African Safari Vacation Package to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe / Zambia
‘Scenes so beautiful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight’ is how David Livingston described the wonder that is the Victoria Falls. As a natural wonder of the world the Victoria Falls offer visitors the widest range of activities in Africa from the serenity of an evening boat cruise on the Zambezi River to the adrenaline overload of plunging down the raging rapids below the Falls in a white water raft.
Aside from viewing from the ground visitors can take a flight over the Victoria Falls in a helicopter or light aircraft for a different perspective. Adventure activities include bungee jumping, white water rafting, gorge swinging and parachuting among many.
For something different guests can interact with a pride of lions during a walk in the neighbouring park or experience the park from the back of an elephant. Game drives are also offered in Victoria Falls National Park for those wanting a more traditional safari experience.
Best time to travel to Victoria Falls
The best time to travel to Victoria Falls is during the winter months when the water levels are not too high and not too low. When the water is very high, visibility is limited as are the activities such as white water rafting.
The Victoria Falls are shared by Zambia and Zimbabwe and can be accessed from Victoria Falls town in Zimbabwe or Livingstone in Zambia. Numerous international flights, predominantly from Johannesburg in South Africa, land at both towns' airports.
Roads to the Victoria Falls are in good condition and access is easy. The immigration procedures between the two countries are simple and quick and it is possible to walk across the border to visit each country.
