Half and Full Day Tours Victoria Falls Zambia

 

Tour of the Falls – Zambia

Operates:           

Daily pick up from selected Livingstone Hotels 

Duration:

2 Hours

Includes:

Transportation and visit to Victoria Falls as per itinerary

Includes Park Fee (correct as at 11/9/13 – subject to change).

Notes:

From November to December we recommend booking a tour of the Falls on the Zimbabwe side due to low water levels on the Zambian side.  Minimum two persons.

Discover how the Falls were formed and what local customs and traditions surround them it in a tour of the Victoria Falls. Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’ and in more modern terms as ‘the greatest known curtain of falling water’, Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe. A path along the edge of the forest provides the visitor who is prepared to brave the tremendous spray with an unparalleled series of views of the Falls. One special vantage point is across the Knife edge bridge, where visitors can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include the Falls bridge and the Lookout Tree which commands a panoramic view across the Main Falls. Different times of the year will provide completely different experiences of the Falls region. Peak flood season is around March and April and the full power of the falls can be experienced in all its glory. As the floods abate the view of the falls gets better and better through the year, but at it’s lowest, around November and December the Falls become little rivulets running over the edge and in some places along the 1,7km width no water falls at all.
