safari is definitely what you need if you’re keen to encounter the thundering Victoria Falls.
