Overview

Introduction

Nothing will prepare you for the awesome power and spectacle that is Victoria Falls. It is the world's largest sheet of falling water. As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, and the Zambezi River which feeds the Falls are also the natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It goes by two official names; Victoria Falls and Mosi-oa-Tunya which translates as The Smoke that Thunders. Its spray can be seen 40kms away and the sound rumbles through the basalt cliffs of the gorge into which it plummets. Not only is it beautiful, it’s also the location of some of the most memorable experiences you’ll ever have.

Itinerary

+ Day 1

After a mid-morning flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone in Zambia, you’ll be met at the airport by a tour representative and transferred to the Avani Victoria Falls Resort, a mere 5-minute walk from the Falls themselves. All Avani guests have unlimited access to the Victoria Falls. After checking-in, you will discover the fabulous experiences already in store for you. This part of Africa has so many adventures and delights that you may decide to reserve a place on other experiences as well. As you settle in, you can choose to relax and unwind in the expansive pool, lounge on the deck, enjoy a delicious light snack, or stroll the beautiful Avani grounds. Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy the gardens. You may meet zebras, buck or even warthogs!

+ Day 2

The next morning starts with a delicious breakfast before you head off on a guided walking tour of the majestic Victoria Falls. It’s an otherworldly experience with awe-inspiring views, double rainbows, cooling mists, spray laden flowers, ferns and trees that grow in this rain forest thanks to the abundantly water-laden atmosphere created by the thundering Falls. After shopping in the local market, you will return to the resort to relax before experiencing the Zambezi River in a more up-close and personal way – on board the African Queen for a 2-hour Sunset Cruise. As you float luxuriously along the Zambezi River, which is also the boundary of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, you will enjoy a fabulous feast of delicious snacks and drinks. The Zambezi River is a feast for your eyes and your soul. Elephant, drinking along the shore or even swimming across the river, hippo poking their eyes and snouts above the water to watch you pass by, crocodiles sunning themselves on sandbanks, not to mention antelope, buffalo, fish eagles with their echoing lament, an iconic sound of the rivers of Southern Africa, and stately giraffe. Once back at the resort, the evening is at your leisure.

+ Day 3

There’s nothing like the birdlife of Africa to make rising early an absolute joy, and you’ll need an early start today for your Chobe National Park experience. Chobe is in Botswana and it’s important to arrive at the border post just as it opens. What’s so special about Chobe? This famous national park covers a huge range, 11 700 square kms of the spectacular Northern Kalahari, unlike anywhere else on earth. It’s the perfect place to go on safari, and that includes the Chobe Riverfront, along which your safari begins. A leisurely three-hour game-viewing cruise on the Chobe River is the perfect way to experience the timelessness of the African bush and its animals. On the river you can see the abundant birdlife from Goliath herons to delicate waders and the African skimmers whose fishing skills are truly something to see. There are also the massed pods of hippos, the rugged and seemingly prehistoric crocodiles, as well as the imposing yet maternal herds of elephant and the nervous, yet beautiful antelope that drink from the Chobe River. After lunch, you will explore the park beyond the river in a 4x4 safari vehicle with an experienced guide. Beautiful wilderness, open grasslands, lush flood plains and dense woodlands means that there is habitat for almost every kind of African animal that makes its home in Southern Africa. Prides of lions are common and the mighty herds of buffalo and elephant are among the largest anywhere. Returning to your hotel, where you will have dinner and the evening at leisure, your dreams will be filled with the majesty that is Africa at its finest.
