Vic Falls from Zimbabwe
One can visit the Vic Falls from Zimbabwe or Zambian side. A great way to see Vic Falls starting with a flight from Johannesburg. The package includes accommodation in a luxury hotel with breakfasts, airport/hotel transfers, a guided tour to Vic falls, the Boma dinner, a sun-downer cruise enjoying the African scenery and wildlife while sipping your favourite alcoholic or non-alcoholic refreshment and watching the sunset over Africa! Optional activities such as a helicopter or fixed-wing flight over the area, additional game viewing, visits to a cultural village, bungee jumping, etc. can be added.
We start this tour in Johannesburg and fly from the O R Tambo International Airport to Vic Falls Airport and transferred to your hotel. A little later this afternoon embark on a 2-hour Sundowner Cruise. Enjoy finger snacks with your favourite alcoholic or soft drink on the Zambezi River.
The cruise is a superb way to relax and enjoy the beauty of the river. You have the opportunity to see a variety of game including hippo, crocodile, elephant and sometimes even rhino, and many bird species. Return to your hotel to relax and have a snack for dinner (not included) as the sundowner cruise probably filled you up! Overnight at the Kingdom Hotel.
DAY 2. Vic Falls
Vic Falls, a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell, the humbling feeling that may indeed be nature’s masterpiece. Nothing prepares one for your first encounter with the Vic Falls. On this guided tour, you will be accompanied through the rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the waterfall itself as well as detailing the flora, fauna, bird and wildlife and other points of interest. We return to the hotel later, or you can continue to do our own exploring.
Early evening, you are transferred to the Boma Place of Eating… This is not just another ethnic restaurant but a unique cultural experience. You will be greeted in local languages and invited to participate in a hand washing ceremony before sampling traditional beer and snacks before dinner. Excellent cuisine, including a variety of game meats and traditional Zimbabwean dishes are on offer. The meal is accompanied by entertainment from 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.
