Day 8 - Chobe/Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls River Lodge

Upon arrival in Victoria Falls you will be transferred to Victoria Falls River Lodge, a luxury tented lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi river – so close to Victoria Falls one can see the spray in the distance.

Day 9 - Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls River Cruise

After breakfast enjoy a guided walking tour of Victoria Falls, one of seven natural wonders of the world.

Join your passionate and knowledgeable guide on an unforgettable tour. En route, make a stop at the Big Tree for spectacular views and to take photos. A visit to the iconic Victoria Falls is a truly awe-inspiring experience. Nothing can quite prepare one for the sheer splendor of the breathtaking spectacle which is one of Africa’s most famous landmarks.

There is not much that can compare to the heady fragrance of drenched earth and sun-kissed Rainforest foliage; the intense power of the wall of water – its deafening rumble coursing through your veins – or letting the cooling and constant spray of “the Smoke that Thunders” saturate the senses.

With intimate knowledge of the local fauna and flora and other points of historical interest, coupled with advice on the best viewing spots, your guide will happily assist wherever possible to help ensure that the memories created at this World Heritage Site will last a lifetime.

You have the option of a sunrise or sunset river cruise. Watch from the comfort of Victoria Falls River Lodge’s private river cruiser. In the early morning as the world awakes and the sun’s first rays skip and dance across the shimmering surface of the mighty Zambezi.

Or in the evening sit back and let the gentle ebb and flow of the Zambezi lull and relax you. Join in on Mother Nature’s Happiest Hour by sipping on a sun-downer while watching her creatures big and small coming to the water’s edge to lap at its liquid life under the molten skies. After returning to the hotel, enjoy an inspiring and unique Southern African meal served in the distinctive thatched riverside dining area.

Accommodation: Victoria Falls River Lodge (B, L, D)
