Stops are made at various vantage points for incredible views of the Falls, the mighty Zambezi as well as neighbouring Zambia.

Relaxing in luxurious surroundings, with easy access to Victoria Falls and many wonderful included experiences – what better way could there be to round off your Spectacular South Africa tour? By adding another three-nights, this time in neighbouring Botswana at Chobe National Park, home to an abundance of wildlife. Our six-night Victoria Falls & Chobe National Park extension is the ultimate finale to your tour of South Africa.

Day 1: Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), 3 nights

A morning departure takes us to Johannesburg Airport in time for our flight to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Upon arrival, and having cleared customs, our waiting vehicle will transfer us to the outstanding Ilala Lodge Hotel. If travelling before September 2022 you will stay at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. This afternoon join your travelling companions for a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, which is a relaxing experience where hopefully we may sight hippopotamus, crocodile, elephant and other wildlife species.


Included meals: Breakfast


Day 2: Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe. Columns of spray can be seen up to 40 kilometres (25 miles) away as 546 million cubic metres of water per minute plummet over the edge (at the height of the rainy season). This morning we take you on a walking tour of the falls to discover its magnitude, grace and beauty. Stops will be made at the various vantage points, so we may take in the incredible views of the falls, the mighty Zambezi as well as neighbouring Zambia. In the afternoon we are free to enjoy a whole array of optional activities: fishing for tiger fish in the Zambezi, horseback safaris, or take in the ultimate view of the falls on board a scenic helicopter flight. Enjoy your afternoon!


Included meals: Breakfast and dinner


Day 3: Victoria Falls Freedom Day

A Freedom Day in Victoria Falls to spend as you please. We would highly recommend a visit to Chobe National Park in neighbouring Botswana – home to the highest concentration of elephants in Africa. Enjoy a boat cruise along the Chobe River, famous for its huge herds of elephant which can be viewed up-close and safely from the boat. Afterwards enjoy an abundance of wildlife as you explore the Chobe riverfront by open safari vehicle. Large herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game, along with their accompanying predators have made this their home. Return to Zimbabwe and the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge early evening.


Included meals: Breakfast


Day 4: Depart Victoria Falls and Johannesburg

Sadly we must leave Victoria Falls today. Mid-morning we make our way to Victoria Falls airport in time for our flight to Johannesburg bringing our wonderful 3 night Victoria Falls experience to an end.

Note: Customers will be booked on a connecting flight from Johannesburg to the UK. Either via Frankfurt, if flying with Lufthansa, or London Heathrow if travelling with British Airways. Your flight will arrive into the UK the following morning.


Included meals: Breakfast and in-flight dinner and drinks

Excellent value for money, everything as per the brochure itinerary and sometimes more. Every day brought something different, the safaris were eye openers and we were so glad we added on Victoria Falls as that really was the highlight of the holiday - a lovely way to end our three weeks.
