DAY 2. Vic Falls
The Vic Falls is in its 150 millionths fantastic year, a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell, the humbling feeling that this may indeed be nature’s supreme masterpiece. Nothing prepares one for your first sight of it. On this guided tour, you will be accompanied through the rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the area as well as detailing the flora, fauna, bird and wildlife and other points of interest. We return to the hotel later or you can do our own exploring. A great option is to ask the bus driver to drop you at the nearby Look-out Cafe for great views of the river and while having an excellent lunch. You could even try one of Africa’s highest ziplines or the gorge swing!
Early evening you are transferred to the Boma Place of Eating… This is not just another ethnic restaurant but a rather unique cultural experience. You will be greeted in local languages and invited to take part in a hand washing ceremony before sampling traditional beer and snacks before dinner. Excellent cuisine, including a variety of traditional Zimbabwean dishes, are on offer. The meal is accompanied by entertainment such as traditional dancers, the storyteller and a local witch-doctor for some fortune-telling. After dinner, the Sangoma tells tales of the country’s folklore, culture and heritage. The highlight of the evening is the interactive drumming and dancing, so come prepared to participate. Overnight at the hotel.
