You'll spend your first night floating on the great Zambezi River and hopefully watching hippos and elephants as they walk along the rivers edge at sunset. The following day you'll have a private guided tour of the falls then visit one of the local villages. You'll finish off the day with lunch at the Royal Livingstone Hotel. The following day we'll take you to the airport.

Situated on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls, in Livingstone, the Zambezi Sun is a 3 star quality hotel that is conveniently placed a 5 minute walk from the splash of water. The hotel has 212 rooms and a deliberate aged feel as it resembles a grand estate from times past. Dining is splendid, with the option of a pricey buffet or exceptionally fulfilling a la carte restaurant. The landscaped swimming pool and lounging area are definitely relaxing and worth some time, perhaps with a book or good conversation. Many choose to stay at this hotel for its proximity to the Victoria Falls, which are gorgeous and a must-see. Victoria Falls, the world's largest falls cascade across a sheer rock face over 1km wide, mere meters away from visitors. The falls form the border between Livingstone (Zambia) and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). Livingstone features fine hotels and a broad array of adrenaline activities from ultralight and helicopter flights, white water rafting, river cruises, bungee, elephant-back safaris, and much more - it is a great spot to visit. Flight connections are limited to Lusaka.
Day 2 - Livingstone
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. Later this morning you'll visit the Simonga Village, home to approximately 3000 inhabitants – a mixture of the Lozi and Tonga tribes. The village was founded in 1958 and is situated approximately 20 kilometers from Livingstone Town, along the Kazungula/Sesheke road, which runs parallel to the Zambezi River as it flows down towards the Victoria Falls. This village is quite unique as it one of only three in the entire country of Zambia that is ruled by a Headwoman, Inonge Imusho Samachila, who was chosen by the Royal Family to rule in 1970, following the death of her father, Imusho Samachila. Upon arrival, guests are escorted through the village by a local resident, where they are introduced to the daily activities of an African village. You'll then be taken back to the Royal Livingstone Golf Club for lunch. Enjoy lunch (included in tour price). Sign up for optional activities at your hotel (not included in tour price); helicopter, ultralight, Gypsy Moth flights, elephantback or horseback safari, whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, Chobe game park day trip, jet boat, cultural tours, and more. Enjoy dinner at leisure (not included in tour price). Overnight at Zambezi Sun.
