The activities below are among some of the most popular on offer in Victoria Falls, and may be booked through the Activities Desk:
Sunset Cruise. Sit back, relax and soak up the last rays of the African sun as you gently drift along the Zambezi River above the Falls with a gin and tonic in hand and enjoying delicious snacks. Look out for elephant, hippo, crocodile, magnificent birds and other wildlife.
Game Drives. There is no better way to explore the African bush than on a guided game drive in an open safari vehicle. Game drives are in the early morning and late afternoon. As well as numerous bird species, wildlife that may be seen on the game drive, taken through Zambezi National Park, includes elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, and other antelope.
Helicopter Safari. Sign up for a breath-taking bird’s-eye view of the majestic Victoria Falls and surrounding areas. There are three different types of flights that depart regularly throughout the day – a 15-minute flight takes you above the Victoria Falls, a 22-minute flight also takes you over Batoka Gorge and the Zambezi River, while a 25-minute flight includes game viewing opportunities over the Zambezi National Park.
Victoria Falls Rainforest Guided Tour. Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the largest curtain of falling water in the world. On this tour, you will be accompanied through the Rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the Falls, as well as detailing the flora, fauna and other points of interest.
