Victoria Falls Helicopter Ride (Zambia) – $160.00

You don’t want to miss the opportunity to see Victoria Falls from above. Watch the raging Zambezi River make its way toward the gorge, forming the largest waterfall in the world. During your 15 minute ride, you will have time to take in the incredible views while snapping as many pictures as you like. You may be lucky enough to see some giraffes and elephants in the surrounding landscape and even catch a rainbow over the falls.

Victoria Falls River Rafting (Zambia) – $160.00

Take the opportunity to go whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River while Victoria Falls roars above. Depart in the morning and head to the river, spend the morning navigating through the canyon that forms the famous falls. This adrenaline filled day will be one to remember. Please note: River conditions and activity pricing vary depending on the seasons. High water season is from about February to July. Low water season generally runs from August to January each year – this is when the Zambezi is at its very wildest. The “closed season” is dependent on the season?s rains, and usually is from March to April; during this time rafting on the river is not permitted. This activity price excludes a $10 park entrance fee.

My Own Room – $579.00

If you’re traveling solo and would prefer to have your own private room throughout your trip, select this option during the online booking process.
