Depart Busanga Plains on a scheduled light aircraft flight to Livingstone. On arrival at Livingstone airport, transfer by road to your hotel for a two-night stay on bed and breakfast basis. This includes a guided tour of the Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe side) and a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River. Any other activities are at additional cost.
For the guided tour of Victoria Falls you will need a multiple-entry visa for Zimbabwe, but it is well worth it. The 1.7 kilometre-long ramble through the rainforest takes around 1.5 hours. After a briefing and explanation of the falls, your guide will accompany you along a series of scenic pathways, stopping at various viewpoints to gaze at the falls.
As you sail upstream on two-hour sunset cruise on the Zambezi, you will learn about the river and its wildlife, while you relax and enjoy the beautiful views, rich birdlife, many hippos and occasional crocodile. The wide, attractive river – the fourth largest in Africa – is dotted with islands and sandbanks, and during the drier months, you may see elephant and many antelope species grazing on the banks, or even swimming out to the islands. The boat offers plenty of shade, comfortable seating, tables, bar service, snacks and toilet facilities.
During your stay at Livingstone/Victoria Falls various optional adrenaline activities can be booked locally at additional cost – these include whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, gorge swing, and microlighting over the falls.
To make the most of your stay at the falls, why not consider upgrading to Toka Leya Camp or The River Club? This option is available at additional cost on a fully inclusive basis, in which case scheduled activities such as cultural, museum and market tours, morning/evening game drives in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, and morning/evening boat cruises on the Zambezi River are all included.
