Enjoy one last game drive on your way to the airstrip, where you will meet the short light aircraft flight north to Victoria Falls. You will be met and transferred to your lodge, about 30 minutes outside of town on the town lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls. It is a lovely tourist town which is easy to explore on foot and which offers a wide range of activities from the challenge of white water rafting and to bungee jumping.
The Victoria Falls are one of the natural Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100 m drop across nearly 2 km makes a thunderous roar 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 400 m, this is spectacular from above but it makes it very difficult to see the Falls at ground level as it is under a heavy shower/mist. Water levels start dropping in August and are at their lowest October-December when much of the rocky face becomes dry. At times of low water, the falls are best viewed from the Zimbabwe side.
On day 8, the morning is at your leisure until it’s time for your return transfer to the Victoria Falls Airport to meet your departing flights. Breakfast included.
