- Victoria Falls Zimbabwe
The most popular travel combinations
Whether you open your tour with this world wonder or conclude with it, Victoria Falls makes an unforgettable addition to an African safari. A natural combination with Zimbabwe’s premier safari destinations – Hwange, Mana Pools and Matusadona – it is also accessible overland from Botswana and is easily reached by air from southern Africa’s travel hubs – Johannesburg, Cape Town, Windhoek and Maun (Okavango Delta). Below are the most popular travel combinations with Victoria Falls Zimbabwe but if you are planning to travel to East Africa, then Victoria Falls lies nicely within reach too – ask us how.
Botswana’s big game showpiece is just a couple of hours’ drive from Victoria Falls. Home to healthy numbers of animals year round, the Chobe River is at its best in the dry season when thousands of elephants and buffalo arrive to share the river banks with antelope, giraffe and zebra. You can pop across for a day trip or add a few nights in Botswana onto your itinerary. Chobe’s predator-rich Savuti region is also recommended.
Combine Africa’s best Big 5 game viewing with Victoria Falls via Johannesburg. The Kruger National Park has the pedigree but if you want virtually guaranteed Big 5 sightings, head for the Sabi Sands Private Reserve. You’ll find a wide range of accommodation and safari activities plus all the advantages of privately-managed reserves: exclusive game sightings, night drives and off-road driving. Ranking among the best in Africa, Sabi’s safari lodges are highly recommended for honeymooners.
Africa’s favourite city is within easy reach of Victoria Falls via Johannesburg. A year-round destination, Cape Town has an almost unlimited list of activities and adventures. Home to iconic Table Mountain, the city offers everything from hiking, paragliding and biking tours to shark-cage diving, whale watching and kayaking. You can visit Robben Island, Boulders Beach penguin colony and the Cape Winelands and still have time for a little retail therapy at the got-it-all V&A Waterfront.
