We offer memorable adventures such as with elephant rides, scenic helicopter tours of the falls, fishing for tiger fish on the Zambezi River, guided shopping at the local markets, sunset cruises, lion walks and on and on. The adventure is all around you in Victoria Falls…you could walk out your hotel to find elephants in the driveway!
Mosi-Oa-Tunya – the smoke that thunders – over a mile wide as it plunges nearly 400 ft into the Zambezi gorge below. When David Livingstone saw the Falls for the first time in 1855 he wrote “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” and today you can take the “Flight of Angels” a helicopter or light aircraft flight over the Falls which gives you the ultimate view of this magnificent wonder.
We would like to credit some of the photos in the photo area of this destination to Wilderness Safaris who is one of our partners in building custom private itineraries.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: REQUIRED!
Links to the companies we recommend:
While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times! The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible. Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.
Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues. It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.
Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.
