Victoria Falls Touring
One of the Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls is breathtakingly beautiful! To stand opposite the falls and feel the enormous power and the spray that shoots hundreds of feet into the air is a sight to behold. The best part of all is that the falls are not the only experience to enjoy. Victoria Falls touring includes numerous unique activities that families will love.
Your private Victoria Falls touring guide will escort you throughout your stay and ensure that your every need is catered to. We offer memorable adventures such as with elephant rides, scenic helicopter tours of the falls, fishing for tiger fish on the Zambezi River, guided shopping at the local markets, sunset cruises, lion walks, private Chobe park game drives, private chobe river safaris, overnights in the bush of the Chobe national park in Botswana only an hour and a half away.
The adventure is all around you in Victoria Falls…you could walk out your hotel to find elephants in the driveway! Mosi-Oa-Tunya – the smoke that thunders – over a mile wide as it plunges nearly 400 ft into the Zambezi gorge below. When David Livingstone saw the Falls for the first time in 1855 he wrote “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” and today you can take the “Flight of Angels” a helicopter or light aircraft flight over the Falls which gives you the ultimate view of this magnificent wonder. This excursion can be combined with visits to Hwange National Park in northwestern Zimbabwe, Lake Kariba to the east, Chobe National Park in Botswana and various camps in the Okavango Delta.
Take a look at a video taken in April of the Falls by helicopter under the activities tab!
