This morning we’ll have a leisurely breakfast at our hotel restaurant, and meet our guide for a two-hour guided tour of Victoria Falls. Over the course of the walking tour, we’ll get to numerous lookouts, including Devil’s Cataract and Dr. David Livingstone’s statue close by reputed to be the first European to see Victoria Falls, as well as to viewpoints of Boiling Pot, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and finally, Rainbow Falls – the highest point on the cascade. After our walk, the next few hours are yours to explore and, if you’re feeling brave, indulge in one of the endless adrenaline-fuelled activities the town is known for!
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning at the hotel’s restaurant before heading out for a bike ride to explore the exciting town of Victoria Falls. Cycle along the Zambezi River, visit the famous Big Tree (a baobab tree estimated to 3,500 years old), enjoy spectacular views of the Batoka Gorge and cross the Victoria Falls Bridge. You're on your own for lunch today, so make sure to ask your guides for recommendations! We’ll gather again mid-afternoon for a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, complete with complementary drinks and snacks – it’s the photographer and explorer’s dream! After the cruise, we’ll transfer to the Boma Restaurant, where you’ll be greeted in the local languages, Shona and Ndebele, and have the opportunity to don traditional ‘chitenges’ (robes). Once you’re dressed for dinner, enjoy drinks and appetizers before taking your seats. The restaurant is partially open to the African skies and offers a vast selection of traditional Zimbabwean dishes (or western cuisine if you’d prefer). An evening of entertainment is served alongside dinner, provided by Amakwezi dancers, singers, a local storyteller, and a local healer. It’s the most perfect end to your Okavango and Victoria Falls adventure.
