Upon arrival into Johannesburg, connect flight to Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls. Upon arrival, take a tour of the Victoria Falls, one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World. The Victoria Falls forms the largest curtain of falling water on earth measuring 1708m wide and with an average depth of 92m. If conditions are right, the spray plume is 500m high and can be seen from as far as 70km away. In full flood, over 550 million litres of water per minute are cascading over its brink. You will begin with a guided tour of Victoria Fall’s first viewpoint – Devil’s Cataract, and then walk along the route to a different viewpoint, angle and height. After that, visit the unique local village. There we discover the “palace” of the village chief (external viewing), the village prison and the village “hall”, which is actually under a big tree. We also have the opportunity to make family visits for a better appreciation of rural African culture and lifestyle. Our final stop is the village’s art & craft centre, where you can shop for traditional handmade wooden and stone sculptures at bargain prices.
After breakfast, you will cross the border and go to another magnificent African country – Botswana, and visit Chobe Safari Lodge.

Return to Zimbabwe at sunset for overnight stay.
