TOUR OF THE FALLS


SHORT TOUR
Departs daily at 08h30 & 14h30
Duration 2 Hours
No surprise why Victoria Falls is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World! You’ll understand it instantly as we tour the Zimbabwean side, for there are numerous spectacular vantage points along the width of the Falls, and the sight of this astounding gift of nature, simply takes your breath away.  Walk through the permanent, beautifully misty rain forest which flanks the Falls, stopping to marvel at the principal sites as it cascades to the depths below: the Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Rainbow Falls, the Boiling Pot, Cataract Island and Livingstone Island. We’ll stand and watch, feel and listen to the spray and thunderous noise, as millions of litres of water tumble over the Falls into a series of narrow gorges below. The seventh Natural Wonder of the World puts on the most dramatic show for you, and you’ll be privileged to have watched it. 

Please Note: The Falls on the Zambian side may dry out seasonally (Sep – Dec). During this time we recommend you view the Falls on the Zimbabwean side. We also offer a combination tour which takes you to both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side of the Falls.

YOUR EXPERIENCE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Viewing of the Falls including the Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Rainbow Falls, the Boiling Pot, Cataract Island and Livingstone Island.

LIVINGSTONE ISLAND LUNCH


SHORT TOUR
Departs daily at 12h30
Duration 3 Hours 30 Minutes
Stand where David Livingstone stood when he first discovered and measured the Falls! It’s a moving moment. Our visit is to Livingstone Island, a mere 10 minute river-boat ride away from shore, on the Zambezi River, a location for a most memorable lunch experience. The theatre of the experience and the extreme beauty of the views are matched only by the diversity of the bird life – it’s a wonderful way to soak up the African bush. You’ll be viewing the Falls from a unique vantage point, right at the point where the water thunders down a 100 metre drop. Nothing like a view of that magnitude to add to the flavour of drinks and lunch on Livingstone Island!

  • Zambezi River

ABSEILING, GORGE SWING AND ZIPLINE


FULL OR HALF DAY TOUR
Departs daily at 09h00 & 13h30
Half a day of extreme sports, set on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, 300m away from the Victoria Falls.  You could start with Abseiling (moving down the slope backwards) or ‘rap jump’ facing forward down the 53 metre gorge.  Or why not take to flight on the Flying Fox, which allows you to ‘fly’ over the gorge while attached to a cable - you’ll be winched back to earth.  And if you’re still hankering for more, here’s one you’ll love…The Gorge Swing. In short, you throw yourself off the edge of the gorge in a body harness, and freefall before ending your jump with numerous pendulum swings.  Alternatively, launch yourself off Batoka Gorge, decend over the water, reaching speeds of 106km an hour....Ziplining thrill.

Note: All options require that you walk out of the gorge after each activity.

CHOBE DAY TRIP


FULL DAY TOUR
Departs daily at 07h30
This is a sensational trip - land- and water-based game viewing. Your first game sighting is from The Chobe River, teaming with animals, you sitting securely on board, just off the riverbank, game viewing from the relaxing vantage point of a boat. You’re on the mighty Chobe River which flows through the renowned Chobe National Park providing a haven for herds of grazing animals and bird life. Just sit back, relax, and keep those binoculars handy. Watch this glorious scene unfolding itself – large herds of elephant, often with the tiniest frolicking calves, kicking up dust as they wait their turn at the water’s edge to drink.
 
Frighteningly large crocodiles sun themselves on the banks of the river, mouths agape, teeth terrifying. Glorious birdlife, wonderful game, and the gentle rocking of the riverboat. Can life get any better? Apparently. When we disembark, we join our open safari vehicle for a drive through the Chobe Game Reserve with the chance of seeing more wildlife and birdlife, and a gorgeous lunch at a lodge awaiting us.... overlooking the Chobe River. Let’s call it the ultimate.

Note: A passport is required and visa conditions may apply.
