This Victoria Falls Tour Package begins with a collection from the international airport in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. From the airport, you are transferred to the Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel and assisted with check-in at this comfortable hotel. The Victoria Falls Rainbow Hotel is located within walking distance of the mighty Victoria Falls waterfall, as well as the center of Victoria Falls town.
Zambezi River Sunset Cruise
In the afternoon we embark on our scenic sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, departing at around 15:30. The cruise takes about two hours, traveling downstream towards Vic Falls as far as Palm Island, before turning back upstream.
The leisurely Zambezi River cruise is the ideal way to end your first day at Victoria Falls, catching a spectacular African sunset over the tranquil river and bush. The laid-back boat cruise includes sundowners and tasty snacks to complete the experience. Hippos and crocodiles are commonly spotted from the boat, along with various other wild animals such as elephants, giraffes, buffalos, and even rhinos. An amazing array of birds can also be sighted on this mellow-paced cruise in nature.
Cultural Boma Dinner
Returning from our relaxing sunset boat cruise we head to The Boma restaurant for a unique African culinary and cultural experience. Tucked away in an indigenous forest, The Boma offers warm Zimbabwean hospitality and tasty traditional cuisine under starry African skies. It's an evening set to delight the senses - filled with the aromas, sights, flavors, and beats of Africa. Tuck into the marvelous selection of Zimbabwean specialties, from game and potjiekos (meat stew) to fish and vegetarian dishes. The Boma is famous for its warthog fillet and the adventurous can try ethnic delicacies such as Mopani worms, deep-fried kapenta fish, and groundnuts.
Amakwezi traditional performers entertain diners with their lively song and dance, and after dinner, a local sangoma (traditional storyteller) enthralls visitors with rich tales of folklore and Zimbabwean heritage. The local customs (beer tasting and handwashing rituals) bring special detail to the night, and the mysterious witch doctor adds intrigue to this cultural feast. The evening ends on a high note with a live drumming session, which you're welcome to join.
