Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by a Sense of Africa representative and transferred by road to your hotel.
One of the original natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle straddles both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white-water rafting in the world.
During your stay in Victoria Falls, you will enjoy a guided tour of the falls which takes approximately 2 hours. This includes the fascinating history on the discovery of the falls reflecting that in November 1855, Dr David Livingstone was transported in a canoe by the local Makalolo people to the very edge of these falls.
The sensitive Scotsman was so overwhelmed by his first sight of these spectacular falls, that he momentarily abandoned his scientific observations and recorded, “It has never been seen before by European eyes, but scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. The good missionary, whose heart lies buried in Africa, named this great wonder of the world after Victoria, his British queen.
A thrilling stay in Victoria Falls will end off by watching the sun setting over the Zambezi by cruising on the luxurious and exclusive Ra-Ikane boat. From the Zambezi River, a variety of wildlife can be seen including hippo, crocodiles and elephants that often make the daring journey across the vast expanse of the river.
