Top off your tour of Africa with this amazing extension that visits the mighty Victoria Falls. Situated on the Zambezi River, the Victoria Falls are truly a spectacular sight of natural beauty and for the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. We promise - you will not be disappointed!
DAY 1 VICTORIA FALLS
David Livingstone named Victoria Falls in honour of his queen, yet the local Botswana and Makololo people call it ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ (‘the smoke that thunders’). Rumoured to be the largest waterfall in the world, it has a width of 1.7 kilometres, a drop of 108 metres and a flow rate of over 5 million cubic metres per minute - Victoria Falls is indeed a phenomenon to be reckoned with! On arrival in Victoria Falls, you transfer to your hotel. Later this afternoon you will be picked up by your guide and taken for a sunset cruise along the magnificent Zambezi River. Relax with a sundowner as you gaze out onto the banks of the river and experience one of the most spectacular sunsets in Africa. During your cruise you’ll be sure to see many animal species, including elephant, giraffe, hippos, crocodiles and colourful birdlife.
DAY 2 VICTORIA FALLS
See why Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world today. While walking through the lush rainforest, you’ll enjoy various vantage points where you can view this natural phenomenon. Witness the spray and rapturous thunder of the falls as millions of tons of water tumble over the ridge into the deep narrow gorge, where the Zambezi continues its eastward course, some 110 metres below, towards the Indian Ocean. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure, why not visit the Elephant Walk Market and purchase local handicrafts? This evening enjoy a special African Boma dinner, including dancing, singing and drumming. [B,D]
