Arrival in Victoria Falls
Flight from Maun to Victoria Falls airport, met and transferred to hotel for 3 night stay
Explore the Zambezi River on board an eco-friendly, modern boat offering a luxury cruise experience with all the trimmings. Just stepping aboard the Zambezi Explorer you start to relax. The staff are professional yet with good humour and genuine warmth, the food is of the highest quality and the scenery is nothing short of spectacular.
As for the boat itself, the Zambezi Explorer is a stylish, custom-built vessel with three decks. The lower two decks are the restaurant, while the upper Signature Deck is the VIP lounge and bar (it costs a bit more but is well worth the experience). The Zambezi Explorer runs exclusively on solar energy, so the engine whispers along quietly without disturbing the wildlife or sense of peace.
The Zambezi Explorer offers daily cruises including sunrise breakfasts, lunches, dinners and – the most popular of all – the sunset cruise. Glide upstream keeping an eye out for pods of hippo and the occasional herd of elephant bathing in the river. Then drift back down, toasting the brilliant red sunset as waiters serve cocktails and delicious canapés.
Guided tour of falls
A tour around the Victoria Falls affords not only a view of one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World but information about their creation and geology, the unique eco-system of the rainforest, daring exploits of colonial explorers and magical tales of local legend under the constant spray from the “The Smoke that Thunders”.
Dinner at the Boma
This Boma is located on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge grounds and a wonderful experience
An evening filled with entertainment from Amakwezi traditional dancers to a local story teller and a fortune teller. Don’t rush off after dinner, as you can join in the drumming extravaganza from 21h00, which is always a highlight of the evening.
The Boma specialises in a superb selection of traditional Zimbabwean dishes and is renowned for its warthog fillet. Tuck into a four-course meal of mouth watering starters from the kitchen, soup from the campfire, a substantial barbeque buffet served on cast iron plates with a selection of salads, followed by a choice of delicious desserts. Everyone’s tastes are catered for, and whilst the adventurous are enticed with local delicacies such as Mopani worms and game stews, those wishing to enjoy beef, pork, fish and chicken or a variety of vegetarian meals are welcome to do so.
