Combine the highlights of Africa
Make Zimbabwe part of an African grand tour by taking advantage of direct flights between Victoria Falls and southern Africa’s main travel hubs. Head for South Africa and you can take in all the attractions of Cape Town and the winelands, feast your eyes on the Big 5 in a private Kruger reserve or self-drive your way along the Garden Route. Home to epic game viewing, Botswana and Zambia are just a flight or a short overland transfer away from Victoria Falls and travellers to Zimbabwe can also hop across to Namibia, home to giant sand dunes and haunting desert landscapes.
Famous for its elephants, the Chobe River can be experienced on a day trip from Victoria Falls but Botswana is also home to the Okavango Delta, Savuti and Moremi Game Reserve, delivering some of the best game viewing in Africa. Whether you go overland or fly, Botswana is one of the easiest countries to combine with Zimbabwe.
Looking for that unbeatable combination? It’s hard to do better than Cape Town, the Kruger and Victoria Falls. You’ll get Table Mountain, Cape Point and wine farms, whale watching and Africa’s best Big 5 viewing plus all the scenic drama of Victoria Falls – the prefect honeymoon itinerary!
You can cross the Victoria Falls border on foot to see the waterfall from Zambia but you’ll need to take a flight to explore Zambia’s legendary national parks. It’s worth it: the Lower Zambezi offers game drives, boating and thrilling canoe safaris; the South Luangwa blends its game drives with guided walking safaris, rated among the best on the continent.
