Victoria Falls
South Africa

The essence of Victoria Falls, the world's largest waterfall.

Victoria Falls are spectacular and of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.

To experience the falls for yourself, please see our add-on package below.
Many clients wish to combine a trip to South Africa with a visit to Victoria Falls, one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena. To this end we have put together a three day add on package to facilitate this request. You have a choice of staying on the Zambian side of the Falls or the Zimbabwe side. The two hotels shown below in each location will be the ones used for this add-on.

If you fly into Livingstone, Zambia then you will need a Yellow Fever Certificate whereas you will not need one if staying in Zimbabwe.

The Itinerary shown below is the same for both locations but many of our clients who stay in Zimbabwe opt to then continue their holiday in Botswana; a vast expanse of untamed desert wilderness that has life breathed into it by mighty rivers. Large herds of free ranging Elephant and Antelope lead to a healthy predator population, which in turn means great game viewing.

With a Botswana excursion after Victoria falls, you can enjoy the stunning Chobe National park and the breathtaking Okavango Delta. From here you can fly directly from Kasane back to Johannesburg making the trip even simpler for you.

Below are the two hotels in each location and a simple 3 day add-on itinerary.

Zambezi Sun, Zambia
Zambezi Sun is a Gobi style hotel simply finished with bright mosaic colours and fabrics close by to the magnificent Victoria Falls. The accommodation is in eight buildings round a central pool area and the complex is serviced by a centrally located check-in area, restaurant and bar. Widely used by The Independent Traveller clients over the last few years, it has proved to be a highly popular hotel within easy access to all the attractions of the local area.

Royal Livingstone Hotel, Zambia
One of the Leading Hotels of the World, this 5 star property is located along the banks of the Zambezi River, just a short walk away from Victoria Falls itself. The superbly furnished rooms and thatched main building with its wide verandas demonstrate its heritage and roots in the colonial past. The Royal Livingstone offers a superb dining room experience with a wide choice of dishes, and also a river deck bar where you can watch the rainbows form in the spray from the Falls as the sun sets.

Victoria Falls Hotel, Zimbabwe
The Victoria Falls Hotel is synonomous with genteel relaxation yet the hotel is so centrally placed it is perfectly positioned to enjoy all there is to offer in Victoria Falls from cruises and visits to the Victoria Falls rainforest to the extreme heart racing adrenaline activities.

Kingdom Hotel at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
The Kingdom Hotel in Victoria Falls by Africa Sun is the closest Hotel to the Victoria Falls.The Kingdom at Victoria Falls is situated within the Victoria Falls National Park, a World Heritage Site, and the Zambezi National Park. This is a fun-filled resort hotel aimed unashamedly at the tourist who wants to take in the majesty and excitement of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World as well as enjoy a holiday adventure as part of a group, with someone special, with the children, or as a single traveller.


Day 1 - Your First Glimpse Of The Falls…

Depart Johannesburg for Livingstone on your mid-morning flight. On arrival transfer to Mosi-oa-tunya National Park. This park lies adjacent to the Zambezi River and the Falls themselves, and as such you can have 24 hour access to the beautiful Falls area without further cost.

Day 2 - Late Afternoon Cruise…

After a leisurely breakfast you will transfer to the Zimbabwean side, which provides a different perspective as the Falls relentlessly cascade 350 ft. After lunch, you will return to the Zambian side in time to board your late afternoon Sundowner Cruise, which gives you access to some tremendous bird life and the opportunity to see the hippos at play.

Day 3 - Your Last Glimpse Of The Falls…

Around lunchtime you will transfer back to Livingstone Airport for your mid afternoon return flight to Johannesburg.

Please note: if you choose the Zimbabwe hotels, you will fly in and out of Zimbabwe not Livingstone
