Day 1: Arrival in Livingstone, Zambia
Upon your arrival at Livingstone Airport on the Zambian side of the falls, a Safari Desire representative will be there to greet you and facilitate your transfer to the hotel. (Please note that flights from Johannesburg/Cape Town/elsewhere are not included but can be arranged upon request).
Once you’ve checked in and refreshed yourself, our local guide will accompany you on your initial guided tour of the falls. This introductory tour aims to acquaint you with the local surroundings and geographical layout.
Your accommodation in Livingstone will be at the esteemed Royal Livingstone Lodge, a premier 5-star hotel located on the banks of the Zambezi River, just above the falls. The hotel provides splendid views of the islands in the river, with the added delight of observing elephants and hippos swimming to and from the islands. The walkways on the Zambia side offer several viewpoints showcasing the far eastern end of Victoria Falls, including panoramic views and frontal perspectives of the cataract across the Knife Edge Bridge.
Day 2: Experience the Magnificence of Victoria Falls (Zambian Side)
Consider taking a stroll to the falls before breakfast, as the different lighting conditions throughout the day unveil varying aspects of their splendor. The renowned falls rainbow transforms with the changing angles of the sun, creating a captivating and ever-evolving spectacle, especially in the morning mist when backlit.
Today, we recommend indulging in a white-water rafting expedition (optional extra) in the Batoka Gorge beneath the towering walls below the falls. Alternatively, you may opt for other activities such as visiting the Elephant Sanctuary, taking a helicopter flight over the falls, exploring Livingstone Island, or visiting the Devil’s Pool (seasonal). In the evening, partake in the enchanting Zambezi River sunset cruise, the “Captain’s Cabin” (included), offering views of islands in the river and along the shore. Keep an eye out for elephants and hippos gracefully navigating the water, and enjoy selected drinks along with light snacks and canapés.
