DAY 2

Victoria Falls Zambezi Day

Highlights: Tour of Falls Zimbabwe + Zambezi Lunch Cruise + Helicopter Flight. After breakfast you will be picked up for a guided tour of the falls, meander through the lush canopied rain forest, a micro climate created by the spray from the falls. Discrete paths which are wheel chair friendly take visitors to viewing points which allow for stunning viewing and photographic opportunities. In peak season over seven hundred million cubic litres of water per minute from the Zambezi river tumble and roar into the hundred meter deep chasm, a spectacle of nature unrivaled anywhere in the world. The kilometer long paths take you from the David Livingstone statue and Devils Gorge in the eastern most portion of the falls to the Boiling Pot in the west, where this incredible volume of water writhes and twists in it's efforts to escape to the Indian ocean two thousand kilometers downstream. Zambezi Lunch Cruise After visiting the falls, return to your hotel to freshen up, and dry off, before setting off for a lunch cruise. The cruise begins a couple of kilometers upstream of the falls, where the Zambezi river gently meanders over a kilometer wide front. Islands fringed with palm tree's, hippo honking, and the haunting cry of an African Fish Eagle are almost unimaginable in there serenity considering the thunderous spectacle of the the falls just a few kilometers downstream. Opportunities to see elephant and plains game are on offer, and if lucky you might witness elephant swimming to one of the islands. Crocodiles basking on exposed sand banks, stunning bird life and and the distant roar of the falls set the tone for a fabulous lunch. Helicopter Flight In the afternoon, experience the thrill of flying in a helicopter over the falls. This twelve minute flight gives a birds eye view of the falls, placing in perspective the sheer scale and magnitude of the falls. A perfect ending to a day spent on and above the Zambezi river.

DAY 3

Victoria Falls Culture Day

Highlight: African Village Tour + Home Hosted Lunch + Bridge Tour + Boma Dinner. In the morning guests are taken to an authentic rural village approximately 20km from Victoria Falls town where they are given the opportunity to interact with villagers going about their daily tasks. The tour enables guests to see rural life first hand; visiting rural homes, watching their fields being tended and possibly getting the chance to help in some of the day-to-day chores. This is highly recommended for all age groups, but especially children and teens. Home hosted Lunch meals provide valuable income to local providers. This initiative aims to empower local people by providing income and allowing them to have a fun interaction with visitors while teaching them about local culture and traditions. Families welcome guests into their homes and provide them with a traditional meal. This has proved highly successful and greatly beneficial to the individuals involved. A short transfer takes you to the Chinotimba High Density suburb, where you will hosted by a local family in their residence and served a traditional African home made lunch. A great experience for children or teens who will enjoy meeting other children and learn about other cultures. Expect an authentic home cooked meal, there will be options you are familiar with that are commonly eaten in Zimbabwe such as beef stew as well as some local dishes that may be new to you. You do not have to try these if you are wary but it is great fun if you do. Bridge Tour Guests are collected from hotel and transferred by vehicle through customs and immigration to the Victoria Falls Bridge Visitors Centre. After a refreshment and registration the tour begins. It starts with a very entertaining performance by an actor impersonating Mr. Georges Imbault who was the chief engineer during the construction of the bridge. This show last about 45 minutes as he regales stories of how and why the bridge was constructed, the enormous problems they encountered and how they overcame them. It's enthralling and fascinating. After a short safety briefing and the donning of a safety harness by which you attach yourself to safety ropes under the bridge, you are then led on a guided walk underneath the bridge which gives you a real opportunity to marvel at the Bridge's construction. Boma Dinner This is a cultural experience as well as a restaurant, situated in Gusu Bush near the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. The Menu specializes in a range of traditional Zimbabwean dishes as well as a barbecue buffet so everyone’s tastes are catered for but also with the chance to try local delicacies such as mopani worms, game stews and traditional beer. Shangaan dancers and singers entertain you and the Restaurant has its own sangoma - a traditional storyteller. Join in the interactive drumming!
