Extra Options

Optional Extension To Victoria Falls – 2 Nights @ Palm River Hotel (Double Occ)
Available until June 23, 2023

$980.00

On arrival in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe you are transferred to your lodge on the Zimbabwe side of the falls and check in for the next two nights.

The Victoria Falls constitutes one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. The Local people call it "Mosi-oa-Tunya" - the smoke that thunders and the falls are remarkable. There is a magic about them manifested in the towering column of spray when the river is high, the thunder of the falling water, the terrifying abyss and tranquil lagoons upstream in which hippo and deadly crocodiles lurk. The Victoria Falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world.  It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic meters of water plummet over the edge every minute. Remarkably preserved in its natural state, Victoria Falls inspires visitors as much today as it did David Livingstone in the 1860's. The falls and the surrounding area have been declared National Parks and a World Heritage Site, thus preserving the area from excessive commercialization.

Includes:

  • Sunset cruise on the Zambezi Explorer  -  watch hippo, crocodiles and other animals which come down to the river’s edge in the early evening to quench their thirst.
  • Morning Tour of the Victoria Falls
  • Dinner at the Boma Restaurant

Here's 5 reasons you might need travel insurance, if you haven't opted in already:
  1. Emergencies while traveling – can happen to loved ones at home or to you and your fellow travelers during your trip
  2. Conflicts in schedules – it's hard to anticipate what future events you may need to attend
  3. Illness or injury – who wants to travel with a sprained ankle?
  4. Lifestyle changes – it's inevitable. Our lives can change in the blink of an eye. 
  5. Severe weather – here or there!
