Victoria Falls Tour

Home Icon 3 night Victoria Falls from £1,595pp

Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of awe-inspiring beauty, described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 19th century as Mosi-oa-Tunya: ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. As Victoria Falls is only a short flight from Johannesburg, it makes an ideal extension to your African touring holiday and is available on our In Search of the Big Five, Namibian Rail Safari, South African Rail Discovery, Spectacular South Africa and Very Best of South Africa tours.

Among the unmissable included activities on our three-night tour extension are a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, and a walking tour of Victoria Falls to explore its magnitude, grace and beauty. Stops are made at various vantage points for incredible views of the Falls, the mighty Zambezi as well as neighbouring Zambia.

You could also add another three nights to your adventure, 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.

Victoria Falls, 3 nights from only £1,595 per person

Among the unmissable included activities are a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, and a walking tour of Victoria Falls to explore its magnitude, grace and beauty, the mighty Zambezi as well as neighbouring Zambia. Read on to discover more.

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 or its sister property, the Palm River Hotel. This afternoon, we join a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, a relaxing experience where we hope to see hippopotamus, crocodile and elephant as well as 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. Your flight will arrive into the UK the following morning.

Included meals: Breakfast and in-flight dinner and drinks
