DAY 4

DEPARTURE

A last morning safari drive is followed by breakfast, after which guests are transferred to the airstrip for a chartered flight to Victoria Falls, named after the majestic falls near which it is located. The Victoria Falls is without a doubt one of the most spectacular natural sights in the entire world. The falls occur where the mighty Zambezi River stretches to approximately 1 688m wide and, from its highest point, plummets 108m meters in a thundering roar of white waters and spiraling mists. This occurrence has earned it the local name of "Mosi-oa-Tunya" - the smoke that thunders.

 

 

 

Time devoted to a Victoria Falls tour is followed by a visit to the Victoria Falls Craft Market, where some of Africa's finest artwork is on display. Guests will then be assisted with check-in at the elegant Royal Livingstone hotel.
