Day 1 - 2
Victoria Falls impresses all the senses. You can hear the falls from a luxury riverside lodge, a thunderous rumbling that floats upriver. Approaching the park’s walking path, there’s a refreshing scent of fresh water, one that flickers through a thick woodland awning. Next, you see them, a mile-wide sheet of falling water, disappearing over the lip and into a chasm. Rainbows spiral in the mist that rises from the canyon, moss clings to sections of the falls, and the sheer abundance of water can be baffling. Finally, you get to really feel Victoria Falls. The first sections of the walkway take you to lookout points beneath the trees. These continue to an unprotected stretch of cliffs. Sprays of mist rise from the canyon and soak you in seconds, a display of nature’s power that lives with you for eternity.
Victoria Falls is a fabulous example of power. It’s also an insight into how wild and unruly Africa’s nature has always been. Close to the falls, you’ll see baboons and hippos, along with a handful of ungulates. On a boat trip to the lip of the falls, you’ll appreciate just how fast the Zambezi flows. And on a helicopter ride above Victoria Falls, you’ll explore the mesmerizing scale of the spectacle. Serene and surreal, Victoria Falls is a relaxed place to start any African adventure. Transfers to the airport and the national park gate are included, along with the different activities. After the flight to Zimbabwe, there’s also lots of downtime to recuperate and reenergize, preparing yourself for the adventure to come.
