You will be met after passing through customs at the Livingstone Airport and transferred to Tongabezi Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River. The camp manager will sit down with you to discuss all the available activities including when you would like to visit the Victoria Falls. The Falls are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and are the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar in full flood and creates a magnificent spray of water that can be seen for miles – hence the local name ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’. Water flow over the Falls varies throughout the year. The river’s annual flood season is February to May when the spray can reach a height of over 400m, this is spectacular from above but it can be difficult to see the Falls at ground level as it is under a heavy shower/mist around April. Water levels start dropping in August and are at their driest just before the rains in October/November.
A guided tour of Victoria Falls, cultural, museum and market tours, morning or evening game drives in Mosi-Oa-Tunya Park and morning or evening boat cruises on the Zambezi River. Livingstone is rated as one of the world’s top destinations for adrenaline and river activities. The most popular of these include (at additional cost) seasonal white water rafting, bungee jumping, gorge swing, microlighting over the Falls, brunch and breakfast canoe trips on the Zambezi and Falls edge dining.
