Victoria Falls 1 Night Experience
Spend a night near the magnificent Victoria Falls, and explore it at your leisure.
If time is scarce, you simply can’t miss Victoria Falls. But first, relax on a leisurely sunset cruise, and enjoy a rousing traditional boma dinner, including entertainment from a local dance troupe. In the morning you’ll have plenty of time to take in the spectacular Falls.
ITINERARY 2 DAYS
DAY 01WELCOME TO ZIMBABWE
On arrival at the Victoria Falls airport, you will be met by a Batoka Safaris representative and transferred to the Rainbow Hotel where an escort will assist with check in.
Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel
This oriental-style hotel with its unique character has 88 air-conditioned rooms. The hotel was recently renovated with 40 stunning rooms being added to its portfolio. Rainbow Hotel is situated within walking distance from all the facilities in Victoria Falls with the Mighty Victoria Falls only 2 km away. Conference facilities are also available at the hotel. The lovely swim and sip bar will keep you cool. The hotel offers a unique panorama platform for viewing the surrounding areas.
15h30-16h00 Pickup for the Sunset cruise
In the afternoon, we’ll take you on a Sundowner Cruise along the Zambezi River. There is no better way to end the day than to watch the African Sun slip down beneath the horizon, while sipping drinks and enjoying light snacks. Birds, hippos and crocodiles abound in their natural habitat.
19h00 Boma dinner
Partially open to the African skies and sheltered by the indigenous Gusu forest lies the award-winning Boma restaurant. This offers a unique African experience that bombards the senses with the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of Africa – together with the warmth and hospitality of Zimbabwe and its people. Specializing in a superb selection of traditional Zimbabwean dishes, fish, a variety of game meat and potjiekos (hunter’s stew) – as well as vegetarian meals – diners are invited to sample such ethnic delicacies as deep fried kapenta, famous mopani worms, and groundnuts.
Traditional customs such as local beer tasting and pre-dinner hand washing are observed, and Ndebele performers will captivate diners with their vibrant and energetic songs and dances.
Steeped in mystery, a witchdoctor adds a touch of drama and after dinner guests are invited to while away the evening with the restaurant’s sangoma – a traditional storyteller – to learn more about the country’s folklore, culture and heritage.
Day 02GUIDED TOUR OF THE FALLS
After an early start, our first stop will be at the “Big Tree”, an ancient Baobab some 16 meters in girth. The tour proper will kick with an explanation of the geology of the Victoria Falls. We’ll then take you on an extensive tour, from Livingstone View to the Devil’s Cataract, on to the Main Falls, past the Rainbow Falls and finally to Danger Point.
Transfer back to Victoria Falls Airport
After a whirlwind journey, we must say farewell as we transfer you back to Victoria Falls Airport, a trip that takes about 2hrs 30min.
