What You Can Expect

3-Day Victoria Falls Tour with Round-Trip Flight from Johannesburg

3-Day Victoria Falls Tour with Round-Trip Flight from Johannesburg

Your tour includes a round-trip flight from OR Tambo International Airport to Victoria Falls Airport plus two nights of accommodation in your choice of a 3-, 4- or a 5-star hotel – all on the Zimbabwe side of the falls. Choose from the the 3-star A’Zambezi River Lodge with views of Zambezi River, 4-star Victoria Falls Safari Lodge with its on-site watering hole, or the 5-star Victoria Falls Hotel with its luxurious swimming pool and spa. All hotels are centrally located for maximum convenience, and you’ll have ample time to enjoy their facilities and explore the surrounding area.


Day 1: Johannesburg – Victoria Falls
Make your way to OR Tambo International Airport in time for your 1.5-hour flight to Victoria Falls. You’ll be met by a local host on arrival, who will then drive you to your accommodation in the village – roughly 11 miles (18km) north of the airport.

Check into your hotel and then spend your afternoon at leisure, perhaps exploring the village or making use of your hotel’s facilities. Your host will happily offer recommendations for places to eat or sites to visit.

Overnight: 3-star A’Zambezi River Lodge, 4-star Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, or 5-star Victoria Falls Hotel

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.

Excellent. I enjoy

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

I had a great time. The resort was beautiful, I stayed at the A'Zambezi River Lodge. It was located right on the Zambezi River. They evening buffet is worth they price! The cruise was pleasant. I went during high season so we didn't see as much as we possible could have seen:-( We did see hippos. I was able to take great footage of them. Victoria Falls is AMAZING. You will get wet but raincoats were provided. I elected to participate in additional activities. 3 nights were not enough. I could have used at least one more day. There are many adventure activities to do there. One additional activity that I did, was the elephant walk. Afterwards they brought out a cheetah. (Raised domestically, couldn't go back into the wild). We were able to take pictures and pet him. He even licked my wrist/arm without thinking I am breakfast!!! I had an awesome time. I would definitely go back!!!!
