And now to Victoria Falls, simply superb for sports-and-safari! This is the world’s largest waterfall and for centuries it has wowed travellers from all areas of Earth. Whether you and your family are serious sports fans, crazy for river cruises, or excited about animal encounters, there is something here to suit everyone!
Pick of our properties in this remarkable region is Victoria Falls River Lodge, on the banks of the Zambezi River within Zambezi National Park. Just 20 minutes from Victoria Airport, it boasts views of the Falls’ spray! The guest accommodation here is immense – quite possibly the most spacious tents we have ever seen! In total, there are 13 units, each standing grandly on its own deck overlooking the beautiful river. Travelling families can book a family suite, confident that there will be plenty of room. There are plenty of creature comforts too – air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini bar, tea/coffee maker, 2-way radio, electronic safe, complimentary slippers and bathrobe, and much more! The en-suite facilities are very well appointed, featuring indoor and outdoor showers as well as a freestanding bath. And you even get your very own plunge pool!
If you can bear to leave your splendid suite, the River Lodge provides loads of things to do. You can enjoy a morning or afternoon game drive, head out on walking safari, and take part in a fishing trip! Canoe safaris and sunset cruises are also available. And, of course, you can pop to the Falls for a full range of sports activities – white water rafting, bungee jumping, bridge swinging, bridge sliding! Helicopter and microlight flights are possible too. Back at the Lodge, there are some great options for children – for example, Young Bushwackers introduces the little ones to nature, while Fables by Firelight invites the youngsters to listen to traditional tales from Africa as they munch on treats cooked over the bonfire. It is this attention to detail that makes River Lodge our standout property in Vic Falls – and it is good value too!
