Victoria Falls & Zambia Tour

Tour Features:
The Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This mighty waterfall forms a spectacular backdrop to the Zambezi Sun & Royal Livingston hotels along the Zambian banks of the great Zambezi River. Special attention has been given to re-cultivating many different species of indigenous plants to recreate a totally natural environment, so that the two hotels on the resort blend harmoniously with the surrounding landscape.

Tour Details:
Day 1 Johannesburg to Livingstone - Zambia
Depart from OR Tambo (Johannesburg) International Airport and fly to Livingstone Airport in Zambia. On arrival you will be met by a representative who will transfer you to your selected hotel. On arrival check in and have the afternoon at leisure to either relax or take a walk to the nearby Victoria Falls.
The Zambian side of the Victoria Falls provides an entirely different experience to its better-known Zimbabwean counterpart. The views are more spectacular and you can get right up to the falling water by walking down a steep track to the base of The Falls and follow spindly walkways perched over the abyss.

This is where you can unwind, relax and enjoy Africa's greatest natural wonder in true Zambian style, or where you can test your courage by experiencing a number of thrilling, heart-stopping adventurous challenges. This hotel, with its warm, earthy architecture, inspired by an African walled village, is set to turn your stay into a memorable experience.

Curved seductively against the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the five star Royal Livingstone Hotel stretches nymph-like along the river bank in a series of private villas. For the more discerning traveller in search of luxury, extravagance and sheer indulgence, there can be no better place than the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Set in the lush riverine belt and touching the banks of the great Zambezi River, this earthly paradise provides a serene haven at the most magical place in Africa. It's a place that will ignite your heart and soothe your soul, where you can enjoy the incredible majesty of Africa and witness one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. Every detail of this 5-star luxury hotel captures the opulence and elegance of times gone, while echoing the stunning diversity of the African bush.


River Cruises: Experience the spellbinding combination of the mighty Zambezi River and the extravagance and gracious hospitality of the African Queen or African Princess river-boat cruise.

Exclusive Livingstone Island: is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, on the edge of the Victoria Falls, where the water thunders down the 100m drop.

Bridge Tours: Designed by Sir Ralph Freeman, who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, this engineering feat linking Zimbabwe and Zambia spans 152 metres.

Microlight Flights: Fly through the spray of the falls and over the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park, fly along the mighty Zambezi River and view hippo and elephants from the air. This truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Helicopter Flights: Discover the majesty of the Victoria Falls aboard a helicopter, an adventure you will never forget.

Horseback Safaris: One of the finest ways to experience the bush is on horseback. There is a chance to see small game such as bushbuck or duiker, plus hippos and crocodiles along the river, and in the dry season elephants.

Elephant Back Safaris or walking with Elephants: The six huge, but gentle elephants, offer their broad grey backs to two riders at a time, as the ultimate viewpoint from which to get a closer look at the game or take a glimpse of the day in the life of an African Elephant. Walk through some of Zambia's most pristine scenery as the elephants go about their day roaming free in the bush to browse, play, socialize and sometimes swim.

'4x4' Game Safari On Water: This is a wildlife river safari, catering specifically for nature lovers as opposed to adrenaline seekers.

Canoe Safaris: What better way to discover the peace and tranquillity of the Zambezi River than in a two-person canoe. Experience the contrasts of this great river as you paddle leisurely with the current.

White Water Rafting: This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to raft what is considered the wildest one-day white water rafting experience in the world.

Jet-Boat Extreme: Feel the wind in your hair and the cooling spray as you hurtle along at over 80km/h towards a series of spine-chilling rapids, buzzing rocks and jet-spinning on the mighty Zambezi River, in the spectacular Batoka Gorge below the Victoria Falls.

Abseiling, Gorge Swing And Flying Fox: Over the edge! Like an alpine mountaineer, abseil backwards or rap-jump forwards down the gorge, for approximately 50m. Or launch yourself off the edge in a full body harness and free fall for 53 metres, the gorge swing ends with numerous pendulum swings before you are lowered into the gorge for your walk out. For a not-so-scary experience, the Flying Fox is a cable-slide allowing you a view of the gorge from a seated or face-down flying position.

Bungee Jumping: "Five, four, three, two, one, bungeeee!" At 111 metres, it's one of the highest commercial jumps in the world, so hurling yourself off the Victoria Falls Bridge is definitely for adventure thrill-seekers only!
