Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is a town in western Zimbabwe and a gateway to the massive waterfall of the same name.

Spanning the river is 1905 Victoria Falls Bridge. The surrounding Zambezi National Park is home to white rhinos and elephants.

Tour Itinerary

Zambezi National Park

Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred by road to the local hotel. One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle straddles both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial whitewater rafting in the world.

During your stay in Victoria Falls you will enjoy a guided tour of the falls which takes approximately 2 hours. This includes fascinating history on the discovery of the falls reflecting that in November 1855, Dr. David Livingstone was transported in a canoe by the local Makalolo people to the very edge of these falls. The sensitive Scotsman was so overwhelmed by his first sight of these spectacular falls, that he momentarily abandoned his scientific observations and recorded, “It has never been seen before by European eyes, but scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. The good missionary, whose heart lies buried in Africa, named this great wonder of the world after Victoria, his British queen.

A thrilling stay in Victoria Falls will end off by watching the sun-setting over the Zambezi by cruising on the luxurious and exclusive Ra-Ikane boat. From the Zambezi River a variety of wildlife can be seen including hippo, crocodile and elephants that often make the daring journey across the vast expanse of the river. Overnight at Ilala Lodge.

After breakfast you will depart via road transfer to Hwange National Park, a journey time of approximately 2.5 hours. Accommodation for the next 3 nights will be spent at Elephant’s Eye. Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s biggest reserve, home to a profusion of wildlife, including giraffe, lion, zebra and approximately 40 000 elephant. It provides sanctuary for all the country’s endangered species, including a population of wild dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent.

Visitors have the choice of game drives, guided walks or horseback safaris as a means of experiencing the park and its creatures. It was declared a game reserve in 1928 and with neighboring Robins Game sanctuary became a national park under the National Park Act of 1949. When founding member Ted Davidson walked across virtually every square kilometer in 1928-29, he discovered the wildlife was almost non-existent. The once teeming herds of elephant numbered less than 1 000 and the rhino, both black and white, had been exterminated due to hunting. Davidson perceived that the water was the critical key and in the years that followed he drilled boreholes to create 60 new pans, linked to the seasonal pans that already existed.

Slowly the animals, particularly the elephant and buffalo, began to move back. To this day water remains the single most important management factor in Hwange’s continued existence - absolutely vital to the survival of what is perhaps Africa’s single largest concentration of elephant. The constant maintenance of the artificial but natural looking water pans, complete with resident hippo and crocodile, has been a major factor sustaining this ecological treasury. Overnight at Elephant’s Eye.

After breakfast, guests are taken by scheduled road transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for their onward travel arrangements. Breakfast.
