In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

Best time to travel
Victoria Falls – Day 1
You will be collected at the Livingstone or Vic Falls airport for your transfer to the Royal Livingstone Hotel (or alternative hotel) situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi river. On 16 November 1855, David Livingstone first laid eyes on the waterfall that would define his life story, and that of an entire country. Visible from over 30km away, the Kololo people with whom he had travelled downriver called it Mosi-oa-Tunya, the smoke that thunders. As the first European to witness this magnificent site he decided to name it Victoria Falls in honour of his Queen. The Royal Livingstone Hotel is a luxurious 5 star plus hotel situated on the Zambian side of the falls. The hotel stretches along the banks of the Zambezi River, just a short walk to the entrance of Victoria Falls. It is named in honour of David Livingstone, and its interior design reflects the elegance of days gone by, using an African architectural style. After settling into your room a short walk will bring you to the water’s edge of the river. The Zambezi Sunset Cruise is almost a compulsory outing when in Victoria Falls and suitable for the whole family. It is an ideal way to end your day, providing an opportunity to unwind and relax in the timeless environment while enjoying complimentary sundowner drinks and light snacks. This evening dinner will be served under a starry night with great views over the river.

Victoria Falls – Day 2
This morning after breakfast you will be collected in the reception of your hotel to be transferred to Zimbabwe for a guided walking tour of the breath-taking Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world. The falls are more majestic on the Zimbabwean side, therefore you will cross the border from Zambia where a network of paths allows you to thoroughly see the falls from every angle. Hereafter you will enjoy lunch at the Lookout Café. The cafe is perched 120m above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River, overhanging a giant chasm of the Batoka Gorge and just down from the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge which forms part of its spectacular backdrop. The semi open‐air café undoubtedly offers the best views in Victoria Falls. For the rest of the day you are free to explore the town and its many activities. For the adrenaline junkies there is the wildest one-day white water rafting trip in the world, the 111-meter-high bungee jump, river surfing, kayaking as well as heart stopping gorge swings, zip wires and many more. For the more sedate there are river cruises, elephant interactions, rich local arts, crafts and cultural experiences, fishing, golf, and game and safari adventures. In the late afternoon you will be transferred back to the Royal Livingstone where dinner is booked at one of the dining venue options available at the hotel.

Victoria Falls – Day 3
After an early breakfast this morning get transferred to Botswana after crossing 2 borders. Chobe National Park is known for the large herds of elephants and buffalo. They tend to make their way to the river for a drink and onto the islands in the river to feast off the sweet grass. River boat safaris on the Chobe river offer a unique up-close and personal game viewing and bird watching opportunity. A specially adapted boat will take you through the unique islands and channels that provide such a haven for bird and wildlife. Your professional boat captain will impart their knowledge of this amazing environment and the people that inhabit its shores. This full day trip to the Chobe starts with a morning on the river and then a game drive on land in the Chobe National Park in the afternoon. This evening we will arrange a private dining setting on the banks of the Zambezi river under a starry African night.
