DAY 01


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.

Day 02


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 off 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.

Afternoon at Leisure or join a “Why Not?” optional tour
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 03


The Caprivi Strip, just 70kms west of Victoria Falls, is a very interesting area. Not only does the Zambezi River form the borders of 4 countries here (Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia) but this is also the location of one of Africa’s finest natural game reserves – the Chobe National Park. The added presence of the equally intriguing Chobe River (in one season the water flows downstream and in the other it flows upstream) brings a myriad of game and rare bird species to this natural wilderness.

The Park boasts the Big Five and the river teems with hippos and crocodiles which can be viewed both from boats and safari vehicles. It is to this “animal paradise” that participants will be taken after an early breakfast at the hotel.
After an hour’s drive through the Zambezi National Park, quick border formalities are carried out into Botswana before proceeding into the national park. Chobe River cruises and Game drives have to be one of the finest game viewing experiences in Africa. With over 80 000 elephant in the park alone they are a very frequent sighting. Hippo, water birds, buffalo, crocodile and puku are also viewed from the river.

After a long day of adventure, we’ll return you to Rainbow Falls Hotel for dinner and a good night’s rest.

Day 04

On this half-day tour we’ll be crossing the border into Zambia, so you’ll need to bring your passport and there may be a visa fee.

Interesting fact: Due to malaria outbreaks, the town of Livingstone was moved from its original site at the Old Drift in 1905 to its healthier location on Constitution hill. The town was carefully planned with wide streets lined with trees; a lot of the original architecture is still in place today. The tour includes the visit to the Livingstone Museum, which displays a comprehensive collection of David Livingstone memorabilia. We’ll also pay a visit to the bustling and colourful Maramba Market, where you’ll find everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to chitenge (local fabric). Or, even more exciting, the Salaula market, where you’ll see large displays of second hand clothes, a great favorite of the locals.

Optionally, guests can join a tour of Victoria Falls from the Zambian side of the border.

At the end of the day you’ll be transferred back to the Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel.

Day 05


After a delicious breakfast, we’ll transfer you from Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel to the all-inclusive Hwange Safari Lodge.
Hwange Safari Lodge is situated just outside the borders of the well-known Hwange National Park, and essentially forms part of the Park. At Hwange Safari Lodge, guests are accommodated in 100 tastefully decorated rooms and suites, all en-suite and with air-conditioning, fan and heating. All rooms overlook either the waterhole, savanna bush or swimming pool. Guests shouldn’t be too surprised if they can spot a curious elephant from their window.

Day 06


Today we explore Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest National Park. The park encapsulates 14,600 square kilometers of unspoiled wilderness. Affectionately referred to by many as a “wildlife wonderland”, Hwange National Park is home to 107 species of animals and over 400 species of birds.

It supports a large number of rhino, antelope, buffalo, zebra and giraffe, some of which are a veritable feast for the big cats and scavengers who roam the area in a ceaseless search for prey.

It is also one of the world’s largest elephant sanctuaries – elephant can be seen in herds of one hundred or more, following the ancient migration routes from one waterhole to the next. During the morning and afternoon game drives into the reserve you might
See the lion, leopard, kudu, and wildebeest amongst a huge variety of Wildlife.

Day 07


After a whirlwind journey, we must say farewell as we transfer you back to Victoria Falls Airport, a trip that takes about 2hrs 30min.
