Victoria Falls - 4 Days 3 Nights

The Victoria Falls is a waterfall located in the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Southern Africa. The falls are some of the largest in the world and are part of two National Parks: The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia and Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls are just over 1.7 Km (355 Miles) wide and 108 meter (355 feet) high. During the wet season over 500 million liters (19 million cubic feet) of water plummets over the edge into the Zambezi River. This incredible amount of water generates a huge amount of spray which shoots 305 meter (1000 feet) into the sky and can be seen 48 Km (30 miles) away, hence the name Mosi-oa-Tunya (The smoke that thunders). The unique geography of the falls means you can watch tem face-on and get to enjoy the full force of the spray, noise and spectacular rainbows that are always present. The Victoria Falls are one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. If you’re planning a trip to Southern Africa you simply have to witness this mile-long curtain of falling water. As the explorer David Livingstone remarked when he first saw them, “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”.

Activities at Victoria Falls include viewing the falls, Bungee Jumping, White water rafting, Sundowner cruise and wildlife viewing at Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Victoria Falls is about a three hour drive from Marupa Safaris to O.R. Tambo International Airport plus another two hour flied.
