Day by Day Overview

The safari begins in Victoria Falls, a small tourist town on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. The main attraction is of course the thundering falls but the town attracts adventure travelers from around the world because of the number of extreme sports that are on offer. Popular activities include helicopter and microlight flights over the falls, bungee jumping, white water rafting and jet boat rides. The town also offers some excellent restaurant options and an array of Zimbabwean curios. In the evening you will make your way to the river for a dinner cruise on the Zambezi Reflections, a floating restaurant offering magnificent views of the sunset as the day draws to a close.
