Day 2: Victoria Falls (B)
Enjoy breakfast in your hotel and then set off with your guide on a morning tour of the incredible Victoria Falls. Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the waterfall also takes the name of Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘smoke that thunders’ in Kololo, referencing the spectacular mist that forms around its crashing waters.
Explore the rainforest trails surrounding the falls with your guide, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Zambezi River’s ferocious torrents plunging down a series of basalt gorges. Based on width and height (roughly 1.2 miles (2km) wide and 360 feet (108m) high),Victoria Falls is known as the world’s largest waterfall, and as you come face-to-face with it, with the water pounding in your ears and the spray rising before your eyes, you’ll certainly understand the name ‘smoke that thunders!’ While walking, watch out for Livingstone’s Statue that looks out over the Devil’s Cataract – a natural pool that marks the lowest point of the falls.
Take a break for lunch in the village (own expense) and then meet your guide in the late afternoon for a cruise along the Zambezi River. Sit back and relax with a drink (own expense), watching the stunning African sunset. Sightings of wild animals are common, so watch out for hippos, birds and even elephants that may come down to the riverbanks to wallow, bathe and drink. After watching the sun go down, your guide will drop you back at your hotel. Spend your evening at leisure.
Overnight: 3-star A’Zambezi River Lodge, 4-star Victoria Falls Safari Lodge or 5-star Victoria Falls Hotel
Day 3: Victoria Falls – Johannesburg (B)
Relax over a leisurely breakfast and then check out of your hotel. Your guide will pick you up and transfer you to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight back to Johannesburg.
