Wednesday: Elephant Sands to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)
Due to a normally very hectic border crossing late mornings (especially during school holidays) at Kazungula Border Post into Zimbabwe, and to optimize the time spent at Victoria Falls, we leave very early – coffee, tea & rusks available while packing.
We drive even further north, cross-border to the vibrant town of Victoria Falls in the TambezJ National Park where we will be staying for the next two nights at Victoria Falls Rest Camp. This route takes us through the Sibuyu, Kazuma and Kasane Forest Reserves where we always see herds of elephants q1d often a variety of antelope and sometimes lion, hyena and wild dog.
The campsite is situated in the middle of town, within 10 minutes walking distance of just about everything, and have pool, bar and restaurant (also take away) facilities. Your guide will assist you with exchanging currencies and bookings for optional activities that you would like to do.
Having enjoying a very welcome lunch on arrival, we enter the Rain Forest during the afternoon, strolling (in normally very wet conditions due to spray from the waterfalls) along the pathways, enjoying sightseeing and the magnificent Victoria Waterfalls, which is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
lt is 1700 meters (1.1 mile) wide, making it the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The Zimbabwean side is the best side to view the waterfall from, as 1400 meters of the waterfall is on that side, as well as the main falls, and flowing throughout the year, while the Zambian side consists of only 300 meters, and has no water flow during the winter months.
A delightful evening mealwill be prepared, and served, by your guide.
